“It is a thought that has propelled me forward for so long it is no longer a thought, really. It’s closer to a callous, something I’ve leaned on for too many hours.”
Matthew Callan, Hang A Crooked Number

Jason Fagone
“The world is made of stuff and that stuff behaves in certain predictable ways; if you master the rules, you master the stuff.”
Jason Fagone, Ingenious: A True Story of Invention, Automotive Daring, and the Race to Revive America

Louis L'Amour
“Once you have read a book you care about, some part of it is always with you.”
Louis L'Amour, Matagorda/The First Fast Draw

Jason Fagone
“Building stuff was an ethical act, a way to become more fully human.”
Jason Fagone, Ingenious: A True Story of Invention, Automotive Daring, and the Race to Revive America

Jennifer Egan
“We stand there, quiet. My questions all seem wrong: How did you get so old? Was it all at once, in a day, or did you peter out bit by bit? When did you stop having parties? Did everyone else get old too, or was it just you? Are other people still here, hiding in the palm trees or holding their breath underwater? When did you last swim your laps? Do your bones hurt? Did you know this was coming and hide that you knew, or did it ambush you from behind?”
Jennifer Egan, A Visit from the Goon Squad
