"The place in which I'll fit does not exist until I make it." -James Baldwin

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research." -Albert Einstein (Cosmic Religion: With Other Opinions and Aphorisms, 1931, pg. 97)

"Whether you can observe a thing or not depends on the theory which you use. It is the theory which decides what can be observed."—Albert Einstein

"My aim is to inspire reflection and action; so think of this book as a conversation, where you are free to elaborate and dissent" (Bertrand, Rethinking Worldview, 2009, p. 12)

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” ― Oscar Wilde

"(...) We cannot do everything, and realizing that we feel liberated.
This allows us to do something, and do it very well.
It is incomplete but it is a beginning, a step along the way, and an opportunity for the grace of the Lord to appear and do the rest.
Maybe we will never see the final results, but there is the difference between the master builder and the worker.
We are workers, not master builders; ministers, but not the Messiah.
We are prophets of a future that is not ours" (" Prayer of Oscar Romero "- by Ken Untener). [from Alejandra Guajardo]
