Alan Wilson Watts
“You are a function of what the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is a function of what the whole ocean is doing.”
Alan Wilson Watts

Kurt Vonnegut
“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.”
Kurt Vonnegut

R. Buckminster Fuller
“I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process – an integral function of the universe.”
R. Buckminster Fuller

Kurt Vonnegut
“And on the subject of burning books: I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength or their powerful political connections or their great wealth, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and have refused to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles.

So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.”
Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

Aldous Huxley
“Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life. The only completely consistent people are the dead.”
Aldous Huxley, Do What You Will: Twelve Essays
