Galactic Pot-Healer

Now reading and enjoying:

* What ties me here? he asked himself. The known, he decided. The fact that I am used to it. You can get used to anything, and even learn to like it. Pavlov's theory of learned reflex is correct; I am held by habit.

* A man is an angel that has become deranged.

* No creature knows itself.

* Maybe he's right; maybe even failure is valuable. As he says, it tells us the limit of ourselves; it maps our boundaries.

Philip K. Dick
