Jim Henson // "The most sophisticated people I know...inside they are all children."
Anne Frank // "What is done cannot be undone, but one can prevent it happening again."
Stephen Fry // "We are not nouns, we are verbs. I am not a thing...an actor, a writer...I am a person who does things...I write, I act...and I never know what I'm going to do next. I think you can be imprisoned if you think of yourself as a noun."
Elon Musk // "I’m not trying to be anyone’s savior. I’m just trying to think about the future and not be sad."
Zadie Smith // "If novelists know anything it’s that individual citizens are internally plural: they have within them the full range of behavioral possibilities. They are like complex musical scores from which certain melodies can be teased out and others ignored or suppressed, depending, at least in part, on who is doing the conducting. At this moment, all over the world—and most recently in America—the conductors standing in front of this human orchestra have only the meanest and most banal melodies in mind... But there is no place on earth where they have not been played at one time or another. Those of us who remember...a finer music must try now to play it, and encourage others, if we can, to sing along."
Alan Moore // "What does fighting crime mean, exactly? Does it mean upholding the law when a woman shoplifts to feed her children, or does it mean struggling to uncover the ones who, quite legally, have brought about her poverty?"
Bruce Lee // "When one has reached maturity...one will have a formless form. It is like ice dissolving into water. When one has no form, one can be all forms; when one has no style, he can fit in with any style."
Aldous Huxley // "It's dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly... Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them...throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you...trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That's why you must walk so lightly...on tiptoes and no luggage...completely unencumbered."
Le Corbusier // "You employ stone, wood and concrete, and with these materials you build houses and palaces. That is construction... But suddenly you touch my heart, you do me good, I am happy and I say: This is beautiful. That is Architecture. Art enters in."
