“When you view your world exclusively through the lens of science, your prescription will never be strong enough.”
Jay Nichols

“Standing there, peering around his room, Pete realized something that should have dawned on him years ago: Science really did suck. (Russell was right.) There just wasn’t any point to it. Sure, in its most altruistic distillation, science saved lives—but when had it ever made those lives worth living? The cold machine called science’s sole purpose, and Pete knew it now, was to drain the wonder out of things, to sap the imagination of its juices, to rob possibilities from dreamers. Science explained without ever getting to the crux of the matter, locking us all into a single paradigm of thought: that all we are is randomly accumulated stardust hanging out on a larger clump of randomly accumulated stardust that is spiraling out and away from other chunks of randomly accumulated stardust, on a collision course with an empty infinity.”
Jay Nichols, Canis Major

“How did he get here? What drew him back? Easy answer: the monkey bars. Not-so-easy answer. . . . What took him away in the first place? Gyroscopic deflections are only partly to blame. Who can stop a revolving planet? Who can predict where on the table a spinning quarter will fall flat?”
Jay Nichols, Monkey Bars

“The creative adult is the child who has survived.”
Ursula K. Le Guin

“To be nobody but
yourself in a world
which is doing its best day and night to make you like
everybody else means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight and never stop fighting.”
E.E. Cummings

“I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.”
Kurt Cobain

“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.”
Edgar Allan Poe

“When you view your world exclusively through the lens of science, your prescription will never be strong enough.”
Jay Nichols
