such an important book, I knew had to read it... except it has so much violence in the beginning, I wasn't sure I could finish it. The violence seemed surreal, but I know that people have to deal with this kind of crap still to this day.

Melissa Hart
“Rain in the Northwest is not the pounding, flashing performance enjoyed by the eastern part of the nation. Nor is it the festive annual soaking I'd been used to in Southern California.

“Nothing is more dangerous than a dogmatic worldview - nothing more constraining, more blinding to innovation, more destructive of openness to novelty.”
Stephen Jay Gould

J.G. Ballard
“I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world, to release the truth within us, to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen.”
J.G. Ballard

“If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.”
