Nick Dandalos Quote
“If you expect nothing from somebody you are never disappointed.”
[The Bell Jar (1963)]
“Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; and no man ever had a distinct idea of the trinity. It is the mere Abracadabra of the mountebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus.”
[Letter to Francis Adrian Van der Kemp (30 July 1816), denouncing the doctrine of the Trinity - 1810s]
