Rationality Quotes Thread November 2015

Another month, an­other ra­tio­nal­ity quotes thread. The rules are:

  • Please post all quotes sep­a­rately, so that they can be up­voted or down­voted 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  • Do not quote your­self.

  • Do not quote from Less Wrong it­self, HPMoR, Eliezer Yud­kowsky, or Robin Han­son. If you’d like to re­vive an old quote from one of those sources, please do so here.

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

  • Provide suffi­cient in­for­ma­tion (URL, ti­tle, date, page num­ber, etc.) to en­able a reader to find the place where you read the quote, or its origi­nal source if available. Do not quote with only a name.
