Three quotes I reread every day

Clarity, above all, has been my aim. I prefer a clear statement subsequently disproved to a misty dictum capable of some profound interpretation which can be welcomed as a “great thought.” It is not by “great thoughts,” but by careful and detailed analysis, that the kind of technical philosophy which I value can be advanced. [Bertrand Russell]

Everything is vague to a degree you do not realize till you have tried to make it precise. [Bertrand Russell]

Quintessential: (1) of the purse and essential essence of something. (2) of or relating to the most perfect embodiment of something.  (I just love this word)
