While searching for yesterday's quotes on labor I naturally encountered a few quotes on Collaboration.

The quotes:

My fate cannot be mastered; it can only be collaborated with and thereby, to some extent, directed. Nor am I the captain of my soul; I am only its noisiest passenger.
     - Aldous Leonard Huxley, 1894 - 1963

Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.
     - Andre Gide, 1869 - 1951

The mind itself is an art object. It is a Mondrian canvas onto whose homemade grids it fits its own preselected products. Our knowledge is contextual and only contextual. Ordering and invention coincide: we call their collaboration knowledge.
     - Annie Dillard

Our duty, as men and women, is to proceed as if limits to our ability did not exist. We are collaborators in creation.
     - Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, 1881 - 1955
