Arthur C. Clarke
“I'm sure the universe is full of intelligent life. It's just been too intelligent to come here.”
Arthur C. Clarke

Friedrich Nietzsche
“It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

Honoré de Balzac
“Reading brings us unknown friends”
Honore de Balzac

Theodore Roosevelt
“Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth, whether about the president or anyone else.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Stephen Fry
“Books are no more threatened by Kindle than stairs by elevators.”
Stephen Fry
