An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





No human being is innocent, but there is a class of innocent human actions called Games.


W. H. Auden (1907-1973, Anglo-American poet)


One of life's primal situations; the game of hide and seek. Oh, the delicious thrill of hiding while the others come looking for you, the delicious terror of being discovered, but what panic when, after a long search, the others abandon you! You mustn't hide too well. You mustn't be too good at the game. The player must never be bigger than the game itself.


Jean Baudrillard (French postmodern philosopher, writer)


Intelligence and war are games, perhaps the only meaningful games left. If any player becomes too proficient, the game is threatened with termination.


William S. Burroughs (1914-1997, American writer)


I recently learned something quite interesting about video games. Many young people have developed incredible hand, eye, and brain coordination in playing these games. The air force believes these kids will be our outstanding pilots should they fly our jets.


Ronald Reagan (1911-2004, American President (40th))
