A Quote from Current Reading: Generosity by Richard Powers

“From where I sit, the whole human race did something stupid when young–pulled some playful stunt that damages someone. The secret of survival is forgetting. If evolution favored conscience, everything with a backbone would have hanged itself from the ceiling fan eons ago, and invertebrates would once again be running the place.” – Richard Powers, Generosity, pp. 19, Farrar, Straus, and Giroux. 2009
