-All children are born geniuses; 9,999 out of every 10,000 are swiftly, inadvertently degeniused by grownups. (See Einstein)
-Humanity is acquiring all the right technology for all the wrong reasons.
-Nature is trying very hard to make us succeed, but nature does not depend on us. We are not the only experiment.
-Everything you’ve learned in school as “obvious” becomes less and less obvious as you begin to study the universe. For example, there are no solids in the universe. There’s not even a suggestion of a solid. There are no absolute continuums. There are no surfaces. There are no straight lines.
-When I’m working on a problem, I never think about beauty. I think only how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.
R. Buckminster Fuller
