“Being in nature refreshes us by ... allowing us to surrender to involuntary attention: the effortless and often enjoyable noticing of sensory stimuli in our environment.”
Jennifer Ackerman

“قد يبدو اكتشاف مصدر الصوت وتفسيره عملا سهلا، لكنّه عمل معقد جدا؛ فعندما نسمع شخصا ما ينادينا باسمنا ونتجه نحو الصوت، فنحن نعول على قدرة دماغنا على حساب الاتجاه من الفارق الزمني بين الأذنين؛ وهو الفرق في الزمن الذي يستغرقه الصوت للوصول إلى أذنينا.”
Jennifer Ackerman, Sex Sleep Eat Drink Dream: A Day in the Life of Your Body

“لقد تسبب توماس أديسون، أكثر من أي شخص آخر، بتراجع الظلام ونقص الأحلام.”
