Those who do not have power over the story
that dominates their lives,
power to retell it,
rethink it,
deconstruct it,
joke about it,
and change it as times change,
truly are powerless,
because they cannot think new thoughts.

Salman Rushdie,
"One Thousand Days in a Balloon,"
New York Times, December 12, 1991
