I try to highlight or keep a list of memorable quotes or passages from my readings over the years.

Let's share some here.

"The really unforgivable acts are committed by calm men in beautiful green silk rooms, who deal death wholesale, by the shipload, without lust, or anger, or desire, or any redeeming emotion to excuse them but cold fear of some pretended future. But the crimes they hope to prevent in that future are imaginary. The ones they commit in the present — they are real. –Lois Bujold from Shards of Honor.


"No intelligent idea can gain general acceptance unless some stupidity is mixed in with it. Collective thought is stupid because it's collective. Nothing passes into the realm of the collective without leaving at the border -- like a toll -- most of the intelligence it contained."- Fernando Pessoa
