This is old Ali. Past-his-prime Ali. But when he needed it, he could still summon the “float like a butterfly.”

The written word is all that stands between memory and oblivion. Without books as our anchors, we are cast adrift, neither teaching nor learning. They are windows on the past, mirrors on the present, and prisms reflecting all possible futures. Books are lighthouses erected in the dark sea of time.

Mothafreakin’ Disney’s Gargoyles, Season 2, Episode 4, “A Lighthouse In The Sea of Time.”

I know, right?

Not just “Disney”. A person came up with those words. Let’s not lose the talent, the gifted guy, in the shadow of the corporation, shall we?

The writer’s name is Greg Weisman.

Long live Greg, that shit was amazing.

I am so sick and tired of the downgrading of oral cultures by ideas like this. The hell. Why do writing cultures pretend that oral cultures didn’t have damn good ways of preserving knowledge? And learning and teaching? Ya’ll need to sit down and keep still with this rubbish. 

(via talesofthestarshipregeneration)

Reblogging for last comment cause yeah, since most of early written works (like cultural myths, the Bible and folk tales to name a few) were all oral stories first.

People place way too much value on stacks of ink-stained wood pulp (books) in comparison to the ideas and knowledge being communicated within them. Burn every book in the world and people will still find ways to create and remember and share stories.

(via bookoisseur)

Yeah, that last bit, “People place way too much value on stacks of ink-stained pulp”? Bullshit. Yes, the oral tradition has value. But the reason we have books is so that everyone has access to this information. Not just the ones who know a guy who happens to know how to split the goddamn atom. Or build a house. Or freeze water without electricity. Or all of Shakespeare’s sonnets. By heart.

Information, and the access to it, is the silver bullet. It is the only thing that will keep the beasts of poverty, of apathy, of soul-smashing misery at bay. Inside every library is the ammunition with which you could conquer the world, should you have the will.

I did not downgrade my bike when I got old enough to drive a car. I still tell stories to my children. Stories of my family, of my people, that were never written down. Stories of things that happened to me and only to me.

But progress is called that for a reason. Let’s not go willingly back into the dark. Not when we don’t have to. 

Let’s not be fucking morons.

Well, because to Tolkien, everything black is evil and everything white is purest of the pure.

I mean, when Saruman the White turns into a bad guy, he gets stripped of his “the White” title. Gandalf has to be brought back from the dead — not because he’s worked some sort of magic — but because there needs to be SOMEONE pure of heart to be “the White.” White cannot ever be associated with evil. 

A single strand of Galadriel’s blond hair was one Middle-earthling’s greatest desire.
