Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

"When a book and a head collide and there is a hollow sound, is it always from the book?"

"To make brandy out of sparrows would soon destroy them."

"I once had a startling proof of how little honor it does a painter to delude animals with his paintings. My Robin mistook the keyhole of a chest for a fly, flew several times to catch it, and in doing so almost broke his head."

--Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
