  • It is often said that if we could see ourselves as others see us, that we’d be surprised; but if others could only see us the way we really are, then they’d be surprised.


  • Wherever there is a giant, a thousand dwarfs with knives will be found.


  • A computer is one thing that clearly shows that when something goes down, it doesn’t necessarily come up.

  • Chaos is the rule in the Universe. It is our very narrow focus that makes order ever seem the rule.


  • Individuals in a courtroom aren’t held in contempt of court because of their contempt of that court, but rather in the display of that contempt. Display gets the fine, not the contempt.
