Warmdarksky’s Recent Updates

Warmdarksky liked a quote
Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett
“A witch ought never to be frightened in the darkest forest, Granny Weatherwax had once told her, because she should be sure in her soul that the most terrifying thing in the forest was her.”
Terry Pratchett
Warmdarksky liked a quote
The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman
“You are so young, Lyra, too young to understand this, but I shall tell you anyway and you'll understand it later: men pass in front of our eyes like butterflies, creatures of a brief season. We love them; they are brave, proud, beautiful, clever; and they die almost at once. They die so soon that our hearts are continually racked with pain. We bear their children, who are witches if they are female, human if not; and then in the blink of an eye they are gone, felled, slain, lost. Our sons, too. When a little boy is growing, he thinks he is immortal. His mother knows he isn't. Each time becomes more painful, until finally your heart is broken. Perhaps that is when Yambe-Akka comes for you. She is older than the tundra. Perhaps, for her, witches' lives are as brief as men's are to us.”
Philip Pullman

Gloomier with increased attention to mental illness as subject matter. But free of the stupid bank heist premise, the plot really takes off. Love it, will read more.

John Berger
“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.”
John Berger, Ways of Seeing

Kurt Vonnegut
“They had managed to convert their wealth, which had originally been in the form of factories or stores or other demanding enterprises, into a form so liquid and abstract, negotiable representations of money on paper, that there were few reminders coming from anywhere that they might be responsible for anyone outside their own circle of friends and relatives.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Hocus Pocus

Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz
“The most daring flights of genius do not always soar assured when they seek a throne in the fire & find a grave in copious tears.

For knowledge is also a vice: if it is not constantly curbed, & if this is not acknowledged, the greater the havoc it wreaks;

& if the flight is not brought down, fed & fattened on subtleties it will forget the essential for the sake of the rare & strange.

If a skilled hand does not prevent the growth of a thickly leafed tree, its proliferating branches will steal the fruit.”
Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz

Kurt Vonnegut
“Another flaw in the human character is that everybody wants to build and nobody wants to do maintenance.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Hocus Pocus

Neal Stephenson
“We ignore the blackness of outer space and pay attention to the stars, especially if they seem to order themselves into constellations. “Common as the air” meant something worthless, but Hackworth knew that every breath of air that Fiona drew, lying in her little bed at night, just a silver flow in the moonlight, was used by her body to make skin and hair and bones. The air became Fiona, and deserving—no, demanding—of love. Ordering matter was the sole endeavor of Life, whether it was a jumble of self-replicating molecules in the primordial ocean, or a steam-powered English mill turning weeds into clothing, or Fiona lying in her bed turning air into Fiona.”
Neal Stephenson, The Diamond Age: Or, A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer
