Cantina Quote o' The Week: William Blake

"When I tell the truth, it is not for the sake of convincing those who do not know it, but for the sake of defending those that do."

-William Blake

Of course, Blake was a visionary, a poet and artist who saw art as life and science as death, so his truth can't be understood as scientific truth.  Still, an excellent and useful quote, especially when it comes to dickish arguments.

If you're a metal fan, you really mustn't miss Bruce Dickinson's The Chemical Wedding, which is not only superb metal but injects Blake right through the soundstream into your brain, which isn't a bad way at all to spend an evening.
