Wanda: [after Otto breaks in on Wanda and Archie in Archie's flat and hangs him out the window] I was dealing with something delicate, Otto. I'm setting up a guy who's incredibly important to us, who's going to tell me where the loot is and if they're going to come and arrest you. And you come loping in like Rambo without a jockstrap and you dangle him out a fifth-floor window. Now, was that smart? Was it shrewd? Was it good tactics? Or was it stupid?
Otto West: Don't call me stupid.
Wanda: Oh, right! To call you stupid would be an insult to stupid people! I've known sheep that could outwit you. I've worn dresses with higher IQs. But you think you're an intellectual, don't you, ape?
Otto West: Apes don't read philosophy.
Wanda: Yes they do, Otto. They just don't understand it. Now let me correct you on a couple of things, OK? Aristotle was not Belgian. The central message of Buddhism is not "Every man for himself." And the London Underground is not a political movement. Those are all mistakes, Otto. I looked them up.

"George Smiley: I've been reviewing my situation in the last half-hour of hell, and I've come to a very grave decision. After a lifetime of living by my wits, and on my memory, I shall give myself up full-time to the profession of forgetting. I'm going to put an end to some emotional attachments with have long outlived their purpose. Namely the Circus, this house, my whole past. I shall sell up and buy a cottage, in the Cotswolds, I think. Steeple Aston sounds about right. Do I need overnight things? 
Peter Guillam: I'm not taking any. 
George Smiley: There I shall establish myself as a mild eccentric. Discursive, withdrawn, but posessing one or two lovable habits, such as muttering to myself as I bumble along innocent pavements. I shall become an oak of my own generation. 
"

Communism and fascism are both subsets of socialism, another one is social-democracy. Meanwhile, socialism itself is the political-economic system of humanists. It differs very little from islamic conceptions of tyranny when you think about it.

Really? Ayn Rand as someone who is quotable? Barry Goldwater said the same thing but he probably said it much more eloquently.

You are probably right, ultimately she was an atheist so she does have that creepy libertarian vibe about her whole paradigm.

I just stumbled on her quote about this while not looking for it, and I agree that I would not normally have quoted her.

Her looks remind one of Virginia Woolf or Nancy Kulp. I tried reading her stuff but found it stuffy & boring. She single handedly snuffed my interest in rolling stock.

She was the dilitante girlfriend of a Rosthchild, making the libertarian case from the perch of her position of extreme luxury.

However, while her book is indeed dry and boring, I can appreciate the analogy of the railway for explaining the vigor of capitalism and rigor of socialism... working for a class one now doing workforce planning really teaches a big deal about how it all weaves itself into something that powers industrial economies and war itself in very fundamental ways.

Also reminds me of Amelia Earhart's ugly cousin. It seems Earhart caused quite a ripple with her mode of dress. I suppose her crossdressing was through necessity. Let's face it, an Edwardian dress with puffy shoulders is just not practical for long range flights.

Women must pay for everything. They do get more glory than men for comparable feats, but, they also get more notoriety when they crash.
