“It’s turtles all the way down”

I stumbled upon a good one by Henry David Thoreau:

Men are making speeches… all over the country, but each expresses only
the thought, or the want of thought, of the multitude. No man stands on
truth. They are merely banded together as usual, one leaning on another
and all together on nothing; as the Hindoos made the world rest on an
elephant, and the elephant on a tortoise, and had nothing to put under
the tortoise.

If you don’t get the reference in the title, try this.

I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances. Read More
