Desafiando os limites estabelecidos

[N]atural resources are not finite in any meaningful economic sense, mind-boggling though this assertion may be. The stocks of them are not fixed but rather are expanding through human ingenuity.»

Julian Simon (página 24 do livro figurado), via Café Hayek

«Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.»(Texto que acompanhou o celebérrimo anúncio televisionado, Think Different, da Apple, em 1997, pouco tempo depois do regresso de Steve Jobs à companhia que co-fundou.)
