Yes, we have to divide up our time like that, between our politics and
our equations. But to me our equations are far more important, for
politics are only a matter of present concern. A mathematical equation
stands forever. --Albert Einstein
When I was a kid, a book I read advised young artist to be
themselves. That decided it for me. I was a corny kind of guy, so I went
in for corn. Walt Disney
A man\'s got to know his limitations.
For shame! deny that thou bear\'st love to any,
Who for thy self art so unprovident.
Grant, if thou wilt, thou art belov\'d of many,
But that thou none lov\'st is most evident:
For thou art so possess\'d with murderous hate,
That \'gainst thy self thou stick\'st not to conspire,
Seeking that beauteous roof to ruinate
Which to repair should be thy chief desire.
O! change thy thought, that I may change my mind:
Shall hate be fairer lodg\'d than gentle love?
Be, as thy presence is, gracious and kind,
Or to thyself at least kind-hearted prove:
Make thee another self for love of me,
That beauty still may live in thine or thee.
