Quotable Quotes: Zombies

With all the talk of zombie banks, how about a few words (and sounds) about zombies.

“And what about Zombies? You never hear from Zombies! That's the trouble with Zombies, they're unreliable! I say if you're going to go for the Angel bullshit you might as well go for the Zombie package as well.”
George Carlin

“The good, say the mystics of spirit, is God, a being whose only definition is that he is beyond man's power to conceive - a definition that invalidates man's consciousness and nullifies his concepts of existence. The good, say the mystics of muscle, is Society - a thing which they define as an organism that possesses no physical form, a super-being embodied in no one in particular and everyone in general except yourself.... The purpose of man's life, say both, is to become an abject zombie who serves a purpose he does not know, for reasons he is not to question.”
Ayn Rand

“Yeah, I know I'm ugly... I said to a bartender, 'Make me a zombie.' He said 'God beat me to it.'”
Rodney Dangerfield

Vinny - Your Ayn Rand quote makes it seem like she thinks the purpose of man's life is to become a Zombie, which couldn't be further from the truth. The quote comes from Atlas Shrugged, and your "..." leaves out the very important phrase ",say both,", in which she is referring to the "mystics of spirit" - those who say that good comes from God and it is beyond man's power to conceive, and the "mystics of muscle", those who use force to create a Socialistic collectivism to serve the ambiguous embodient of public good. Please either remove this quote or use it in its full context.
