If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?
'Tis better to be silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.
Anais Nin
We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.
Arthur C. Clarke
When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
B. F. Skinner
The real problem is not whether machines think but whether men do.
Bob Andrews
Working on something, that you do not believe you can accomplish, is insanity.
It's a sign of insanity if you do the same, and expect different results.
Carl Sagan
We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.
Dan Quisenberry
The future is much like the present, only longer.
Dorothy Parker
I don’t care what is written about me so long as it isn’t true.
Doug Larson
The surprising thing about young fools is how many survive to become old fools.
Douglas Adams
Nothing travels faster than the speed of light with the possible exception of bad news, which obeys its own special laws.
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
Dr. Samuel Johnson
He that can swim needs not despair to fly; to swim is to fly in a grosser fluid, and to fly is to swim in a subtler. We are only to proportion our power of resistance to the different density of matter through which we are to pass. You will be necessarily upborne by the air if you can renew any impulse upon it faster than the air can recede from the pressure... The labor of rising from the ground will be great, ... but as we mount higher, the earth's attraction, and the body's gravity, will be gradually diminished till we arrive at a region where the man will float in the air without any tendency to fall.
Elbert Hubbard
No man needs a vacation so much as the man who has just had one.
Ellen Goodman
Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.
Eva Nusshold
Build it, before you need it!
Father Larry Lorenzoni
The average person thinks he isn’t.
Galileo Galilei
All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.
George Wallace
Why does the Air Force need expensive new bombers? Have the people we’ve been bombing over the years been complaining?
H. L. Mencken
An idealist is one who, on noticing that a rose smells better than a cabbage, concludes that it will also make better soup.
Honore de Balzac
It is easy to sit up and take notice, What is difficult is getting up and taking action.
Isaac Asimov
If knowledge can create problems, it is not through ignorance that we can solve them.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau
At first we will only skim the surface of the earth like young starlings, but soon, emboldened by practice and experience, we will spring into the air with the impetuousness of the eagle, diverting ourselves by watching the childish behavior of the little men or awling miserably around on the earth below us.
John Andrew Holmes
It is well to remember that the entire universe, with one trifling exception, is composed of others.
John F. Kennedy
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.
John Ruskin
When a man is wrapped up in himself, he makes a pretty small package.
Joseph de Lalande
It is entirely impossible for man to rise into the air and float there. For this you would need wings of tremendous dimensions and they would have to be moved at three feet per second. Only a fool would expect such a thing to be realized.
Karl-Heinz Sunitsch
The shame is not when you don't achieve your goal, the shame is when you don't have a goal.
Katharine Whitehorn
The easiest way for your children to learn about money is for you not to have any.
Leonardo da Vinci
A bird is an instrument working according to mathematical law, which instrument it is within the capacity of man to reproduce with all its movements.
Lyndon B. Johnson
If one morning I walked on top of the water across the Potomac River, the headline that afternoon would read President Can?t Swim
Mario Andretti
If everything seems under control, you’re not going fast enough
Metrodorus of Chios
To consider the Earth as the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet, only one grain will grow.
Miles Kington
Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit, wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
You would make a ship sail against the winds and currents by lighting a bonfire under her deck...I have no time for such nonsense.
Neil Armstrong
Science has not yet mastered prophecy. We predict too much for the next year and yet far too little for the next ten.
Paul Valery
Love is being stupid together.
President Martin Van Buren
Railroad carriages are pulled at the enormous speed of fifteen miles per hour by engines which, in addition to endangering life and limb of passengers, roar and snort their way through the countryside, setting fire to the crops, scaring the livestock, and frightening women and children. The Almighty certainly never intended that people should travel at such break-neck speed.
R. Buckminster Fuller
When I’m working on a problem, I never think about beauty. I think only how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is braver five minutes longer.
Ronald L. Harold
Having traveled, I will tell you that seeing friends is always better than the scenery.
Sir Winston Churchil
Personally I’m always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.
