I have a new-found fascination for history and I believe that in the present ideological fight between the left and the right, a lack of historical and political awareness can leave you defenseless. In that vein, I picked a book Philippa Gregory's Tu ...more

Michael Crichton
“Let's be clear. The planet is not in jeopardy. We are in jeopardy. We haven't got the power to destroy the planet - or to save it. But we might have the power to save ourselves.”
Michael Crichton, Jurassic Park

Gillian Flynn
“It’s humbling, to become the very thing you once mocked.”
Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

Salman Rushdie
“Man is the Storytelling Animal, and that in stories are his identity, his meaning, and his lifeblood.”
Salman Rushdie, Luka and the Fire of Life

Salman Rushdie
“The Fire Bug flared up at that. “You want to know what bugs me?” it said indignantly. “Nobodaddy’s friendly about fire. Oh, it’s fine in its place, people say, it makes a nice glow in a room, but keep an eye on it in case it gets out of control, and always put it out before you leave. Never mind how much it’s needed; a few forests burned by wildfires, the occasional volcanic eruption, and there goes our reputation. Water, on the other hand!—hah!—there’s no limit to the praise Water gets. Floods, rains, burst pipes, they make no difference. Water is everyone’s favorite. And when they call it the Fountain of Life!—bah!—well, that just bugs me to bits.” The Fire Bug dissolved briefly into a little cloud of angry, buzzing sparks, then came together again. “Fountain of Life, indeed,” it hissed. “What an idea. Life is not a drip. Life is a flame. What do you imagine the sun is made of? Raindrops? I don’t think so. Life is not wet, young man. Life burns.”
Salman Rushdie, Luka and the Fire of Life

Douglas Adams
“My capacity for happiness," he added, "you could fit into a matchbox without taking out the matches first”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
