This was a bit harder to read & figure out. I went in with no context and so spent most of the book wondering, is this satire? Or...? And then I felt a bit dumb when I read up on it after finishing it. Anyways. I'm definitely glad I read it, but ...more

Howard Zinn
“But there is no such thing as a pure fact, innocent of interpretation. Behind every fact presented to the world - by a teacher, a writer, anyone - is a judgement. The judgement that has been made is that this fact is important, and that other facts, omitted, are not important.”
Howard Zinn, A People's History of the United States

Frank Herbert
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune

Ernest Cline
“Whenever I saw the sun, I reminded myself that I was looking at a star. One of over a hundred billion in our galaxy. A galaxy that was just one of billions of other galaxies in the observable universe. This helped me keep things in perspective.”
Ernest Cline, Ready Player One

Mark Twain
“All right, then, I'll go to hell.”
Mark Twain, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Howard Zinn
“The cry of the poor is not always just, but if you don't listen to it, you will never know what justice is.”
Howard Zinn, A People's History of the United States
