“How do fields express their principles? Physicists use terms like photons, electrons, quarks, quantum wave functions, relativity, and energy conservation. Astronomers use terms like planets, stars, galaxies, Hubble shift, and black holes. Thermodynamicists use terms like entropy, first law, second law, and Carnot cycle. Biologists use terms like phylogeny, ontology, DNA, and enzymes. Each of these terms can be considered to be the thread of a story. The principles of a field are actually a set of interwoven stories about the structure and behavior of field elements, the fabric of the multiverse.”
Peter J. Denning

“An excessive emphasis on invention, rather than on adoption, is a major factor in the low success rate of innovation.
The diagram of figure 1.1 compares invention and innovation as practices.”
Peter J. Denning, The Innovator's Way: Essential Practices for Successful Innovation
