Book cover for Turtles All the Way Down
Davis and I never talked much, or even looked at each other, but it didn’t matter, because we were looking at the same sky together, which is maybe more intimate than eye contact anyway. Anybody can look at you. It’s quite rare to find ...more
Orson Scott Card
“Of course they accused Marcão of having done it without provocation—that’s the way of torturers of every age, to put the blame on the victim, especially when he strikes back.”
Orson Scott Card, Speaker for the Dead

Richard Price
“almost nobody made it out of the game in one piece, and almost everybody thought they would be the exception.”
Richard Price, Clockers

“Note that the best rationalizations are those that have an element of truth. Whether you vote or not will almost certainly have no influence on the outcome of an election. Nor will the amount of carbon you personally put into the atmosphere make a difference in the fate of the planet. And perhaps it really should be up to governments rather than the charities that are soliciting your contributions to feed the hungry and homeless in America or save children around the world from crushing poverty and abuse. But the fact that these statements are true doesn't mean they aren't also rationalizations that you and others use to justify questionable behavior.

This uncomfortable truth is crucial to an understanding of the link between rationalization and evil—an understanding that starts with the awareness that sane people rarely, if ever, act in a truly evil manner unless they can successfully rationalize their actions... [The] process of rationalizing evil deeds committed by whole societies is a collective effort rather than a solely individual enterprise.”
Thomas Gilovich, The Wisest One in the Room: How You Can Benefit from Social Psychology's Most Powerful Insights

Beth  Lewis
“Two dollar a plate or a gram of gold dust,” he snapped like one of them nasty turtles in swamp lakes, and served two more customers while he was talking. “You take silver?” I held up one of them spoons. The man squinted at it then laughed, all high-pitched and mean. “Get out of here, I not a charity!”
Beth Lewis, The Wolf Road

Crystal Woods
“Of all the heartache I will ever know, only some of it will be real. The rest, I will create.”
Crystal Woods, Write like no one is reading 2
