Twenty-fours hours a day for the rest of our lives, the powers that be are hard at work dumbing us to death."
  • (Adrien Brody) "So to defend ourselves, and fight against assimilating this dullness into our thought processes, we must learn to read. To stimulate our own imagination, to cultivate our own consciousness, our own belief systems. We all need skills to defend, to preserve, our own minds."
