Myths and realities


“There is a continuous dialectic interplay between the mind and its environment, and … our perceptions of objects and events are no less a part of consciousness than are our fantasies.”

Henry Nash Smith, Virgin Land: The American West as Symbol and Myth, (Cambridge: Harvard UP, 2005), viii.


“You can boast your magnificent lawn and spacious rooms, but face it—you live in the Quad. You will psyche yourself out that it’s not so bad, but on that occasional night where you’re standing around freezing at 3:30am, you’ll think about the hundreds of hours you light on fire because of living in the Quad and you’ll shed a little tear for the cold arbitrariness of life.”

June Wu, FlyByBlog
