„Time will come when one's safety lies in ten things: nine of which are in staying aloof from men, and the tenth in staying silent.“

—  ʿAlī ibn Mūsā ar-Ridā, Ibn Shu’ba al-Harrani, Tuhaf al-'Uqul, p. 446-450.

„Nine-tenths of the value of a sense of humor in writing is not in the things it makes one write but in the things it keeps one from writing.“

—  Robert Benchley American comedian 1889 - 1945
Context: Nine-tenths of the value of a sense of humor in writing is not in the things it makes one write but in the things it keeps one from writing. It is especially valuable in this respect in serious writing, and no one without a sense of humor should ever write seriously. For without knowing what is funny, one is constantly in danger of being funny without knowing it. LIFE magazine (8 March 1929)

„Stay weird, stay different — and then, when it’s your turn, and you are standing on this stage, please pass the same message to the next person who comes along.“

—  Graham Moore (writer) screenwriter 1981
Context: Here’s the thing. Alan Turing never got to stand on a stage like this and look out at all of these disconcertingly attractive faces. I do. And that’s the most unfair thing I’ve ever heard. So in this brief time here, what I wanted to do was say this: When I was 16-years-old, I tried to kill myself because I felt weird and I felt different, and I felt like I did not belong. And now I’m standing here — and so I would like this moment to be for this kid out there who feels like she’s weird or she’s different or she doesn’t fit in anywhere: Yes, you do. I promise you do. Stay weird, stay different — and then, when it’s your turn, and you are standing on this stage, please pass the same message to the next person who comes along.
