Dave Eggers
printer friendly version
"Revelation is everything, not for its own sake, because most
self-revelation is just garbage -- oop! -- yes, but we have to
purge the garbage, toss it out, throw it into a bunker and burn it,
because it is fuel. And what do we do with fossil fuel? Why,
we dump it into a bunker and burn it, of course. No, we don't
do that. But you get my meaning. It's endlessly renewable,
usable without diminishing one's capacity to create more."

(from "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," 2000)
