  • Those that cast evolution aside because it is only a theory of how man evolved from a monkey have understood evolution about as much as those that proclaim to understand computers as being only machines that handle one and zeros.


  • We can learn something about how wisdom is perceived; we tend to impart wisdom to the owl and the cat because they tend to remain silent and move little; so probably it is also how others might perceive us if we abide likewise.


  • All those that claim that something is impossible are correct, but only if they explain by what means.


  • Our greatest threat lies not in new ideas; rather it is in our tendency to cling to ideas of the past that are inadequate to the problems of the present and the future.


  • Just because one has found something worth dying for doesnít equal the necessity of dying; it only means that something is worth devoting ones life to that also might incur dying.

  • Education to many amounts to acquiring as much knowledge as possible to reinforce oneís preconceptions.


  • There are many that would be closer to the truth if they disbelieved all that they believe.


  • Those that have strong beliefs are generally looked up to while the doubters are scorned; however, it is the doubters that account for the progress.


  • A confession that resulted from duress is considered as inadmissible as an acceptable confession; however, a belief, that is the result of long social duress, is considered acceptable as a belief to be respected.


  • Pity those that look longingly back on their childhood as their happiest days.
