I need to absorb knowledge lest my brain dry up.
I cannot say anything that hasn't already been better said:
"It is entirely conceivable that life's splendor forever lies in wait about each of us in all its fullness, but veiled from view, deep down, invisible, far off" - Kafka
"Never engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed person" -Anonymous
"Only when we know little do we know anything; doubt grows with knowledge" -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
"All the trouble in the world is due to the fact that man cannot sit still in a room" -Blaise Pascal
And as to this great website:
"Writing...is a sleep deeper than that of dath, and just as one would and cannot tear the dead from their graves, so I must not and cannot be torn from my desk at night" -Kafka
