Carl Sagan
“Science is an attempt, largely successful, to understand the world, to get a grip on things, to get hold of ourselves, to steer a safe course. Microbiology and meteorology now explain what only a few centuries ago was considered sufficient cause to burn women to death.”
Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

Ralph Ellison
“I feel the need to reaffirm all of it, the whole unhappy territory and all the things loved and unloveable in it, for it is all part of me.”
Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man

Ralph Ellison
“And the mind that has conceived a plan of living must never lose sight of the chaos against which that pattern was conceived. That goes for societies as well as for individuals.”
Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man

Khaled Hosseini
“But the game involves only male names. Because, if it's a girl, Laila has already named her”
Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns

Khaled Hosseini
“In the coming days and weeks, Laila would scramble frantically to commit it all to memory, what happened next. Like an art lover running out of a burning museum, she would grab whatever she could--a look, a whisper, a moan--to salvage from perishing to preserve. But time is the most unforgiving of fires, and she couldn't, in the end, save it all.”
Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns
