People everywhere enjoy believing things that they know are not true. It spares them the ordeal of thinking for themselves and taking responsibility for what they know. --Brooks Atkinson (1894-1984) _Once Around the Sun_ [1951], "February 2nd"

In every age "the good old days" were a myth. No one ever thought they were good at the time. For every age has consisted of crises that seemed intolerable to the people who lived through them.--Brooks Atkinson (1894- )_Once Around the Sun_ [1951], "February 8"

The evil that men do lives on the front pages of greedy newpapers, but the good is oft interred apathetically inside.- Brooks Atkinson, "December 11," Once Around the Sun (1951)
