Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt: Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time

Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein

Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett, Diggers

Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time

Keith Haring
“Good and Evil are very hard to explain or understand. I'm sure that evil exists, but it is hard to isolate. Good and evil are intertwined and impossible to separate. They are not completely opposites and in fact are often one and the same.”
Keith Haring, Keith Haring Journals
