George R.R. Martin
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

Lawrence M. Krauss
“The purpose of education is not to validate ignorance but to overcome it”
Lawrence Krauss

Robert G. Ingersoll
“I will not attack your doctrines nor your creeds if they accord liberty to me. If they hold thought to be dangerous - if they aver that doubt is a crime, then I attack them one and all, because they enslave the minds of men.

Robert G. Ingersoll, The Ghosts and Other Lectures

Isaac Asimov

They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
Steve Jobs
