Welcome to the all new Quotations Page Forum, and my apologies for the sudden changeover.

We've switched to phpBB2 for the forum. You'll find most of the functions very similar to the old software, and there are some new features.

The biggest thing you'll notice is that you'll need to <a href="profile.php?mode=register">register again</a> for the new forum. Also, registration now requires a <b>valid email address</b>. You'll receive a message when you register, and must click the link in the message to complete your registration.

Be sure to read the <a href="faq.php">FAQ</a> and if you have further questions about the new forum, feel free to post them here or <a href="/mail.php3">contact us by email</a>.

This particular forum is for any discussion vaguely related to quotations. Enjoy!

"A pawn is the most important piece on the chessboard --to a pawn"
~Isaac Asimov

Once the game is over, the King and the pawn go back in the same box.
--Italian proverb

"A mature sense of historical-mindedness stimulates self-identity, enabling the individual to surmount, intellectually, his or her immediate environment and emancipating the individual, to some extent, from the pressures to conform to this year's vogues. He or she ceases to be a pawn of the social forces and their representatives."
-Carl G. Gustavson

Reductio ad absurdum, which Euclid loved so much, is one of a mathematician's finest weapons. It is a far finer gambit than any chess play: a chess player may offer the sacrifice of a pawn or even a piece, but a mathematician offers the game.
~Godfrey H. Hardy
