“Homo sapiens, it turns out, is the most cooperative species on the planet, outperforming ants, hyenas, and even the naked mole-rat when it comes to living alongside those who are beyond our next of kin.”
Kate Raworth, Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist

Will Durant
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.”
Will Durant

Hans Rosling
“human beings have a strong dramatic instinct toward binary thinking, a basic urge to divide things into two distinct groups,”
Hans Rosling, Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About The World - And Why Things Are Better Than You Think

“the new wave of artificial intelligence does not actually bring us intelligence but instead a critical component of intelligence—prediction.”
ajay agrawal, Prediction Machines: The Simple Economics of Artificial Intelligence

Kate Raworth
“It is an economic era that has come to be known as the Great Acceleration, thanks to its extraordinary surge in human activity. Between 1950 and 2010, the global population almost trebled in size, and real World GDP increased sevenfold. Worldwide, freshwater use more than trebled, energy use increased fourfold, and fertiliser use rose over tenfold.”
Kate Raworth, Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist
