Famous quotes containing the words information and/or general:

    In the information age, you don’t teach philosophy as they did after feudalism. You perform it. If Aristotle were alive today he’d have a talk show.
    Timothy Leary (b. 1920)

    The General Strike has taught the working class more in four days than years of talking could have done.
    —A.J. (Arthur James)
