Daniel Defoe
“I smil'd to my self at the sight of this money, O drug! said I aloud, what art thou good for? Thou art not worth to me, no not the taking off of the ground, one of those knives is worth all this heap, I have no manner of use for thee, e'en remain where thou art, and go to the bottom as a creature whose life is not worth saving. However, upon second thoughts, I took it away...”
Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe

“[Economics] is all about observing the world with genuine curiosity and admitting that it is full of mysteries”
Steven E. Landsburg, Armchair Economist: Economics & Everyday Life

“If you are ever so unlucky as to get close to a real knife fight, it would be useful to keep one fact in mind above all others: the real knife fighter does not wish to engage in a fight.

He doesn’t care who is best with a knife. He only wants to cut you. He will then do anything he can to take you by surprise, attack, and finish you off before you can fight back.”
Hank Reinhardt, Hank Reinhardt's Book of Knives: A Practical and Illustrated Guide to Knife Fighting

“Any serious social encounter with knives has one main goal: to stop the action. Beyond that, you have a little flexibility: to kill, or merely get away, or what have you. But first comes the cessation of hostilities.
There are many ways to handle this. You can run, shoot, call the cops, or even try to organize a discussion group to talk the problem out. But I’m talking knives, so I’ll limit myself to that.

All wounds are painful and pain is a great tool for stopping fights. So is the loss of use of various parts of the body. Therefore, it follows that although we wish to inflict any wound we can, the more painful it is, the better.”
Hank Reinhardt, Hank Reinhardt's Book of Knives: A Practical and Illustrated Guide to Knife Fighting

“It’s important to hold the knife with the edge down. How important? Well, it depends. How important is your life?”
Hank Reinhardt, Hank Reinhardt's Book of Knives: A Practical and Illustrated Guide to Knife Fighting
