It was shallow thinking to maintain that numbers and charts were the cold compression of unruly human energies, every sort of yearning and midnight sweat reduced to lucid units in the financial markets. "In fact data itself was soulful and glowing, a dynamic aspect of the life process. This was the eloquence of alphabets and numeric systems, now fully realized in electronic form, in the zero-oneness of the world, the digital imperative that defined every breath of the planet's living billions. Here was the heave of the biosphere. Our bodies and oceans were here, knowable and whole."

This economist is a winter fool."

162. "Liberals think their campaign against Wal-Mart is a way of introducing the subject of class into America's political argument, and they are more correct than they understand. Their campaign is liberalism as condescension. It is a philosophic repugnance toward markets, because consumer sovereignty results in the masses making messes.

177. "Es una ilusión ingenua creer que nuestra imagen no es más que una apariencia tras la cual está escondido nuestro yo como la única esencia verdadera, independientemente de los ojos del mundo. Los imagólogos han descubierto con cínico radicalismo que es precisamente todo lo contrario: nuestro yo es una mera apariencia, inaprehensible, nebulosa, mientras que la única realidad, demasiado aprehensible y descriptible, es nuestra imagen a los ojos de los demás.

Viata lui nu are decît un sens, sa creeze gogoasa în care moare. Opera lui este chiar mormântul lui."

Eric was holding my hands, and I was digging my nails into him like we were doing something else. He won't mind, I though, as I realized I'd drawn blood. And sure enough, he didn't. "Let go," he advised me, and I loosened my grip on his hands. "No, not of me," he said smiling. "You can hold on to me as long as you want."
