War: first, one hopes to win; then one expects the enemy to lose; then, one is satisfied that he too is suffering; in the end, one is surprised that everyone has lost.

-In Thomas Szasz, "Anti-Freud: Karl Kraus's Criticism of Psychoanalysis and Psychiatry", ch. 8 (1976). Die Fackel (Vienna, Oct. 9, 1917), no. 462/71.

War is the hope that one will be better off; next, the expectation that the other fellow will be worse off; then, the satisfaction that he isn't any better off; and, finally, the surprise at everyone's being worse off.

Karl Kraus (1874/1936). Austrian satirist.

Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get - only what you are expecting to give - which is everything.

What you will receive in return varies. But it really has no connection with what you give. You give because you love and cannot help giving.

To fear is one thing. To let fear grab you by the tail and swing you around is another.

Katherine Paterson


Humility does not mean you think less of yourself. It means you think of yourself less.

Ken Blanchard


A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world: everyone you meet is your mirror.

I liken starting one's computing career with Unix, say as an undergraduate, to being born in East Africa. It is intolerably hot, your body is covered with lice and flies, you are malnourished and you suffer from numerous curable diseases. But, as far as young East Africans can tell, this is simply the natural condition and they live within it. By the time they find out differently, it is too late. They already think that the writing of shell scripts is a natural act.

Ken Pier. Computer scientist at Xerox PARC.


Sometimes you have to take the leap, and build your wings on the way down.
