A truly great book should be read in youth, again in maturity and once more in old age, as a fine building should be seen by morning light, at noon and by moonlight.

A couple from Stephen Hawking:

- We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.

- The whole history of science has been the gradual realization that events do not happen in an arbitrary manner, but that they reflect a certain underlying order, which may or may not be divinely inspired.

- I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.

- Even if there is only one possible unified theory, it is just a set of rules and equations. What is it that breathes fire into the equations and makes a universe for them to describe?

- God not only plays dice, He also sometimes throws the dice where they cannot be seen

A few of my favorites from Science:

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' (I found it!) but 'That's funny ...'
- Isaac Asimov (1920 - 1992)

- We used to think that if we knew one, we knew two, because one and one are two. We are finding that we must learn a great deal more about 'and'.
Sir Arthur Eddington (1882 - 1944), The Harvest of a Quiet Eye (A. L. Mackay), 1977

If quantum mechanics hasn't profoundly shocked you, you haven't understood it yet.
- Niels Bohr

In mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
- Johann von Neumann (1903 - 1957)

Not only is the universe stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine.
- Sir Arthur Eddington (1882 - 1944)

Cochise, that's a great quote. I share similar aspirations. 8-)

"What does it matter, a dream of love or a dream of lies
We're all gonna be in the same place when we die
Your spirit don't leave knowing
Your face or your name
And the wind through your bones
Is all that remains
And we're all gonna be
Just dirt in the ground

The quill from a buzzard
The blood writes the word
I want to know am I the sky or a bird
Hell's boiling over
Heaven is full
We're chained to the world
And we all gotta pull
And we're all gonna be
Just dirt in the ground

Now the killer was smiling
With nerves made of stone
He climbed the stairs and the gallows groaned
And the people's hearts were pounding
They were throbbing, they were red
As he swung out over the crowd
I heard the hangman said
We're all gonna be
Just dirt in the ground

Now Cain slew Abel
He killed him with a stone
The sky cracked open
And the thunder groaned
Along a river of flesh
Can these dry bones live
Take a king or a beggar
And the answer they'll give
Is we're all gonna be
We're all gonna be
Just dirt in the ground"

Tom Waits - Dirt in the Ground
Thrummular, thrummular thrilp,
Hum lipsible, lipsible lilp;
Dim thricken mithrummy,

“If a man passed through heaven in a dream and received a flower as proof of his passage, and if, on awaking, he found that flower in his hands—what to say then? I was that man.”
