Reflection - Quotes That Ring

composed quotes and reflection on Dave Eggers' The Circle

“Who else but utopians could make utopia?”

“ALL THAT HAPPENS MUST BE KNOWN. Folks, we’re at the dawn of the Second Enlightenment.” “…transparency leads to peace of mind.” “TruYou — one account, one identity, one password, one payment system, per person… The era of false identities, identity theft, multiple user names, complicated passwords and payment systems was over… This is ultimate transparency. No filter. See everything. Always.” “We will become all-seeing, all-knowing.” “TO HEAL WE MUST KNOW. TO KNOW WE MUST SHARE.”

“It becomes like we’re never alone.”

“The Circle was a company popular on both sides of the aisle, known for its pragmatic positions on virtually every political issue, for its generous donations.. It seemed insane to punish the company for its efficiency, for its attention to detail. For succeeding.” “They got things done, and with spectacular speed and efficiency.” “…saying that everyone should have a right to know everything, and should have thetools to know anything.” “A circle is the strongest shape in the universe. Nothing can beat it, nothing can improve upon it, nothing can be more perfect. And that’s what we want to be: perfect.”

– Dave Eggers
