Vilify Quotes (2 quotes)
Heres to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. Theyre not fond of rules. You can quote them. Disagree with them. Glorify or vilify them. But the only thing you cant do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
The animals of the Burgess Shale are holy objectsin the unconventional sense that this word conveys in some cultures. We do not place them on pedestals and worship from afar. We climb mountains and dynamite hillsides to find them. We quarry them, split them, carve them, draw them, and dissect them, struggling to wrest their secrets. We vilify and curse them for their damnable intransigence. They are grubby little creatures of a sea floor 530 million years old, but we greet them with awe because they are the Old Ones, and they are trying to tell us something.
