Det viktigste for meg er likevel å understreke museumsbesøket som en individuell opplevelse. Det er «jeg» som leser, tar på, beveger meg. I motsetning til i filmen eller teatret der et «vi» opplever det samme må utstillingskritikken ta opp i seg at mulighetene til å oppleve ulikt er større i utstillingen. Derfor må også dette elementet med i kritikken. Er det mulig å følge med uten å lese alt? Er det mulighet til fordypning? Går det greit å virre rundt en stund uten å følge en rekkefølge? Mange ting i en helhet - Per Magnus Finnanger Sandsmark

"I didn’t get married until I was 50. I think it finally happened because I stopped thinking it was possible.""How do you mean?""Before I gave up, I was putting so much pressure on myself that I’d immediately be considering and measuring every man I’d meet. It’s not natural to begin a relationship with such a long term view. When I met my husband, I wasn’t looking past that afternoon."

Silence, understood as no sound, cannot be experienced as long as you are alive, since the body itself is quite a noisy place. Jana Winderen

"With all the good it’s brought, technology is destroying our communication skills— especially the ability to listen. The older generation can still listen, but many of the youngsters can’t even look you in the eye while you speak. If they aren’t looking at their mobiles, they’re looking over your shoulder or glancing around the room."
"Why is verbal communication more important than communication through a device?"
"Because there’s only so much you can learn from your Facebook friends."

A Love Story

humansofnewyork:

"I can’t stand moral absolutism. You know, there’s always that guy who wants to point out that Martin Luther King cheated on his wife— as if he obviously couldn’t have been a great person if he did something like that. Or someone will bring out an inspirational quote, and get you to agree, and then inform you that Hitler said it. As if a good thought couldn’t come from Hitler. Moral absolutism keeps us from learning from the past. It’s easy to say: ‘Hitler was a demon. Nazis were all bad seeds.’ That’s simple. It’s much harder to say: ‘Is that humanity? Is that me?’"
