  • If religion is the opiate of the people, tradition is an even more sinister analgesic, simply because it rarely appears sinister. If religion is a tight band, a throbbing vein, and a needle, tradition is a far homelier concoction: poppy seeds ground into tea; a sweet cocoa drink laced with cocaine; the kind of thing your grandmother might have made.
    (Zadie Smith, "White Teeth")

  • When the male organ of a man stands erect, two thirds of his intelect go away. And one third of his religion.
    (Zadie Smith, "White Teeth")
