Two Good Quotes from 'Lathe of Heaven'

Again as with my last entry, I'm reading through the book called "Lathe of Heaven" by Ursula K. LeGuin about a man whose dreams, if strong enough, can change reality around him.

Anyway, it's a really good book and it makes you really feel deeply that huge things are happening and shifting and all that. But all that aside, i just wanted to share 2 quotes that i read in there - the first one i really relate to (and recently wrote an entry about), and the second one is relevant to today's world (it was written in 1971)

"[He] had a tendancy to assume that people knew what they were doing, perhaps because he generally assumed that he did not." - Pg. 33

"He had grown up in a country run by politicians who sent the pilots to man the bombers to kill the babies to make the world safe for children to grow up in." - Pg. 87
