Ian liked a quote
The Dream of Scipio by Iain Pears
“Do you know, the only people I can have a conversation with are the Jews? At least when they quote scripture at you they are not merely repeating something some priest has babbled in their ear. They have the great merit of disagreeing with nearly everything I say. In fact, they disagree with almost everything they say themselves. And most importantly, they don't think that shouting strengthens their argument.”

The Dream of Scipio by Iain Pears
“Was not Hypatia the greatest philosopher of Alexandria, and a true martyr to the old values of learning? She was torn to pieces by a mob of incensed Christians not because she was a woman, but because her learning was so profound, her skills at dialectic so extensive that she reduced all who queried her to embarrassed silence. They could not argue with her, so they murdered her.”
Iain Pears
Ian liked a quote
“Something like panic struck at Hurlow. Moffat's calm confession of fear withdrew the prop upon which he had leaned. Down there, among the motionless shadows, lurked invisible things, things that were nameless, shapeless and malignant; things which could see without being seen. One of the long lost terrors of childhood returned to him, and like a child he put his hand into Moffat's.”

“When red fights with white, pink is always the winner. Let that be a lesson in love.”
Jarod Kintz, My love can only occupy one person at a time

Bo Burnham
“Well, man, you know what they say."
No, I don't. I don't know what they say.
I don't even know who they are.
Who is this they?
They seem pretty smug.
They seem to think they know shit.
Fuck them.”
Bo Burnham, Egghead: Or, You Can't Survive on Ideas Alone
tags: humor

Bo Burnham
“Sully suffers from a stutter,
simple syllables will clutter,
stalling speeches up on beaches
like a sunken sailboat rudder.

Sully strains to say his phrases,
sickened by the sounds he raises,
strings of thoughts come out in knots,
he solves his sentences like mazes.

At night, he writes his thoughts instead
and sighs as they steadily rush from his head.”
Bo Burnham, Egghead: Or, You Can't Survive on Ideas Alone

Jarod Kintz
“Nobody peels a banana before stabbing themselves with it. But that’s exactly how I love—dangerously. 
”
Jarod Kintz, Love quotes for the ages. And the ageless sages.

Jarod Kintz
“They should make bubblegum that tastes like mashed potatoes. You know, for lovers.”
Jarod Kintz, My love can only occupy one person at a time
