In science, all facts, no matter how trivial or banal, enjoy democratic equality.

Few bands in hard rock history have been so adept at balancing the awesome and trivial as Van Halen in their prime.
Until I read Anne Frank's diary, I had found books a literal escape from what could be the harsh reality around me. After I read the diary, I had a fresh way of viewing the both literature and the world. From then on, I found I was impatient with books that were not honest or that were trivial and frivolous.
Theft annoys me more than anything else. The purloining of effects from another magician. Some people think it's massive to steal the secrets of nuclear reactors, but to steal a card move is trivial. They're wrong.
The stunning thing about the world as it is, is that we have a tremendously large problem in it: namely, one-third of all human deaths, 80-million every year from poverty-related causes, trivial diseases and so on, and stunningly, nobody is really paying attention to it.

Paul Di Filippo

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
