David Burr Gerrard
“The things white men failed to notice would fill the world they had ruined ten thousand times over.”
David Burr Gerrard, The Epiphany Machine

M.R. Carey
“The point of history, the very essence of it as a field of study, is to find correspondences. You look at the past so that you can understand it, and through it you come to a better understanding of your own time.”
M.R. Carey, The Boy on the Bridge

David Burr Gerrard
“Maybe Julie, I mean my new Julie, my Jewish Julie, I mean my wife, isn't quite as right for me as the other Julie was. She doesn't challenge me as much, we don't laugh as much, and our sex isn't as good. But this Julie challenges me almost as much, we laugh almost as much, and our sex is...fine. Julie and I might have been a little happier than Julie and I, but Julie and I are still happy.”
David Burr Gerrard, The Epiphany Machine

Jean-François Lyotard
“In his analysis of the sublime effect, Edmund Burke termed 'horror' the state of mind of a person whose participation in speech is threatened. The power which exceeds the capacity of interlocution resembles night.”
Jean-François Lyotard

David Burr Gerrard
“The epiphany machine will not discover anything about you that you do not, in some way, already know. But think for a moment about surprise. What is surprising is never what is revealed but the grace with which it has been hidden.”
David Burr Gerrard, The Epiphany Machine
