“LA CULTURE, C’EST COMME LA CONFITURE : MOINS ON EN A, PLUS ON L’ÉTALE !”

Mi-am adus aminte de citatul asta cand am citit, de curand, raspunsul lui Proust la Chestionarul lui Proust:), la intrebarea “Personajele istorice pe care le detest cel mai mult”. Proust raspunde: “Nu sunt suficient de instruit ca să răspund.”

„Nu cunoaştem decât ceea ce îmblânzim. Iar oamenii nu mai au timp să cunoască nimic. Cumpără lucruri de gata de la neguţători. Cum însă nu există neguţători de prieteni, oamenii nu mai au prieteni.” (Antoine de Saint-Exupery, „Micul Prinţ”)

But it’s not just ears that are affected. The right eye has been shown to be best for processing colors.”

Steve Jobs Quotes

“Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works.”
