"The worst mistake of first contact, made throughout history by individuals on both sides of every new encounter, has been the unfortunate habit of making assumptions. It often proved fatal." ~David Brin
I guess it could either mean the old saying "Don't judge a book by its cover," or you can just look at it as people make assumptions without educating themselves on the backstore or hardcore facts more...Whatever it may mean to the reader; It really sticks out to me. I'll for sure keep this in the back of the brain :) I love quotes. This one sticks out.
