Messages of the Day

  • ""No intelligence evolves without a stimulus from a developed form of that intelligence" - Joseph Chilton Pearce
  • “In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semihuman. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog” - Edward Hoagland
  • " Students believe in the system, or what they call the overview, which I find very disturbing, disconcerting. I know the importance of this overview and I know how difficult it is to work without it. One of the first things I did when I started teaching was I took out the overview. All I want is serious work. Serious means work, work hard." - Morton Feldman
