The Legends Must Be True



"... the only explanation possible is that the legends must be true." -- John H. Parker, archaeologist, The Archaeology of Rome, 1877

"... all the talk, all the legends, must be true." -- Paige W. Christiansen, historian, The Story of Mining in New Mexico, 1975

"During my researches into the origin of the Micronians [Homo sapiens] in our most ancient [Zentraedi] records I found an old legend. ... It presented a warning to the Zentraedis [giants] to keep our hands off any Micronian planet. ... It is my considered opinion my Lord [Breetai] that we should cease relations with this planet [Earth] immediately." -- Steve Kramer, writer, Exedore, Zentraedi Minister of Affairs, Robotech: The Macross Saga, Episode 5: Transformation, March 8th 1985

"Then the legends must be true." -- Steve Kramer, writer, Exedore, Zentraedi Minister of Affairs, Robotech: The Macross Saga, Episode 23: Reckless, April 3rd 1985

OIM,

Looks like your quote/clip box is emptying out!

What is a "quote/clip box"?

Why do you think mine is emptying out? Would you help me fill it back up?

What does your comment have to do with the content of this post?

OIM,

If you don't know what is "quote/clip box" how would you think of me thinking of it emptying out?

You don't need my help in filling... You will go to Thunderbolt site and the rest will be history...

Your post itself is legendary!

"...I must appeal to experience and observation whether I am in the right: the best way to come to truth being to examine things as really they are, and not to conclude they are, as we fancy of ourselves, or have been taught by others to imagine."

John Locke
Essay Concerning Human Understanding
Bk II, Ch. XI, #15

Not really... they can be fabrications, lies, fiction or allegory... but true?

Not really. Maybe, possibly. But not "must be."
