It is a net for catching days. It is a scaffolding on which a worker can stand and labor with both hands at sections of time.

Callister

The telescope allows us to extend our vision into the macrosphere, the Hubble Space Telescope extends our optic nerve into space, and it allows us to mainline space and time through our optic nerve.” ~ Jason Silva

They have mistaken the scaffolding for the structure, while all the time God is working out His purpose with a great and undeterred patience.” ~ Oswald Chambers

It’s exactly how I made my living for 15 years.” ~ Adam Savage

There are texts that will always be our dead-end streets; fragments that will be bridges; words that will be like the scaffolding that protects fragile constructions.” ~ Valeria Luiselli

  34. “My loving friend, you see, my life was never given a foundation, no one was able to imagine what it would want to become. In Venice there stands the so-called Ca del Duca, a princely foundation, on which later the most wretched tenement came to be built. With me it’s the opposite: the beautiful arched elevations of my spirit rest on the most tentative beginning; a wooden scaffolding, a few boards….Is that why I feel inhibited in raising the nave, the tower to which the weight of the great bells is to be hoisted (by angels, who else could do it)?” ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
  35. “The university is one of various funding structures by which people who want to do theoretical work stay alive, the same way that people go to grad school, not because they think it’s going to change the world but because there’s no patron system anymore, and they need some scaffolding of support while they’re trying to figure out how they can proceed in their lives. I think that’s utterly legit. A lot of our better theorists and thinkers, that’s what the university is for them.” ~ Joshua Clover
