[NOTE: All quotations are by Timothy Leary.]

“In my function as a [college] lecturer, it’s my obligation, it’s my task, it’s my duty to instigate irreverence for authority, questioning of authority.”

“The first narcotics bust in history is Jehovah busting Adam and Eve for eating of the fruit of the tree of knowledge.”

“We’re getting to one of those moments, one of those great moments in history, when evolution is going to happen.”

“At all costs avoid terminal adulthood.”

“You are as old as the last time you reprogrammed your brain or changed your mind.”
