Quotes of the day

Quatrevingt-treize, Victor Hugo:
La curiosité est une des formes de la bravoure féminine.


Most of you can probably deduce the meaning, but here's the translation anyway:
Curiosity is one of the feminine forms of bravery.


Cicero:
I always think Socrates was wiser. He refused to concern himself with matters of that kind, holding that problems about the physical universe were either too enormous for reason to comprehend or else quite irrelevant to human life.


And indeed there is no more degenerate kind of state than that in which the richest are supposed to be the best.
