Certain product categories become less attractive for us because, as they become mature, they become low-cost, and hence, there is less to invent.

A long time ago, I became aware that many of us have a tendency to lump nature into simplistic categories, such as what we consider beautiful or ugly, important or unimportant.

Open your refrigerator, your freezer, your kitchen cupboards, and look at the labels on your food. You’ll find ‘natural flavor’ or ‘artificial flavor’ in just about every list of ingredients. The similarities between these two broad categories are far more significant than the differences.

David Chang

When we talk about music, we tend to place our experiences into one of two categories: making the music and listening to it. Delineating the two seems practical and obvious.

We said in our 21st Century Party paper there are 61 mosaic groups, which the market research people use as different socio-economic categories and half of our members come from just five of those groups and that is very narrow – too narrow.

Claudia Rankine’s book-length poem ‘Citizen’ was nominated for National Book Critics Circle awards in the categories of poetry and criticism.

A lot of times we have these categories that maybe don’t fit the reality of human experience and human identity. I’m completely sympathetic to what a lot of people in my community are saying – that often as Asian Americans we’re made to feel more foreign than we internally feel ourselves.

Gary Johnson
If my spirit is down, then so are the physical and mental levels. That’s always been the case. When I’m motivated, my body feels great and I’m ready and excited to go.

Rob Van Dam
If you haven’t really raced a lot in lower categories, and you make the jump to Formula One, you have to learn in Formula One, and a lot more people are watching.

Steve Aoki
I do shop online! But I’m shopping online mostly in the home categories – One Kings Lane and Gilt.

So, you know, for me, I shop at Net-A-Porter, but I don’t really shop that much for clothing online.

Nate Berkus
Open-mindedness is considered to be a virtue. But, strictly speaking, it cannot occur. A new experience must be redacted into old categories. We cannot handle each event freshly in its own right. If we did so, of what use would past experience be?

Gordon W. Allport
4chan is a framework of pictures and text. I’ve always been extremely hands-off with dictating what gets posted, past general categories and rules. I support providing a place to discuss anything, although I don’t agree with everything that’s posted.

Henry Louis Gates

Kevin Nealon
I love taxonomies, categories, ways of dividing people into groups.

Gretchen Rubin
My music has always been sort of in between categories.
