Its corridors were the passages of my own brain." - Lisa St. Aubin de Teran

"I walk around the school hallways and look at the people. I look at the teachers and wonder why they're here. If they like their jobs. Or us. And I wonder how smart they were when they were fifteen.

Or wondering who did the heart breaking. And wondering why." - Stephen Chbosky

"The system is that there is no system. That doesn't mean we don't have process. Apple is a very disciplined company, and we have great processes. But that's not what it's about.
