False Riches Quote: I think any start has to be a false start because really there's no way to start. You just have to force yourself to sit down and turn off the quality censor.

But it gets more persistent. And the moment you know it's really a false start is when you start ... it's hard to put into words.

False Riches Quotes: Take the particular trick of false names. It seems to us particularly odious. We think when we show our contempt for those who use this subterfuge that we are giving them no more than they deserve. It is a meanness which we associate with criminals and vagabonds; a piece of crawling and sneaking...Men whose race is universally known, will unblushingly adopt a false name as a mask, and after a year or two pretend to treat it as an insult if their original and true name be used in its place.

Sayings about False Riches: All religions, plainly and simply, cannot be true. Some beliefs are false, and we know them to be false.

But if the denial of the statement is also true, then all religions are not true.
