"The world, it seems, is peopled by sensitive souls, too weak to be confronted by strong opinions, controversial statements and provocative arguments.   As a result we all have to live our lives as if in a church service   —   all hushed tones and reverential attitudes, and no bad language, or bad thoughts.   Yet it is the freedom to blaspheme, to transgress, to move beyond the pale that is at heart of all intellectual, artistic and political endeavour.   Far from censoring offensive speech, a vibrant and diverse society should encourage it.   In any society that is not uniform, grey and homogenous there are bound to be clashes of viewpoints.   Inevitably some people will find certain ideas objectionable.   This is all for the good.   For it is the heretics who take society forward.   From Galileo's vision of the universe to Darwin's theory of evolution, from the drive towards secularism to the struggle for equal rights, every scientific or social advance worth having began by outraging the conventions of its time.   Without such heresies and transgressions, society may be more ordered, and more polite, but it will also be less progressive and less alive."

"A stupid man's report of what a clever man says is never accurate because he unconsciously translates what he hears into something he can understand."
