Why don’t you throw something over there and see what it hits?

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.*
(T. S. Eliot)

For wherever you are, there is somewhere further you can go.**
(Tim Ingold)

We hang around just to see what happens, we read a book, catch the TEDtalk, take the free online course, connect with others … and then we throw something and watch to see what it hits.

(*T. S. Eliot, quoted in Jonah Lehrer’s Proust was a Neuroscientist.)
(**Tim Ingold, quoted in Anne Pirrie’s Virtue and the Quiet Art of Scholarship.)
