“People matter. Objects don’t,”
he wrote on an object,
with a liar’s smile
on his face.

Accurate cynicism

January 25th, 2009

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.

— George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

Quality counts

January 21st, 2009

There is this wonderful short German phrase about quality being more important than quantity:

Qualität zählt!

Transcribed into English it reads:

Quality counts!

Of course, in English, one could wittily say “Quality matters!” Though, if you search the web for these treasures of linguistic and logical quality you will find similar quantities of texts stating the one or the other ;)

Since many writers even dare to add the statement “less is more” I wonder why they do not just stick to it.
