Quotes of the Week

This week’s theme: Responsibility. Can you dig it?

“A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.”
~James Allen

‘”It’s a question of discipline,” the little prince told me later on.  “When you’ve finished washing and dressing each morning, you must tend your planet.”‘
~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince, 1943, translated from French by Richard Howard

“Most of us can read the writing on the wall; we just assume it’s addressed to someone else.
~Ivern Ball

And, for a touch of humor on the matter:

“Responsibility:  A detachable burden easily shifted to the shoulders of God, Fate, Fortune, Luck or one’s neighbor.  In the days of astrology it was customary to unload it upon a star.
~Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary

Technological Wisdom

Been on a bit of a sci-fi bent lately. Don’t know where it came from exactly, but so it goes, and as a result, the quotes of the week this week are technology themed…though none-too-optimistic and happy on the subject. Something that tends to occur in my own writing with the sci-fi. Nonetheless, enjoy! And later today, my pictures from Saturday’s adventures into the snow:

“Inventor:  A person who makes an ingenious arrangement of wheels, levers and springs, and believes it civilization.”  ~Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary

“It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.”  ~Albert Einstein

“Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards.”  ~Aldous Huxley
