– Elon Musk (1971 -)
|Has joy any survival value in the operations of evolution? I suspect that it does; I suspect that the morose and fearful are doomed to quick extinction. Where there is no joy there can be no courage; and without courage all other virtues are useless.
– Edward Abbey (1927-1989)
|If those arrangements [the fundamental arrangements of knowledge] were to disappear as they appeared…then one cancertainly wager that man would be erased, like a face drawn in sand at the edge of the sea.
– Michel Foucault (19261984)
