passionate about ideas. And that's a dangerous person to be in this
society, not just because I'm a woman, but because it's such a
fundamentally anti-intellectual, anti-critical thinking society.
- Bell Hooks
Franz Kafka noted that happiness for him consisted in raising the
world "into the pure, the truth, and the immutable."
Ordinary life does not interest me. I seek only the high moments.
I am in accord with the surrealists, searching for the marvelous.
I want to be a writer who reminds others that these moments exist;
I want to prove that there is infinite space, infinite meaning, infinite
dimension. - Anais Nin
