Cynical Quotations

The function of an adage is to provide a mindless and popular justification for virtually any point of view – often of contradictory nature – regarding almost any situation. Adages exist for the sole purpose of propping up the vast majority who are distinctly lacking of functional neurons.

— Charles Gilbert
