Joseph’s Recent Updates

Joseph MacKinnon is now friends with Peter Legg
Orthodoxy by G.K. Chesterton
“Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, "Do it again"; and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, "Do it again" to the sun; and every evening, "Do it again" to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.”
G.K. Chesterton
“You're going to pay a price for every bloody thing you do and everything you don't do. You don't get to choose to not pay a price. You get to choose which poison you're going to take. That's it.”
Jordan B. Peterson

“He is an electric ghost painted in the colours of a dead moment.”
Joseph MacKinnon, Cypulchre

“In the CLOUD, reflections mirror reflections, cutting out the object and leaving only infinite emptiness.”
Joseph MacKinnon, Cypulchre

“The last few days have already taken their toll - knocking him around like a pinball in a scoreless game.”
Joseph MacKinnon, Cypulchre

“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.”
George Orwell, 1984

“Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation, by children being taught mathematical concepts... A graphic representation of data abstracted from banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding...”
William Gibson, Neuromancer

“Southern California doesn't know whether to bustle or just strangle itself on the spot.”
Neal Stephenson, Snow Crash

“There are more kinds of fools than one can guard against.”
Joseph Conrad, The Secret Agent

“I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Player Piano
