We are all blind. The miser is blind he sees gold, but does not see true riches. The prodigal is blind he sees the beginning, but not the end. The coquette is blind she does not see her own wrinkles. The learned is blind he does not see his own ignorance. The honest man is blind he does not see the thief. The thief is blind he does not see God. God is blind the day he created the world, he did not see the devil manage to creep into it. I myself am blind I speak and do not see that you are blind. - Victor Hugo, 'The Man Who Laughed'
We die containing a richness of lovers and tribes, tastes we have swallowed, bodies we have plunged into and swum up as if rivers of knowledge... characters we have climbed into as if trees, fears we have hidden in as if caves. (...) We are communal histories, communal books. We are not owned or monogamous in our taste or experience. --Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient
Where a calculator on the ENIAC is equipped with 18,000 vacuum tubes and weighs 30 tons, computers in the future may have only 1,000 vacuum tubes and weigh only 1.5 tons. - Popular Mechanics, 1949
While I'm still confused and uncertain, it's on a much higher plane, d'you see, and at least I know I'm bewildered about the really fundamental and important facts of the universe. - Discworld scientists at work, Terry Pratchett, Equal Rites
You don't understand! screamed the tourist, above the terrible noise of the wingbeats. All my life I've wanted to see dragons! From the inside? shouted Rincewind. - Rincewind suggesting caution to Twoflower, Terry Pratchett, The Color Of Magic
