Right now I’m having amnesia and déjà vu at the same time. I think I’ve forgotten this before.Steven Wright
Anyone who has ever dealt with the tax authorities, the educational system or any other complex bureaucracy knows that the truth hardly matters. What’s written on your form is far more important.
Yuval Noah Harari, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow
Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century;
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others,Marcus Tullius Cicero
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected,
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it,
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences,
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind,
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.
