Great and Confusing - This is a text based piece that was from the introduction of The End of Dreams by James Gunn. Within the quote, Gunn states that; “... men have a talent for simplifying existence. Perhaps it is the only way they can handle the great and confusing variety of life.” I think about that quote a lot with everything that is going on in society today.
