The perception of beauty is a moral test. ~ Henry David Thoreau

It is not enough to be industrious; so are the ants. What are you industrious about? ~ Henry David Thoreau

Aurora, watchful in the reddening dawn, threw wide her crimson doors and rose-filled halls; the Stars took flight, in marshaled order set by Lucifer, who left his station last. ~ Ovid

Pythagoras edit

That was neither "vandalism" nor "trolling". Please stop misusing these words, as they account to an insult. The point is: You may illustrate some of Pythagoras' geometric or mathematical ideas by inserting relevant geometrical diagrams, but this here was *so totally so unrelated* ... Wikiquote is not the place to waste people's bandwidth by inserting totally arbitrary graphics into articles. Some people would call that spam. Please don't set out for an edit war. You may instead explain why diagrams of dots, baryon-decuplets etc. etc. "are clearly related to Pythagoras or his ideas" (your words, revert: 19:03, 7 May 2008). I'm actually easy to get along with, just please be nice and keep to the point. Thanks -- 11:26, 5 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
