Randall Munroe
“But I’ve never seen the Icarus story as a lesson about the limitations of humans. I see it as a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.”
Randall Munroe, What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions

Søren Kierkegaard
“Marry, and you will regret it; don’t marry, you will also regret it; marry or don’t marry, you will regret it either way. Laugh at the world’s foolishness, you will regret it; weep over it, you will regret that too; laugh at the world’s foolishness or weep over it, you will regret both. Believe a woman, you will regret it; believe her not, you will also regret it… Hang yourself, you will regret it; do not hang yourself, and you will regret that too; hang yourself or don’t hang yourself, you’ll regret it either way; whether you hang yourself or do not hang yourself, you will regret both. This, gentlemen, is the essence of all philosophy.”
Søren Kierkegaard

Neal Stephenson
“This Snow Crash thing--is it a virus, a drug, or a religion?”

Juanita shrugs. “What's the difference?”
Neal Stephenson, Snow Crash

Lewis Carroll
“When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more, nor less.”
Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There

James Baldwin
“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read.”
James Baldwin
