Forget about good. Good is a known quantity. Good is what we all agree on. Growth is not necessarily good. Growth is an exploration of unlit recesses that may or may not yield to our research. As long as you stick to good you’ll never have real growth.
– from Bruce Mau’s Incomplete Manifesto.
“When you realise that you’re powerless to navigate overwhelming seas, just keep watching all points of the come-to-pass. Try neither to sell out nor burn out. Don’t yield to addictions or distractions; remain fully present, painfully conscious, but alive to what is happening. That way you can watch for the cracks that will inevitably appear in the system, and you will be ready to intercede. That way you might even get some laughs.”
– Alistair McIntosh, Soil and Soul.
