Christopher  Ryan
“the deepest function of myth, which is to lend narrative order to apparently disconnected bits of information,”
Christopher Ryan, Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What It Means for Modern Relationships

John Irving
“What is hardest to accept about the passage of time is that the people who once mattered the most to us wind up in parentheses.”
John Irving, The Cider House Rules

R. Buckminster Fuller
“We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.”
Buckminster Fuller

Andy Weir
“It’s true, you know. In space, no one can hear you scream like a little girl.”
Andy Weir, The Martian

Philip Pullman
“I thought physics could be done to the glory of God, till I saw there wasn’t any God at all”
Philip Pullman, The Amber Spyglass
