Quote from W.P. Kinsella

“Everyone who takes themselves too seriously is absurd: politicians, religious leaders, academics, activists of every ilk. It is my observation that almost without exception, incompetent people are in positions of power. Society survives because of luck, not good management.”

— W.P. Kinsella, The Thrill of the Grass (intro)
