Chip Kidd Quotes

"I often get asked, Is the book dead? It hasnt happened yet. Its different than music. Music was always meant to be pure sound - it started out as pure sound and now its pure sound again. But books started out as things. Words on paper began as words on paper. The paperback book is the best technology to deliver that information to you."

"Learning is retarded in conditions of high anxiety and low acceptance. For most tasks, people have the intellectual knowledge to perform well; they just have a hard time acting on what they know."

Simon Morden Quotes

"People like us, we think differently, dont we? We are different. We do all the things that others do. But when it comes down to it, we dont need anyone else. Were happy doing what we do and having obligation interferes with that. And sometimes I think we dont even need ourselves. Whats most important is to find out whether were right or not."

Quotes About Exponential

"By the 1980s and 1990s, Moores Law had emerged as the underlying assumption that governed almost everything in the Valley, from technology to business, education, and even culture. The "law" said the number of transistors would double every couple of years. It dictated that nothing stays the same for more than a moment; no technology is safe from its successor; costs fall and computing power increases not at a constant rate but exponentially: If youre not running on what became known as " Internet time," youre falling behind." - Author: John Markoff

Quotes About Easily Forgotten

"May I recommend three Maryland beaten biscuits, with water, for your breakfast? They are hard as a haul-seiners conscience and dry as a dredgers tongue, and they sit for hours in your morning stomach like ballast on a tender ships keel. They cost little, are easily and crumblessly carried in your pockets, and if forgotten and gone stale, are neither harder nor less palatable than when fresh. Whats more, eaten first thing in the morning and followed by a cigar, they put a crabbermans thirst on you, such that all the water in a deep neap tide cant quench --- and none, I think, denies the charms of water on the bowels of morning?" - Author: John Barth

Lucy looked pointedly at Thad, Blaze, and Angelo.Erins head snapped in Joshs direction. "JOSH!" she screeched, accidentally letting loose a snap of electricity." - Author: Christine James

Quotes About Christian Providence

"Humanism is not science, but religion - the post-Christian faith that humans can make a world better than any in which they have so far lived. In pre-Christian Europe is was taken for granted that the future would be like the past. Knowledge and invention might advance, but ethics would remain much the same. History was a series of cycles, with no overall meaning. Against this pagan view, Christians understood history as a story of sin and redemption. Humanism is the transformation of this Christian doctrine of salvation into a project of universal human emancipation. The idea of progress is a secular version of the Christian belief in providence. That is why among the ancient pagans it was unknown." - Author: John Nicholas Gray

Quotes About How He Makes You Happy

"Boundaries define us. They define what is me and what is not me. A boundary shows me where i end and someone else begins, leading me to a sense of ownership. Knowing what I am to own and take responsibility for gives me freedom. Taking responsibility for my life opens up many different options. Boundaries help us keep the good in and the bad out. Setting boundaries inevitably involves taking responsibility for your choices. You are the one who makes them. You are the one who must live with their consequences. And you are the one who may be keeping yourself from making the choices you could be happy with. We must own our own thoughts and clarify distorted thinking." - Author: Henry Cloud

Quotes About Plan Of God

"God is not an alternative to science as an explanation, he is not to be understood merely as a God of the gaps, he is the ground of all explanation: it is his existence which gives rise to the very possibility of explanation, scientific or otherwise. It is important to stress this because influential authors such as Richard Dawkins will insist on conceiving of God as an explanatory alternative to science – an idea that is nowhere to be found in theological reflection of any depth. Dawkins is therefore tilting at a windmill - dismissing a concept of God that no serious thinker believes in anyway. Such activity is not necessarily to be regarded as a mark of intellectual sophistication." - Author: John C. Lennox
