A Quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupery on liberty, freedom, meaning, and path

There is no liberty except the liberty of some one making his way towards something.  Such a man can be set free if you will teach him the meaning of thirst, and how to trace a path to a well.  Only then will he embark upon a course of action that will not be without significance.  You could not liberate a stone if there were no law of gravity - for where will the stone go, once it is quarried?

A Quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupery on essential, sum, parts, and reductionism

We say nothing essential about the cathedral when we speak of its stones.  We say nothing essential about Man when we seek to define him by the qualities of men.
