"Apathy can be overcome by enthusiasm, and enthusiasm can only be aroused by two things: first, an ideal, with takes the imagination by storm, and second, a definite intelligible plan for carrying that ideal into practice." - Arnold J Toynbee

"We have to get used to the idea that our next idea is far more powerful than the idea we had last." - Everette Bogue, Far Beyond The Stars
