"Of all the classes of men, I dislike most those who make their
livings by talking -- actors, clergymen, politicians, pedagogues, and so on.
All of them participate in the shallow false pretenses of the actor who
is their archetype. It is almost impossible to imagine a talker who
sticks to the facts. Carried away by the sound of his own voice and the
applause of the groundlings, he makes inevitably the jump from logic to
mere rhetoric."
-- H.L. Mencken
