Knarly Saturday Trivia
And she'll have fun, fun, fun 'til her daddy takes the T-bird away.
For the word origin mavens, the word trivia began differently than what we have in common usage. It meant the secret intersection of three roads where the witches and their power were buried. I'm not kidding. Look it up.
But we'll go with a more modern definition,... something not widely known, something esoteric, something known by a few.
The question? Name the author of the following quotation, and the person to whom he refers. See I even gave you a hint ... the author is a male type person.
Quote: "He was like many people: in intellectual matters he was skeptical, but in moral matters he believed implicitly in the maxims that he had imbibed at his mother's knee. That illustrates what the psychoanalysts so much emphasize--the immensely stronger hold upon us that our very early associations have than those of later times."
I'm betting Google won't know this one. ;-)
