„Tell your son to stop trying to fill your head with science — for to fill your heart with love is enough!“

—  Richard Feynman, buch The Pleasure of Finding Things Out

Note to the mother of Marcus Chown, who had admired the profile of Feynman presented in the BBC TV Horizon program "The Pleasure of Finding Things Out" (1981). Written after Chown asked Feynman to write her a birthday note, hoping it would increase her interest in science.

Physics is not the most important thing, love is."

„Hold onto your breath
Hold onto your heart
Hold onto your hope“

—  Yip Harburg American song lyricist 1896 - 1981

"Optimistic Voices".
Kontext: You’re out of the woods
You’re out of the dark
You’re out of the night
Step into the sun, step into the light,
Keep straight ahead
For the most glorious place
On the Face of the Earth
Or the sky. Hold onto your breath
Hold onto your heart
Hold onto your hope,
March up to the gate
And bid it open.

„If you don't enter that world, hold your breath with the characters and become involved in their destiny, you won't be able to empathize, and empathy is at the heart of the novel.“

—  Azar Nafisi, buch Reading Lolita in Tehran

Reading Lolita in Tehran (2003)
Kontext: A novel is not an allegory... It is the sensual experience of another world. If you don't enter that world, hold your breath with the characters and become involved in their destiny, you won't be able to empathize, and empathy is at the heart of the novel. This is how you read a novel: you inhale the experience. So start breathing.
