If you're so arrogant as to call yourself an artist, you can't ask for anything more than that." - Jay Baruchel

"These are two different exercises. One of them is, "You don't know and I know, so just shut up and listen," and the other one is, you're curious and you're learning, and I have a way where you can learn this so you'll know it as well. And when you know it, and know why you know it, then you don't have to reference me ever again because you take ownership of the knowledge, and you can then share it with someone else." - Neil Degrasse Tyson
