Living and Dying on the Internet by Alex  Day
"I have never and will never read this book because Alex Day is a manipulative pile of trash that feeds off others suffering and plays the victim in the crimes and actions he has committed.

I’d advise you to not buy this book and give him any attent..." Read more of this review »
Living and Dying on the Internet by Alex  Day
"Alex Day sexually exploited his young fans and continues to portray himself as the victim. I will be unfriending/unfollowing anyone who spends money on this trash. "
Living and Dying on the Internet by Alex  Day
"This is unbelievable. I am genuinely shocked at the gall he has to try and profit off the pain he personally caused so many people. Sure, he can tell his story I guess, he has the right - but this book has an incredible amount of intimate details..." Read more of this review »

David Foster Wallace
“Progressive liberals seem incapable of stating the obvious truth: that we who are well off should be willing to share more of what we have with poor people not for the poor people's sake but for our own; i.e., we should share what we have in order to become less narrow and frightened and lonely and self-centered people.”
David Foster Wallace, Consider the Lobster and Other Essays

David Foster Wallace
“I don't think writers are any smarter than other people. I think they may be more compelling in their stupidity, or in their confusion.”
David Foster Wallace

David Foster Wallace
“The so-called ‘psychotically depressed’ person who tries to kill herself doesn’t do so out of quote ‘hopelessness’ or any abstract conviction that life’s assets and debits do not square. And surely not because death seems suddenly appealing. The person in whom Its invisible agony reaches a certain unendurable level will kill herself the same way a trapped person will eventually jump from the window of a burning high-rise. Make no mistake about people who leap from burning windows. Their terror of falling from a great height is still just as great as it would be for you or me standing speculatively at the same window just checking out the view; i.e. the fear of falling remains a constant. The variable here is the other terror, the fire’s flames: when the flames get close enough, falling to death becomes the slightly less terrible of two terrors. It’s not desiring the fall; it’s terror of the flames. And yet nobody down on the sidewalk, looking up and yelling ‘Don’t!’ and ‘Hang on!’, can understand the jump. Not really. You’d have to have personally been trapped and felt flames to really understand a terror way beyond falling.”

“Lonely people tend, rather, to be lonely because they decline to bear the psychic costs of being around other humans. They are allergic to people. People affect them too strongly.”
David Foster Wallace, A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again: Essays and Arguments

John Green
“The pleasure of remembering had been taken from me, because there was no longer anyone to remember with. It felt like losing your co-rememberer meant losing the memory itself, as if the things we'd done were less real and important than they had been hours before.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
