If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night…

CALVIN: If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently.
HOBBES: How so?
CALVIN: Well, when you look into infinity, you realize that there are more important things than what people do all day.
HOBBES: We spent our day looking under rocks in the creek.
CALVIN: I mean other people.

Homework is bad for self-esteem

Hobbes: Aren’t you supposed to be doing homework now?
Calvin: I quit doing homework. Homework is bad for my self-esteem.
Hobbes: It is?
Calvin: Sure! It sends the message that I don’t know enough! All that emphasis on right answers makes me feel bad when I get them wrong. So instead of trying to learn, I’m just concentrating on liking myself the way I am.
Hobbes: Your self-esteem is enhanced by remaining an ignoramus?
Calvin: Please! Let’s call it “informationally impaired.”
