    They say no plan survives first contact with implementation.
  • Rian shared from The Atlantis Gene: A Thriller (The Origin Mystery, Book 1) by A.G. Riddle
    We attack whatever is different, anything we don’t understand, anything that might change our world, our environment, reduce our chances of survival. Racism, class warfare, sexism, east versus west, north and south, capitalism and communism, democracy and dictatorships, Islam and Christianity, Israel and Palestine, they’re all different faces of the same war: the war for a homogeneous human race, an end to our differences.
  • Rian shared from Divergent (Divergent Series) by Veronica Roth
    My father says that those who want power and get it live in terror of losing it. That’s why we have to give power to those who do not want it.
  • Rian shared from The Twelve (Book Two of The Passage Trilogy): A Novel (Book Two of The Passage Trilogy) by Justin Cronin
    It was in the waiting that a person experienced too much of himself. Memories, doubts, regrets, anxieties, the whole range of possibilities the future contained—they all swirled together in the mind like a soup.
  • Rian shared from On Writing Well, 30th Anniversary Edition: An Informal Guide to Writing Nonfiction by William Zinsser
    Most nonfiction writers have a definitiveness complex. They feel that they are under some obligation—to the subject, to their honor, to the gods of writing—to make their article the last word. It’s a commendable impulse, but there is no last word. What you think is definitive today will turn undefinitive by tonight, and writers who doggedly pursue every last fact will find themselves pursuing the rainbow and never settling down to write.
