“Somewhere I read Auden saying that all his life he felt that he was the youngest person in the room, which “has very seldom been the fact for the past forty years,” and I have felt kindly towards Auden ever since. I”

Edward L. Bernays
“For society, the interesting outcome of this situation is that progress seldom occurs through the abrupt expulsion by a group of its old ideas in favor of new ideas, but rather through the rearrangement of the thought of the individuals in these groups with respect to each other and with respect to the entire membership of society. It is precisely this interlapping of groups—the variety, the inconsistency of the average man’s mental, social and psychological commitments which makes possible the gradual change from one state of affairs or from one state of mind to another. Few people are life members of one group and of one group only. The ordinary person is a very temporary member of a great number of groups. This is one of the most powerful forces making for progress in society because it makes for receptivity and open-mindedness.”
Edward L. Bernays, Crystallizing Public Opinion

Yuval Noah Harari
“Occasionally, bands wandered outside their turf and explored new lands, whether due to natural calamities, violent conflicts, demographic pressures or the initiative of a charismatic leader. These wanderings were the engine of human worldwide expansion. If a forager band split once every forty years and its splinter group migrated to a new territory sixty miles to the east, the distance from East Africa to China would have been covered in about 10,000 years.”
Yuval Noah Harari, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

“Forty years later, I’m acutely conscious that it is in fact impossible for a self to change at the speed the world is changing whilst remaining true to a remotely recognizable self—that is, to remain oneself and yet remain in the world at its most immediate and be and feel oneself to be an active part of that world.”
Alexandra Pierce, Letters to Tiptree
