Andrew Wiles gently smiles,
Does his thing, and voila!
Q.E.D., we agree,
And we all shout hurrah!
As he confirms what Fermat
Jotted down in that margin,
Which could've used some enlargin'.
~ Tom Lehrer in That's Mathematics (Fermat's Last Theorem proof published that day)

Have I been blind, have I been lost,
inside myself and my own mind;
hypnotized, mesmerized,
by what my eyes have seen?

~ Natalie Merchant (date of birth)

risk his very own precious skin
to make our Angelinia a free and peaceful land again?

  • 2 Zarbon 04:42, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
  • 0 Kalki 08:48, 18 October 2009 (UTC) I would rank this highly, but can find no source that would indicate this originates with Rapp.* 3 Kalki 22:33, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

  • 0 because it is unsourced. - InvisibleSun 23:07, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

No battle plan ever survives contact with the enemy. ~ Helmuth von Moltke the Elder

  • 2 Zarbon 04:42, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 22:33, 16 October 2008 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4, but would correct this from the paraphrase to:
No plan of operations extends with any certainty beyond the first contact with the main hostile force.
OR extend it further to:
The tactical result of an engagement forms the base for new strategic decisions because victory or defeat in a battle changes the situation to such a degree that no human acumen is able to see beyond the first battle. In this sense one should understand Napoleon's saying: "I have never had a plan of operations."
Therefore no plan of operations extends with any certainty beyond the first contact with the main hostile force.

  • 0 because it is unsourced. InvisibleSun 23:07, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Though the original suggestion was originally unsourced, and seems to be a long used and common paraphrase, the original statement has now been sourced, and is included as part of my rankings, above. ~ Kalki 14:58, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

A competent staff officer should work diligently, accomplish much, remain in the background, and be more than he seems. ~ Helmuth von Moltke the Elder

To talk to others who are unseen and far away is an experience which, before the telephone, occurred only in mythology. Gods, devils, and angels talked from the sky across the world, but not mere mortals. ~ Ithiel de Sola Pool

What has begun in this evening will not stay for a long time, and because you represent the forces of the world of labour, you, forces of the youth, your victory is inevitable. ~ François Mitterrand

Do not wait; the time will never be "just right." Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along. ~ Napoleon Hill

  • 3 Kalki 08:48, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

Strategy is a system of expedients; it is more than a mere scholarly discipline. It is the translation of knowledge to practical life, the improvement of the original leading thought in accordance with continually changing situations. ~ Helmuth von Moltke the Elder

  • 3 Kalki 08:48, 18 October 2009 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.
