"Never catch a falling knife." - Oft-quoted investing saying:
"I believe that scientific knowledge has fractal properties, that no matter how much we learn, whatever is left, however small it may seem, is just an infinitely complex as the whole was to start with. That, I think, is the secret of the Universe." - Isaac Asimov, I. Asimov
"The sublime must always be great; the beautiful can also be small." - Kant
"...look at those folks in the world, near and far, who champion the same ideas and opinions as you, and then, all importantly, look further at their associations, choices, behaviors, and priorities, while understanding that like attracts like." - The Universe
"Real wealth, real value, real meaning, I believe, comes not from the road less traveled, but the road never traveled before. (Scary? Yes. Lonely? Yes. I think it’s beautiful)." - Via
