October 25, 2010 at 9:05 am (Quotes) (, )

“[My father] still spent the better part of four decades trying to come to terms with just how screwed up and unfair it is that we only get to do this all once, with the intractability and general awfulness of trying to parse the idea of once, trying to get any kind of handle on it, trying to put it into the equations, isolate into a variable the slippery concept of onceness.”

–Charles Yu
(Charles Yu, How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe)
