Quote of the Day.
(A)s a rule, people don’t want to read classics, not even if they’re free. If somehow you were able pry them away from their televisions long enough to read the book aloud to them, I’m convinced that before long they would stick their fingers in their ears and start writhing as if they were in agony, screaming, “The thinking! It hurts! My brain…all ‘splodey! Oh nooo!”
And yet, they vote. (Which explains the continuing decline in the quality of our elected officials.)
This QotD brought to you by Breda. There’s another good quote in that one, by Ray Bradbury.
