Do you not see that nature is clamouring for two things only, a body free from pain, a mind released from worry and fear for the enjoyment of pleasurable sensations?


De Rerum Natura (The Nature of Things, or On the Nature of the Universe), by Lucretius.

In The Garden of Beasts

History teaches us that establishments tend to fall into ranks behind the commander, and not the other way around. It isn’t necessary to replace the people doing their jobs. They turn into loyal servants of the new regime.

Think of and look at your work as though it were done by your enemy. If you look at it to admire it, you are lost.


— Samuel Butler

“You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch!”
— Edgar Mitchell, Apollo Astronaut

All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you; the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse, and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.

Hemingway in “A Letter from Cuba”

“Real intelligence is a creative use of knowledge, not merely an accumulation of facts. The slow thinker who can finally come up with an idea of his own is more important to the world than a walking encyclopedia who hasn’t learned how to use this information productively.”

We’re always believing something, even if we think we’re not. And what we believe determines what we can see. - William James

So Penelope took the hand of Odysseus,
not to hold him back but to impress
this peace on his memory: 

From this point on, the silence through which you move
is my voice pursuing you.


– Louise Glück

One of the risks of being quiet is that other people can fill your silence with their own interpretation: You’re bored. You’re depressed. You’re shy. You’re stuck up. You’re judgmental. When others can’t read us, they write their own story—not always one we choose or that’s true to who we are. — Sophia Dembling

Não há música sem matemática, mas a música não se reduz à matemática; do mesmo modo que uma grande pintura é mais do que as suas linhas geométricas, embora não exista sem elas. (Cornelius Castoriadis)

Higher education is increasingly expected to be a concentrated site for focused job training and career preparation; this comes with an attendant fantasy of a robust economy and ample employment opportunities. This is one kind of “hallucination,” to use Grebowicz’s term. (Christopher Schaberg )
