Desperation Quotes (5 quotes)
I feel a desperation to make people see what we are doing to the environment, what a mess we are making of our world. At this point, the more people I reach, the more I accomplish.

The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what's true. We have a method, and that method helps us to reach not absolute truth, only asymptotic approaches to the truthnever there, just closer and closer, always finding vast new oceans of undiscovered possibilities. Cleverly designed experiments are the key.
When you surround the enemy, leave a way out. Desperation breeds courage.
— Sun Tzu
