Rebecca Solnit
“The object we call a book is not the real book, but its potential, like a musical score or seed. It exists fully only in the act of being read; and its real home is in the head of the reader, where the symphony resounds, the seed germinates.A book is a heart that beats in the chest of another.”
Rebecca Solnit, The Faraway Nearby

Phil Klay, Redeployment

“Let no one be fooled by the fact that we may write in English, for we intend to do unheard of things with it.”
