Virid cerebrum, open heart,
where love and knowledge keep perforating the working hypotheses.

Quotation by Eric Hoffer
The difficult and risky task of meeting and mastering the new—whether it be the settlement of new lands or the initiation of new ways of life—is not undertaken by the vanguard of society but by its rear. It is the misfits, failures, fugitives, outcasts and their like who are among the first to grapple with the new.
Eric Hoffer (1902–1983), U.S. philosopher. The Passionate State of Mind, aphorism 51 (1955).
