Lois McMaster Bujold, "Memory", 1996

"When you desire a consequence you damned well better take the action that would create it."

Albert Camus, The Rebel (1951)

"He who despairs over an event is a coward, but he who holds hope for the human condition is a fool."

Meaning of life...

"I see many people die because they judge that life is not worth living. I see others paradoxically getting killed for the ideas or illusions that give them a reason for living (what is called a reason for living is also an excellent reason for dying). I therefore conclude that the meaning of life is the most urgent of questions."

Albert Camus, The Myth of Sisyphus

Gordon Childe - Man Makes Himself

"The dead-weight of conservatism, largely a lazy and a cowardly distaste for the strenuous and painful activity of real thinking, has undoubtedly retarded human progress..."

The Walt Disney Way

"I dream, I test my dreams against my beliefs, I dare to take risks, and I execute my vision to make those dreams come true."

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

"Ethical axioms are found and tested not very differently from the axioms of science. Truth is what stands the test of experience."

"Every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving"

"The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources."

"Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labour in freedom."

"Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted."

Qual é o sentido da vida?

Nenhum! (...) mas o teu percurso faz o que dela criaste!
