So I managed to append 2 pages to my Master's thesis with a bunch of my favorite quotes.
1/ “The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds the most
discoveries, is not "Eureka!" (I found it!) but 'That's funny...”
― Isaac Asimov
2/ “It’s hard to know how people select a course in life,” Amos said. “The big choices we make are practically random. The small choices probably tell us more about who we are."
― Michael Lewis, The Undoing Project
3/ "Maybe there is a beast… maybe it's only us.”
― William Golding, Lord of the Flies
4/ “You don't have to be a hero to accomplish great things-to compete. You can just be an ordinary chap, sufficiently motivated to reach challenging goals.”
― Edmund Hillary, High Adventure
5/ "Only the autodidacts are free.”
― Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Antifragile
6/ "No matter how sophisticated our choices, how good we are at dominating the odds, randomness will have the last word."
― Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Fooled by Randomness
7/ "Weakness and ignorance are not barriers to survival, but arrogance is."
― Liu Cixin, Death's End
8/ "No, emptiness is not nothingness. Emptiness is a type of existence. You must use this existential emptiness to fill yourself.”
― Liu Cixin, The Three-Body Problem
9/ “There are other Annapurnas in the lives of men.”
― Maurice Herzog, Annapurna
10/ “Happiness [is] only real when shared”
― Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild
11/ “It’s a wonder to be alive. If you don’t understand that, how can you search for anything deeper?”
― Liu Cixin, The Dark Forest
12/ “Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road.”
― Jack Kerouac, On the Road
13/ “Remember that you are a Black Swan.”
― Nassim Nicholas Taleb, The Black Swan
