  • Anonymous graffitied subway poem, sighted on the A train, New York City

    "Justification for Knowing Nothing:
    The speed of light is now known to vary
    Fact changes--relax!
    Argue your discourse of method all you like
    But get off your ass to commit action.
    Do not lie down in cement.
    Cause and effect will not affect the essence of doubt.
    Learn to march and if the water drags you down,
    Learn to swim."
