Neil Postman
“We do not measure a culture by its output of undisguised trivialities but by what it claims as significant.”

Ursula K. Le Guin
“I think the mystery of art lies in this, that artists’ relationship is essentially with their work — not with power, not with profit, not with themselves, not even with their audience.”
Ursula K. Le Guin

“She would not exploit anyone. People would not observed by irony run amok. The audience would not have their superiority confirmed. Somehow they would feel like everyone was in it together.”
Jane McCafferty

Ditto! I'm just getting into Goodreads, despite having signed up a while ago. Gotta admit, hanging around writers/readers online beats the cacophony on Twitter by a long shot.
