Dr. Spock – On a few things

And what is it that makes one man an exceptional leader? We see indications that it is his negative side that makes him strong, that his evil side, if you will, properly controlled and disciplined, is vital to his strength.”

“May I say that I have not thoroughly enjoyed working with humans. I find their illogic and foolish emotions a constant irritant.”

“The fact that my internal arrangement differs from yours, doctor,  pleases me to no end.”

“It is curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want.”

“You may find that having is not so pleasing a thing as wanting. This is not logical but it is often true.”

~ Dr. Spock, Star Trek

Richard Feynman – On Happiness and Wealth

“Wealth is not happiness nor is swimming pools and villas. Nor is great work alone reward, or fame. Foreign places visited themselves give nothing. It is only you who bring to the places your heart, or in your great work feeling, or in your large house place. If you do this there is happiness.”

~Richard Feynman

Kierkegaard – On Madness

It is quite curious: naturally the life of a little insignificant thing is viewed with contempt, and is overlooked by all intelligent people; in return, the little insignificant thing sometimes takes revenge, for when a man goes mad it is almost always over some little insignificant thing.”

~Kierkegaard
