There was a time when the newspapers said that only twelve men understood the theory of relativity. I do not believe there ever was such a time. There might have been a time when only one man did, because he was the only guy who caught on, before he wrote his paper.

Don`t blindly believe what I say. Don`t believe me because others convince you of my words. Don`t believe anything you see, read, or hear from others, whether of authority, religious teachers or texts. Don`t rely on logic alone, nor speculation. Don`t infer or be deceived by appearances. Do not give up your authority and follow blindly the will of others. This way will lead to only delusion. Discover for yourself what is truth, what is real.

James Patterson

Give me a man or woman who has read a thousand books and you give me an interesting companion. Give me a man or woman who has read perhaps three and you give me a very dangerous enemy indeed.
