Hanlon's razor: Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.
Robert J. Hanlon
If ignorance isn't bliss, I don't know what is.
Suns are extinguished or become corrupted, planets perish and scatter across the wastes of the sky; other suns are kindled, new planets formed to make their revolutions or describe new orbits, and man, an infinitely minute part of a globe which itself is only an imperceptible point in the immense whole, believes that the universe is made for himself.
Baron d'Holbach (1723-1789)
The most thought-provoking thing in our thought-provoking time is that we are still not thinking.
Das Bedenklichste in unserer bedenklichen Zeit ist, dass wir noch nicht denken.
Martin Heidegger (1889-1976)
To surrender to ignorance and call it God has always been premature, and it remains premature today.
Isaac Asimov (1920-1997)
