"Fear not the long sentence."
-Roy Peter Clark, 2006

"They don't give medals on this planet
for courage in urban combat
But there are silver stars shining in the sky
that the astronomers can't explain."

"And yet even today people ask in surprise:
What is the use of these voyages of [musical]
exploration? What good do they do us?
Little brains, I always answer to myself,
have only room for thoughts of bread and butter."
-Roald Amundsen (bracket content mine) (RIP)

"The World is a magical place filled with people
who are waiting to be offended by something."
-Anonymous (& "Sardonic"!)

"If you run with wolves, you'll learn to howl."

-Italian pro-verb

"A man with a scant vocabulary will almost certainly be a weak thinker. The richer and more copious one's vocabulary and the greater one's awareness of fine distinctions and subtle nuances of meaning, the more fertile and precise is likely to be one's thinking. Knowledge of things and knowledge of the words for them grow together. If you do not know the words, you can hardly know the thing."
-Henry Hazlitt (RIP), Thinking as a Science

"Having an identity - one that isn't easily subsumed and weaponized - is the single greatest sin one may commit in our time."

“When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.”
-Abraham Lincoln (RIP)
