Another brilliant quote from a dead dude

20. May 2009

Last Christmas I was gifted a daily desk calendar featuring quotes from the 20th Century’s most brilliant commedian, George Carlin. I’ve been sharing some of the shorter quotes via Twitter, but today’s entry was a bit long and so wonderful that I’m sharing it via my blog:

To my way of thinking, men have only one real problem: other men. That’s where all the trouble starts. A long time ago, men gave away their power. To other men: princes, kings, wizards, generals, and high priests. They gave it away, because they believed what these other men told them. They bought the okeydoke. The bullshit. Men always buy the okeydoke when it comes from other men.

Man, I miss that dude.
