"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to think...the ones who never yawn nor say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars"

-Jack Kerouac



There are three things which are real: 

God, human folly and laughter.

The first two are beyond our comprehension. 

    So we must do what we can with the third.

           - The Ramayana

Einstein's Big Idea

“We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”



 In 1859 the Great Blondin, the man who invented the high-wire act, announced to the world that he intended to cross Niagara Falls on a tightrope. As the story goes, 5,000 people gathered to watch. Halfway across, Blondin suddenly stopped, steadied himself, back flipped into the air, landed squarely on the rope, and then continued safely to the other side. Just as he was about to begin yet another crossing, this time pushing a wheelbarrow, he turned to the crowd and shouted, "Who believes that I can cross pushing this wheelbarrow?" Every hand in the crowd went up. Blondin pointed at one man.
"Do you believe that I can do it?" he asked.
"Yes, I believe you can," said the man.
"Are you certain?" Blondin asked.
"Yes," said the man.
"Absolutely certain?"
"Yes, absolutely certain."
"Thank you," said Blondin. "Then, sir, get into the wheelbarrow."

"Why I Read"

"I read because one life isn't enough, and in the page of a book I can be anybody;

I read because the words that build the story become mine, to build my life;

I read not for happy endings but for new beginnings; I'm just beginning myself, and I wouldn't mind a map;

I read because I have friends who don't, and young though they are, they're beginning to run out of material;

I read because every journey begins at the library, and it's time for me to start packing;

I read because one of these days I'm going to get out of this town, and I'm going to go everywhere and meet everybody, and I want to be ready."

--Richard Peck
