Friedrich Nietzsche
“Art is the proper task of life. ”
Friedrich Nietzsche

Freeman Dyson
“Science is my territory, but science fiction is the landscape of my dreams.”
Freeman John Dyson, Imagined Worlds

“If an important decision is to be made, they [the Persians] discuss the question when they are drunk, and the following day the master of the house where the discussion was held submits their decision for reconsideration when they are sober. If they still approve it, it is adopted; if not, it is abandoned. Conversely, any decision they make when they are sober, is reconsidered afterwards when they are drunk.”

Freeman Dyson
“The question that will decide our destiny is not whether we shall expand into space. It is: shall we be one species or a million? A million species will not exhaust the ecological niches that are awaiting the arrival of intelligence.”
freeman dyson

Marcel Proust
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
Marcel Proust
