Jaron Lanier
“Usually Google has had a way of coming up with the creepier statements, but Facebook has pulled ahead: A recent revision in its statement of purpose includes directives like assuring that “every single person has a sense of purpose and community.”5 A single company is going to see to it that every single person has a purpose, because it presumes that was lacking before. If that is not a new religion, I don’t know what is.”
Jaron Lanier, Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now

Martin Luther King Jr.
“We must come to see that the end we seek is a society at peace with itself, a society that can live with its conscience.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

Hans Christian Andersen
“When the bird of the heart begins to sing, too often will reason stop up her ears.”
Hans Christian Andersen

Bill Bryson

And there I sat for a good few minutes doing nothing at all, not even touching my glass, just savoring the pleasure of sitting down and finding myself in a far country with a glass of beer and cricket on the TV and a roomful of people enjoying the fruits of a prosperous age. I could not have been happier. After”
Bill Bryson, In a Sunburned Country

Patti Smith
“Just come back, I was thinking. You've been gone long enough. Just come back. I will stop traveling; I will wash your clothes.”
Patti Smith, M Train
