"Whoever is not a partial lunatic is a total scoundrel."
Amos Oz (in A Perfect Peace)

"So we have come to cash this check -- a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice."
ML King
"The problem with quotations on the Internet is that you cannot confirm their validity"
Abraham Lincoln

"Big Brother wants only to improve your user experiences"
the ghost of George Orwell
"The wealth of your practical experience with sane and interesting problems will give to mathematics a new direction and a new impetus"
Kronecker, to Helmholtz

Kurt Westgaard, Danish Cartoonist, 2009
.. you can speak freely, you can vote, you can speak out any time, there's only one thing you can't do -- you can't be free of being mocked or being offended. that's the condition in Denmark"

In the age of the Internet, anyone can spread a lie around the world, a privilege which, in earlier times, was reserved to the Media. Author unrevealed

Natan Sharansky   Do not "compromise for the sake of stability with those who will come to power -- and who, inevitably, if they have the opportunity to lead as dictators, will try to lead as dictators"

George Orwell> ("Politics and the English Language," 1946 )
"A scrupulous writer, in every sentence that he writes, will ask himself at least four questions, thus: 1. What am I trying to say? 2. What words will express it? 3. What image or idiom will make it clearer? 4. Is this image fresh enough to have an effect? And he will probably ask himself two more: 1. Could I put it more shortly? 2. Have I said anything that is avoidably ugly?:"

In the syle of Ranganathan:
There is no paper so bad that it cannot be published.
OR "Every paper has its journal"

But: There are some papers so good that they cannot be published anywhere.
