"What’s old doesn’t need to be old-fashioned. It gets reborn."
— John Jeremiah Sullivan (via millionsmillions)
"The future of the human race is something we ought to take seriously, since despite all the fortunes spent on those giant space-monitoring radio dishes and the exploratory satellites and whatnot, there exists not a shred of conclusive evidence to contradict the rational assumption that away from this blue ball we live on, the universe is an infinity of unfeeling matter. So let’s keep this thing going, is my take."
— From John Jeremiah Sullivan’s brilliant Violence of the Lambs.
