What I like in a good author is not what he says but what he whispers.
One can acquire everything in solitude except character.
One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
Joy is but the sign that creative emotion is fulfilling its purpose.

For a smart material to be able to send out a more complex signal it needs to be nonlinear. If you hit a tuning fork twice as hard it will ring twice as loud but still at the same frequency. That’s a linear response. If you hit a person twice as hard they’re unlikely just to shout twice as loud. That property lets you learn more about the person than the tuning fork.
Middle age is when a guy keeps turning off lights for economical rather than romantic reasons.

Nothing but blackness aboveAnd nothing that moves but the cars…God, if you wish for our love,Fling us a handful of stars
