Quotes of the day

    While Lichtenberg’s comment is a source of laughter, the da Vinci comment is more demanding. Looking a the background, it can be considered a highly insulting comment. Because the adversaries of da Vinci certainly claimed sense, reason, and intellect for themselves as well. Like everyone does.

    A double-edged sword. I would never use these words in a discussion, avoiding risking deep-fried. Over a single candle.

    I would use these words only when I finally become Crowned Emporer-Padisha of the Inhabited Worlds etc etc. đŸ™‚
