We prefer Shakespearean Sonnets, reflections on Space and Time, and posts along the lines of:
Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings. Bible
Yes, we have to divide up our time like that, between our politics and our equations. But to me our equations are far more important, for politics are only a matter of present concern. A mathematical equation stands forever. --Albert Einstein
It is our continuing goal to foster the world's greatest converstation.

I hate quotations. Tell me what you know. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
William Einstein Shakespeare :)
LXIII Against my love shall be as I am now, With Time's injurious hand crush'd and o'erworn; When hours have drain'd his blood and fill'd his brow With lines and wrinkles; when his youthful morn Hath travell'd on to age's steepy night; And all those beauties whereof now he's king Are vanishing, or vanished out of sight, Stealing away the treasure of his spring; For such a time do I now fortify Against confounding age's cruel knife, That he shall never cut from memory My sweet love's beauty, though my lover's life: His beauty shall in these black lines be seen, And they shall live, and he in them still green. --William Shakespeare
