“You just go where your high-top sneakers sneak, and don't forget to use your head.”
Cheshire Cat

Neil deGrasse Tyson
“Not enough books focus on how a culture responds to radically new ideas or discovery. Especially in the biography genre, they tend to focus on all the sordid details in the life of the person who made the discovery. I find this path to be voyeuristic but not enlightening. Instead, I ask, After evolution was discovered, how did religion and society respond? After cities were electrified, how did daily life change? After the airplane could fly from one country to another, how did commerce or warfare change? After we walked on the Moon, how differently did we view Earth? My larger understanding of people, places and things derives primarily from stories surrounding questions such as those.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson

“When I am an old woman I shall wear purple. With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.”
Jenny Joseph, Warning: When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple

“A people are as healthy and confident as the stories they tell themselves. Sick storytellers can make nations sick.”
