Not much to do with Information Security (which is what we blog about mostly) but we thought in this post we would share our favorite quotes. Enjoy! If you can think of any others – please chime in with a comment below. Thanks!
A tiger doesn’t lose sleep over the opinion of sheep
Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.
In the age of information, igorance is a choice.
School failed me, and I failed the school. It bored me. The teachers behaved like Feldwebel (sergeants). I wanted to learn what I wanted to know, but they wanted me to learn for the exam. What I hated most was the competitive system there, and especially sports. Because of this, I wasn’t worth anything, and several times they suggested I leave. This was a Catholic School in Munich. I felt my thirst for knowledge was being strangled by my teachers; grades were their only measurement. How can a teacher understand youth with such a system? From the age of twelve I begun to suspect authority and distrust teachers.
Curious that we spend more time congratulating people who have succeeded than encouraging people who have not.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
If you’re going through hell, keep going.
An investment in knolwedge pays the best interest.
Everybody is ignorant only on different subjects.
Why is there no minimum wage?
Nothing is permanent in this wicked world, not even our troubles.
I hate that word ‘lucky.’ It cheapens a lot of the hard work. Living in an apartment without any heat and paying for dinner with dimes – I don’t think I felt myself lucky back then. Doing plays for 50 bucks and trying to be true to myself as an artist and turning down commercials where they wanted a leprechaun. Saying that I was lucky negates the hard work I put in and spits on that guy who’s freezing his ass off back in Brooklyn. So I won’t say I’m lucky. I’m fortunate enough to find or attract very talented people. For some reason I found them and they found me.
Socialism never took root in America because the poor there see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.
