Platonic Potter
« on: October 29, 2013, 09:19:35 PM »


Kristen's figured something important out: "the addition of 'Harry' to almost any Plato quote makes it seem legitimately like a nugget of wisdom out of the mouth of Albus Dumbledore."

"Death is not the worst that can happen to men, Harry."

"Harry, good actions give strength to ourselves and inspire good actions in others."

"He who commits injustice is ever made more wretched than he who suffers it, Harry."

"Harry, how can you prove whether at this moment we are sleeping, and all our thoughts are a dream; or whether we are awake, and talking to one another in the waking state?"

I'm more of a fan of the Robert Asprin quotes. He had amusing ones at the beginning of each chapter in the "Myth" series. Things like...

"In times of crisis, it is of utmost importance not to lose one's head" - M. Antoinette.

“Numerical superiority is of no consequence. In battle, victory will go to the best tactician."- G. A. Custer”

“Just a little off the top!"- A. Boleyn”

“To function efficiently, any group of people or employees must have faith in their leader."- Capt. Bligh(ret.)”

“Diplomacy is the delicate weapon of the civilized warrior."- Hun, A. T.”

“There's gotta be a way out of this dungeon."- G. Gygax”

And many, MANY more.

For computer folks, few top the ones Rick Cook threw into his Wizarding books:

"The three most dangerous things in the world are a programmer with a soldering iron, a hardware type with a program patch, and a user with an idea."

"Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far the Universe is winning."
