Question the answers, I repeated every class. Reevaluate your conclusions when the evidence changes.

Craig M. Mullaney

The system we have built refuses to recognize people. Only credit cards are recognized. Drivers' licenses are recognized. But not people. People haven't any use for faces anymore, it seems. They are busy looking at your credit card, your driver's licence, your social security number. If a driver's licence is more reliable than the face I wear, then why do I have a face?

Muhammad Yunus

The earliest sensation at the onset of illness, often preceding the recognition of identifiable symptoms, is apprehension. Something has gone wrong, and a glimpse of mortality shifts somewhere deep in the mind. It is the most ancient of our fears.

Lewis Thomas

It is cognition that is the fantasy.... Everything I tell you now is mere words. Arrange them and rearrange them as I might, I will never be able to explain to you the form of Will... My explanation would only show the correlation between myself and that Will by means of a correlation on the verbal level. The negation of cognition thus correlates to the negation of language. For when those two pillars of Western humanism, individual cognition and evolutionary continuity, lose their meaning, language loses meaning. Existence ceases for the individuum as we know it, and all becomes chaos. You cease to be a unique entity unto yourself, but exist simply as chaos. And not just the chaos that is you; your chaos is also my chaos. To wit, existence is communication, and communication, existence.

Haruki Murakami

Because there was only one thing worse than dying. And that was knowing you were going to die. And where. And how. (“Death Ship”)

Perception can be one-sided or variant: "Glass half empty or half full." There usually is more than one way of perceiving. Thoroughly check your inner dialogue.

T.F. Hodge

The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.

Friedrich von Hayek


I wanted that future officer to weigh decisions with a supple mind and to be comfortable with nuance and uncertainty.

To treat everyone equally is offensive, because it fails to recognize anyone as an individual.
