„It always takes two. For relationships to work, for them to break apart, for them to be fixed.“

„Linear relationships can be captured with a straight line on a graph. Linear relationships are easy to think about.... Linear equations are solvable... Linear systems have an important modular virtue: you can take them apart, and put them together again — the pieces add up.“

—  James Gleick American author, journalist, and biographer 1954
p. 23 as cited in: James R. Hansen (2004), Trees of Texas: An Easy Guide to Leaf Identification, p. 246 Hanssen commented: "Following distinctions between linear and nonlinear systems from James Gleick's 1987 book on chaos theory may be helpful."

„There can be no society without poetry, but society can never be realized as poetry, it is never poetic. Sometimes the two terms seek to break apart. They cannot.“

„It looks like poets will always have their work cut out for them.“

—  Wisława Szymborska Polish writer 1923 - 2012
Context: Granted, in daily speech, where we don't stop to consider every word, we all use phrases like "the ordinary world," "ordinary life," "the ordinary course of events"… But in the language of poetry, where every word is weighed, nothing is usual or normal. Not a single stone and not a single cloud above it. Not a single day and not a single night after it. And above all, not a single existence, not anyone's existence in this world. It looks like poets will always have their work cut out for them.
