    "I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time -- when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness..."

    Carl Sagan, 1995

    "America is a country where you have the inalienable right to express your own opinion - no matter how much of an idiot you might be"

    "You come home, make some tea, sit down in your armchair and all around there’s silence. Everyone decides for themselves whether that’s loneliness or freedom."

    "You will never speak to anyone more than you speak to yourself in your head, be kind to yourself."

    Albert Einstein:

    A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.


    The important thing is to not stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.

    Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

    The most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible.

    We see that the theory of probability is, at bottom, only common sense reduced to calculation;
    it makes us appreciate with exactitude what reasonable minds feel by a sort of instinct,
    often without being able to account for it.

    Pierre Simon LaPlace as quoted in The theory of blackjack by Peter Griffin

    Karl Marx on capitalism - he wrote that it is:

    and no, I'm not a commie - and I don't agree with his ideology in any way

    but wow - the man could write
