Amazed by all these insta-poets with hundreds of thousands of followers who think they've thought of something unique for the first time in human existence without reading or respecting what's come before them.
Nothing unique in it. It's all been said

Great intentions, but most of this has been said before. There isn't really much in the way of original thought. Rather, it is a well curated op-ed of others ideas. 2.5 for me (given it a 3 to not seem like a complete bitch).
Darby Hudson and 9 other people liked Trudie's review of Cicada:
Cicada by Shaun Tan
"Ahhhh.
I love Shaun Tan but this one was a massive disappointment. It looks as you would expect, bleakly gorgeous. But it takes about one minute to read and lacks much of the charm and depth of all his other works. Back to reread the The Red Tree ..." Read more of this review »

Written as a 12 year old, things pass by - unfettered and unjudged by adult Justin. So sometimes something quite profound may pass by if you're not paying attention.

I think this may be the first pop-culture book to unearth an area that's not really t

“Reading is like thinking, like praying, like talking to a friend, like expressing your ideas, like listening to other people's ideas, like listening to music, like looking at the view, like taking a walk on the beach.”

David Mitchell
“People pontificate, "Suicide is selfishness." Career churchmen like Pater go a step further and call in a cowardly assault on the living. Oafs argue this specious line for varying reason: to evade fingers of blame, to impress one's audience with one's mental fiber, to vent anger, or just because one lacks the necessary suffering to sympathize. Cowardice is nothing to do with it - suicide takes considerable courage. Japanese have the right idea. No, what's selfish is to demand another to endure an intolerable existence, just to spare families, friends, and enemies a bit of soul-searching.”
David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

Alan W. Watts
“We seldom realize, for example that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society.”

“This is the real secret of life -- to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.”

“Certain experiences you can't survive, and afterward you don't fully exist, even if you failed to die.”
Nic Pizzolatto, Galveston

Nic Pizzolatto
“I've found that all weak people share a basic obsession - they fixate on the idea of satisfaction. Anywhere you go men and women are like crows drawn by shiny objects. For some folks, the shiny objects are other people, and you'd be better off developing a drug habit.”
Nic Pizzolatto, Galveston
