Book cover for The Power
No one wants to hear about what’s happening here. The truth has always been a more complex commodity than the market can easily package and sell. And now the weather on the ones.
Terrifying, thought-provoking .
Neil deGrasse Tyson
“The universe is under no obligation to make sense to you. —NDT”
Neil deGrasse Tyson, Astrophysics for People in a Hurry

Neil deGrasse Tyson
“The power and beauty of physical laws is that they apply everywhere, whether or not you choose to believe in them. In other words, after the laws of physics, everything else is opinion.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson, Astrophysics for People in a Hurry

Alain de Botton
“We don’t need to be constantly reasonable in order to have good relationships; all we need to have mastered is the occasional capacity to acknowledge with good grace that we may, in one or two areas, be somewhat insane.”
Alain de Botton, The Course of Love

James Baldwin
“A civilization is not destroyed by wicked people; it is not necessary that people be wicked but only that they be spineless.”
James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time

James Baldwin
“For this is your home, my friend, do not be driven from it; great men have done great things here, and will again, and we can make America what America must become. It will be hard, James, but you come from sturdy, peasant stock, men who picked cotton and dammed rivers and built railroads, and, in the teeth of the most terrifying odds, achieved an unassailable and monumental dignity.”
James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time
