[[Cleopatra's] Power Has Been Made To Derive From Her Sexuality, For Obvious Reason; As One Of Caesar's Murderers Had Noted, 'How Much More Attention People Pay To Their Fears Than To Their Memories!' It Has Always Been Preferable To Attribute A Woman's Success To Her Beauty Rather Than To Her Brains, To Reduce Her To The Sum Of Her Sex Life.]

Quotes About Proper Planning

"Dear Dr. Ortiz— Congratulations on your discovery! We found the object, too, about six months ago and have been studying it in detail for the past few months. It has a few interesting properties that you might find interesting. Most interestingly, it has a satellite, and the orbital solution gives a system mass of about 28% of that of the Pluto-Charon system. Its still probably the biggest KBO around but it has a sufficiently high albedo that it is not quite as big or massive as Pluto. Ive got a paper describing the satellite that, ironically, I was planning to submit tomorrow. I will forward the paper to you as I submit it. I am sure that I will get inquiries about your new object from different people; is there [or is there going to be] a website describing your survey or your discovery that I can point people to? Again, congratulations on a very nice discovery!" - Author: Mike Brown
