D.W. Winnicott
“Artists are people driven by the tension between the desire to communicate and the desire to hide.”
Donald Woods Winnicott

Jed Rubenfeld
“The ways of happiness and meaning are not the same. To find happiness, a man need only live in the moment; he need only live for the moment. But if he wants meaning—the meaning of his dreams, his secrets, his life—a man must reinhabit his past, however dark, and live for the future, however uncertain. Thus nature dangles happiness and meaning before us all, insisting only that we choose between them.”
Jed Rubenfeld, The Interpretation of Murder

W.S. Gilbert
“To sit in solemn silence on a dull, dark dock
in a pestilential prison with a life-long lock
awaiting the sensation of a short, sharp shock
from a cheap and chippy chopper on a big, black block.”
W.S. Gilbert, The Mikado

David   Epstein
“We learn who we are in practice, not in theory.”
David Epstein, Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World

Neil Gaiman
“Each person who ever was or is or will be has a song. It isn't a song that anybody else wrote. It has its own melody, it has its own words. Very few people get to sing their song. Most of us fear that we cannot do it justice with our voices, or that our words are too foolish or too honest, or too odd. So people live their song instead.”
Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys
