Worthwhile Quotations 22 June 2010

I’m not usually one for quotes, but this one fits for twenty-somethings.

Some writers, the young and the dim ones, think being near something important makes them important so they should act and sound important which will, somehow, make their audience important, too. Then, as soon as everybody is filled with a sufficient sense of importance, Something Will Be Done. It’s not the truth. Thirty years of acting and sounding important about the Holocaust did nothing to prevent Cambodia.

From P. J. O’Rourke’s Holidays in Hell
