A Quote by Xia Neifion~Clark on form, function, nature, and refinement

Nature fits form to function.  And as one's function is refined their substance will reflect the same.

A Quote by Paul Valery on words, language, sentence, and function

You have certainly observed the curious fact that a given word which is perfectly clear when you hear it or use it in everyday language, and which does not give rise to any difficulty when it is engaged in the rapid movement of an ordinary sentence becomes magically embarrassing, introduces a strange resistance, frustrates any effort at definition as soon as you take it out of circulation to examine it separately and look for its meaning after taking away its instantaneous function.

Paul Valery (1871 - 1945)

A Quote by Werner Erhard on problems, communities, societies, resolved, brought together, together, common sense, visionary, realization, function, live, vision, great leader, level, following, great, leader, era, and ourselves

The problems we have now in communities and societies are going to be resolved only when we are brought together by a common sense that each of us is a visionary.  Each of us must come to the realization that we can function and live at the level of vision rather than following some great leader's vision.  Instead of looking for a great leader, we are in an era where each of us needs to find the great leader in ourselves.
