Rationality quotes January 2012

Here’s the new thread for post­ing quotes, with the usual rules:

  • 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  • Do not quote your­self.

  • Do not quote com­ments/​posts on LW/​OB.

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