Normal is nothing more than a cycle on a washing machine.
Whoopi Goldberg

Fiction is a kind of compassion-generating machine that saves us from sloth. Is life kind or cruel? Yes, Literature answers. Are people good or bad? You bet, says Literature. But unlike other systems of knowing, Literature declines to eradicate one truth in favor of another.
George Saunders

Jean-Francois Lyotard
