René Descartes
“It is not enough to have a good mind; the main thing is to use it well.”

Arthur Conan Doyle
“I am a brain, Watson. The rest of me is a mere appendix.”
Arthur Conan Doyle, The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone

Arthur Conan Doyle
“I consider that a man's brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose. A fool takes in all the lumber of every sort that he comes across, so that the knowledge which might be useful to him gets crowded out, or at best is jumbled up with a lot of other things, so that he has a difficulty in laying his hands upon it. Now the skillful workman is very careful indeed as to what he takes into his brain-attic. He will have nothing but the tools which may help him in doing his work, but of these he has a large assortment, and all in the most perfect order. It is a mistake to think that that little room has elastic walls and can distend to any extent. Depend upon it there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones.”
Arthur Conan Doyle, A Study in Scarlet

René Descartes
“Except our own thoughts, there is nothing absolutely in our power.”
René Descartes
