Quotes:

Croyez ceux qui cherchent la vérité, doutez de ceux qui la trouvent.
  - André Gide

It's not true unless it makes you laugh, but you don't understand until it makes
you weep.
  - Robert Anton Wilson

I really only love god as much as I love the person I love the least.
  - Dorothy Day

if you don't become the ocean
you'll be seasick
every day
  - Leonard Cohen

The ultimate weapon has always existed. Every man, every woman, and every child
owns it. It's the ability to say 'No' and take the consequences.
  - Robert Anton Wilson

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.
  - Kurt Vonnegut

The more constraints one imposes, the more one frees oneself of the chains that
shackle the spirit... the arbitrariness of the constraint only serves to obtain
precision of execution.
  - Igor Stravinsky

I would like to understand things better, but I don’t want to understand them
perfectly.
  - Douglas Hofstadter

If the world were perfect, it wouldn't be.
  - Yogi Berra
