Topography Quotations

I compare a lot of life to looking at a map through a straw. The less ability you have to see life in a humorous way, the smaller the straw is that you're looking at the map of life. You're not looking at the whole picture. You can't see the whole topography without it, and it can help you to make better choices.
Reggie Watts

A book reads the better which is our own, and has been so long known to us, that we know the topography of its blots, and dog's ears, and can trace the dirt in it to having read it at tea with buttered muffins.
Charles Lamb

Frank Rich

We could not, for example, arrive at a principle like that of entropy without introducing some additional principle, such as randomness, to this topography.
Michael Polanyi
