"Peace is holding on to another.
Peace is the words you say to a brother.
'Will you stay with me?
Will you be my friend?
Will you listen to my story
till the very end?'

Peace is a joining, not a pulling apart.
It's the courage to bear a wounded heart.

“Swords, Lances, arrows, machine guns, and even high explosives have had far less power over the fates of nations than the typhus louse, the plague flea, and the yellow-fever mosquito. Civilizations have retreated from the plasmodium of malaria, and armies have crumbled into rabbles under the onslaught of cholera spirilla, or of dysentery and typhoid bacilli. Huge areas have bee devastated by the trypanosome that travels on the wings of the tsetse fly, and generations have been harassed by the syphilis of a courtier. War and conquest and that herd existence which is an accompaniment of what we call civilization have merely set the stage for these more powerful agents of human tragedy.”
Hans Zinsser, Rats, Lice and History

Edward R. Tufte
“PowerPoint is like being trapped in the style of early Egyptian flatland cartoons rather than using the more effective tools of Renaissance visual representation.”
Edward R. Tufte, Beautiful Evidence

Terry Pratchett
“Five exclamation marks, the sure sign of an insane mind.”
Terry Pratchett, Reaper Man

William Gibson
“The future is already here – it's just not evenly distributed.

The Economist, December 4, 2003
William Gibson

Stephen Fry
“If I had a large amount of money I should certainly found a hospital for those whose grip upon the world is so tenuous that they can be severely offended by words and phrases and yet remain all unoffended by the injustice, violence and oppression that howls daily about our ears.”
Stephen Fry, Paperweight
