“An open mind is like to an open wound. Vulnerable to poison. Liable to fester. Apt to give its owner only pain.”
Joe Abercrombie, Before They Are Hanged

Thomas Ligotti
“One cringes to hear scientists cooing over the universe or any part thereof like schoolgirls over-heated by their first crush. From the studies of Krafft-Ebbing onward, we know that it is possible to become excited about anything—from shins to shoehorns.

Thomas Ligotti, The Conspiracy Against the Human Race
