"You can never focus on an issue too long before being distracted. And paradoxically it is this distraction that seems to spur new insights. Chris Penrose Ransley has dubbed it "peripheral intellectual vision" i.e. focus on an issue and then look slightly away and you will find what you are looking for." ; http://www.gurteen.com/gurteen/gurteen.nsf/id/river-cafe

"If we are to survive, we must have ideas, vision, and courage. These things are rarely produced by committees. Everything that matters in our intellectual and moral life begins with an individual confronting his own mind and conscience in a room by himself." Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. Decline of Heroes
"The new individuals seek true voice, direct participation, unmediated influence, and identity-based community because they are comfortable using their own experience as a the basis for making judgments. Such a person is deeply aware of his or her own subjectivity." - Shoshana Zuboff, Harvard Business School, The Support Economy
"One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time." - André Gide
"You have to know how to accept rejection and reject acceptance." - Ray Bradbury
