Elius shared a quote
Only the Paranoid Survive by Andrew S. Grove
“I can’t help but wonder why leaders are so often hesitant to lead. I guess it takes a lot of conviction and trusting your gut to get ahead of your peers, your staff and your employees while they are still squabbling about which path to take, and set an unhesitating, unequivocal course whose rightness or wrongness will not be known for years. Such a decision really tests the mettle of the leader. By contrast, it doesn’t take much self-confidence to downsize a company—after all, how can you go wrong by shuttering factories and laying people off if the benefits of such actions are going to show up in tomorrow’s bottom line and will be applauded by the financial community?”

Glen Duncan
“I know what the majority of you think about all this. All this sex and money and drugs. You think: people who live like that never end up happy. You need to think that in just the way men with small penises need to think size doesn't matter. It's understandable. The rich, the famous, the big-dicked, the slim-and-gorgeous - they can incite an envy so urgent that you can escape it only by translating it into pity. People who live like that never end up happy. Yes, you're right. But neither do you. And in the meantime, they've had all the sex and drugs and money.”
Glen Duncan, I, Lucifer

Neal Stephenson
“This Snow Crash thing--is it a virus, a drug, or a religion?”

Juanita shrugs. “What's the difference?”
Neal Stephenson, Snow Crash

A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
“Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep.”
A P J Abdul Kalam, Wings of Fire: An Autobiography

Eliezer Yudkowsky
“What people really believe doesn't feel like a BELIEF, it feels like the way the world IS.”
Eliezer Yudkowsky, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality
