When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.
Where you come from is gone, where you thought you were going to never was there, and where you are is no good unless you can get away from it
Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another’s skin, another’s voice, another’s soul.
-Joyce Carol Oates
“Imagining living in a universe without purpose may prepare us to better face reality head on. I cannot see that this is such a bad thing. Living in a strange and remarkable universe that is the way it is, independent of our desires and hopes, is far more satisfying for me than living in a fairy-tale universe invented to justify our existence.”
– Lawrence M. Krauss
