Beware of False Prophets 2

Here is a memorable quotation, with thanks to Michael Gilleland, master blogger:

Fürchte dich vor jener transzendenten Ventriloquenz des Schwärmers, womit er dir glauben macht etwas was auf der Erde gesprochen ist käme vom Himmel.

Beware of that transcendental ventriloquism of the zealot, by means of which he makes you believe that something said on earth comes from heaven.

Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-1799)
