Quote of the Day - 'Logical Insanity'

"Do not have a criticism, so to say, about my work, that 'Korzybski fancies that humans are like geometry; there is a difference between geometry and a human being.' I didn't find it that way, because I have found that humans, even 'insane' are extremely logical provided you trace their premises, except their premises have no realization in actuality. So that's the main point, not a problem of logic. From some premises, some consequences follow." 
——Alfred Korzybski, 1947
