Ronald Knox
“There was a young man who said "God
Must find it exceedingly odd
To think that the tree
Should continue to be
When there's no one about in the quad."

"Dear Sir: Your astonishment's odd;
I am always about in the quad.
And that's why the tree
Will continue to be
Since observed by, Yours faithfully, God.”
Ronald Knox

Ludwig Wittgenstein
“We cannot therefore say in logic: This and this there is in the world, that there is not.

For that would apparently presuppose that we exclude certain possibilities, and this cannot be the case since otherwise logic must get outside the limits of the world: that is, if it could consider these limits from the other side also.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus

Leo Tolstoy
“The further one goes, the better the land seems. ”
Leo Tolstoy, How Much Land Does a Man Need? and Other Stories

Leo Tolstoy
“One might murder and steal and yet be happy”
Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace

Kurt Vonnegut
“I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Player Piano
