The school of hard knocks is an accelerated curriculum.
— Menander

I hooked up my accelerator pedal in my car to my brake lights. I hit the gas, people behind me stop, and I'm gone.
Steven Wright accelerators quote

It seems like the chaos of this world is accelerating, but so is the beauty in the consciousness of more and more people.
— Anthony Kiedis

When he ran from a cop his transitions from accelerating walk to easy jog trot to brisk canter to headlong gallop to flogged-piston sprint...were as distinct and as soberly in order as an automatic gearshift.
— James Agee

It is not enough for theory to describe and analyze, it must itself be an event in the universe it describes. In order to do this theory must partake of and become the acceleration of this logic. It must tear itself from all referents and take pride only in the future. Theory must operate on time at the cost of a deliberate distortion of present reality.
— accelerators quotation by Jean Baudrillard
