Randall Munroe Quotes

Randall Munroe Quote: “There are so many adventures that you miss because you’re waiting to think of a plan. To find them, look for tiny interesting choices. And remember that you are always making up the future as you go.”
Randall Munroe Quote: “Correlation doesn’t imply causation, but it does waggle its eyebrows suggestively and gesture furtively while mouthing ‘look over there.’”
Randall Munroe Quote: “You don’t become great by trying to be great. You become great by wanting to do something, and then doing it so hard that you become great in the process.”
Randall Munroe Quote: “But I’ve never seen the Icarus story as a lesson about the limitations of humans. I see it as a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.”

Randall Munroe Quote: “Take wrong turns. Talk to strangers. Open unmarked doors. And if you see a group of people in a field, go find out what they are doing. Do things without always knowing how they’ll turn out.”
Randall Munroe Quote: “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can make me think I deserved it.”

Randall Munroe Quote: “I think the really cool and compelling thing about math and physics is that it opens up entry to all these hypotheticals – or at least, it gives you the language to talk about them. But at the same time, if a scenario is completely disconnected from reality, it’s not all that interesting.”
Randall Munroe Quote: “The explosion would be just the right size to maximize the amount of paperwork your lab would face. If the explosion were smaller, you could potentially cover it up. If it were larger, there would be no one left in the city to submit paperwork to.”
Randall Munroe Quote: “Our brains have just one scale, and we resize our experiences to fit.”
Randall Munroe Quote: “I learned very early on in life that not everyone wants to hear every fact in the world, even if you want to tell them everything you’ve ever read.”
Randall Munroe Quote: “Space is about 100 kilometers away. That’s far away – I wouldn’t want to climb a ladder to get there – but it isn’t that far away.

Randall Munroe Quote: “Man, Farmville is so huge! Do you realize its the second-biggest browser-based social-networking-centered farming game in the world?”
Randall Munroe Quote: “Google owns YouTube, and recently, I drew a comic about an idea for a YouTube feature – which they actually took seriously and implemented. So I’m thinking that maybe we’ll have a future where Google is ‘xkcd.’”

Randall Munroe Quote: “High up in the North in the land called Svithjod, there stands a rock. It is a hundred miles high and a hundred miles wide. Once every thousand years a little bird comes to this rock to sharpen its beak. When the rock has thus been worn away, then a single day of eternity will have gone by. – Hendrik Willem Van Loon.”
Randall Munroe Quote: “News networks giving a greater voice to viewers because the social web is so popular are like a chef on the Titanic who, seeing the looming iceberg and fleeing customers, figures ice is the future and starts making snow cones.”

Noticing when the stoplights are in sync, or calculating the length of your strides between floor tiles – normal people notice that kind of stuff, but a certain kind of person will do some calculations.”
Randall Munroe Quote: “Once I got married, I started working from an office. I found that having somewhere to go that isn’t my house is mentally helpful: ‘This is the place where I answer email and write blog posts,’ and ’over there is the place where I do the dishes.”

Do not build the seventh row.”
