Richard Dawkins

It's no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense.
Mark Twain

I just think people have a lot of fiction. But, you know, I mean, the real story of Facebook is just that we've worked so hard for all this time. I mean, the real story is actually probably pretty boring, right? I mean, we just sat at our computers for six years and coded.

Muhammad Yunus
