If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe.
Dr. Carl Sagan
We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think its forever.
It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.
Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge.
We are the product of 4.5 billion years of fortuitous, slow biological evolution. There is no reason to think that the evolutionary process has stopped. Man is a transitional animal. He is not the climax of creation.
I am prepared to die, but there is no cause for which I am prepared to kill.
(October 02, 1869 - January 30, 1948)
We continue to establish a strong correlation between poor stock performance and companies with questionable earnings quality. Investors must be very careful in reviewing the reported financial information and question the results. Restatements usually lead to lower stock prices.
If there is sin against life, it consists… in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life.
