„Woz and I very much liked Bob Dylan's poetry, and we spent a lot of time thinking about a lot of that stuff.“

— Steve Jobs American entrepreneur and co-founder of Apple Inc. 1955 - 2011
Context: Woz and I very much liked Bob Dylan's poetry, and we spent a lot of time thinking about a lot of that stuff. This was California. You could get LSD fresh made from Stanford. You could sleep on the beach at night with your girlfriend. California has a sense of experimentation and a sense of openness—openness to new possibilities. interview in Playboy magazine (February 1985 http://www.playboy.co.uk/article/16311/playboy-interview-steven-jobs) <!-- alternate link : http://gizmodo.com/5694765/29+year+old-steve-jobs-extols-californias-virtues-to-playboy-magazine -->

„At the present time I seem to be thinking rationally again in the style that is characteristic of scientists.“

— John Nash American mathematician and Nobel Prize laureate 1928 - 2015
Context: At the present time I seem to be thinking rationally again in the style that is characteristic of scientists. However this is not entirely a matter of joy as if someone returned from physical disability to good physical health. One aspect of this is that rationality of thought imposes a limit on a person's concept of his relation to the cosmos.

„I remember it so clearly —
how people, seeing me, would break off in midword.
Laughter died.“

— Wisława Szymborska Polish writer 1923 - 2012
Context: I remember it so clearly — how people, seeing me, would break off in midword. Laughter died. Lovers' hands unclasped. Children ran to their mothers. I didn't even know their short-lived names. And that song about a little green leaf — no one ever finished it near me. "Soliloquy for Cassandra"
