“Nothing, save the hangman's noose, concentrates the mind like piles of cash.”
Tim Wu, The Master Switch: The Rise and Fall of Information Empires

“It is an underacknowledged truism that, just as you are what you eat, how and what you think depends on what information you are exposed to.”
Tim Wu, The Master Switch: The Rise and Fall of Information Empires

“The economist John Maynard Keynes once said, “When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir?”
Tim Wu, The Master Switch: The Rise and Fall of Information Empires

“Disaster followed disaster... the hero stuck in there, though. Macon had long ago noticed that all adventure movies had the same moral: Perseverance pays.

Anne Tyler, The Accidental Tourist

“...that was Julian for you: reckless. A dashing sailor, a speedy driver, a frequenter of single bars, he was the kind of man who would make a purchase without consulting _Consumer Reports_.”
Anne Tyler, The Accidental Tourist
