  The Ishmael Community: Exerpts from Daniel Quinn

Quotes from Daniel's Works

Programs make it possible to look busy and purposeful while failing.

Beyond Civilization

"I'm going to give you two rules of thumb by which you can identify the people of your culture. Here's one of them. You'll know you're among the people of your culture if the food is all owned, if it's all under lock and key."

"Hmmmm," I said. "It's hard to imagine it being any other way."

"But of course it once was another way. It was once no more owned than the air or the sunshine are owned."
