Noch so ein Knuth Zitat mit Tiefgang:

A person’s success in life is determined by having a high minimum, not a high maximum. If you can do something really well but there are other things at which you’re failing, the latter will hold you back. But if almost everything you do is up there, then you’ve got a good life. And so I try to learn how to get through things that others find unpleasant.

That’s one of the great things about music. You can sing a song to 85,000 people and they’ll sing it back for 85,000 different reasons.

Dave Grohl

I welcome their hatred

We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace—business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering.

They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob.

Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me—and I welcome their hatred.

― Franklin D. Roosevelt

Ich bin ein Pferd für einen Einspänner.

Er hatte recht: neue, wirklich kreative Ideen entstehen vorwiegend in kleinen Teams. Grössere Teams entwickeln vor allem bereits bekannte Ideen weiter (Quelle: DER SPIEGEL, 13/2019)

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
