Rationality Quotes: December 2010

Every month on the month, Less Wrong has a thread where we post Deep Wis­dom from the Masters. I saw that no­body did this yet for De­cem­ber for some rea­son, so I figured I could do it my­self.

* Please post all quotes sep­a­rately, so that they can be voted up/​down sep­a­rately. (If they are strongly re­lated, re­ply to your own com­ments. If strongly or­dered, then go ahead and post them to­gether.)

* “Do not quote your­self.”—Tiiba

* Do not quote com­ments/​posts on LW/​OB. That’s like shoot­ing fish in a bar­rel. :)

* No more than 5 quotes per per­son per monthly thread, please.
