Quotes by Steven Levy  (?)

“All good teachers will tell you that the most important quality they bring to their teaching is their love for the children. But what does that mean? It means that before we can teach them, we need to delight in them. Someone once said that children need one thing in order to succeed in life: someone who is crazy about them. We need to find a way to delight in all our students. We may be the only one in their lives to do so. We need to look for the best, expect the best, find something in each child that we can truly treasure.... If children recognize that we have seen their genius, who they really are, they will have the confidence and resilience to take risks in learning. I am convinced that many learning and social difficulties would disappear if we learned to see the genius in each child and then created a learning environment that encourages it to develop.”
Steven Levy

“Systems are organic, living creations: if people stop working on them and improving them, they die.”
Steven Levy, Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution

“We designed Google to be the kind of place where the kind of people we wanted to work here would work for free.
- Urs Hölzle”
Steven Levy, In the Plex: How Google Thinks, Works, and Shapes Our Lives
