Quote of the Day
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Arthur C. Clarke
We too, through lack of knowledge and of sufficiently mature reflection, mistook the visible outward appearance of the phenomenon for the phenomenon itself.
By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.
The wise man does not expose himself needlessly to danger, since there are few things for which he cares sufficiently; but he is willing, in great crises, to give even his life - knowing that under certain conditions it is not worthwhile to live.
