Daniel C. Dennett
“Our fundamental tactic of self-protection, self-control, and self-definition is not spinning webs or building dams, but telling stories, and more particularly connecting and controlling the story we tell others - and ourselves - about who we are.”
Daniel C. Dennett, Consciousness Explained

P.G. Wodehouse
“Presently, the cow’s audience-appeal began to wane. It was a fine cow, as cows go, but, like so many cows, it lacked sustained dramatic interest.”
P.G. Wodehouse, Blandings Castle

“You are quite right in saying that the influence of poetry and literature appears at this moment diminishing rather than increasing. The newspapers have a good deal to do with this. The Times, which has much improved again, is a world, and people who read it daily hardly feel the necessity for reading a book; yet reading a book—a good book—is a discipline such as no reading of even good newspapers can ever give. But literature has in itself such powers of attraction that I am not over anxious about it.”
Mathew Arnold

David Deutsch
“We never know any data before interpreting it through theories. All observations are, as Popper put it, theory-laden,* and hence fallible, as all our theories are. Consider”
David Deutsch, The Beginning of Infinity: Explanations That Transform the World

Edith Hall
“Aristotle was convinced that most people get most of their pleasure from learning things and wondering about and at the world.”
Edith Hall, Aristotle's Way: How Ancient Wisdom Can Change Your Life
