My Struggle by Karl Ove Knausgård
“There was also something panicked about my desire to acquire knowledge, in sudden terrible insights I saw that actually I didn’t know anything and it was urgent, I didn’t have a second to lose. It was almost impossible to adapt this urgency to the slowness that reading required.”
Karl Ove Knausgård

Michael Pollan
“Huston Smith, the scholar of religion, once described a spiritually “realized being” as simply a person with “an acute sense of the astonishing mystery of everything.”
Michael Pollan, How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence

“action without contemplation becomes meaningless, just as contemplation without action becomes purposeless.”
Jennifer Summit, Action versus Contemplation: Why an Ancient Debate Still Matters

Karl Ove Knausgård
“There was also something panicked about my desire to acquire knowledge, in sudden terrible insights I saw that actually I didn’t know anything and it was urgent, I didn’t have a second to lose. It was almost impossible to adapt this urgency to the slowness that reading required.”
Karl Ove Knausgård, My Struggle: Book 5

Amor Towles
“Like all the rest of the world’s warring tribes, these two made their way to New York City and settled side by side. They dwelt in the same neighborhoods and the same narrow cafés, where they could keep a watchful eye on one another. In such close proximity, time slowly strengthened their sentiments while diluting their resolve.”
Amor Towles, Rules of Civility

Neil Postman
“We attend to fragments of events from all over the world because we have multiple media whose forms are well suited to fragmented conversation.”
Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business
