Quote: We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won't need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don't fire cannons to call attention to their shining - they just shine.

Which reminds me of

Quote:
And the wind whips away at my walls night and day,
I’m near constantly frozen and drenched in salt spray.
I’ve been battered and beaten and near washed away,
Here I am, I’m your man, I’m your lighthouse.

-- Traditional Yorkshire ballad (*)

Quote:On GM crops: I think we've missed a trick there. We could develop wheat with the properties of velcro, to catch whatever it is that's forming those crop circles. But then the spaceship would have to have the corresponding velcro so it's a bit of a long shot.

The first person who came to mind after reading this quote is Novak Djokovic. Considered mentally fragile at the start of his career, he's now perhaps mentally the strongest player in men's tennis.
