I mean, I have no idea what I'd think now, but when I read these books as a tween, I loved everything that Burroughs wrote, and the Venus books were among my favorites.

Lots of good stuff in this one, from the fabulous quote from architect Daniel Burnham, driving force behind the 1892 Chicago World's Fair, "Make no small plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood" to such lovely period details as Susan B. Anthony ...more

“Money is like gasoline during a road trip. You don’t want to run out of gas on your trip, but you’re not doing a tour of gas stations.”
Tim O'Reilly

“Pursue something so important that even if you fail, the world is better off with you having tried.”
Tim O'Reilly

“The nice thing about twitter is the architecture of visibility. Email is invisible unless you reach out to someone directly. With Twitter, anyone can follow you and this is one of the big changes that was really introduced by Flickr, was this wonderful idea that you can follow somebody without their permission. Recognizing that relationships are asymmetrical, unlike facebook where we have to acknowledge each other otherwise we can’t see each other.”

“My own eyes are not enough for me; I will see through those of others.”
C.S. Lewis

“Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“All it takes is a belief that people are fundamentally good—and enough courage to treat your people like owners instead of machines. Machines do their jobs; owners do whatever is needed to make their companies and teams successful. People spend”
Laszlo Bock, Work Rules!: Insights from Inside Google That Will Transform How You Live and Lead

“A man breaking his journey between one place and another at a third place of no name, character, population or significance, sees a unicorn cross his path and disappear. That in itself is startling, but there are precedents for mystical encounters of various kinds, or to be less extreme, a choice of persuasions to put it down to fancy; until--"My God," says a second man, "I must be dreaming, I thought I saw a unicorn." At which point, a dimension is added that makes the experience as alarming as it will ever be. A third witness, you understand, adds no further dimension but only spreads it thinner, and a fourth thinner still, and the more witnesses there are the thinner it gets and the more reasonable it becomes until it is as thin as reality, the name we give to the common experience... "Look, look!" recites the crowd. "A horse with an arrow in its forehead! It must have been mistaken for a deer.”
Tom Stoppard, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

“The saints are the sinners who keep on trying.”
Robert Louis Stevenson
