“Nothing of real worth can ever be bought. Love, friendship, honour, valour, respect. All these things have to be earned.”
David Gemmell, Shield of Thunder

Patrick Rothfuss
“A lot of people feel that way. That if you didn’t pay your dues by being ostracized then you’re not *really* a geek.

I don’t think that though. It’s not an exclusive club that you need to pay some social price to get in. Being a geek is about loving something passionately beyond all reason or sense. And it need not necessarily be related to science fiction, fantas, superheroes, etcetera. You can be a gardening geek, a model train geek, stamp collecting geek, a baby geek…

It’s about enthusiasm, in my opinion.

From his blog RE: Thirty years of D&D

“If you're too open-minded; your brains will fall out.”

Lao Tzu
“If you understand others you are smart.
If you understand yourself you are illuminated.
If you overcome others you are powerful.
If you overcome yourself you have strength.
If you know how to be satisfied you are rich.
If you can act with vigor, you have a will.
If you don't lose your objectives you can be long-lasting.
If you die without loss, you are eternal.”
Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

Chris Rock
“You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn't want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named "Bush", "Dick", and "Colin." Need I say more?”
Chris Rock
