Today’s STATUS QUOtes
“The truth doesn’t hurt unless it ought to.” — Bertie Charles Forbes
“Because behind this expansion [of knowledge ] there is a great asymmetry: what is knowable but still unknown will always be larger than what we already know, meaning there are more possibilities waiting to be discovered than have already been discovered. This asymmetry in knowledge is reason to be optimistic, because it means there are no limits to our improvement.” — Kevin Kelly
“In my heart I had the thorn of a passion. I managed to take it off one day. I no longer feel my heart.” — Antonio Machado
“The concept of best-friendship is responsible for the worst birthday party of my life. I was 11 and hosting a sleepover. We were all having fun, eating pizza and comparing our Beanie Babies—until someone referred to someone else as her best friend. Suddenly, we were at war.” — Jaya Saxena
“I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself.”
— Marlene Dietrich —
