Citações Richard Saul Wurman


„Uma edição do The New York Times em um dia da semana contém mais informação do que o comum dos mortais poderia receber durante toda a vida na Inglaterra do séc. XVII.“

„The most essential prerequisite to understanding is to be able to admit when you don't understand something“ Information Anxiety 2


„People never forget things, they just never remembered it in the first place because it was too boring“ Information Anxiety

„I believe I’m very normal. I’m hyper-normal. I’m more normal than anyone else I know. I think my thoughts, my indulgences, my desires, my pleasures may at first appear different, but that is only because they are more normal, not because they are more esoteric.

I believe I am bored when other people are bored, only faster. I am interested when others are interested, only more interested. But I also think I’m less, rather than more, intelligent than other people.

By indulging my interests through my life, and perhaps because of rather than despite many failures, I have been able to design my life.“
Information Anxiety 2

„In recognition that any good idea is a fragile thing, you have to give it a few minutes to breath—like a good red wine.“ Information Anxiety 2

„The most common definition [of the word information] is: "the action of informing; formation or molding of the mind or character, training, instruction, teaching; communication of instructive knowledge.

This definition remained fairly constant until the years immediately following World War II, when it came in vogue to use 'information' as a technological term to define anything that was sent over an electric or mechanical channel. 'Information' became part of the vocabulary of the science of messages. And, suddenly, the appellation could be applied to something that didn't necessarily have to inform. This definition was extrapolated to general usage as something told or communicated, whether or not it made sense to the receiver. Now, the freedom engendered by such an amorphous definition has, as you might expect, encouraged its liberal deployment. It has become the single most important word of our decade, the suspense of our lives and our work.“
Information Anxiety

„Perhaps the three principles closest to my heart--and the most radical--are learning to accept your ignorance, paying more attention to the question than to the answer, and never being afraid to go in an opposite direction to find a solution.“ Information Anxiety 2

„The only way to communicate is to understand what it is like not to understand. It is at that moment that you can make something understandable.“

„We anguish over more school facilities and ignore the unlimited classroom that is our city.“
