  • Twittarr shared from The Martian: A Novel by Andy Weir
    The cost for my survival must have been hundreds of millions of dollars. All to save one dorky botanist. Why bother? Well, okay. I know the answer to that. Part of it might be what I represent: progress, science, and the interplanetary future we’ve dreamed of for centuries. But really, they did it because every human being has a basic instinct to help each other out. It might not seem that way sometimes, but it’s true. If a hiker gets lost in the mountains, people will coordinate a search. If a train crashes, people will line up to give blood. If an earthquake levels a city, people all over...
    Note: My favorite paragraph from The Martian is in the trailer, but didn't make it into the movie.

  • Twittarr shared from The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
    The pair last year were two kids from the Seam who’d never, not one day of their lives, had enough to eat. And when they did have food, table manners were surely the last thing on their minds. Peeta’s a baker’s son. My mother taught Prim and me to eat properly, so yes, I can handle a fork and knife.
    Note: In the world of District 12, Katniss perceives a baker as being from an upper strata. Wow.

    The woods always look different at night. Even with the glasses, everything has an unfamiliar slant to it. As if the daytime trees and flowers and stones had gone to bed and sent slightly more ominous versions of themselves to take their places.
    Note: This is how the kids feel on night walks at Balarat: "The woods always look different at night. Even with the glasses, everything has an unfamiliar slant to it.

  • Twittarr shared from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
    I didn’t want to take the elevator because taking the elevator is a Last Days kind of activity at Support Group, so I took the stairs.
    Note: Extra motivation for me to take the stairs whenever I can. Whenever I could last week, I went up and down the little stairs in the PT room whenever I could. I've lost my stair legs on a couple previous hospitalization which bites because my house is pretty much all stairs.
