.“...while democracy can be periodically delayed,
It can never be permanently defeated.
In this truth, in this faith we trust.
For while we have our eyes on the future,
History has its eyes on us.”

From the Inaugural poem "The Hill We Climb", Amanda Gorman

Haven’t you noticed that the roses in the shops have lost their scent?
That they no longer smell like roses.
Doesn’t that frighten you?
Does anyone know what I’m talking about?
Can I get a witness in this room?

From "Ballerina" by Penny Arcade

man, I just remembered I used to quote
Karl Marx and say his favorite motto was
“Doubt everything” with the everything one word
in the translation I read
but he might have meant it as two separate words

From "Question Everything" by Michael Lally
