  The Ishmael Community: Exerpts from Daniel Quinn

Quotes from Daniel's Works

Later Adam said, "Sometimes there's no way to move alongside the elements and survive, or the way may be blocked. Then it's time to open yourself to death in the same way you opened yourself to the cold in the little hills. After that, if you survive, you will never again have to be afraid of death, just as now you never will again have to be afraid of the cold."

The Tales of Adam

Among hunter-gatherers, success obviously has nothing to do with money. In the circus, of course, everyone knows the show must make money in order to continue, but it's the circus, not the money, that provides the livelihood. I mean that they don't keep the circus going in order to make money, they make money in order to keep the circus going.
