  • Sean shared from The Annihilation Score (A Laundry Files Novel) by Charles Stross
    The Director’s throne is a high-end piece of Herman Miller sculpture: all resin and chrome, it looks as if it was designed by H. R. Giger. I check it carefully for teeth and ovipositors before I dare to sit on it.
    Note: I want this chair.
  • Sean shared from The Incrementalists by Steven Brust, Skyler White
    Short version: It doesn’t matter how many bad decisions you’ve just made, your job is to make the next one correct.
    Note: Good generic rule.
  • Sean shared from How Green This Land, How Blue This Sea: A Newsflesh Novella by Mira Grant
    That no one could ever go there without saying, ‘Oh, how green this land, oh, how blue this sea; I must have lived a very good life to be allowed to come to such a paradise.’”
  • Sean shared from Divergent (Divergent Trilogy, Book 1) by Veronica Roth
    “Why? Why do they care about my intentions?” “Intentions are the only thing they care about. They try to make you think they care about what you do, but they don’t. They don’t want you to act a certain way. They want you to think a certain way. So you’re easy to understand. So you won’t pose a threat to them.”
    Note: Why they care about your intentions.

    gods exist, it’s our job to uninvent them. We’ll take away their divinity and say to them, <I hope you brought enough for everybody.>>
