For, unlike the nineteenth century, ours is a crisis not of the present but of the future 
and of the possibility of thinking the future

'Well', said Pooh, 'what I like best,' and then he had to stop and think.
Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment
just before you began to eat it which was better
than when you were, but
he didn't know what it was called.

 ( ... ) the only way to truly conquer something, as every great philospoher and geneticist will tell you, is to love it.

He was what we now would call a bricoleur, someone able to create order out of whatever materials were at hand (...) Bricoleurs remain creative under pressure, precisely because they routinely act in chaotic conditions and pull order out of them. Thus, when situations unravel, this is simply normal natural trouble for bricoleurs, and they proceed with whatever materials are at hand. Knowing these materials intimately, they then are able, usually in the company of other simliarly skilled people, to form the materials or insights into novel combinations.

In their opening letter (to the First Folio) Heminges and Condell address the reader with a eulogy of Shakespeare:

who, as he was a happy imitator of Nature, was a most gentle expressor of it. His mind and hand went together: And what he thought, he uttered with that easinesse, that wee have scarse recieved from him a blot in his papers. But it is not our province, who onely gather his works, and give them you, to praise him. It is yours that reade him. And there we hope, to your divers capacities, you will finde enough, both to draw, and hold you : for his wit can no more lie hid, then it could be lost. Reade him, therefore; and againe, and againe.

From Shakespeare's Restless World, Neil MacGregor

Landscape is an intensely visual idea. In most definitions of landscape the viewer is outside of it. This is the primary way in which it differs from place. Places are very much things to be inside of.
An important theme of this book is that place is not just a thing in the world but a way of understanding the world.
