Octavia E. Butler
“In order to rise
From its own ashes
A phoenix
First
Must
Burn.”
Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Talents

Paul Graham
“Object-oriented programming offers a sustainable way to write spaghetti code. It lets you accrete programs as a series of patches.”
Paul Graham, Hackers & Painters: Big Ideas from the Computer Age

Jeanette Winterson
“Book collecting is an obsession, an occupation, a disease, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it must do it. Those who do not do it, think of it as a cousin of stamp collecting, a sister of the trophy cabinet, bastard of a sound bank account and a weak mind.”
Jeanette Winterson

Jonathan Safran Foer
“The secret was a hole in the middle of me that every happy thing fell into.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Patti Smith
“The artist seeks contact with his intuitive sense of the gods, but in order to create his work, he cannot stay in this seductive and incorporeal realm. He must return to the material world in order to do his work. It's the artist's responsibility to balance mystical communication and the labor of creation.”
Patti Smith, Just Kids
