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.”

Konstantin Stanislavski

Konstantin Stanislavski, Creating a Role

Mary Daly
“The method that is required is not one of correlation but of liberation. Even the term “method” must be reinterpreted and in fact wrenched out of its usual semantic field, for the emerging creativity in women is by no means a merely cerebral process. In order to understand the implications of this process it is necessary to grasp the fundamental fact that women have had the power of naming stolen from us. We have not been free to use our power to name ourselves, the world or God. The old naming was not the product of dialogue- a fact inadvertently admitted in the genesis story of Adam’s naming the animals and the women. Women are now realizing that the universal imposing of names by men has been false because partial. That is, inadequate words have been taken as adequate.”
Mary Daly, Beyond God the Father: Toward a Philosophy of Women's Liberation

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

Mahatma Gandhi
“If I want to deprive you of your watch, I shall certainly have to fight for it; if I want to buy your watch, I shall have to pay for it; and if I want a gift, I shall have to plead for it; and, according to the means I employ, the watch is stolen property, my own property, or a donation. Thus we see three different results from three different means. Will you still say that the means do not matter?”
Mahatma Gandhi, Non-Violent Resistance

René Descartes
“...we ought also to consider as false all that is doubtful.”
René Descartes, Principles of Philosophy

S.R. Crawford
“A fortress doesn’t fall unless its towers are weakened.”

“It is the method that makes it madness.”
Marty Rubin

“It is the method behind the madness that makes it madness.”
Marty Rubin

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

“As a rule children of tough and imperious parents sticking to authoritarian method of upbringing have a victim complex”
Sunday Adelaja

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

Dada Bhagwan
“All these are [relative] tools (sadhan) and that too, they are not subtle (sthool). One will have to go into the subtle (sookshma) [state]. What would happen if the tools themselves are believed to be the ultimate goal (sadhya)?”
Dada Bhagwan, The Science of Money

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

“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

“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

“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

“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
