Welcome to our 17th edition of Pithy F*rging Sayings gathered from the singularity. Eighteen is always a big one, and the next go round of PFS will probably happen after the big remodeling of this site.
As always the citation of these sayings, quotes and dialogues does not necessarily imply endorsement, the goal is to provoke thought.
"The people are at such a low stage of moral and rational development, that it's obvious they're bound to oppose everything that's strange to them...

They give the peasants fresh wants."---Leo Tolstoy
"We are at the same time spectators and actors in the great drama of nature."---Niels Bohr
"It is clear that knowledge of what is, does not open the door directly to what should be."---Albert Einstein
"Nature in the form of man begins to recognize itself."---Victor Weiskopf
"It comes down to the same thing as when I was a kid. Can I create a character that will make her happy, that will make her laugh?"---Tom Cruise
