Tom Robbins
“Although the surface of our planet is two-thirds water, we call it the Earth. We say we are earthlings, not waterlings. Our blood is closer to seawater than our bones to soil, but that's no matter. The sea is the cradle we all rocked out of, but it's to dust that we go. From the time that water invented us, we began to seek out dirt. The further we separate ourselves from the dirt, the further we separate ourselves from ourselves. Alienation is a disease of the unsoiled.”
Tom Robbins, Another Roadside Attraction

Conn Iggulden, Conqueror

E.L. Konigsburg
“The way I see it, the difference between farmers and suburbanites is the difference in the way we feel about dirt. To them, the earth is something to be respected and preserved, but dirt gets no respect. A farmer likes dirt. Suburbanites like to get rid of it. Dirt is the working layer of earth, and dealing with dirt is as much a part of farm life as dealing with manure. Neither is user-friendly but both are necessary.”
E.L. Konigsburg, The View from Saturday

“Entitlement is the shovel that digs a grave of greed. And there are those of us who stand at the bottom of such a grave having thrown out the last shovel full of dirt, never realizing that the grave that we’ve dug is our own until the same shovel suddenly starts backfilling the hole.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Awdhesh Singh
“Self-knowledge, which comes from within, gradually change our beliefs and drops those beliefs which are false and stupid. After being cleared off all the dirt acquired by us in the form of second-hand knowledge in our early age, we can directly see the reality, through our own eyes, through our own heart and mind, as our mind gets unconditioned. It is this mind that is rightly compared to God, as such a consciousness is pure, having been cured of all ignorance and darkness and we come close to our true self—Atman or soul.”
Awdhesh Singh, Myths are Real, Reality is a Myth

Nghịch Tử
“So, um… why… did you tried so hard to save me anyway, even after… I made life harder for the both of us?”

Điền Mục’s reply took on a rare serious tone:

“Huh? Oh, because there is a superhero in all of us. We just need the guts to… eh, actually, speaking of ‘guts’…”

He suddenly started rummaging through his backpack, took out an enema pill, pushed it into Vũ Thanh’s palm, and grinned from ear to ear with excitement:

“Hey, so how did the food of the dead taste to you these past few days anyway? Was there any trace of earthworms or dirt in them? Did they taste like they were rotting or decaying in any way? I’ve always wondered but never got a taste myself!”
