Stefan Molyneux
“There is nothing that is going to make people hate you more, and love you more, than telling the truth.”
Stefan Molyneux

Raymond Carver

So early it's still almost dark out.
I'm near the window with coffee,
and the usual early morning stuff
that passes for thought.

When I see the boy and his friend
walking up the road
to deliver the newspaper.

They wear caps and sweaters,
and one boy has a bag over his shoulder.
They are so happy
they aren't saying anything, these boys.

I think if they could, they would take
each other's arm.
It's early in the morning,
and they are doing this thing together.

They come on, slowly.
The sky is taking on light,
though the moon still hangs pale over the water.

Such beauty that for a minute
death and ambition, even love,
doesn't enter into this.

Happiness. It comes on
unexpectedly. And goes beyond, really,
any early morning talk about it.”
Raymond Carver

Raymond Carver
“You've got to work with your mistakes until they look intended. Understand?”
Raymond Carver, Cathedral

Isaac Asimov
“It is amazing to me that I continued writing. I can only explain it by my experience in later life. When I have felt depressed and unhappy, the only anodyne I had (since I have never smoked, drunk, or drugged) was to write.”
Isaac Asimov, I. Asimov: A Memoir

Raymond Carver
“and it ought to make us feel ashamed when we talk like we know what we're talking about when we talk about love.”
Raymond Carver, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love
