"Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity."

~George Smith Patton, War as I Knew It, 1947

"The theoretician believes in logic and believes that he despises dreams, intuition, and poetry. He does not recognize that these three fairies have only disguised themselves in order to dazzle him.... He does not know that he owes his greatest discoveries to them."

~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Wartime Writings 1939-1944,
translated from French by Norah Purcell
