The new frontiers to be conquered are mainly in the convolutions of the cortex. (Quote by - Arthur Koestler)

Physicists have determined that even the most solid and heavy mass of matter we see is mostly empty space. But at the submicroscopic level, specks of matter scattered through a vast emptiness have such incredible density and weight, and are linked to one another by such powerful forces, that together they produce all the properties of concrete, cast iron and solid rock. In much the same way, specks of knowledge are scattered through a vast emptiness of ignorance, and everything depends upon how solid the individual specks of knowledge are, and on how powerfully linked and coordinated they are with one another. (Quote by - Thomas Sowell)

The fanatic is incorruptible: if he kills for an idea, he can just as well get himself killed for one; in either case, tyrant or martyr, he is a monster. (Quote by - E. M. Cioran)

The ideas which now pass for brilliant innovations and advances are in fact mere revivals of ancient errors, and a further proof of the dictum that those who are ignorant of the past are condemned to repeat it. (Quote by - Henry Hazlitt)

A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity. (Quote by - Robert Heinlein)

It is part of the formidableness of a genuine mass movement that the self-sacrifice it promotes includes also a sacrifice of some of the moral sense which cramps and restrains our nature. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

The wise man doesn't give the right answers, he poses the right questions. (Quote by - Claude Levi-strauss)

Quite often in history action has been the echo of words. An era of talk was followed by an era of events. The new barbarism of the twentieth century is the echo of words bandied about by brilliant speakers and writers in the second half of the nineteenth. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

Language was invented to ask questions. Answers may be given by grunts and gestures, but questions must be spoken. Humanness came of age when man asked the first question. Social stagnation results not from a lack of answers but from the absence of the impulse to ask questions. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

Dreaming permits each and every one of us to be quietly and safely insane every night of our lives. (Quote by - Charles Fisher)

The more adaptability exists for a given kind of decision, the less risky it is to make plans for the future, and therefore the more likely it is that more people will make more plans in such areas. (Quote by - Thomas Sowell)

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time. (Quote by - Golda Meir)

We must respect the other fellow's religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart. (Quote by - H.l. Mencken)

Sin makes its own hell, and goodness its own heaven. (Quote by - Mary Baker Eddy)

The mind cannot foresee its own advance. (Quote by - F.a. Hayek)

The more original a discovery the more obvious it seems afterwards. (Quote by - Arthur Koestler)

It is generally recognized that creativity requires leisure, an absence of rush, time for the mind and imagination to float and wander and roam, time for the individual to descend into the depths of his or her psyche, to be available to barely audible signals rustling for attention. Long periods of time may pass in which nothing seems to be happening. But we know that kind of space must be created if the mind is to leap out of its accustomed ruts, to part from the mechanical, the known, the familiar, the standard, and generate a leap into the new. (Quote by - Nathaniel Branden)

Act that your principle of action might safely be made a law for the whole world. (Quote by - Immanuel Kant)

If you're naturally kind you attract a lot of people you don't like. (Quote by - William Feather)

I think it is all a matter of love: the more you love a memory, the stronger and stranger it is. (Quote by - Vladimir Nabokov)

Avoid having your ego so close to your position that when your position falls, your ego goes with it. (Quote by - John Renmerde)

The ruthlessness born of self-seeking is ineffectual compared with the ruthlessness sustained by dedication to a holy cause. God wishes, said Calvin, that one should put aside all humanity when it is a question of striving for His glory.. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

When you learn not to want things so badly, life comes to you. (Quote by - Jessica Lange)

Unity and self-sacrifice, of themselves, even when fostered by the most noble means, produce a facility for hating. Even when men league themselves mightily together to promote tolerance and peace on earth, they are likely to be violently intolerant toward those not of a like mind. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

When people are bored, it is primarily with their own selves that they are bored. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)
