Cynic: A blackguard whose faulty vision sees things as they are, not as they ought to be. Words ought to be a little wild for they are the assaults of thought on the unthinking. History: An account mostly false, of events mostly unimportant, which are brought about by rulers mostly knaves, and soldiers mostly fools. Minds are like parachutes. They only function when they are open. Television has brought back murder into the home - where it belongs. Anyone who sees and paints a sky green and fields blue ought to be sterilized.
