Sridhar shared a quote
L'Herbe des nuits by Patrick Modiano
“The other day, I happened to walk through it. I had a strange sensation. Not that time had passed, but that another me, a twin, was prowling around there -- down to the smallest detail, and until the end of time -- through what I had experienced over a very short period.”
Patrick Modiano

“Ideas and statutes that live only in disembodied intellect are fragile, easily manipulated by both sides in a debate. This is as true of European "sustainability" regulations as it is for Amazonian súmac káusai removed from its forest home. Knowledge gained through extended bodily relationship with the forest, including the forest's human communities, is more robust.
... There is truth that cannot be accessed through intellect alone, especially intellect that is not aware of local ecological variations.”
David George Haskell, The Songs of Trees: Stories from Nature's Great Connectors

Nirmal Verma
“It was like an invisible fire that we could feel, that had been trying to pierce through our mutual darkness. It struck me that each of us is a darkness for the other. Three days or three years don’t make a difference unless we can catch hold of a burning moment in the darkness, knowing full well that it won’t last and after it is extinguished we will slide back into our own chilling solitude.”
Nirmal Verma, Days of Longing

Jeanette Winterson
“There is a further trouble; no matter how meticulous the scientist, he or she cannot be separated from the experiment itself. Impossible to detach the observer from the observed. A great deal of scientific truth has later turned out to be its observer's fiction. It is irrational to assume that this is no longer the case.”
Jeanette Winterson, Art and Lies

Nirmal Verma
“Happiness always takes us by surprise, or perhaps it is not happiness. It is one’s unhappiness diminished in size.”
Nirmal Verma, Days of Longing

“Bird memories are therefore a tree's dream of the future.”
David George Haskell, The Songs of Trees: Stories from Nature's Great Connectors
