Good writers define reality; bad ones merely restate it.

-- Edward Albee

In other words, an excellent writer is one who explains things so authoritatively that 30 generations will be unable to shed its fallacies. A bad writer does a reality check, to see if that's what you really meant.

Another way of saying it would be: astronomers
can only figure out what the universe is.
Sacred cows, however, can live millions of lives
during a universe.
