“This man was a vortex—all rationality was devoured within him,” Dave Eggers.
This was a tough one for us. When we were younger, we used to worry about the condition of our books and about people cracking the spines of our paperbacks.

“Our species doesn’t operate by reality. It operates by stories. Cities are a story. Money is a story. Space was a story, once. A king tells us a story about who we are and why we’re great, and that story is enough to make us go kill people who tell a different story. Or maybe the people kill the king because they don’t like his story and have begun to tell themselves a different one.” ~ Becky Chambers, Record of a Spaceborn Few
