  • Sofie Rahbekhas quotedlast year
    It is sometimes said that love or perhaps money makes the world go round, but ideas have a much better claim to keeping us all spinning on our axis. Ideas are the great currency of life, driving progress and nurturing understanding – of ourselves and of the world around us – and, arguably, are the defining characteristic that elevates our species above all others. We may not be the only creature to entertain ideas – one need only glimpse a squirrel striving to liberate a feast of nuts from a bird feeder to see that – but we have the biggest and best ideas, not to mention the wherewithal to bring them to fruition.

    ‘A pile of rocks ceases to be a rock pile when somebody contemplates it with the idea of a cathedral in mind.’
