“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”
— Friedrich Nietzsche (via arzitekt)

"The Tree of Virtues," c. 1250, from The Book of Trees – Manuel Lima’s spectacular 800-year history of visualizing science, spirituality, and human knowledge in symbolic tree diagrams.

such a great post to show up on my dashboard, as I am reading Deborah Harkness’ Book of Life right now. I am handling the spirituality and knowledge part ok, but I am reading the genetics materials slowly and carefully. Love this book.

When old age shall this generation waste,

Thou shalt remain, in midst of other woe 

Than ours, a friend to man, to whom thou say’st,

'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all 

 Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.’

              “Ode on a Grecian Urn”

                          John Keats

The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry? 

My library card already gets me multiple “real” books, e-books, audiobooks, magazines and movies per month. For free.

Kindle Unlimited offers nothing from big presses, and no guarantee the authors will get paid fairly for their work. Libraries buy the book up front for a higher price (and a better binding). Kindle Unlimited offers the authors a variable percentage of a as-yet-undetermined-and-unannounced amount of money. 

While Amazon touts Kindle Unlimited at “Netflix For Books!” the reality is Netflix signed contracts with everyone whose work they offer so that actors, screen writers, best boys, and the rest of those people get paid for the shows and movies you watch. Amazon does not.

That means your favorite author isn’t being compensated for their time or work. If you love a book series and want to see the next one get published: buy the book or hit the library. Starving authors quit writing because they like eating.

Yup. Who are they making movies for, exactly? rottentomatoes:
