When you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras.
Dr. Theodore Woodward

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ‘Wow! What a Ride!’
Hunter S. Thompson

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.
Albert Einstein

Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and a few to be chewed and digested.

The urgent are not important, and the important are never urgent.

Those who can imagine anything, can create the impossible.
Alan Turing

If you want to make a living flower, you don’t build it physically cell by cell. You grow it from the seed. This hinges on a simple scientific proposition: the great complexity of an organic system, which is essential to its life, cannot be created from above directly; it can only be generated indirectly.
Christopher Alexander

Work hard at your job and you can make a living. Work hard on yourself and you can make a fortune.
— Jim Rohn

The world we choose to build is the one we’ll inhabit. Technology empowers both the powerful and the powerless, and if we want a world with more liberty and less control, we’re going to have to fight for it.

Edward Snowden

Anybody can become angry – that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way – that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy.

Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity…The grave will supply plenty of time for silence.
Christopher Hitchens

Youth is wasted on the young.
George Bernard Shaw

The minute you choose to do what you really want to do, it’s a different kind of life.
Buckminster Fuller

People never leave a sinking ship until they see the lights of another ship approaching.
Buckminster Fuller

There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.
Buckminster Fuller

The measure of intelligence is the ability to change. 
— Albert Einstein

All things in moderation, including moderation.
Oscar Wilde (?)

This is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.
Winston Churchill

Llama la atención que hasta ahora hemos utilizado principalmente nuestra mayor productividad para consumir más cosas en lugar de disfrutar de más tiempo libre. El desempleo se debe en parte a la falta de ingresos (fundamentalmente un problema de distribución), pero también se trata de una falta de autoestima y estatus social.
Nick Bostrom

Lo único que tiene valor es vivir una vida de forma sincera y correcta. Y sé paciente con aquellos que no lo hacen.
Marco Aurelio

The future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed.

Isaac Newton

El fracaso es simplemente la oportunidad de empezar de nuevo, esta vez de forma más inteligente.
Henry Ford

The best way to predict the future is to invent it.
Alan Kay

Nadie se ha convertido en pobre por dar a los demás.
Anne Frank

I use not only all the brains I have, but all I can borrow.
Woodrow Wilson

A man should keep his little brain attic stocked with all the furniture that he is likely to need, and the rest he can put away in the lumber room of his library, where he can get it if he wants it.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The more you use your brain, the more brain you will have to use.
George A. Dorsey

Life is ours to be spent, not to be saved.
D.H. Lawrence

I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.
D.H. Lawrence

Sooner or later in life everyone discovers that perfect happiness is unrealizable, but there are few who pause to consider the antithesis: that perfect unhappiness is equally unattainable. The obstacles preventing the realization of both these extreme states are of the same nature: they derive from our human condition which is opposed to everything infinite.
Primo Levi

Any advanced form of technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Arthur C. Clarke / Larry Niven *

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom always to tell the difference.
Kurt Vonnegut

El peor enemigo del conocimiento no es la ignorancia, es la ilusión de conocimiento.
Stephen Hawking

People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.
Isaac Asimov

La primera regla de cualquier tecnología utilizada en una empresa es que la automatización aplicada a una operación eficiente aumentará la eficiencia.
La segunda es que la automatización aplicada a una operación ineficiente aumentará la ineficiencia.
Bill Gates

Sólo un necio confunde valor con precio.
Antonio Machado

¿Por qué debería temer a la muerte?
Si yo soy, la muerte no es.
Si la muerte es, yo no lo soy.
¿Por qué debería temer aquello que solo existe cuando no lo hago yo?

Cuando dices SI a otros, asegúrate que no te dices NO a ti mismo.
Paulo Coelho

El universo tuvo un día sin un ayer.
Georges Lemaitre

To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead, or endeavoring to convert an atheist by scripture.
Thomas Paine

The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.
Alvin Toffler

We are not nouns, we are verbs. I am not a thing…an actor, a writer…I am a person who does things…I write, I act…and I never know what I’m going to do next. I think you can be imprisoned if you think of yourself as a noun.
Stephen Fry

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.
Viktor Frankl

It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner,
but from their regard to their own interest.
Adam Smith

To sin by silence, when we should protest, Makes cowards out of men.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox

If we saw tomorrow’s newspaper today, tomorrow would never happen.
Kenneth Boulding

The cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.

Walden – Henry Thoreau

Build a good name. Keep your name clean. Don’t make compromises, don’t worry about making a bunch of money or being successful. Be concerned about doing good work. Protect your work and if you build a good name, eventually that name will be its own currency.
Patti Smith
