"I find purer philosophy in a poem than in a
conclusion of geometry, a chemical analysis,
or a physical law."

"first they came for the communists, and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a communist.
then they came for the jews, and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a jew.
then they came for the catholics, and I didn’t speak up,
because I was a protestant.
then they came for me, and by that time
there was no one left to speak up for me."
Rev. Martin Niemoller, 1945.
