Ram Dass
“We're all just walking each other home.”
Ram Dass

Ginger Strand
“The GE press release went to the papers the very next day: “Scientists of the General Electric Company, flying an airplane over Greylock Mountain in western Massachusetts yesterday, conducted experiments with a cloud three miles long, and were successful in transforming the cloud into snow.”
Ginger Strand, The Brothers Vonnegut: Science and Fiction in the House of Magic

Steven Pinker
“We live in an era of social science, and have become accustomed to understanding the social world in terms of “forces,” “pressures,” “processes,” and “developments.” It is easy to forget that those “forces” are statistical summaries of the deeds of millions of men and women who act on their beliefs in pursuit of their desires. The habit of submerging the individual into abstractions can lead not only to bad science (it’s not as if the “social forces” obeyed Newton’s laws) but to dehumanization.”
Steven Pinker, The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person's Guide to Writing in the 21st Century

John Milton
“Such sweet compulsion doth in music lie.”
John Milton, The Complete Poetry

Richard Sennett
“Issac Stern rule: the better your technique, the more impossible your standards.”
Richard Sennett, The Craftsman
