"The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed

without changing our thinking. " -- Albert Einstein

 

"A relentless barrage of "why’s" is the best way to prepare your mind

to pierce the clouded veil of thinking caused by the status quo. Use

it often."  -- Shigeo Shingo

 

“And as for the vague something --- was it a sinister or a sorrowful,

a designing or a desponding expression? --- that opened upon a

careful observer, now and then, in his eye, and closed again before

one could fathom the strange depth partially disclosed; that

something which used to make me fear and shrink, as if I had been

wandering amongst volcanic-looking hills, and had suddenly felt the

ground quiver, and seen it gape: that something, I, at intervals, beheld

still; and with throbbing heart, but not with palsied nerves. Instead of wishing

to shun, I longed only to dare --- to divine it; and I thought Miss Ingram happy,

because one day she might look into the abyss at her leisure, explore its secrets and analyse their nature.”

--  Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
