Patrick Rothfuss
“Books are a poor substitute for female companionship, but they are easier to find.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear

Jared Diamond
“Twelve thousand years ago, everybody on earth was a hunter-gatherer; now almost all of us are farmers or else are fed by farmers. The spread of farming from those few sites of origin usually did not occur as a result of the hunter-gatherers' elsewhere adopting farming; hunter-gatherers tend to be conservative.... Instead, farming spread mainly through farmers' outbreeding hunters, developing more potent technology, and then killing the hunters or driving them off of all lands suitable for agriculture.”
Jared Diamond, Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies

Patrick Rothfuss
“It had flaws, but what does that matter when it comes to matters of the heart? We love what we love. Reason does not enter into it. In many ways, unwise love is the truest love. Anyone can love a thing because. That's as easy as putting a penny in your pocket. But to love something despite. To know the flaws and love them too. That is rare and pure and perfect.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear

“A thirty-two-ounce soda and a tank of gas is America distilled to its seminal fluids.”
Richard Manning, Against the Grain: How Agriculture Has Hijacked Civilization

Patrick Rothfuss
“That is how heavy a secret can become. It can make blood flow easier than ink.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear
