George Bernard Shaw

Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.
Margaret J. Wheatley
Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.
C. S. Lewis

P. T. Barnum

William T. Vollmann
