Quotable Quotes

"It is difficult to distinguish fact from legend... I have found no consensus on what is fact; it depends on the viewpoint. Interestingly enough, legend - which is by definition distorted - gives a far more acceptable view of events. Everyone agrees on legend, but nobody agrees on facts."
-Michael Coney

I cracked up when I read this today... Am I the only one who finds this funny?

    What a way to say absolutely nothing new with many words. Ultimately in this world truth is relative. It seems that legend should be less acceptable and facts should stand. It all depends on what the basis of these"facts" are.


Stop in for a chat! I love to hear what you have to say ~
