“What we need is often exactly what we already have.”
John-Paul Flintoff, How to Change the World

“The fact is that anything we do might be characterised as unhelpful, if only by people far away from ourselves, in time or space, who must deal with consequences that are hidden from us. Being aware of this, we are less likely to get carried away with messianic zeal, and that's no bad thing. In changing the world we can proceed with a degree of humility.”
John-Paul Flintoff, How to Change the World

“Good prose should be transparent, like a window pane.”
