"I suspect the reason I didn't finish this on the first attempt is that I didn't care about any of the characters. I still don't, but suspect I'll still slog my way through to the end." Nov 09, 2014 04:42PM

A Night in the Lonesome October by Roger Zelazny

Highly original: It is narrated by a dog who is Jack the Ripper's familiar, and Jack is one of the good guys. Get the picture? No?...then read it! (I read it every couple years or so as Halloween approaches.)

Trent Zelazny
“It doesn't matter what you read. What matters is you read. Whether it’s Tolstoy or Twilight, Kierkegaard or Betty and Veronica, keep reading, and don’t ever let somebody else—anybody—have a say about, or try to control, what you choose to learn from and/or escape into.”
Trent Zelazny

John F. Kennedy
“The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived and dishonest--but the myth--persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.

[Commencement Address at Yale University, June 11 1962]
John F. Kennedy

Terry Pratchett
“This was not the time to say “I don’t know.” The brothers had begging, hungry looks, like dogs waiting to be fed. They wanted an answer. It would be nice if it was the right answer, but if it couldn’t be, then any answer would do, because then we would stop being worried...and then his mind caught alight.

That’s what the gods are! An answer that will do! Because there’s food to be caught and babies to be born and life to be lived and so there is no time for big, complicated, and worrying answers! Please give us a simple answer, so that we don’t have to think, because if we think, we might find answers that don’t fit the way we want the world to be.”
Terry Pratchett, Nation

G.K. Chesterton
“Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.”
G.K. Chesterton, Alarms and Discursions

Roger Zelazny
“It was my turn to be silent while a small family of moments crossed my path, single file, from the left, sticking their tongues out at me.”
Roger Zelazny, The Hand of Oberon
