Nassim Nicholas Taleb
“This is the tragedy of modernity: as with neurotically overprotective parents, those trying to help are often hurting us the most.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Antifragile: Things That Gain From Disorder

Leonardo da Vinci
“Art is never finished, only abandoned.”
Leonardo da Vinci

“One moment he's telling you why convexity leads to philostochasticity and the next he's explaining why he doesn't eat papayas. For the record, he avoids all fruits without a Greek or Hebrew name because his ancestors would not have eaten them.”

“Antifragility is beyond resilience or robustness. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better. This property is behind everything that has changed with time: evolution, culture, ideas, revolutions, political systems, technological innovation, cultural and economic success, corporate survival, good recipes (say, chicken soup or steak tartare with a drop of cognac), the rise of cities, cultures, legal systems, equatorial forests, bacterial resistance … even our own existence as a species on this planet.”
