Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people. { Admiral Hyman Rickover, father of the US nuclear navy }

Somebody has classified people into three categories:
into the uneducated, who see only disorder;
into the half-educated, who see and follow the rules;
and into the educated, who see and appreciate the exceptions.
The computer clearly belongs to the category of half-educated.
{ Heinz Zemanek, IFIP President 1971-1974 }

Wer heutzutage den Mut hat um sich unpopulaer zu machen,
verdient nur dafuer Beifall { Leonardo Sciascia }

Nur die duemmsten Kaelber waehlen seine Metzger selber.
