"Reputation is what others know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself. Guard your honor; let your reputation fall where it may. And outlive the bastards." -Aral Vorkosigan, A Civil Campaign
"I have a theory that says no one can tell the difference between a GREAT idea and a stupid one...People can often tell the difference between a run-of-the-mill "GOOD" idea and a bad idea. But GREAT ideas often look identical to stupid ones right up until the moment they work. "
- Scott Adams
