Couple O' Quotes

[W]hen people thought the earth was flat, they were wrong. When people thought the earth was spherical, they were wrong. But if you think that thinking the earth is spherical is just as wrong as thinking the earth is flat, then your view is wronger than both of them put together.

Isaac Asimov, in this essay.

All our ideas may be wrong. But some are definitely more wrong than others. (Via Phil.)

I have a dream. Someday, I really want to doodle on a dog.
Can I draw on whiskers?
Can I make him look like a panda?
I've asked many times to draw on the pets of my friends, but nobody ever lets me. “Get your own dog to draw on,” they say. Are they crazy?
I wouldn't want a weird-looking dog like that.

Eiichiro Oda

From the foreword to this book.
