"Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened." Winston Churchill

   ***

David Rockefeller addressed the Trilateral Commission in June of 1991: "We are grateful to 'The Washington Post', 'The New York Times', "Time Magazine', and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respect their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march toward world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodeterminism practiced in past centuries."

A toast which journalist John Swinton gave at the New York Press Club in 1953: "There is no such thing at this date of the world's history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.

The business of journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?

We are the tools of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes."

Саша-"шпион" учит латиносов английскому по книжке Jim Witherspoon, Ph.D. "English Comes Alive!". Из chapter 1 "Alert them with these":


"Give the students humorous or unusual topics, such as
  
how I made my first $1,000,000
  
my years as a spy
  
my connection with the American President
  
my studies of chimpanzees in Africa"

Как в точку все, ничего "unusual". Особенно порадовало расположение двух последних тем, идущих одна за другой.

"If you have to ask the cost of owning a yacht, you can't afford it."
J.P. Morgan

   ***

"Of the many imprisonments possible in our world, one of the worst must be to be inarticulate - to be unable to tell another person what you really feel."
Roger Ebert

   ***

"Every person needs to take one day away. A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future... a day in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for."
Maya Angelou
