Mee gud spelr, know?
My blog would probably get a lot more hits if I wrote it entirely in misspell.
First things first, but not necessarily in that order. -- The Doctor, in John Flanagan and Andrew McCulloch's 'Meglos'
The story so far: In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made alot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move. -- Douglas Adams
Try to learn something about everything and everything about something. -- T.H. Huxley
Nobody can be exactly like me. Sometimes even I have trouble doing it. -- Tallulah Bankhead
Two paradoxes are better than one; they may even suggest a solution. -- Edward Teller
The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of aprofound truth may well be another profound truth. -- Niels Bohr
We all live to a formula. Maybe the secret lies in keeping that formula secret. -- Peter Greenaway
It may be that our role on this planet is not to worship God -- but to create him. -- Arthur C. Clarke
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies inthe final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who arecold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It isspending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes ofits children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under theclouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron. -- Dwight D. Eisenhower
The more I have studied him, the more Newton has receded from me. It has beenmy privilege at various times to know a number of brilliant men, men whom Iacknowledge without hesitation to be my intellectual superiors. I have never,however, met one against whom I was unwilling to measure myself, so that itseemed reasonable to say that I was half as able as the person in question, ora third or a fourth, but in every case a finite fraction. The end result of mystudy of Newton has served to convince me that with him there is no measure. Hehas become for me wholly other, one of the tiny handful of supreme geniuses whohave shaped the categories of the human intellect, a man not finally reducibleto the criteria by which we comprehend our fellow beings. -- Richard Westfall, 'Never at Rest. A Biography of Isaac Newton'
(God doesn't have to be a complex idea. It could be a simple concept for simple people about a simple reality, and have nothing to do with genius)
Everything of importance has been said before by somebody who did not discover it. -- Alfred North Whitehead
The idea of an incarnation of God is absurd: why should the human race thinkitself so superior to bees, ants, and elephants as to be put in this unique relation to its maker?... Christians are like a council of frogs in a marsh ora synod of worms on a dung-hill croaking and squeaking "for our sakes was the world created." -- Julian the Apostate
(maybe the snurflettes of galacticon x or whatever think we humans are as puny and squeaky and inferior as worms (fish food!), if they exist at all. Maybe Douglas Adams didn't write fiction...)
