A Quote by Lewis Carroll on speaking, politeness, rules, children, seen not heard, speak when spoken to, logic, argument, and conversation

'Speak when you're spoken to!' The Queen sharply interrupted her.
'But if everybody obeyed that rule,' said Alice, who was always ready for a little argument, 'and if you only spoke when you were spoken to, and the other person always waited for you to begin, you see nobody would ever say anything, so that -- '
'Ridiculous!' cried the Queen.  'Why, don't you see, child -- ' here she broke off with a frown, and, after thinking for a minute, suddenly changed the subject of the conversation. 

Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898)

A Quote by Odysseas Elytis on legal, code, laws, skin, resiliency, stretching, and rules

We need a legal code that develops like our skin during our growing years.  Something both youthful and strong... So what we humans birth might surpass without oppressing us.

A Quote by jonathan lockwood huie on life, supposed, fair, expectations, game, rules, and gratitude

Life is NOT "Supposed to be Fair."  Know that there is no single way that life is "supposed" to be.  Demanding that life meet our expectations is a sure fire recipe for a miserable existence.  Life is a game with no rules.  Life just happens to us regardless of our best intentions.  Our only path to happiness lies in being open to receiving whatever life throws at us - with Gratitude.  Have NO Expectations of life.

If love is a game, it has to be the hardest game in the world. After all, how can anyone win a game where there's no rules?

A Quote by C.S. Lewis on desperate remedies and rules

"I am not allowed to use desperate remedies until desperate diseases are really apparent.  Otherwise we become just like our enemies--breaking all the rules whenever we imagine that it might possibly do some vague good to humanity in the remote future." -Director Ransom

A Quote by David Berlinski on axiom, mathematics, symbol, rules, and intuition

An axiomatic system comprises axioms and theorems and requires a certain amount of hand-eye coordination before it works.  A formal system comprises an explicit list of symbols, an explicit set of rules governing their cohabitation, an explicit list of axioms, and, above all, an explicit list of rules explicitly governing the steps that the mathematician may take in going from assumptions to conclusions.  No appeal to meaning nor to intuition.  Symbols lose their referential powers; inferences become mechanical.
