Skeptical Quote of the Week.

‘This is the excellent foppery of the world, that, when we are sick in fortune – often the surfeits of our own behaviour – we make guilty of our disasters the sun, the moon, and the stars, as if we were villains on necessity; fools by heavenly compulsion; knaves, thieves, and treachers by spherical predominance; drunkards, liars, and adulterers by an enforced obedience of planetary influence; and all that we are evil in, by a divine thrusting on.’ Edmund in King Lear by William Shakespeare
