On the Folly of Men is the magnum opus of the famed satirist Ontillas.[1]


“There are three, and only three, kinds of men in the world: cynics, fanatics, and Mandate Schoolmen.”[2]

“Men are forever pointing at others, which is why I always follow the knuckle and not the nail.”[3]

“They strike down the weak and call it justice. They ungird their loins and call it reparation. They bark like dogs and call it reason.”[4]

“Of course we make crutches of one another. Why else would we crawl when we lose our lovers?”[5]

“As a miller once told me, when the gears do not meet, they become as teeth. So it is with men and their machinations.”[6]
