I'm reading Player Piano by Kurt Vonnegut right now. Found this gem on p. 84 of the paperback version:
"Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center. Big, undreamed-of things—the people on the edge see them first."
Just wanted to share. Speaks volumes about being as interesting and interested as you can, and not falling into the rut of mainstream thinking (or even worse, a mainstream existence).
Hope you're having a good summer.
