A really nice approach to understanding and flirting with science, scientific knowledge, scientific thinking, and scientists themselves. Will have you laughing a lot, and will draw many interesting antidotes that are relevant to everyday life.

Hermann Hesse
“If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us.”
Hermann Hesse, Demian. Die Geschichte von Emil Sinclairs Jugend

Henry David Thoreau
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms...”
Henry David Thoreau

Thich Nhat Hanh
“If you suffer and make your loved ones suffer, there is nothing that can justify your desire.”
Thich Nhat Hanh, The Art of Power

Henry David Thoreau
“Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden

“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
