“We are surrounded by the absurd excess of the universe. By meaningless bulk, vastness without size, power without consequence. The stubborn iteration that is present without being felt. Nothing the spirit can marry. Merely phenomenon and its physics. An endless, endless of going on. No habitat where the brain can recognize itself. No pertinence for the heart. Helpless duplication.”
Jack Gilbert, Collected Poems

“Honesty, no one is entirely honest. They try to be duplicitous. The pressure of the formal self-critical exercise. They are protecting themselves because they don't want to acknowledge that the failure is down to their own mistakes. The self-serving attributes, I see.

Rabin Paudel

“As developers, we often react badly when we see duplication. We worry about the extra cost of managing duplicate copies of information, and are even more concerned if this data diverges.

Sam Newman, Monolith to Microservices: Sustaining Productivity While Detangling the System

“We must remember that SYSTEMS are duplicatable and PEOPLE are not. I cannot hope to build an army of followers if they must be like me. On the other hand, if they have a simple method to follow or a third-party tool to wield, then the chances of duplication and growth in your organization goes up exponentially.”
Chris J. Gregas

“And it occurred to me that it had been, all along, about copies, nothing else. All of it, this entire flaming universe was about copying itself before it died, that’s all it was. And we were there in the middle of it, as blind to the machinery inside of us as we were deaf to the machinery of galaxies swirling in circles above us.”
Susan Neville, The Town of Whispering Dolls: Stories
