Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“If I forgive my enemy, I no longer have an enemy. On the other hand suspicion immediately gives birth to fraud. Love always finds its proof, so does hatred. Zealousness seeks peace and makes war, and justice by force of arms is equal to the worst injustice.”

–From Alain’s “Propos.” (1921)

    In Memoriam

    Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.

    The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.

    I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.

    We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.

    My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.

    Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny.

    I have no idea. People who boast about their IQ are losers.

    People won’t have time for you if you are always angry or complaining.

    We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet,

    Not only does God play dice, but… he sometimes throws them where they cannot be seen.

    – Stephen Hawking, British theoretical physicist

    Born: January 8, 1942, Oxford, United Kingdom
    Died: March 14, 2018, Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Rest In Peace
