Neil Gaiman
“You've a good heart. Sometimes that's enough to see you safe wherever you go. But mostly, it's not.”
Neil Gaiman, Neverwhere

Albert Einstein
“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
Albert Einstein

“Any given man sees only a tiny portion of the total truth, and very often, in fact almost perpetually, he deliberately deceives himself about the little precious fragment as well. A portion of him turns against him and acts like another person, defeating him from inside.”
― From A Scanner Darkly
