I have two.

First and always:

"The pessimist complains about the wind, the optimist expects the wind to change, and the realist adjusts his sails."

^^ I can't tell you how true that is. I can apply that to each person I have ever known. And I can measure their success in life almost perfectly by it.

Second,

"The enemy of my enemy is my friend"

When all else fails... look for the weak-spot.

I didn't know this about Diderot. (from Wikipedia).

Varied and incessant as was Diderot's mental activity, it was not of a kind to bring him riches. He secured none of the posts that were occasionally given to needy men of letters; he could not even obtain that bare official recognition of merit which was implied by being chosen a member of the Académie française. When the time came for him to provide a dowry for his daughter, he saw no other alternative than to sell his library. When Catherine II of Russia heard of his straits, she commissioned an agent in Paris to buy the library, and then requested the philosopher to retain the books in Paris until she required them, and to constitute himself her librarian, with a yearly salary. In 1773 and 1774 Diderot spent some months at the empress's court at St Petersburg.

The surest sign that there is intelligent life out there, is that they haven't bothered to contact us yet.

I didn't know that. That's quite a sacrifice on behalf of his daughter. David Hume and Lao Tzu were also librarians. Any other worthy librarians that should join the list?
