This site is a collection of quotes I have discovered throughout the years and a few thoughts that have crossed my mind but never owned a blog to actually put them to words to.

The more I learn

يقول الامام الشافعي رحمه الله : كلـما أدبني الدهـر ... أراني نقص عقلي وإذا ما أزددت علما ... زادني علما بجهلي — أقوال وحكم الفلاسفة (@heekma) October 18, 2014 “The more I learn; the more I learn of my ignorance.” – Imām Shāfi’ī كلـما أدبني الدهـر … أراني نقص عقلي وإذا ما أزددت علما … زادني علما بجهلي

Losing Ones Self

“The greatest hazard of all, losing one’s self, can occur very quietly in the world, as if it were nothing at all.

Measure Of Intelligence

“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.” — Albert Einstein

The aim of argument

“The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory but progress.” — Karl Popper

Stephen Fry on librarlism

“It’s a strange paradox, that the liberals are illiberal in their demand for liberality. They are exclusive in their demand for inclusivity. They are homogenous in their demand for heterogeneity. They are somehow un-diverse in their call for diversity — you can be diverse, but not diverse in your opinions and in your language and in your behaviour. And that’s a terrible pity." — Stephen Fry

Du warst die Liebe meines Lebens

This one hit home. Article in German by Raquel Aldana about the one love of your life that will always be in the back of your mind, regardless of who you end up with.

Great man

A great man is hard on himself; a small man is hard on others. – Confuscious
