“Creativity is what happens when a mind encounters an obstacle. It’s the human process of finding a way through, over, around, or beneath. No obstacle, no creativity.”
Ben Orlin, Math with Bad Drawings

“It is a funny paradox of design: utility breeds beauty. There is elegance in efficiency, a visual pleasure in things that just barely work.”
Ben Orlin, Math with Bad Drawings

“Reality is a lovely starting point, but the coolest destinations lie far beyond it.”
Ben Orlin, Math with Bad Drawings

“Reality is a lovely starting point, but the coolest destinations lie far beyond it.”
Ben Orlin, Math with Bad Drawings

“If you ditch the rulebook, you lose the grace. Even the wacky, avant-garde, convention-defying arts—experimental film, expressionist painting, professional wrestling—draw their power from playing against the limitations of the chosen medium.”
Ben Orlin, Math with Bad Drawings

“Creativity is what happens when a mind encounters an obstacle. It’s the human process of finding a way through, over, around, or beneath. No obstacle, no creativity.”
Ben Orlin, Math with Bad Drawings

“The secret to solving big problems, I learned, is knowing which little problems to ignore.”
David Litt, Thanks, Obama: My Hopey, Changey White House Years
