"La conoscenza è per definizione un bene, forse il bene supremo dell'uomo, perché senza di essa non possono esistere gli altri valori fondamentali. [...] Abbiamo tre carte da giocare per salvare il pianeta: modificare l'educazione per l'infanzia; dare spazio agli adolescenti, cioè alle generazioni che devono essere introdotte nella società; far entrare in azione la componente femminile del genere umano. [...] Non è l'assenza di difetti che conta, ma la passione, la generosità, la comprensione e simpatia del prossimo, e l'accettazione di noi stessi con i nostri errori, le nostre debolezze, le nostre tare e virtù, così simili a quelle dei nostri ascendenti e discendenti. Spetta a ogni individuo il compito di costruire la propria scala di valori e cercare di attenersi a quella, non al fine di ottenere un compenso in terra o in cielo, ma con obiettivo di godere ora per ora, giorno per giorno, della straordinaria esperienza di vivere"

(Rita Levi Montalcini, 2004)

"La fortuna è l'incontro tra la preparazione e l'occasione"

(Seneca)

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life, don't be trapped by dogma, which it is living with the results of other's people thinking, don't let the noise of other opinions ground out your inner voice and have the courage to follow your hearth in into intuitions, they somehow already know what you truly want to become, everything else is secondary, stay hungry stay foolish"

(Steve Jobs, 2005)
