random quotes ... to amuse, inspire, enrage:
  If people feel they understand the world around them, or probably, even if they have the conviction that they could understand it if they wanted to, then and only then are they able to feel that they can make a difference through their decisions and activities. Without this conviction, people usually live with the sense of being eternally pushed around by alien events and forces.
