„Nonsense is that which does not fit into the prearranged patterns which we have superimposed on reality… Nonsense is nonsense only when we have not yet found that point of view from which it makes sense.“

„Proselytism is solemn nonsense, it makes no sense.“

—  Papa Francesco 266th Pope of the Catholic Church 1936

We need to get to know each other, listen to each other and improve our knowledge of the world around us. Sometimes after a meeting I want to arrange another one because new ideas are born and I discover new needs. This is important: to get to know people, listen, expand the circle of ideas. The world is crisscrossed by roads that come closer together and move apart, but the important thing is that they lead towards the Good.

„Nonsense wakes up the brain cells. And it helps develop a sense of humor, which is awfully important in this day and age.“

—  Dr. Seuss American children's writer and illustrator, co-founder of Beginner Books 1904 - 1991

As quoted in "Author Isn't Just a Cat in the Hat" by Miles Corwin in The Los Angeles Times (27 November 1983); also in Dr. Seuss: American Icon (2004) by Philip Nel, p. 38
Contexto: Nonsense wakes up the brain cells. And it helps develop a sense of humor, which is awfully important in this day and age. Humor has a tremendous place in this sordid world. It's more than just a matter of laughing. If you can see things out of whack, then you can see how things can be in whack.

„We have rejected reason because we have found another reason that could be called trans-rational, which has its own law, construction and sense... This reason has found a way-Cubism-of expressing the object.“

—  Kazimir Malevich Russian and Soviet artist of polish descent 1878 - 1935
