We prefer deep reflections on Philosophy, Shakespearean Sonnets, and tender musings along the lines of:
We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them. --Albert Einstein
No, this trick won't work...How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? --Albert Einstein
It is our continuing goal to foster the world's greatest converstation.

CIII Alack! what poverty my Muse brings forth, That having such a scope to show her pride, The argument, all bare, is of more worth Than when it hath my added praise beside! O! blame me not, if I no more can write! Look in your glass, and there appears a face That over-goes my blunt invention quite, Dulling my lines, and doing me disgrace. Were it not sinful then, striving to mend, To mar the subject that before was well? For to no other pass my verses tend Than of your graces and your gifts to tell; And more, much more, than in my verse can sit, Your own glass shows you when you look in it. --William Shakespeare
All The Best,
William Einstein Shakespeare :)
I never think of the future. It comes soon enough. --Albert Einstein
