The challenge of life is to choose wisely, from the enormous number of possible dangers, what’s worth worrying about. It is also about choosing, from all the opportunities that each moment brings, what to do next.

Every feature of a human organization is a result of a history, so that everything about them is negotiable and subject to improvement by the invention of new ways of doing things.

Surprise is inherent in the structure of the world. Nature can throw us surprises for which no amount of knowledge would have prepared us.

To be human is to live suspended between danger and opportunity.
