Memorable quotes...

When I started with U.S.Robotics, before it was acquired by 3Com, my manager had a poster of quotes up on his office wall. To this day I can still remember going in and seeing it, even if I can only remember one:
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world. The unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
I was reminded of this quote when I ran across this old Apple ad. I had forgotten that Apple had run this. It's old enough that they still had the multicolored Apple logo.

Sometimes, perhaps being a little more unreasonable is an option - as long as your doing it to nudge things in a better direction.
