“Mathematicians can be persnickety about logical niceties. We're the kind of people who think it's funny, when asked, "Do you want soup or salad with that?" to reply, "Yes.”
Jordan Ellenberg, How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking

Yegor Bugayenko
“All companies are built as hierarchies, no matter what that holacracy adepts are saying now. It's always a boss on the top and then people who report to him down to the lowest level. Staying on the lowest level is what I always try to avoid. Not only because I have some dignity, but mostly because I am lazy. The lower you are in the hierarchy, the more work you have to do and the less money you get for it. This is how the division of labor works, not only in the software industry.”
Yegor Bugayenko, Code Ahead: Volume 1

“Mathematics, mostly, is a communal enterprise, each advance the product of a huge network of minds working toward a common purpose, even if we accord special honor to the person who places the last stone in the arch.”
Jordan Ellenberg, How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking

Peter F. Drucker
“The oft-repeated quip, “I’m sorry to write you a long letter, as I did not have time to write a short one,” could be applied to meetings: “I’m sorry to imprison you in this long meeting, as I did not have time to prepare a short one.”
Peter F. Drucker, The Effective Executive: The Definitive Guide to Getting the Right Things Done

“A scientist can hardly encounter anything more desirable than, just as a work is completed, to have its foundation give way.”
Jordan Ellenberg, How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking
