Famous quotes containing the words building and/or boat:

    Our civilization is characterized by the word “progress.” Progress is its form rather than making progress being one of its features. Typically it constructs. It is occupied with building an ever more complicated structure. And even clarity is sought only as a means to this end, not as an end in itself. For me on the contrary clarity, perspicuity are valuable in themselves.
    Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951)

    The boat is made of dry reeds, and a monkey is steering it.
    Punjabi proverb, trans. by Gurinder Singh Mann.
