" Cool read. 2 hours of reading / first 100 pages were just enough to make my everyday life with git an exciting experience. Some do uncover lots of internals - feel free to skim.

Douglas Adams
“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Ernest Hemingway
“Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.”
Ernest Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway
“If people bring so much courage to this world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

Anthony Burgess
“Is it better for a man to have chosen evil than to have good imposed upon him?”
Anthony Burgess, A Clockwork Orange

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“Goodbye," said the fox. "And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
