"Just as compulsory primary education created a market catered for by cheap dailies and weeklies, so the spread of secondary and latterly tertiary education has created a large population of people, often with well-developed literary and scholarly tastes, who have been educated far beyond their capacity to undertake analytical thought."
Peter Medawar (http://www.santafe.edu/~shalizi/Medawar/phenomenon-of-man.html)
"God protect me from my friends, i can take care of my enemies by myself."
Voltaire (thanks Bonnie)
"Waiting for joyous tomorrows is what kills our joys today. The future is worse than the ocean itself, for it contains _nothing_. Blueprints, plans, the long-term view: castles in the air. A solidly constructed present is the only necessity - the rest will take care of itself."
"The enemy is in front of us. They are behind us. They are to our left. They are to our right. This time they will not get away."
