  1. If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.

  2. The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.

      Absolutely true. In my lifetime I have seen this thousands of times. All it takes is for each person to do a little. For example, not walking past people in trouble but to try to help them out. Even a kind comment suffices...

  3. Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.

  4. The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of beauty is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, but indifference between life and death. ---Elie Wiesel---

      So that's where The Lumineers got their inspiration from in "Stubborn Love"

      The opposite of love isn't hate?

      Love and hate are both strong feelings. The opposite of a strong feeling is the absence of a feeling, indifference.

  5. Don't kid yourself that you're going to live again after you're dead; you're not. Make the most of the one life you've got. Live it to the full.

      Dogma is a double edged sword, as is belief; I agree with function, why is your dogmatic belief, without evidence, better than an others?

      It was actually a quote of Richard Dawkins.

      There is no reason to belief in afterlife...just like invisible flying donkeys. There is of course no evidence for what happens with your consciousness when you die but your neurons stop working when you die so you can be pretty sure it's over and out when you die.

  6. “I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”

      It follows that putting imagination before knowledge is putting the cart before the horse.

      That's very true.

      It's something that Einstein said. I think he meant that if you have sufficient knowledge concerning a subject, your imagination decides how far the knowledge brings you. Einstein's imagination brought him pretty far:)

      Yes, he's right. He did have formidable intelligence to make use of his formidable imagination.

  7. We are all agreed that your theory is crazy. The question which divides us is whether it is crazy enough to have a chance of being correct. My own feeling is that it is not crazy enough.
