(Bad Joke) "Why do all Iraqi soldiers carry a piece of sandpaper? They need a map." - geraldweir
"A good wife always forgives her husband when she’s wrong." - Rodney Dangerfield
"Science is the outcome of being prepared to live without certainty, and therefore a mark of maturity. It embraces doubt and loose ends." - AC Grayling, philosopher, 60, London
"If no one responds to your call, go forward alone.
If no one talks to you, oh luckless one,
If everyone turns away from you in fear,
Reveal your thoughts and express your ideas to yourself.
If everyone leaves you while you are travelling a dangerous road,
If no one wants to look after you,
Walk on alone, on the road strewn with thorns, trampling on them with bleeding feet.
If no one shows a light, if in the dark stormy night everyone shuts their doors,
Use your rib as a torch, lit from the fire of thunder." - Rabindrantah Tagore
