Richard P. Feynman
“What men are poets who can speak of Jupiter if he were like a man, but if he is an immense spinning sphere of methane and ammonia must be silent?”
Richard Feynmanman

Comte de Lautréamont
“When one wants to be famous, one has to dive gracefully into rivers of the blood of cannon-blasted bodies.”
Comte de Lautréamont, Maldoror and Poems

Shěn Fù
“In laying out gardens, pavilions, wandering paths, small mountains of stone, and flower paintings, try to give the feeling of the small in the large and the large in the small, of the real in the illusion, and of the illusion in reality. Some things should be hidden and some should be obvious, some prominent and some vague. Arranging a proper garden is not just a matter of setting out winding paths in a broad area with many rocks; thinking that it is will only waste time and energy.”
Shen Fu, Six Records of a Floating Life

“If you were to hide the world in the world, so that nothing could get away, this would be the final reality of the constancy of things.”

“Come back you silly woman I need your credit cards.”
Meredith Brosnan, Mr. Dynamite
