Forget definition

The advice I give my students is the same advice I give myself — forget definition, forget assumption, watch.

We inhabit, we are part of, a reality for which explanation is much too poor and small.

No physicist would dispute this, though he or she might be less ready than I am to have recourse to the old language and call reality miraculous.

Marilynne Robinson, 1943 – , American novelist and essayist, Reclaiming a Sense of the Sacred
