“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Hanging on in Quiet Desperation

“Welcome to End of Life Care Center UK. We'll help you feel nice and cozy while you die. Please deposit your £100 in the Charon Box at the front of the jetway. We've decided that instead of trying to rip you off sneakily, thinking that you, the ignorant American, have no idea what's going on, you should just open your pockets as you exit the plane. All taxis and trains have been fitted with trembling lace curtains for your morbid convenience.”
