I'm not interested in age. People who tell me their age are silly. You're as old as you feel.

Henri Frederic Amiel

Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding.

Mohandas Gandhi

Every great architect is - necessarily - a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age.

A man paints with his brains and not with his hands.


Beauty in things exists in the mind which contemplates them.

David Hume

God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.


It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.

Change before you have to.

Jack Welch

The real danger is not that computers will begin to think like men, but that men will begin to think like computers.

Sydney J. Harris

Do not fear death so much but rather the inadequate life.

Bertolt Brecht

You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.

Walt Disney

Ideologies separate us. Dreams and anguish bring us together.

Eugene Ionesco

Education is a better safeguard of liberty than a standing army.

Edward Everett

We won't have a society if we destroy the environment.

Margaret Mead

Equality is the soul of liberty; there is, in fact, no liberty without it.

Frances Wright

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave.

Indira Gandhi

Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.

Carl Sagan

Forgiveness is the giving, and so the receiving, of life.

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.

You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.

Mohandas Gandhi

A woman has to be intelligent, have charm, a sense of humor, and be kind. It's the same qualities I require from a man.

Catherine Deneuve

Be as smart as you can, but remember that it is always better to be wise than to be smart.

Alan Alda

If an elderly but distinguished scientist says that something is possible, he is almost certainly right; but if he says that it is impossible, he is very probably wrong.

Arthur C. Clarke

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.

Henry Ford

Technology is a gift of God. After the gift of life it is perhaps the greatest of God's gifts. It is the mother of civilizations, of arts and of sciences.

Freeman Dyson

Leaders have to act more quickly today. The pressure comes much faster.

Andy Grove

Touch a scientist and you touch a child.

It isn't enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it. One must work at it.

There is no way to peace, peace is the way

Mohandas Gandhi

If technology does not liberate all people for the pursuit of higher aspirations in human achievement, then all its technical potential will be meaningless.

Jeach Fresco

We are the way for the Cosmos to know itself

Carl Sagan


We, the SimMartian colonists of Hope-1, wish you not for more, but for less. Less hate, less ignorance, less wars, less lack of respect, less environmental disasters, less pain, less poverty, less sadness. No matter if you are American, Russian, Greek, German, Italian, Japanese, Australian. No matter if you believe in Christ, Islam, Flying Spaghetti Monster. No matter if you are Caucasian, Negro or anything else, child, woman, rich or poor, Socialist or Patriot. All humans on Earth are brothers and sisters. All life forms on Earth, from dolphins to roses, are brothers and sisters. We are all members of the same family, both planetary and cosmic. Let's work for a cleaner, peaceful planet. Let's use the scientific knowledges to fight ignorance, to gain wisdom, to evolve both technological and spiritual. Let's spread the beauty of life and intelligence in the vastness of the Universe.

From Terring and the SimMars colonists, Happy New Year!! 4.gif4.gif

Not quite sure about the political/philosophical bit there (negro isn't acceptable anymore and socialists can be patriots).
