“…And you’re acting like I should be able to read something in your silence. The problem is that speech needs periods of silence to be intelligible, to separate the words and keep it from being a steady drone of noise. To frame it. The opposite is true. To find the meaning in what’s left unsaid, we need words to punctuate it.”
wildbow, Worm

R. Scott Bakker
“To be ignorant and to be deceived are two different things. To be ignorant is to be a slave of the world. To be deceived is to be the slave of another man. The question will always be: Why, when all men are ignorant, and therefore already slaves, does this latter slavery sting us so?”
R. Scott Bakker, The Darkness That Comes Before

Greg Egan
“Death never gave meaning to life: it was always the other way round.”
Greg Egan, Oceanic

Eliezer Yudkowsky
“Every mystery ever solved had been a puzzle from the dawn of the human species right up until someone solved it.”
Eliezer Yudkowsky, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality

“I envy you, that it’s so easy for you to think of things in terms of black and white. I’d like to think I’m a good person, believe it or not. Everything I’ve done, I did because I thought it was right at the time. In hindsight, some of the ends didn’t justify the means, and sometimes there were unforseen consequences.” Like Dinah. “But I don’t think of myself as a bad person.”
wildbow, Worm
