"Books are frozen voices, in the same way that musical scores are frozen music. The score is a way of transmitting the music to someone who can play it, releasing it into the air where it can once more be heard. And the black alphabet marks on the page represent words that were once spoken, if only in the writer’s head. They lie there inert until a reader comes along and transforms the letters into living sounds. The reader is the musician of the book: each reader may read the same text, just as each violinist plays the same piece, but each interpretation is different."

"What is an “instant” death anyway? How long is an instant? Is it one second? Ten? The pain of those seconds must have been awful as her heart burst and her lungs collapsed and there was no air and no blood to her brain and only raw panic. What the hell is instant? Nothing is instant. Instant rice takes five minutes, instant pudding an hour. I doubt that an instant of blinding pain feels particularly instantaneous."

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): The first time we meet Aang in episode 1, he is thawed up from an iceberg after 100 years, and the first thing he does is to ask Katara if she will go penguin sledding with him. Aang is always bursting with enthusiasm, seeing the funny/positive in every situation,…

"I think that most of us, anyway, read these stories that we know are not ‘true’ because we’re hungry for another kind of truth: the mythic truth about human nature in general, the particular truth about those life-communities that define our own identity, and the most specific truth of all: our own self-story. Fiction, because it is not about someone who lived in the real world, always has the possibility of being about oneself."

‘And are you?’
‘No. That’s where it all falls down, of course.’
‘Pity,’ said Arthur with sympathy. ‘It sounded like quite a good life-style otherwise.’"

In 1973, Hannah Arendt became the first woman to speak at the prestigious Gifford Lectures — an annual series established in 1888 aiming “to promote and diffuse the study of natural theology in the widest sense of the term,” bridging science, philosophy, and spirituality. Titled The Life of the Mind, her lecture, later expanded into a book, is a spectacular meditation on thinking vs. knowing and the difference between truth and meaning.
