“The American monsters usually are stand-ins for Cold War enemies. Godzilla is not really a stand-in for America. It is more of an indictment of the nuclear age. And Honda's hope was that somehow this film would inspire people to think about disarmament. I think today if he were still alive, he'd be very disappointed that, you know, nuclear weapons are possessed by more nations than ever before.” #steveryfle #npr #socobooks #dracula #godzilla #monsterseries #hondaishirō

“I believe that reading and writing are the most nourishing forms of meditation anyone has so far found. By reading the writings of the most interesting minds in history, we meditate with our own minds and theirs as well. This to me is a miracle.” #KurtVonnegut #PalmSunday #autographed #socobooks #autobiography #collage #vonnegut #fatesworththandeath

“If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn’t brood. I’d type a little faster.” #isaacasimov “For it would seem—her case proved it—that we write, not with the fingers, but with the whole person. The nerve which controls the pen winds itself about every fibre of our being, threads the heart, pierces the liver.” #VirginiaWoolf #Orlando
