La perfection est atteinte non quand il ne reste rien à ajouter, mais quand il ne reste rien à enlever. (Antoine de Saint Exupery)

Another way: Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem

The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways; the point, however, is to change it. (Karl Marx)

What do I think of Western civilization? I think it would be a very good idea. (Mohandas Gandhi)

Wherever law ends, tyranny begins (John Locke)

Freiheit ist immer die Freiheit des Andersdenkenden Rosa Luxemburg

A freedom which is only interested in denying freedom must be denied. And it is not true that the recognition of the freedom of others limits my own freedom: to be free is not to have the power to do anything you like; it is to be able to surpass the given toward an open future; the existence of others as a freedom defines my situation and is even the condition of my own freedom. I am oppressed if I am thrown into prison, but not if I am kept from throwing my neighbor into prison. - Simone de Beauvoir, Ethics of Ambiguity

Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. -- William Morris

Love is like quicksilver in the hand. Leave the fingers open and it stays. Clutch it, and it darts away. -- Dorothy Parker
