he llegado al completísimo compendio de @MRDV "Frases para la reflexión": http://www.finect.com/blogs-financieros/MRDV/frases_para_la_reflexion

así que he tirado de mis "notas" en el móvil y he encontrado unas cuantas que he ido guardando a lo largo del tiempo, de naturaleza variada, allá van (algunas traducciones son de cosecha propia, en esos casos copio el original a continuación):

"la disciplina es la conquista de lo imposible por la obstinada repetición de lo posible"; "a través de la disciplina, uno se convierte en su propio destino" (Frédéric Gros).

"El mayor enemigo de la verdad es la fe ciega en la autoridad" (Albert Einstein). "A foolish faith in authority is the worst enemy of the truth".
