Quotations
Quote of the Day

I do not know who first invented the myth of sexual equality. But it is a myth willfully fostered and nourished by certain semi-scientists and other fiction writers. And it has done more, I suspect, to unsettle marital happiness than any other false doctrine of this myth-ridden age.
View quotes by Phyllis McGinley

A myth is, of course, not a fairy story. It is the presentation of facts belonging to one category in the idioms appropriate to another. To explore a myth is accordingly not to deny the facts but to re-allocate them.
View quotes by Gilbert Ryle

The first myth of management is that it exists. The second myth of management is that success equals skill.
View quotes by Robert Heller

I would define a myth as a story that has survived.
View quotes by John Boorman

A myth is a religion in which no one any longer believes.
View quotes by James Feibleman

Religion often partakes of the myth of progress that shields us from the terrors of an uncertain future.

View quotes by Frank Herbert

The beauty myth moves for men as a mirage; its power lies in its ever-receding nature. When the gap is closed, the lover embraces only his own disillusion.
View quotes by Herman Melville

The existence of any pure race with special endowments is a myth, as is the belief that there are races all of whose members are foredoomed to eternal inferiority.
View quotes by Franz Boas

Each religion, by the help of more or less myth, which it takes more or less seriously, proposes some method of fortifying the human soul and enabling it to make its peace with its destiny.

View quotes by George Santayana

One of the things that will keep The Front Page burning bright as long as newspapers are alive is the myth that newspapermen are breezy and raffish.
View quotes by Jay Carr

It's a great myth that the British public want our soldiers to be sent into harm's way on a bogus prospectus for ignoble reasons. There is nothing patriotic about that. It is the opposite of patriotism.
View quotes by George Galloway

The kindly God who lovingly fashioned each and every one of us and sprinkled the sky with shining stars for our delight - that God is, like Santa Claus, a myth of childhood, not anything a sane, undeluded adult could literally believe in.
View quotes by Daniel Dennett

Myth is an attempt to narrate a whole human experience, of which the purpose is too deep, going too deep in the blood and soul, for mental explanation or description.
View quotes by D H Lawrence

Out with stereotypes, feminism proclaims. But stereotypes are the west's stunning sexual personae, the vehicles of art's assault against nature. The moment there is imagination, there is myth.

View quotes by Camille Paglia

I don't like the word 'superstar'. It has ridiculous implications. These words - star, stupor, superstar, stupid star - they're misleading. It's a myth.
View quotes by Barbra Streisand
