1. "Our days flowed around well-charted, often traveled courses, and yet, the underlying sense of falling out of time, out of the trajectory of one's life, not by choice, but by subtraction, was frequent and disquieting. Then I grieved for him, for the lost and previous Paul. He grieved for that man too. Both our griefs were mainly private, internal, unuttered. Return was impossible, and there was only one direction open ; and so we kept our compass pointed forward. [p. 286]"
Author: Diane Ackerman
2. "This is what is meant by the phenomenology of the science-making process: Self-observation always leads us to an existential point about the metaphysics of experience, and it is almost always a transforming moment. (p. 286)"
Author: Eugene Taylor
3. "The fondest dream of the information age is to create an archive of all knowledge. You might call it the Alexandrian fantasy, after the great library founded by Ptolemy I in 286 BC."
Author: Gary Wolf
4. "Listen--God only exists in people's minds. Especially in Japan, God's always been kind of a flexible concept. Look at what happened after the war. Douglas MacArthur ordered the divine emperor to quit being God, and he did, making a speech saying he was just an ordinary person. So after 1946 he wasn't God anymore. That's what Japanese gods are like--they can be tweaked and adjusted. Some American comping on a cheap pipe gives the order and presto change-o--God's no longer God. A very postmodern kind of thing. If you think God's there, He is. If you don't, He isn't.~pages 286-287"
Author: Haruki Murakami
5. "IF SOME PREACHER'S AN ASSHOLE, THAT'S NOT PROOF THAT GOD DOESN'T EXIST! (page 286)"
Author: John Irving

Today's Quote

Jest upalny letni wtorek. Stoi na placu przed dworcem Centraal, ma wlaczone galki oczne. Kanal skrzy sie sloncem, wokól smigaja skutery i rowerzysci-kamikadze, ze wszystkich stron trajkoca turysci. Plac pachnie woda, ziemia, rozgrzanym metalem i spalinami z zimnych katalizatorów, jak pierdnieciem; w tle podzwaniaja tramwaje, nad glowa fruwaja ptaki."
Author: Charles Stross
