Steve Jobs

Vera Nazarian
“Love is made up of three unconditional properties in equal measure:

1. Acceptance
2. Understanding
3. Appreciation

Remove any one of the three and the triangle falls apart.

Which, by the way, is something highly inadvisable. Think about it — do you really want to live in a world of only two dimensions?

So, for the love of a triangle, please keep love whole.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

"Yes?" said Foaly, daring to hope that a spark of Artemis remained.

Eoin Colfer, The Atlantis Complex

Alfred North Whitehead, The Concept of Nature: The Tarner Lectures Delivered in Trinity College, 11/1919

Robert G. Ingersoll, On the Gods and Other Essays

Dean Koontz
“Always, the eye sees more than the mind can comprehend, and we go through life self-blinded to much that lies before us. We want a simple world, but we live in a magnificently complex one, and rather than open ourselves to it, we perceive the world through filters that make it less daunting.”
Dean Koontz, Relentless

James Hollis
“The act of consciousness is central; otherwise we are overrun by the complexes. The hero in each of us is required to answer the call of individuation. We must turn away from the cacaphony of the outerworld to hear the inner voice. When we can dare to live its promptings, then we achieve personhood. We may become strangers to those who thought they knew us, but at least we are no longer strangers to ourselves.”
James Hollis, The Middle Passage: From Misery to Meaning in Midlife

Alfred North Whitehead

“Complex problems often have simple solutions.”

“I sat in a world of sorrow trying to figure things out. I couldn’t because the world isn’t supposed to be figured out. You’re not supposed to get it. You’re supposed to flow with it and things come or don’t. It’s that simple, but we think everything’s complex when it’s just sitting right in front of us.”
Dominic Riccitello

'SON of GOD' P.S.Jagadeesh Kumar
“Being humble is complex. To some, it is inferiority complex and to some, it is superiority complex”
Dr.P.S. Jagadeesh Kumar

“On the right is Sauce Poivrade, a sauce made from beef or venison stock and lots of pepper. It has a rough bite with a lingering and clear aftertaste. Poivrade comes from the French word poivre, which means "pepper." This heavy and strongly flavored peppercorn sauce gives the mild and light venison a sense of weighty volume, you see.
Then I took some of the sauce and added various berries to give it some tangy and refreshing sweetness, making the sauce on the left- Sauce Poivrade au Baie The berries I used are-"
"Blueberries, blackberries, and red currants. You also used black currant liqueur, red wine, blueberry vinegar and raspberry jam. Correct?"
"Amazing! You got them all. Not surprising, I guess, considering it's you."
But that sauce is not nearly as simple as it sounds! It uses liqueur, wine, vinegar, jam and raw fruit... five different forms of fruit actually, all painstakingly and precisely added together. It's what gives the sauce such a deep and complex flavor.
But make even the tiniest mistake and the flavor will get muddled or overly bitter! Keeping everything in correct proportion is a tricky balancing act! It can't be done without a full and nuanced knowledge of all of the particular traits and compatibilities of each individual ingredient!
It is a superhuman dish only someone like Eishi Tsukasa's skill and knowledge could create.
With the two different sauces, he has beautifully expressed both the delicate elegance and the untamed wildness of a deer!

Yuto Tsukuda, 食戟のソーマ 20 [Shokugeki no Souma 20]

“She's beautiful, but I don't say she's easy to know."

Carla Laureano
“Bread shouldn't be some sort of bland, spongy starch that you use to push down your food. When it's done right, it's as complex as wine- the pleasantly sour flavor of well-fermented dough, the nutty quality of freshly ground wheat flour, the bitter caramel notes from the crust. Haven't you ever wondered why the Bible says Jesus is the bread of life? Bread was once worthy of that metaphor. Somehow I don't think He would like to be compared to Wonder Bread.”
Carla Laureano, Brunch at Bittersweet Café

Awdhesh Singh
“When truths are frozen, Beliefs are born. Beliefs are not the same as truths just like a picture of a man is not the same as the man himself. Hence,belief does not represent reality which is complex and even changing like a living being.”
Awdhesh Singh, Myths are Real, Reality is a Myth
