Umberto Eco
“The order that our mind imagines is like a net, or like a ladder, built to attain something. But afterward you must throw the ladder away, because you discover that, even if it was useful, it was meaningless.”
Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose

Edward Hopper
“No amount of skillful invention can replace the essential element of imagination.”
Edward Hopper

Edward Hopper
“More of me comes out when I improvise.”
Edward Hopper

H. Richard Niebuhr
“Men are generally right in what they affirm and wrong in what they deny. What we deny is generally something that lies outside our experience, and about which we can therefore say nothing.”
H. Richard Niebuhr, Christ and Culture

Konstantin Stanislavski
“It is not enough to discover the secret of a play, its thought and feelings—the actor must be able to convert them into living terms.”
Konstantin Stanislavski, Creating A Role

“Ars est celaree artem.”
Ovidio, The Art of Love

Richard P. Feynman
“A philosopher once said 'It is necessary for the very existence of science that the same conditions always produce the same results'. Well, they do not. You set up the circumstances, with the same conditions every time, and you cannot predict behind which hole you will see the electron. Yet science goes on in spite of it - although the same conditions do not always produce the same results. <...> What is necessary 'for the very existence of science', and what the characteristics of nature are, are not to be determined by pompous preconditions, they are determined always by the material with which we work, by nature herself. We look, and we see what we find, and we cannot say ahead of time successfully what it is going to look like. <...> If science is to progress, what we need is the ability to experiment, honesty in reporting results - the results must be reported without somebody saying what they would like the results to have been - and finally - an important thing - the intelligence to interpret the results.”
Richard Feynman, The Character of Physical Law

Woodrow Wilson
“We have not given science too big a place in our education, but we have made a perilous mistake in giving it too great a preponderance in method in every other branch of study.”
Woodrow Wilson

Friedrich Nietzsche
“It is true: we love life, not because we are used to living but because we are used to loving.
There is always a certain madness in love. But also there is always a certain method in madness.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

“Tea first came to Japan in the sixth century by way of Japanese Buddhist monks, scholars, warriors, and merchants who traveled to China and brought back tea pressed into bricks. It was not until 1911, during the Song dynasty, that the Japanese Buddhist priest Eisai (also known as Yosai) carried home from China fine-quality tea seeds and the method for making matcha (powdered green tea). The tea seeds were cultivated on the grounds of several Kyoto temples and later in such areas as the Uji district just south of Kyoto.
Following the Chinese traditional method, Japanese Zen monks would steam, dry, then grind the tiny green tea leaves into a fine powder and whip it with a bamboo whisk in boiling water to create a thick medicinal drink to stimulate the senses during long periods of meditation.”
Victoria Abbott Riccardi, Untangling My Chopsticks: A Culinary Sojourn in Kyoto

Bernard J.F. Lonergan
“There are ever further questions for intelligence pushing up towards a fuller understanding and ever further doubts urging us to a fuller truth.”
Bernard J.F. Lonergan

Steven Magee
“Observe, understand and publish.”
Steven Magee

Jordan Ellenberg
“A statistically significant finding gives you a clue, suggesting a promising place to focus your research energy. The significance test is the detective, not the judge. <...> If a result is novel and important, other scientists in other laboratories ought to test and retest the phenomenon and its variants, trying to figure out whether the result was a one-time fluke or whether it truly meets the Fisherian standard of “rarely fails.” That’s what scientists call replication; if an effect can’t be replicated, despite repeated trials, science backs apologetically away. The replication process is supposed to be science’s immune system, swarming over newly introduced objects and killing the ones that don’t belong.”
Jordan Ellenberg, How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking

“Coach Wooden’s philosophy is for players and students to improve a little every day and make perfection the goal. His method for improving conditioning included one painful demand—each player, when reaching the point of exhaustion, was to push himself beyond. When this is done every day, top condition will be attained over time.”
Swen Nater, You Haven't Taught Until They Have Learned: John Wooden's Teaching Principles and Practices

Kate  Stewart
“My mother stands her ground. "Silly man, you're just the husband, I created that human. I have every right to her, as much as you.”

“That what I saw in him wasn't a result of blind faith, but a truth he couldn't see for himself.”

John C. Holt
“Do they use the method because they are bright, or is it the use of the method that makes them bright?”
John Holt, How Children Learn

“A lack of understanding of the theory leaves you unable to differentiate between a necessary aspect of a method and an arbitrary one.”
John Yorke

Richie Norton
“What’s the difference between mindset and method?

Akşit Göktürk
“Canlı, esnek, devingen, değişken öğelerden oluşan yazın dili, düzanlamlar doğrultusunda bir kalıplaşmaya, geleneksel bir kurallaşmaya zorlandığı an ölür. Gerçekte yazın metinlerinin, salt dilbilimsel temelli bilgisayar çevirisine elverişsizliği de, bu özelliklerinin doğal bir sonucudur.”
Akşit Göktürk, Çeviri: Dillerin Dili

Akşit Göktürk
“Gerçekte yazın okuru, metin içinde, yaratıcı bir düşgücünün katkısıyla yol alır anlama doğru. Metnin anlamını kendisi yaratır bir bakıma, hazır bulmaz. Wittgenstein'ın deyimiyle, kurallarını kendi içinde taşıyan bir ''dil oyunu'' nun sürdürülmesini gerektirir yazın metni, dolayısıyla da yerleşik algı alışkalıklarımız çerçevesinde yorumlanamaz.”
Akşit Göktürk, Çeviri: Dillerin Dili

“How frustrated the impatient carpenter, whose tools have legs and free will.”

Loren Weisman
“Is your messaging, marketing and methodology both moral and transparent?”
Loren Weisman

G.K. Chesterton
“For St George knew very well what all real soldiers know; that the only way to be even approximately likely to kill a dragon is to give the dragon a heavy chance of killing you. And this method, which is the only one, is much too unpleasant to be talked about.”
G.K. Chesterton, The Glass Walking Stick

“But my method nonetheless embodies a thesis: the details and the counter-narratives revealed in this genetic micro-focus constitute an attack on ‘semperidentity’, on ‘always-sameness’. Such continuous identity is supposed to lie—as ideologies of mythic monologic thinking would have us believe—archetypally within us all. The amplificatory character of Joyce’s writing, as traced in this study, reflects the comic theme of an idealized popular resurrection.”
Finn Fordham, Lots of Fun at Finnegans Wake: Unravelling Universals

Rick Rubin
“The laws of math and science are different from the rules we are looking at here. Those laws describe precise relationships in the physical world, which we know to be true by testing them against the world itself.

The rules artists learn are different. They are assumptions, not absolutes. They describe a goal or method for short-term or long-term results. They
are there to be tested. And they are only of value as long as they are helpful. They are not laws of nature.”
Rick Rubin, The Creative Act: A Way of Being

Judith Rich Harris
“Someone who thinks up a new theory is the last person who should be trusted with the job of testing it. A new theory should be tested by independent researchers who aren’t cronies of the theorist and who don’t have an axe to grind. It’s division of labor again: proposing theories and doing research to test them are jobs that should be carried out by different entities.

“A good theory should go in advance of the evidence,” the evolutionary psychologist Geoffrey Miller said in a recent interview. “It should stick its neck out and say, this is how I think the world is, and leave it to other people to test it.”

Making a virtue of necessity, I will leave it to other people to test my theory.”
Judith Rich Harris, No Two Alike: Human Nature and Human Individuality

“The aim defines the method.”
Scott Hahn & Benjamin Wiker

“The shortest method to keep people away from Justice and Truth is to starve them.”
Jeyhun Aliyev Silo, To Be Tried As A Jew
