„As a philosophical problem, it comes down to a better way to engage with the passage of time; and I think we're getting close to one, because the imaginative loss of the future is becoming acute.
The most effective political actors on the planet now are people who want to blow themselves up.
These are people who really don't want to get out of the bed in the morning and face another unpredictable day.“

—  Bruce Sterling, in the Long Now talk "The Singularity: Your Future as a Black Hole"<!-- at about 1m14m45s --> (2004).

„People want to get better, but they don't want to change.“

—  Andrew Solomon American journalist 1963
Context: A wise psychiatrist once said to me, "People want to get better, but they don't want to change." But I would propose that it is only by allowing people born with horizontal identities not to change that one allows them to get better. Any of us can be a better version of himself, but none of us can be someone else. Ch. 12 Father, p. 687.
