Quote of the Day

“O gentlemen, you know, maybe I only consider myself an intelligent man because all my life I could neither begin nor finish anything. Perhaps, perhaps I am a chatterbox, a harmless, annoying chatterbox, as we all are. But what can be done if the immediate and sole purpose of every intelligent man is chattering, that is, the deliberate pouring of water through a sieve.”

– Fyodor Dostoyevsky
