Dating back to my earliest grad school days, I have made myself responsible for periodically posting a quality quote on the office white board. I don’t know why it’s never occurred to me to make that a regular feature here, especially when I’ve noticed many of our fellow Bloggers doing so. But today I came across a great quote while reading the 2016 novel Heroes of the Frontier. It’s so profoundly appropriate to life in 21st-century America and the phenomenon of fake news that I can’t help but share it.
“This could be the cause of all modern neurosis[;] . . . the fact that we have no immovable identity, no hard facts. That everything we know as foundational truth is subject to change.”
What do y’all think?
