Artists are always misunderstood.(Thwonk)" - Joan Bauer

Can all these related phenomena merely be dismissed as coincidence?" - Erich von Daniken

"Text is linear; it is black and white; it doesn't zoom around the page in 3-D; it isn't intelligent by itself; in fact, in terms of immediate reaction it is quite boring. I can't imagine a single preliterate was ever wowed at the first sight of text, and yet text has been the basis of arguably the most fundamental intellectual transformation of the human species. It and its subforms, such as algebra, have made science education for all a plausible goal." - Andrea diSessa

"I think of the medium as a people-to-people medium, not cameraman-to-people, not direction-to-people, not writers-to-people, but people-to-peopleYou can only involve an audience with people.

But you give them something to worry about, some person they can worry about, and care about, and you've got them, you've got them involved." - Frank Capra

"Here's what I say: We will ignore the cult of doom and gloom and embrace the cause of zoom and boom.

The universe always gives us exactly what we need, exactly when we need it." - Rob Brezsny

"I quite fancy having a hover car, but I don't fancy everyone having one. Because I feel like I spend quite a lot of time stuck in traffic on the 405 but if everybody had one then they'd be scared and we'd crash, but if it was just me, then I think I would zoom home quite fast. I also quite fancy a phone attached to my hand but then I don't know if I fancy it being stuck to my body." - Kate Beckinsale

"There are definitely connections between poems, but I wanted each to stand on its own.

You're just concerned with your circumstances, what you're trying to get out of someone or some scene." - Cherien Dabis

Yeah, how dare he go out and be all heroic and stuff when you want him here slobbering over your big boobs." - Katie MacAlister
