Mark Leyner
“Any asshole with a Masters in Social Work can put on a turban and start issuing fatwas about whom you can and whom you can't mail meat to, but it takes real balls to turn a brunette without a cranium into a blond.”
Mark Leyner, The Tetherballs of Bougainville

N.T. Wright
“Our philosophies have tended to split the world in two: “science” deals only with “hard facts,” while the “arts” are imagined to deal in nebulous questions of inner meanings. Equally, in popular culture, inner feelings and motivations (“ discovering who you really are” or “going with your heart”) are regularly invoked as the true personal reality over against mere outward “identities.”
N.T. Wright, Paul: A Biography

John M. Sheehan
“Shores of life are truly the safer way but the deep waters test the faith be it man-made or God-given”
John M. Sheehan, Walking In The Newness Of Christ: Born Again Devotional [Print Replica]

Mark Kurlansky
“At the beginning of the twentieth century, a French monk, Marcel Audiffren, invented the world’s first electric-powered household refrigerator”
Mark Kurlansky, Milk!: A 10,000-Year Food Fracas

Sean A. Culey
“My dogs might believe, in their little doggy brains, that they wield the power in our relationship because I feed them, pet them, come when they bark, pick up their poop, buy them toys and care for them when they are sick. However, if they ever decided to act on their beliefs and try to exert power over me or my family, then their true place in the relationship would quickly become apparent. Likewise, we may feel confident that we are the master of our AI creations, only to be taken completely by surprise when we realise – too late – that we are no longer in control.”
Sean A. Culey, Transition Point: From Steam to the Singularity
