Difficult Women by Roxane Gay
"3.5. I was originally going to give this four stars until I got to the stories that were an attempt at magical realism...and I couldn't stop cringing. The rest of the book is a solid body of work."

Donald A. Norman
“Don’t these so-called advances also cause us to lose valuable mental skills? Each technological advance that provides a mental aid also brings along critics who decry the loss of the human skill that has been made less valuable. Fine, I say: if the skill is easily automated, it wasn’t essential.”
Donald A. Norman, The Design of Everyday Things

Elizabeth Wurtzel
“I need the thing that happens when your brain shuts off and your heart turns on.”

“At least my computer allows flexibility in type size; most do not.”
Donald A. Norman, The Design of Everyday Things

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
“But by far the worst thing we do to males—by making them feel they have to be hard—is that we leave them with very fragile egos. The harder a man feels compelled to be, the weaker his ego is. And then we do a much greater disservice to girls, because we raise them to cater to the fragile egos of males.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, We Should All Be Feminists

Dave Eggers
“When I was very young I couldn't watch anything black and white on TV because I knew the people moving were now dust.”
Dave Eggers
