Richard Feynman quotations

Reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled.

The easiest person to fool is yourself.

It does no harm to the mystery to know a little about it.

Nelson Mandela quotations

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other peoplepermission to do the same.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

Carl Sagan Quotations

We make our world significant by the courage of our questions and by the depth of our answers.

Stephen Hawking quotations
For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination. We learned to talk and we learned to listen. Speech has allowed the communication of ideas, enabling human beings to work together to build the impossible. Mankind's greatest achievements have come about by talking, and its greatest failures by not talking. It doesn't have to be like this. Our greatest hopes could become reality in the future. With the technology at our disposal, the possibilities are unbounded. All we need to do is make sure we keep talking.
