Phrase of the day August 16th 2010
"From that imbalance rose the tragic results of the coming together of two worlds. It was the extermination of an ancient dream by the frenzy of a modern one, the destruction of myths by a desire for power. It was gold, modern weapons, and rational thought pitted against magic and gods: the outcome could not have been otherwise."Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio on The Mexican Dream: Or, The Interrupted Thought of Amerindian Civilizations.
