"9 & 10. Well, it doesn't move quickly and the way it's built isn't graceful but there's something appealing that I remember from back when. Something about the pro-labor, positivity around working and knowing and creating things that really resonates. I see why the libertarian goofs like it." Jan 06, 2023 05:59PM

Howard Norman
“I realize I've sometimes raced over the years like an ice skater fleeing the devil on a frozen river.”
Howard Norman, What Is Left the Daughter

Howard Norman
“Early on, I'd got a sample of how Cornelia Tell questioned all motives for politeness. I'd sat down and said, "Would it be too much trouble if I got a scone with my coffee?"

Howard Norman, What Is Left the Daughter

Wallace Stegner
“Even while you paid attention to what you must do today and tomorrow, you heard the receding sound of what you had relinquished.”
Wallace Stegner, Angle of Repose

Gore Vidal
“I complain about the United States not being Athens. I certainly say we are a very good Roman republic, and the lies are based upon the most advanced techniques of advertising, which is the only art form my country has ever created—the television commercial—and we sell soap and presidents in the same fashion. Once a country is habituated to liars, it takes generations to bring the truth back.”
Gore Vidal, Imperial America: Reflections on the United States of Amnesia

Georgia   Scott
“Before there is science, there are stories to explain the world. They make it happier somehow.”
Georgia Scott, American Girl: Memories That Made Me
