“There are times when friendship feels like running down a hill together as fast as you can, jumping over things, spinning around, and you don't care where you're going, and you don't care where you've come from, because all that matters is speed, and the hands holding your hands.”
M.T. Anderson, Whales on Stilts: M. T. Anderson's Thrilling Tales

“We went to the moon to have fun, but the moon turned out to completely suck.”
M. T. Anderson, Feed

“We Americans are interested only in the consumption of our products. We have no interest in how they are produced, or what happens to them once we discard them, once we throw them away.”
