Being past the time of miracles, even gadgets are now too external to modify our afflictions of vision; a drug is necessary to ease our senses into becoming receptive to grace. Truth no longer free to bypass the laws of physics or wait for us to tamper with them, it flashes itself before us in bursts brief enough for our attention spans to linger on its appearance. Not only the conversion of a nation to Belief, but its resilience in the face of decline, should make a simplification to miracles once again necessary."

Trigonometry and calculus would not help them find their way among the mountain trails. Adam Smith's economics were of no consequence in the matter of planting corn and breeding cattle. Nor did they need the essays of Plato or the plays of Shakespeare to teach them how to shoot a rifle, or to make clothes from animal skins, or to clear away the wilderness with their own bare hands."

25. "Some team! The Chief was doing so many jobs alone. I'd fix on the Chief's raw, rope-burned palms or all the gray hairs collected in his sink, and I'd suffer this terrible side pain that Kiwi said was probably an ulcer and Ossie diagnosed as lovesickness. Or rather a nausea produced by the "black fruit" of love—a terror that sprouted out of your love for someone like rotting oranges on a tree branch. Osceola knew all about this black fruit, she said, because she'd grown it for our mother, our father, Grandpa Sawtooth, even me and Kiwi. Loving a ghost was different, she explained—that kind of love was a bare branch. I pictured this branch curving inside my sister: something leafless and complete, elephantine, like a white tusk. No rot, she was saying, no fruit. You couldn't lose a ghost to death."

30. "My story is about all I got to my name right now, and that's why I feel robbed. But a story's a whole lot more than most people got. All you people watching out there, you're listening to what I say because I have something you don't: I got plot. Bought and paid for. That's what all you people want, and why you're sucking off me. You want my plot. I know how you feel too, since hey, I used to feel the same way. TV and video games and movies and computer screens... On April 8th, 1999, I jumped into the screen, I switched to watchee. Ever since, I've known what my life is about. I give good story. It may have been kinda gory, but admit it, you all loved it. You ate it up. Nuts, I ought to be on some government payroll.

40. "Günah islemek vesilesi, nadiren elimize geçer, en faziletkâr adamlarin bile, hayatta bekledikleri sey bu firsattir. Bana günahsiz bir zevk gösteremezsin. Mânevîlerini bir tarafa at. Saadet ve günah, ayni mahiyetin iki türlü ismidir. Kendini iyice yokla, günahsiz geçirdigin günlere yanarsin. Ihtiyarligin en büyük aczi, artik günah islemeye tâkati kalmamasidir. Zevk, tabiyatin seciyesidir. Zekânin yaratici bir kuvvet olmaktan çikmasi, vücûdun arzularina muhalefet etmesinden ileri geliyor. Istedigin herseyi yap ve yapabilecegin seyi iste, hiçbir kaideye kulak asma. Yasamanin sirri budur!"

And in each plane of stillness is the moment of clarity that makes you responsible for what you do."

I know you probably changed your mind. But you should know, the answer was yes. It's always been yes when it comes to you." He was very quiet for a moment. "Where are you?"
