Michael Connelly
“The setting sun burned the sky pink and orange in the same bright hues as surfers' bathing suits. It was beautiful deception, Bosch thought, as he drove north on the Hollywood Freeway to home. Sunsets did that here. Made you forget it was the smog that made their colors so brilliant, that behind every pretty picture there could be an ugly story.”
Michael Connelly, The Black Echo

Suzanne Finnamore
“God is great and God is good," Lisa says. "But where are the Apache attack helicopters when you need them?”
Suzanne Finnamore, Split: A Memoir of Divorce

Eileen Wilks
“When you slice the truth too thin, you deceive.”
Eileen Wilks

George Orwell
“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.”
George Orwell

Douglas Coupland
“By the age of twenty, you know you're not going to be a rock star. By twenty-five, you know you're not going to be a dentist or any kind of professional. And by thirty, darkness starts moving in- you wonder if you're ever going to be fulfilled, let alone wealthy and successful. By thirty-five, you know, basically, what you're going to be doing for the rest of your life, and you become resigned to your fate...

...I mean, why do people live so long? What could be the difference between death at fifty-five and death at sixty-five or seventy-five or eighty-five? Those extra years... what benefit could they possibly have? Why do we go on living even though nothing new happens, nothing new is learned, and nothing new is transmitted? At fifty-five, your story's pretty much over.”
Douglas Coupland, Player One: What Is to Become of Us
