Eliezer Yudkowsky
“Why does any kind of cynicism appeal to people? Because it seems like a mark of maturity, of sophistication, like you’ve seen everything and know better. Or because putting something down feels like pushing yourself up.”
Eliezer Yudkowsky, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality

David Foster Wallace
“To be a mass tourist, for me, is to become a pure late-date American: alien, ignorant, greedy for something you cannot ever have, disappointed in a way you can never admit. It is to spoil, by way of sheer ontology, the very unspoiledness you are there to experience, It is to impose yourself on places that in all non-economic ways would be better, realer, without you. It is, in lines and gridlock and transaction after transaction, to confront a dimension of yourself that is as inescapable as it is painful: As a tourist, you become economically significant but existentially loathsome, an insect on a dead thing.”
David Foster Wallace, Consider the Lobster and Other Essays

W.B. Yeats
“The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity.”
W.B. Yeats, The Collected Poems of W.B. Yeats

Gabriel García Márquez
“Wherever they might be they always remember that the past was a lie, that memory has no return, that every spring gone by could never be recovered, and that the wildest and most tenacious love was an ephemeral truth in the end.”
Gabriel García Márquez, One Hundred Years of Solitude

Vikram Seth
“I sometimes seem to myself to wander around the world merely accumulating material for future nostalgias.”
Vikram Seth
