Jessica Helfand Quotes

"Remarkably, studies of visual perception have found that two-dimensional images projected onto the retina only achieve full dimensionality as a result of our perception: we infer the third dimension of depth. Sadly, though, as the urgency to expedite all communicative transactions usurps out customary patterns of exchange, perception is accelerated as well. There does not seem to be a great deal of time left over to infer--or interpret, or imagine--much of anything at all. In the end, of course, there is nothing real about this at all, except for our propensity to let it happen."

Kristina Meister Quotes

"Boredom will eventually set in... and one day youll be standing still on an island, with no idea where to go, because all your bridges will have been burned.... The smaller you are, the larger and more terrifying the world. You should not be trying to reduce yourself so thoroughly."

Victor Klemperer Quotes

"Ich war noch nicht ein bißchen abgestumpft, ich war noch so ganz gewohnt, in einem Rechtsstaat zu leben, daß ich damals vieles für die tiefste Hölle hielt, was ich später höchstens für ihren Vorhof, für den Danteschen Limbo nahm. Immerhin: soviel schlimmer es auch kommen sollte, alles, was sich noch später an Gesinnung, an Tat und Sprache des Nazismus hinzufand, das zeichnet sich in seinen Ansätzen schon in diesen ersten Monaten ab."

Fabrizio De Andre Quotes

"Why do I write? Out of fear. Out of fear that the memory of the people I write about might go lost. Out of fear that the memory of myself might get lost. Or even just to be shielded by a story, to slip inside a story and stop being recognizable, controllable, subject to blackmail."

LA Jones Quotes

"People are universal."

Mark Owen Quotes

"The rule is, "When in doubt, load it out." Of course the more you carry, the greater a toll it takes on your body, the slower you move, the harder it is to react quickly to a threat."

David Bowick Quotes

"I was always of themindset that whatever will be, will be. We can only just try to control ourown lives, that because our lives are so hopelessly entangled in thechoices of others, we can never have full control over our destiny or fateor purpose or whatever you want to call it. The choices we make defineus, of course, but so do the choices of everyone around us whether weknow them or not. Instead of contemplating what-if scenarios, I alwaysjust tried to accept things."

Mary Barnett Gilson Quotes

"Mens minds must be free, and that means the minds of all, not the minds of a select few."
