“The problem with getting old was that each day had to compete with the thousands of others gone by. How wonderful would a day have to be to win such a beauty contest? To even make it into the finals? Never mind that memory rigged the game, airbrushed the flaws from its contestants, while the present had to shuffle into the spotlight unaided, all pockmarked with mundanities and baggy with annoyances.”
Daryl Gregory, Spoonbenders

“..."I might be entertaining the idea of tamping down my nihilism. Just a bit. Not because life is not meaningless—I think that’s inarguable. It’s just that the constant awareness of its pointlessness is exhausting. I wouldn’t mind being oblivious again. I’d love to feel the wind in my face and think, just for minute, that I’m not going to crash into the rocks.”

“You’re saying you’d like to be happy.”
Daryl Gregory, We Are All Completely Fine

“Pretending to be normal made life so difficult.”
Daryl Gregory, We Are All Completely Fine

Daryl Ah! Got it. You're a better man than I. Maybe I could hire my kids to type in all my books.


Joshua Palmatier Nope, not on a mystery kick. I'm adding books by picking an author and then adding all the books I own by that author to the "shelves" here at Goodreads. Thought of Janet Evanovich, so added all of hers and all of Sue Grafton's.
