Inspiring quotations for DF headquarter walls

Recommended Posts

No office can do without.

Quotes on the walls.

Could be at the entrance, or in the toilets.

This thread is for sharing your entrance and toilet quotes with DF.

I'll start with some random 2:

'When I woke up this morning my girlfriend asked me, "Did you sleep good?" I said "No, I made a few mistakes."'

- Steven Wright

'A seaman who has the time, always has the perfect weather.'

- my father

I bet others will come up with better ones...

A good one from Penny Arcade today, which I think captures the DF spirit fairly well. Even though Jerry once stole Tim's yo-yo and said very mean (and very incorrect) things about Brutal Legend, may this quote still bring encouragement:

"...these casual, a priori assertions of inevitable failure [are] nothing more than a gauze draped over your own pulsing terror. Every creative act is open war against The Way It Is. What you are saying when you make something is that the universe is not sufficient, and what it really needs is more you. And it does, actually; it does. Go look outside. You can’t tell me that we are done making the world."

The world needs more Double Fine!

Adventure games are not dead, they are merely resting.

"That is not dead which can eternal lie...

And with strange eons, even death may die."

I bet Lovecraft was thinking about adventure games when he wrote that!

I think this quote can be applied to many projects, game development being one of them.

"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea."

"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former." Unsourced by Albert Einstein.

And one extra for upcoming 2k38-crisis, I hope DFA is proof for both ;D
