"Property is theft!". - Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
"Never are Tyrants born of Anarchy. You see them flourish only behind the screen of Law." - de Sade

There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.”
 Albert Einstein 
Bancile angajeaza oameni stupizi si ii instruieste sa fie cat mai stupizi.
Banks hire dull people and train them to be even more dull.
Nassim Taleb from the "Black Swan"
A nerd is simply someone who thinks exceedingly inside the box.
Nassim Taleb from the "Black Swan"


We are already one. But we imagine that we are not. And what we have to recover is our original unity. What we have to be is what we are.”
– Thomas Merton

"Toate spiritele profunde au nevoie de o masca: mai mult decat atat, in jurul fiecarui spirit profund se formeaza neincetat o masca, datorita interpretarii invariabil false, adica anoste, a tuturor cuvintelor sale, a tuturor pasilor sai, a tuturor manifestarilor vietii sale." Nietzsche


Part of me suspects that I'm a loser, and the other part of me thinks I'm God Almighty.
John Lennon

"Governments seem to work very hard to provide as many distractions in people’s daily lives as they can. This is because if you can keep the population living on the edge all the time they end up so caught up with the rigors of daily modern life, getting to work, paying the bills, looking out for the kids, worrying about the economy, the college fund, the groceries, the neighbors, terrorists, God, taxes, fine print, the environment and keeping up with the Jones, they don’t really notice, or even often care, about looking at the bigger picture to see what’s going on all around them, let alone what may have happened in the past.” 
– Max Igan




“The educational system is supposed to train people to be obedient, conformist, not think too much, do what you’re told, stay passive, don’t cause any crises of democracy, don’t raise any questions, and so on. That’s basically what the system is about. Even the fact that the system has a lot of stupidity in it has a function; it means that people are filtered out for obedience. If you can guarantee lots of stupidity in the educational system—you know, like stupid assignments, things like that— you know that the only people who will make it through are people like me and most of you, I guess, who are willing to do it no matter how stupid it is because, well, we want to go to the next step… So you may know that this assignment is idiotic and the guy up there couldn’t think his way out of a paper bag but you’ll do it anyway because that’s the way that you get to the next class…Well, there are people that don’t do that. There are people who say, ‘I’m not gonna do it, it’s too ridiculous.’ Those people are called behavioral problems.” (Noam Chomsky)

"Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michaelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children." (Pablo Picasso)

One had to cram all this stuff into one's mind for the examinations, whether one liked it or not. This coercion had such a deterring effect on me that, after I had passed the final examination, I found the consideration of any scientific problems distasteful to me for an entire year." - Einstein



" Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth - more than ruin - more even than death... Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man."
Bertrand Russell

" Fortunately for us, there have been traitors and there have been heretics, blasphemers, thinkers, investigators, lovers of liberty, men of genius who have given their lives to better the condition of their fellow-men. It may be well enough here to ask the question: What is greatness? A great man adds to the sum of knowledge, extends the horizon of thought, releases souls from the Bastille of fear, crosses unknown and mysterious seas, gives new islands and new continents to the domain of thought, new constellations to the firmament of mind. A great man does not seek applause or place; he seeks for truth; he seeks the road to happiness, and what he ascertains he gives to others. A great man throws pearls before swine, and the swine are sometimes changed to men. If the great had always kept their pearls, vast multitudes would be barbarians now. A great man is a torch in the darkness, a beacon: in superstition's night, an inspiration and a prophecy. Greatness is not the gift of majorities; it cannot be thrust upon any man; men cannot give it to another; they can give place and power, but not greatness. The place does not make the man, nor the scepter the king. Greatness is from within."
Robert Ingersoll
