Attention spans.........................................

“Do stuff. be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration's shove or society's kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It's all about paying attention. attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. stay eager.”
-Susan Sontag

“Education is every day and everywhere, the only thing you have to pay is attention.” 
-Tim Fargo

"Pat Moynihan could write books with one hand and legislate with the other. I can't; I have a short attention span. The slightest distraction would take me away from writing."
-Barney Frank

Ed. Note:  Considering Dodd-Frank, one might wish he did more writing and less legislating.  Just saying.

"The average attention span of the modern human being is about half as long as whatever you're trying to tell them."
-Meg Rosoff

“Walk slowly through the world and pay attention” 
-Marty Rubin
