Robert M. Pirsig

As a rule, I am very careful to be shallow and conventional where depth and originality are wasted.
Lucy Maud Montgomery

So if we are part of some finite structure then, if the gradient is so shallow, it is likely to go on much further.
It is a ship with a great deal of sail but a very shallow keel.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
