I see "NOTHING" written in stone. But a good philosophical point. It brings to mind Shelley's poem "Ozymandias" : "My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works,ye mighty, and despair ... The poem describes the broken stone statue with its inscription and ends "Round the decay of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare the lone and level sands stretch far away" . OK - you brought out the philosopher in me Nothing is written in stone.

I think it is a way of saying there are no absolutes. Of course it goes without saying, one cannot be absolutely sure about that either.

In philosophy and logic, the liar's paradox (ψευδόμενος λόγος—in Ancient Greek) is the statement "this sentence is false." Trying to assign to this statement a classical binary truth value leads to a contradiction.
If "This sentence is false." is true, then the sentence is false, but then if "This sentence is false." is false, then the sentence is true, and so on.
Look here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liar_paradox

The paradox with a similar inscription on the wall appears in the book by Martin Gardner.
Here is it: http://www.amazon.com/Aha-Gotcha-Paradoxes-Puzzle-Delight/dp/0716713616

This must be outside the new-ish Northshire bookstore on Broadway. They have the same thing outside the original Manchester, VT store.

Lol, once after reading a sign posted on the door of a convenience store my son quipped, " No shirt... No shoes... No service.... Then why get all dressed up to go in there?"

It made me think of the line... "truly for some men nothing is written unless they write it" said by Omar Sharif in Lawrence of Arabia.
