Eduardo Mendoza
“الواقع الذى يحيط بنا ليس سوى ستارة ملونة
وفى الجانب الاخر من هذه الستارة لا توجد حياة اخرى وانما هى الحياة نفسها فليس الغيب الا ذلك الجانب الاخر من الستارة وعندما ندقق النظر فى الستارة لا نرى الجانب الاخر الذى هو الشىء نفسه وعندما ندرك ان الواقع ليس سوى ظاهرة بصرية فاننا نتمكن من اجتياز هذه الستارة الملونة
وحين نجتاز تلك الستارة الملونة نجد انفسنا فى عالم اخر مماثل لهذا وفى ذلك العالم يوجد كذلك من ماتوا ومن لم يولدا بعد ولكننا لانراهم الان
لانهم مفصولون عنا بالستارة الملونة التى نخلط بينها وبين الواقع وما ان يتم اجتياز هذه الستارة فى احد الاتجاهات حتى يصبح من السهل جدا اجتيازها دوما فى الاتجاه نفسه وفى الاتجاه المعاكس ايضا”
Eduardo Mendoza, La ciudad de los prodigios

Albert Einstein
“The education of the individual, in addition to promoting his own innate abilities, would attempt to develop in him a sense of responsibility for his fellow men in place of the glorification of power and success in our present society.”
Albert Einstein, Essays in Humanism

Carl Sagan
“The business of scepticism is to be dangerous. Scepticism challenges established institutions. If we teach everybody, including, say, high school students, habits of sceptical thought, they will probably not restrict their scepticism to UFOs, aspirin commercials and 35,000-year-old channellees. Maybe they’ll start asking awkward questions about economic, or social, or political, or religious institutions. Perhaps they’ll challenge the opinions of those in power. Then where would we be?”
Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

Amir Alexander
“The Elements is arguably the most influential mathematical text in history.”
Amir Alexander, Infinitesimal: How a Dangerous Mathematical Theory Shaped the Modern World

Henry David Thoreau
“Dwell as near as possible to the channel in which your life flows.”
Henry David Thoreau
