Four quotes by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1 July 1742 - 24 February 1799) was a German scientist, satirist and Anglophile. As a scientist, he was the first to hold a professorship explicitly dedicated to experimental physics in Germany. Today, he is remembered for his posthumous notebooks, which he himself called Sudelbuecher, a description modeled on the English bookkeeping term 'waste books', and for his discovery of the strange treelike patterns now called Lichtenberg figures.
A handful of soldiers is always better than a mouthful of arguments. [+]
He who is in love with himself has at least this advantage: he won't encounter many rivals. [+]
There are very many people who read simply to prevent themselves from thinking. [+]
