“There has always been a certain amount of robotism in the world. Throughout history, millions have been bereft of their senses by those who have known how to push the right emotional button. Witness the great moments of history, the Crusades, the French and Russian revolutions, countless wars. At every point between global and community affairs, robotism has played its part.”
Every Day is Christmas

This is one in a series of quotations.
I’ve been working, from time to time, on a book of quotations for many years. I call it, “The Mind Boggles”, from one of my favorite quotations. I do source quotations a bit differently from a lot of people. In the case of a work of a fiction, I consider that the character said the line…not the author. As a bit of an author myself (in a minor way), I can tell you…my characters definitely say things that I would never say. These are all quotations that I’ve collected myself: I’ve read the book, seen the TV episode, and so on.
Hope you enjoy them!
