“As a child I assumed that when I reached adulthood, I would have grown-up thoughts.”
David Sedaris, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls

David Sedaris
“States vote to take away my marriage rights, and even though I don't want to get married, it tends to hurt my feelings. I guess what bugs me is that it was put to a vote in the first place. If you don't want to marry a homosexual, then don't. But what gives you the right to weigh in on your neighbor's options? It's like voting whether or not redheads should be allowed to celebrate Christmas.”
David Sedaris, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls

“Most of you will have heard the maxim "correlation does not imply causation." Just because two variables have a statistical relationship with each other does not mean that one is responsible for the other. For instance, ice cream sales and forest fires are correlated because both occur more often in the summer heat. But there is no causation; you don't light a patch of the Montana brush on fire when you buy a pint of Haagan-Dazs.”
Nate Silver, The Signal and the Noise: Why So Many Predictions Fail - But Some Don't

Jeanette Winterson
“What is luck', he said, 'but the ability to exploit accidents?”
Jeanette Winterson, The Passion

Will Schwalbe
“Reading isn't the opposite of doing, it's the opposite of dying.”
