**Random Quote:** *Ordinarily, people are anxious to test their theories
in practice, to learn from experience, but those who wield power are so
anxious to establish the myth of their own infallibility that they turn
their backs on the truth as squarely as they can. Politics means nothing
to me. I don’t like people who are indifferent to the truth.* – Boris
Pasternak
