weapons

A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on defeat, kindness, reward, self-esteem, success, war, weapons, and words

LOGOMACHY, n. A war in which the weapons are words and the wounds punctures in the swim-bladder of self-esteem - a kind of contest in which, the vanquished being unconscious of defeat, the victor is denied the reward of success.

A Quote by Alfred North Whitehead on disappointment, effort, fatherhood, mathematics, science, study, water, and weapons

The study of mathematics is apt to commence in disappointment. . . . We are told that by its aid the stars are weighed and the billions of molecules in a drop of water are counted. Yet, like the ghost of Hamlet's father, this greatest science eludes the efforts of our mental weapons to grasp it.
