7. "What caused me to undertake the catalog was the nebula I discovered above the southern horn of Taurus on September 12, 1758, while observing the comet of that year. ... This nebula had such a resemblance to a comet in its form and brightness that I endeavored to find others, so that astronomers would not confuse these same nebulae with comets just beginning to shine. I observed further with suitable refractors for the discovery of comets, and this is the purpose I had in mind in compiling the catalog.After me, the celebrated Herschel published a catalog of 2000 which he has observed. This unveiling the sky, made with instruments of great aperture, does not help in the perusal of the sky for faint comets. Thus my object is different from his, and I need only nebulae visible in a telescope of two feet [focal length]."
Author: Charles Messier

10. "The safety gap is so large, in fact, that planes would still be safer than cars even if the threat of terrorism were unimaginably worse than it actually is: An American professor calculated that even if terrorists were hijacking and crashing one passenger jet a week in the United States, a person who took one flight a month for a year would have only a 1-in-135,000 chance of being killed in a hijacking--a trivial risk compared to the annual 1-in-6,000 odds of being killed in a car crash."
Author: Daniel Gardner

15. "Wissenschaft und Religion befinden sich in einem tiefen Konflikt. Das können wir rund um die Welt beobachten. Beide sind auf der Suche nach derselben Sache: der Wahrheit der Existenz. Es kann keine Versöhnung zwischen den beiden geben, solange die eine Seite privilegierten, göttlichen Zugang zur absoluten Wahrheit für sich beansprucht. Meiner Meinung nach ist die Wissenschaft der Weg zur Wahrheit. Wir brauchen keine Propheten, jungfräulichen Geburten oder Schrifttafeln von Gott. Die Wissenschaft wird den Schleier vor Gottes Gesicht lüften – des wahren Gottes dieses wunderschönen Universums. Das ist nicht der von Menschen gemachte Gott, der vor 2.000 Jahren von einem Hirtenvolk erfunden wurde. Zumindest ist das meine Hoffnung."
Author: Douglas Preston

Author: James L. Buckley
21. "Is a picture really worth a thousand words? What thousand words? A thousand words from a lunatic, or a thousand words from Nietzsche? Actually, Nietzsche was a lunatic, but you see my point. What about a thousand words from a rambler vs. 500 words from Mark Twain? He could say the same thing quicker and with more force than almost any other writer. One thousand words from Ginsberg are not even worth one from Wilde. It's wild to declare the equivalency of any picture with any army of 1,000 words. Words from a writer like Wordsworth make you appreciate what words are worth."
Author: Jarod Kintz
22. "I want to price my next book and adjust it for the coming hyperinflation. So instead of the normal one dollar price, I'll charge $1,000,000.00. If I sell one copy now I'll be a happy man, and if I sell a million copies after hyperinflation hits in a few years then I'll be equally as happy."

Author: Melissa De La Cruz
38. "In the case of patentable ideas such as the wheelbarrow, the idea of unpriced spillovers is more plausible. Yet there is no reason to believe that it is of practical importance. Indeed, there is a modern example of the wheelbarrow – that of Travelpro – the inventor of the modern wheeled roll-on suitcase with a retractable handle. Obviously such an idea can not both be useful and be secret – and once you see a wheeled roll-on suitcase it is not difficult to figure out how to make one of your own. Needless to say, Travelpro was quickly imitated – and so quickly you probably have never even heard of Travelpro. Never-the-less – despite their inability to garner an intellectual monopoly over their invention – they found it worthwhile to innovate – and they still do a lucrative business today, claiming "425,000 Flight Crew Members Worldwide Choose Travelpro Luggage."

That should be an international scandal."

Author: Phillip Phillips

They must have had different names or you'd remember them."I don't know why I was holding out hope that Dad would be all, "Why, yes, let me check the Hecate Enrollment Roster 9000 computer database." Those lists were probably written on pieces of parchment with quill feathers."

Now, seeking the excitement of real combat, he looked for a fortress to besiege, and Azov, isolated at the bottom of the Ukrainian steppe, suited admirably."
