3. "To live at all is to share a world with cagey magic, skeptical magic, asshole magic. But, honestly, the trees must belong to something; the blossoms that tongue each groove between buildings, the water and the stone and the serious man-made steel railings all must belong. This major artery where blood and starlight pump along the tracks, where banks and malls and office towers shudder and gestate in the concrete like baobab trees."
- Jes Battis, Bleeding Out
4. "(Q)Please explain for me what is meant by "soul-mate" . . . (A) Those of any sect or group where there is the answering of one to another; as would be the tongue to the groove, the tenon to the mortise; or in any such where they are a complement one of another--that is what is meant by "soul-mate." Not that as from physical attraction, but from the mental and spiritual help."
- Quote by Edgar Cayce
6. "You walk a path enough, you’ll wear a groove in it. The groove gets too deep, metaphorically speaking, it becomes difficult to walk anywhere else. Maybe that path is the one you’re meant to travel, and that’s why the groove is there in the first place."
- Harry Hunsicker, Shadow Boys
7. "Amos and I called our first joint article Belief in the Law of Small Numbers. We explained, tongue-in-cheek, that intuitions about random sampling appear to satisfy the law of small numbers, which asserts that the law of large numbers applies to small numbers as well. We also included a strongly worded recommendation that researchers regard their statistical intuitions with proper suspicion and replace impression formation by computation whenever possible."
- Daniel Kahneman, Thinking
8. "There is joint action, but no joint thinking. There is only tradition which preserves thoughts and communicates them to others as a stimulus to their thinking."
- Ludwig von Mises, Human Action: A Treatise On Economics
