Michael Pollan
“So that's us: processed corn, walking.”

Neal Stephenson
“The full cosmos consists of the physical stuff and consciousness. Take away consciousness and it's only dust; add consciousness and you get things, ideas, and time.”

Tana French
“What I am telling you, before you begin my story, is this -- two things: I crave truth. And I lie. ”

John Maynard Keynes
“When my information changes, I alter my conclusions. What do you do, sir?”

Being constantly dissatisfied with their homes, their bodies, their décor, their clothes, everything – taking it for granted that that’s the whole point of life. Never to be satisfied. If you are perfectly happy with what you got, especially if what you got isn’t even all the spectacular then you’re dangerous. You’re breaking all the rules. You’re undermining the sacred economy. You’re challenging every assumption that society is built on.”
Tana French, The Likeness
