“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”

―Stephen Jay Gould
As quoted in New Scientist, March 8, 1979, p. 777
“We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.”
