A Few Quotes

I don't really have much else to say right now, so a few curious quotes will have to suffice for now:

"Your work is both true and original. Unfortunately, the parts that are true are not original, and the parts that are original are not true" - Edgar Allan Poe

"I think the universe is a pretty hefty inspiration for anyone who aspires to be a creator." - Larry Wall

"It is a mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." - Aristotle

"There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale return of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact" - Mark Twain

"The internet is like the gold rush, the only people making money are the ones selling pans." - Will Hobbs

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

I like the Aristotle quote. I recently had a discussion with someone about the benefits of being able to think about & maybe even learn a bit about things that you don't believe in.
