Quote of the Day (Ted Chiang, on the Double Meaning of ‘Aspiration’)

“It’s no coincidence that ‘aspiration’ means both hope and the act of breathing.

“When we speak, we use the breath in our lungs to give our thoughts a physical form. The sounds we make are simultaneously our intentions and our life force.”— American science-fiction writer Ted Chiang, The Great Silence, originally published in e-flux Journal, May 2015
