Friedrich Nietzsche
“When we have to change our mind about a person, we hold the inconvenience he causes us very much against him.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil

David Eagleman
“We believe we're seeing the world just fine until it's called to our attention that we're not.”
David Eagleman, Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain

“It's for us that the University exists, for the dispossessed of the world; not for the students, not for the selfless pursuit of knowledge, not for any of the reasons that you hear. We give out the reasons, and we let a few of the ordinary ones in, those that would do in the world; but that's just protective coloration. Like the church in the Middle Ages, which didn't give a damn about the laity or even about God, we have our pretenses in order to survive. And we shall survive - because we have to.”
John Edward Williams, Stoner

Ayn Rand
“That, precisely, is the deadliness of second-handers. They have no concern for facts, ideas, work. They're concerned only with people. They don't ask: 'Is this true?' They ask: 'Is this what others think is true?' Not to judge, but to repeat. Not to do, but to give the impression of doing. Not creation, but show. Not ability, but friendship. Not merit, but pull. What would happen to the world without those who do, think, work, produce? Those are the egotists. You don't think through another's brain and you don't work through another's hands. When you suspend your faculty of independent judgment, you suspend consciousness. To stop consciousness is to stop life.”
Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

Paul Bowles
“There's something repulsive about an American without money in his pocket.”
Paul Bowles, The Sheltering Sky
