Quote Left A well-known scientist (some say it was Bertrand Russell) once gave a public lecture on astronomy. He described how the earth orbits around the sun and how the sun, in turn, orbits around the center of a vast collection of stars called our galaxy. At the end of the lecture a little old lady at the back of the room got up and said 'What you have told us is rubbish. The world is really a flat plate supported on the back of a giant tortoise.' The scientist gave a superior smile before replying, 'What is the turtle standing on' 'You're very clever, young man, very clever,' said the little old lady. 'But it's turtles all the way down.'

Quote Left When you get right down to it, the Safety Lecture is a silly idea. I mean, if the passengers really thought the plane was going to crash, they wouldn't get on it in the first place, let alone learn how to get an adequate oxygen supply on the way down. by Quote Right
Quote Left Museums, museums, museums, object-lessons rigged out to illustrate the unsound theories of archaeologists, crazy attempts to co-ordinate and get into a fixed order that which has no fixed order and will not be co-coordinated!

Quote Left Is no one inspired by our present picture of the universe? Our poets do not write about it; our artists do not try to portray this remarkable thing. The value of science remains unsung by singers: you are reduced to hearing not a song or poem, but an evening lecture about it. This is not yet a scientific age. Quote Right
Quote Left Most people tire of a lecture in 10 minutes clever people can do it in 5. Sensible people never go to lectures at all. Quote Right
Quote Left A lecture is much more of a dialogue than many of you probably realize. Quote Right
Quote Left I never lecture, not because I am shy or a bad speaker, but simply because I detest the sort of people who go to lectures and don't want to meet them. Quote Right
Quote Left I know what death and destruction is and I know how much people suffer, ... And it breaks my heart. I pray for these people every night. So don't lecture me about knowing what disaster is like. Quote Right
Quote Left Before I came here I was confused about this subject. Having listened to your lecture I am still confused. But on a higher level. Quote Right
Quote Left People who get through life dependent on other people's possessions are always the first to lecture you on how little possessions count. Quote Right

Quote Left When I give a lecture, I accept that people look at their watches, but what I do not tolerate is when they look at it and raise it to their ear to find out if it stopped. Quote Right

Quote Left In His kingdom of corpses, God has been heard to speak in many enraged discourses, high from some mountain peak where He’s lectured men on “compassion” while the sparrows around Him fell and babes, for His meager ration of rain, died and went to hell, unbaptized, for that’s His fashion. ('In His Kingdom of Corpses' by Michael R. Burch) Quote Right
