D.T. Suzuki
“Who would then deny that when I am sipping tea in my tearoom I am swallowing the whole universe with it and that this very moment of my lifting the bowl to my lips is eternity itself transcending time and space?”
D.T. Suzuki, Zen and Japanese Culture

Azar Nafisi
“We in ancient countries have our past—we obsess over the past. They, the Americans, have a dream: they feel nostalgia about the promise of the future.”
Azar Nafisi, Reading Lolita in Tehran

Michael Pollan
“Shake the hand that feeds you.”
Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto

Jeanette Winterson
“The curious are always in some danger. If you are curious you might never come home, like all the men who now live with mermaids at the bottom of the sea.

Or the people who found Atlantis.”
Jeanette Winterson, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit

Jeanette Winterson
“As it is, I can't settle, I want someone who is fierce and will love me until death and know that love is as strong as death, and be on my side for ever and ever. I want someone who will destroy and be destroyed by me. There are many forms of love and affection, some people spend their whole lives together without knowing each other's names. Naming is a difficult and time-consuming process; it concerns essences, and it means power. But on the wild nights who can you call home? Only the one who knows your name.”
Jeanette Winterson, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit
