"As intelligence goes up, happiness goes down.
See, I made a graph. I make lots of graphs.

Lisa Simpson, The Simpsons, episode 257

"Teddy told me the most important idea in advertising is "new".
It creates an itch. We also talked about a deeper bond with the product: nostalgia.
It's delicate but potent. In greek nostalgia literally means "the pain from an old wound"
It's a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone."

Don Draper, Mad Man

"Ces jours-là vous avez désespérément besoin d'Art.
Vous aspirez ardemment à renouer avec votre illusion spirituelle,
vous souhaitez passionnément que quelque chose vous sauve de destins biologiques
pour que toute poésie et toute grandeur ne soient pas évincées de ce monde."

L'élégance du hérisson, Mariel Barbery
