Book People

From my most recent read, The Rule of Four, by Ian Caldwell and Dustin Thomason:

I'd begun to realize that there was an unspoken prejudice among book-learned people, a secret conviction they all seemed to share, that life as we know it is an imperfect vision of reality, and that only art, like a pair of reading glasses, can correct it.


[Life] made a mockery of the laws they lived by: that every fact can be reinterpreted, that ever ending can be changed.
