A book as much surprising in its clarity as it is disappointing for the premises some authors make their conclusions upon. Psychohistory belonged one day to the science fiction domain, now it is in limbo - between the shaky bubbling morass of psychoa ...more

Charles Bukowski
“I remembered my New
Orleans days, living on two five-cent candy bars a day for weeks at a time in order to have leisure to
write. But starvation, unfortunately, didn't improve art. It only hindered it. A man's soul was rooted in
his stomach. A man could write much better after eating a porterhouse steak and drinking a pint of
whiskey than he could ever write after eating a nickel candy bar. The myth of the starving artist was a
hoax.”
Charles Bukowski, Factotum

Anthony Marra
“The bookcase tipped and the book covers opened like wings over an underbelly of white feathers, dirty with ink.”
Anthony Marra, A Constellation of Vital Phenomena

Ursula K. Le Guin
“Freedom is a heavy load, a great and strange burden for the spirit to undertake. It is not easy. It is not a gift given, but a choice made, and the choice may be a hard one. The road goes upward towards the light; but the laden traveler may never reach the end of it.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Tombs of Atuan

Aesop
“We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.”
Aesop

Scot McKnight
“Why do so many today want to wander off to South Africa or Kenya or India or Russia or Honduras or Costa Rica or Peru to help with justice issues but not spend the same effort in their own neighborhood or community or state? Why do young suburbanites, say in Chicago, want to go to Kentucky or Tennessee to help people but not want to spend that same time to go to the inner city in their own area to help with justice issues? I asked this question to a mature student in my office one day, and he thought he had a partial explanation: 'Because my generation is searching for experiences, and the more exotic and extreme the better. Going down the street to help at a food shelter is good and it is just and some of us are doing that, but it's not an experience. We want experiences.”
Scot McKnight
