"...This is a looooong book. 28 *hours* of audiobook. I'm just about three hours in, and it's been slow to hook me, especially after the powerful opening of The Fifth Season. This feels a bit... Icewind Dale: sit in a tavern, have a strange corpse come in, meet some shady people. It's not bad at all, but it feels a bit banal. The story of the main character is beginning now, so maybe things will pick up." 15 hours, 20 min ago

“If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.”

Elizabeth J. Kolodziej
“Yeah, cause that would be a smart choice. So, I should just forget about the whole lying to me thing when you pronounce you will never do it again?”
“Yes.”
“You’d have a better chance getting a donkey to shit gold.”
Elizabeth J. Kolodziej, Witch Devotions

Cornel West
“To be a jazz freedom fighter is to attempt to galvanize and energize world-weary people into forms of organization with accountable leadership that promote critical exchange and broad reflection. The interplay of individuality and unity is not one of uniformity and unanimity imposed from above but rather of conflict among diverse groupings that reach a dynamic consensus subject to questioning and criticism. As with a soloist in a jazz quartet, quintet or band, individuality is promoted in order to sustain and increase the creative tension with the group--a tension that yields higher levels of performance to achieve the aim of the collective project.”
Cornel West, Race Matters
