If you want a language with no subsets, you must make it small."
Author: C.A.R. Hoare

Rather, it damages the best part of him, and it becomes imperative to partition work off from the rest of life."

And yet I recognise that we live our lives, and even keep our sanity, by the lights of this treachery and this unreliability, just as we build our love of country on these paper worlds of misapprehension and untruth. Perhaps this is our nature, and perhaps unaccountably it is part of our glory as a creature, that we can build our best and most permanent buildings on foundations of utter dust."

46. "In fact, without a specification of a creature's goals, the very idea of intelligence is meaningless. A toadstool could be given a genius award for accomplishing with pinpoint precision and unerring reliability, the feat of sitting exactly where it is sitting.

Author: Steven Pinker

But having an easy lay within reach is convenient." It's just a matter of time before you spread your legs for me." ...

Anyone who tried to protect him ended up paying a high price. He didn't know if his old friends were dead, but he was certain whatever fate had found them must have been bad."
