"Ridicule is the tribute
that mediocrity pays to genius."
"All truth goes through three stages. First it is
ridiculed. Then it is violently opposed. Finally it is
accepted as self-evident."
"Man will occasionally stumble over the truth, but most
of the time he will pick himself up and continue on."
"When they think they know the answers, people are
difficult to guide. When they know they don't know,
people can find their own way."
Tao Te Ching
"Life can take many forms. Look at the forms life can
take on this planet alone. Here in this bush, there are
insects you could easily mistake for rocks or for pieces
of bark - until one of them stings you, that is. Life
does not have to consist of bipeds who move and breath
and smoke cigars as we do. I have said it before and I
say it again - the universe is a gigantic chamber of
possibility where everything has the chance and the
right to happen, and so we must not have
cut-and-dry theories regarding just how life should
look. Life could surprise us!"
The official historian of
the Zulu nation, in his book, Song Of The Stars
The Children of The Matrix?
