Quote of the day–Maxim Gorky

Lies–there you have the religion of slaves and taskmasters. Truth is the god of the free man.

Maxim Gorky
Russian novelist, playwright.
The Lower Depths (1902)
[From Wikipedia (link above), “The theme of harsh truth versus the comforting lie pervades the play from start to finish, as most of the characters choose to deceive themselves from the bleak reality of their condition.”

A passing thought of Half-Truth Henigan and company reminded me of this quote.–Joe]

  1. You’re just angry that there’s a black man in the whitehouse. Gorky was probably a racist too, along with having been bought out by the insurance companies and talk radio.
