Suffering is transient, knowledge is foreverTobias Moon (From Simon R. Green’s Deathstalker series)
Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.Albert Einstein
Create more value than you capture.Tim O’Reilly
You cannot see what I see because you see what you see. You cannot know what I know because you know what you know. What I see and what I know cannot be added to what you see and what you know because they are not of the same kind. Neither can it replace what you see and what you know because that would be to replace you yourself.Oromis (From Christopher Paolini’s Eragon series)
What I cannot create, I do not understand.Richard Feynman
Son… this is the honest truth about the universe:
The universe was created by an all-powerful all-knowing being who came down to us in the form of a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father who can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.
Your little friends might laugh at you when you tell them, but trust me… pretty much all us grown-ups actually believe this is true.Unknown
Guard: Where’d you get the coconuts?Monty Python and The Holy Grail
Arthur: We found them.
Guard: Found them? In Mercia?! The coconut’s tropical!
Arthur: What do you mean?
Guard: Well, Mercia’s a temperate zone!
Arthur: The swallow may fly south with the sun, and the house martin or the plover may seek warmer climes in winter, yet these are not strangers to our land.
Guard: … Are you suggesting that coconuts migrate?
