Steven Magee

“The fifth word, “reliability,” had been left off the original Twenty-one-word list, but it should have been. Thanks to increasing dependence on technology, couples with dwindling free time, more and more people have come to conclude that the reliability of a particular product or service is at least as important as its price, and in some circumstances-automobiles, cable television, and personal communication devices to name but three-even more so.”

Hannah Brencher
“I love my generation, but we are flaky sometimes. I’ve had several conversations with people my age who say the reason it’s so tough to build relationships or keep them going is because we come into them with only half of our hearts sometimes. We like to keep one foot out the door in case a better option comes along.
I used to be guilty of this. I would make plans with someone, but I would be flaky about the confirmation. We’d leave the time or the place open-ended. There were plenty of times when, as the meet-up approached, I’d pray that they would duck out. I’m learning you miss out on a lot of things in life when you are indecisive about your yes. Saying yes and following through builds a lot of character. It makes you a reliable person.
I had to place the habit of flakiness—as sacred as it felt to me—on the altar and sacrifice it to the gods of consistency once I decided to stay in Atlanta. Sometimes you don’t even realize how much people need you to show up.”
Hannah Brencher, Come Matter Here: Your Invitation to Be Here in a Getting There World

Will Boast, Daphne: A Novel
