Quotes from Daniel's Works
"People can't just give up a story. That's what the kids tried to do in the sixties and seventies. They tried to stop living like Takers, but there was no other way for them to live. They failed because you can't just stop being in a story, you have to have another story to be in."
Ishmael nodded. "And if there is such a story, people should hear about it?"
"Yes, they should."
"Do you think they want to hear about it?"
"I don't know. I don't think you can start wanting something till you know it exists."
"The law we've outlined here enables species to liveC enables species to survive, including the human. It won't tell you whether mood-altering drugs should be legalized or not. It won't tell you whether premarital sex is good or bad. It won't tell you whether capital punishment is right or wrong. It will tell you how you have to live if you want to avoid extinction, and that's the first and most fundamental knowledge anyone needs."
