Citações Diane Ackerman

„As palavras são pequenas formas no maravilhoso caos que é o mundo. Formas que focalizam e prendem idéias, que afiam os pensamentos, que conseguem pintar aquarelas de percepção.“

—  Diane Ackerman, livro A Natural History of the Senses
Words are small shapes in the gorgeous chaos of the world. But they are shapes. They bring the world into focus. They corral ideas. They hone thoughts. They paint watercolors of perception. A Natural History of the Senses‎ - Página 7, de Diane Ackerman - Vintage Books, 1995, ISBN 0679735666, 9780679735663 - 331 páginas
