Many orthodox people speak as though it were the business of sceptics to disprove received dogmas rather than of dogmatists to prove them. This is, of course, a mistake. If I were to suggest that between the Earth and Mars there is a china teapot revolving about the sun in an elliptical orbit, nobody would be able to disprove my assertion provided I were careful to add that the teapot is too small to be revealed even by our most powerful telescopes. But if I were to go on to say that, since my assertion cannot be disproved, it is intolerable presumption on the part of human reason to doubt it, I should rightly be thought to be talking nonsense. If, however, the existence of such a teapot were affirmed in ancient books, taught as the sacred truth every Sunday, and instilled into the minds of children at school, hesitation to believe in its existence would become a mark of eccentricity and entitle the doubter to the attentions of the psychiatrist in an enlightened age or of the Inquisitor in an earlier time.

Bertrand Russell.

Some Zsa Zsa Gabor quotes:

"I don't remember anybody's name. How do you think the 'dahling' thing got started?"

"I'm a marvelous housekeeper. Every time I leave a man, I keep his house."

"I know nothing about sex, because I was always married."

"You never really know a man until you have divorced him."

"A man in love is incomplete until he has married. Then he's finished."

"The only way to learn a language properly, in fact, is to marry a man of that nationality. You get what they call in Europe a 'sleeping dictionary.' Of course, I have only been married five times, and I speak seven languages. I'm still trying to remember where I picked up the other two."

"How many husbands have I had? You mean apart from my own?"

"I believe in large families: every woman should have at least three husbands."

"Conrad Hilton was very generous to me in the divorce settlement. He gave me 5000 Gideon Bibles."

"I want a man who's kind and understanding. Is that too much to ask of a millionaire?"
