A foggy mire

“Trouble is, you’re caught up in the fringes of politics, lad, even if it’s none of your doing, and politics is a foggy mire full of snakes.”

 Robert Jordan, The Eye of the World


“The once-great country into which I’d been born now resembled its former self in name only. It didn’t matter who was in charge. Those people were rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic, and everyone knew it.” Ernest Cline, Ready Player One


“As they say, history does not repeat itself, but it rhymes.” 

Margaret Atwood, The Testaments


“I personally recall that world, which you can only imagine was preferable to this one,” she said. “Eras are conveniences, particularly for those who never experienced them. We carve history from totalities beyond our grasp. Bolt labels on the result. Handles. Then speak of the handles as though they were things in themselves.”

William Gibson, The Peripheral (The Jackpot Trilogy Book 1)
