Television is a medium of entertainment which permits millions of people to listen to the same joke at the same time, and
yet remain lonesome.
T. S. Eliot
If thou survive my well-contented day,
When that churl Death my bones with dust shall cover
And shalt by fortune once more re-survey
These poor rude lines of thy deceased lover,
Compare them with the bett\'ring of the time,
And though they be outstripp\'d by every pen,
Reserve them for my love, not for their rhyme,
Exceeded by the height of happier men.
O! then vouchsafe me but this loving thought:
\'Had my friend\'s Muse grown with this growing age,
A dearer birth than this his love had brought,
To march in ranks of better equipage:
But since he died and poets better prove,
Theirs for their style I\'ll read, his for his love\'.
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the
source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a
stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as
good as dead: his eyes are closed. --Albert Einstein
Sometimes a scream is better than a thesis. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
