Doug shared a quote
Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
“I had no interest in football or basketball but had learned it was best to pretend otherwise. If a boy didn’t care for barbecued chicken or potato chips, people would accept it as a matter of personal taste, saying, “Oh well, I guess it takes all kinds.” You could turn up your nose at the president or Coke or even God, but there were names for boys who didn’t like sports.”
David Sedaris

Austin Kleon
“You don’t get to pick your family, but you can pick your teachers and you can pick your friends and you can pick the music you listen to and you can pick the books you read and you can pick the movies you see. You are, in fact, a mashup of what you choose to let into your life. You are the sum of your influences. The German writer Goethe said, "We are shaped and fashioned by what we love.”
Austin Kleon, Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative

George Orwell
“It was like struggling with some crushing physical task, something which one had the right to refuse and which one was nevertheless neurotically anxious to accomplish.”
George Orwell, 1984

Douglas Adams
“He inched his way up the corridor as if he would rather be yarding his way down it, which was true.”
Douglas Adams, Life, the Universe and Everything

Douglas Adams
“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

Naomi Klein
“When it comes to paying contractors, the sky is the limit; when it comes to financing the basic functions of the state, the coffers are empty.”
Naomi Klein, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism
