Sayings for Sunday

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

-Robert Heinlein, The Notebooks of Lazarus Long

"When did the future switch from being a promise to being a threat?"

-Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters
