“It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.” Carl Sagan
“He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would suffice.” Albert Einstein

„Die Wahrheit muss längst tot sein, damit es zum Krieg kommt.
English: “Truth must long be dead, before a war may begin.” Hagen Rether, thus correcting a much older statement.

Bicycling, Motorcycle riding, or just walking.

Oliver Welke, European financial Minister. He does not have any authority whatsoever, but he is very good.

No quotes since 04-03-18 eh? I'm going to have to change that...

Quote:
It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.
-- Andre Gide

And for a double-helping...

Quote:
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
-- Oscar Wilde

Ain't that one the truth!

Enjoy you're quotes...

Man has—next to the drives of reproduction and dining—two passions: making noise and not listening.” (Kurt Tucholsky)

Too much to say about this man. Mensch Kurti !

"Well, Curley's pretty handy," the swamper said skeptically. "Never did seem right to me. S'pose Curley jumps a big guy an' licks him. Ever'body says what a game guy Curley is. And s'pose he does the same thing and gets licked. Then ever'body says the big guy oughtta pick on somebody his own size, and maybe they gang up on the big guy. Never did seem right to me. Seem like Curley ain't givin' nobody a chance."
