“The truly strong and sound mind is the one that can embrace equally great things and small. I would have a man great in great things, and elegant in little things.” —Samuel Johnson

“The movers and shakers have always been obsessive nuts.  Name any mover or shaker you like–I don’t care if it’s Attila the Hun or Jesus of Nazareth or Karl Marx or F.D.R. or Winston Churchill.  They were all obsessive nuts. They were not even-minded people who saw both sides of the question.  Far from it.” —Theodore Sturgeon, late American science fiction author and screenwriter
