More aphorisms

The peculiar arrangement of the human ocular apparatus precludes one's viewing that which is immediately anterior to one's olfactory organ.

Flowers are the sexual organs of plants; they are far more attractive than those of animals.

We all have freedom of choice, but we are not free to choose the consequences of our choices.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge” Albert Einstein.

"If I could remember the names of all those particles I could have been a botanist" Enrico Fermi.

Fame is a food that dead men eat,-
I have no stomach for such meat.

What is fame? An empty bubble;
Gold? A transient, shining trouble.

Love of fame is the last thing that even learned men can
Bear to be parted from – Tacitus

It’s not the violence of the few but the silence of the many that scares me.

People will not care how much you know until they know how much you care.

God isn’t interested in your ability; just your availability.
