"A great novel! All the Kafkaesque tropes are present in this novel too: the unending staircase to an attic, a cramped apartment with barely human occupants, the suffocation conveyed through quick, packed prose that is bursting at the seams with information.

I hope to dive deeper into all of Kafka's work in the near future."

"A detailed retelling of the opiod crisis, how it came to the forefront, and why "sustained outrage" is the only way to do useful journalism." Jun 28, 2021 04:23AM

Gillian Flynn
“I waited patiently - years - for the pendulum to swing the other way, for men to start reading Jane Austen, learn how to knit, pretend to love cosmos, organize scrapbook parties, and make out with each other while we leer. And then we'd say, Yeah, he's a Cool Guy.”
Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

Charlotte Brontë
“I skirted fields, and hedges, and lanes till after sunrise. I believe it was a lovely summer morning: I know my shoes, which I had put on when I left the house, were soon wet with dew. But I looked neither to rising sun, nor smiling sky, nor wakening nature. He who is taken out to pass through a fair scene to the scaffold, thinks not of the flowers that smile on his road, but of the block and axe-edge; of the disseverment of bone and vein; of the grave gaping at the end: and I thought of drear flight and homeless wandering --- and oh! with agony I thought of what I left.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Mark Twain
“It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want—oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”
Mark Twain

Dante Gabriel Rossetti
“Love, which is quickly kindled in the gentle heart, seized this man for the fair form that was taken from me, the manner still hurts me. Love which absolves no beloved one from loving, seized me so strongly with his charm that, as thou seest, it does not leave me yet”
Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Pre-Raphaelite Poetry: An Anthology

Nassim Nicholas Taleb
“Learn to read history, get all the knowledge you can, do not frown on the anecdote, but do not draw any causal links, do not try to reverse engineer too much -- but if you do, do not make big scientific claims.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb, The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable
