Authority without wisdom is like a heavy ax without an edge, fitter to bruise than polish.

I think the rock'n'roll myth of living on the edge is a pile of crap.
I did not like 'The Hurt Locker.' It's a lazy way to make a movie, frankly. I could put you on the edge of your seat quite easily, and have you feel the tension for 2 hours, if every other scene practically is, 'Should we cut the red wire or the green wire?'
I feel more and more at ease, because I think the older I get, the less pressure there is. People say, 'Well, he's not cutting edge because he's not in his twenties, so he's not expected to be.'
The hand is the cutting edge of the mind.
From a good book, I want to be taken to the very edge. I want a glimpse into that outer darkness.

After you work out, you have your dog with you. There's no better companion. You've got to have a friend. I didn't like opponents who had dogs with them. Because you know they had a little edge. They have a friend.
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
