I apologize  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The world is full of burled and gnarly knobs on which you can hang a metaphysical system. If you must  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The axiom of conditioned repetition, like the binomial theorem, is nothing but a piece of insolence  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Through logic and inference we can prove anything. Therefore, logic and inference, in contrast to ordinary daily living experience, are secondary instruments of knowledge. Probably tertiary  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Proverbs save us the trouble of thinking. What we call folk wisdom is often no more than a kind of expedient stupidity  (Edward Abbey Quotes) In metaphysics, the notion that earth and all that’s on it is a mental construct is the product of people who spend their lives inside rooms. It is an indoor philosophy  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The absurd vanity of metaphysicians who like to imagine that they create the world by thinking about it  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The earth is real. Only a fool, milking his cow, denies the cow’s reality  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The ideal society can be described, quite simply, as that in which no man has the power of means to coerce others  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The purpose and function of government is not to preside over change but to prevent change.

The defiance of power, especially great or overwhelming power, exalts and glorifies the rebel  (Edward Abbey Quotes) One can imagine a sane, healthy, cheerful human society based on no more than the principles of common sense, as validated each day by work, play, and living experience. But this remains the most utopian and fantastic of ideals  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Representative government has broken down. Our politicians represent not the people who vote for them but the commercial interests who finance their election campaigns. We have the best politicians that money can buy  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Terrorism: deadly violence against humans and other living things, usually conducted by government against its own people  (Edward Abbey Quotes) A leader leads from in front, by the power of example. A ruler pushes from behind, by means of the club, the whip, the power of fear  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The rebel is doomed to a violent death.
