“For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.”
-Neil deGrasse Tyson

"What is a country? A country is piece of land surrounded on all sides by boundaries, usually unnatural. Englishmen are dying for England, Americans are dying for America, Germans are dying for Germany, Russians are dying for Russia. Surely so many countries can’t all be worth dying for."

Joseph Heller, Catch 22 (via the-snowdens-of-yester-year)

"Because magical thinking fixes ignorance?" Love it.
