  • Something to think about

    The first principle is that you must not fool yourself — and you are the easiest person to fool.
    (Richard Feynman)

    Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters
    cannot be trusted with important matters. (Albert Einstein)

    Ehrlichkeit ist ein schönes Juwel, aber ganz außer Mode. (aus England)
