Quote of the Day
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it.

The digital camera is a great invention because it allows us to reminisce. Instantly.
Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation.

The invention of the printing press was one of the most important events in human history.
