Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.

David Hockney

He "suffers" from synesthesia.

Please, don't ever use me as a source of reliable criticism. I have an entirely whacked view of the world, and depending on my mood, I will either be brutally honest, perhaps even cruelly so, or I will be tactful, polite, and utterly benign. I am what you would call... reliably unreliable.

For the sake of your well-being, don't ever respect my opinion. I certainly don't.

That's why I am utterly in love with things that can be reliably verified by people other than myself.

Thank you, I am certain that I didn't come up with it, but I have no idea where I heard it first.
