James Yorke on Disorder

“The first message is that there is disorder. Physicists and mathematicians want to discover regularities. People say, what use is disorder. But people have to know about disorder if they are going to deal with it. The automechanic who doesn’t know about sludge in valves is not a good mechanic.”

James Yorke, quoted in Chaos: Making a New Science by James Gleick
