Jon Krakauer Quote: “But it also demonstrates how difficult it is to correct a false belief after people have made an emotional investment in that belief being true. When our heroes turn out to be sleazebags, self-deception is easier than facing the facts.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “He offered a crystal-clear notion of right and wrong, an unambiguous definition of good and evil. And although his perspective was absolutist and unyielding, it presented a kinder, gentler alternative to Calvinism, which had been the ecclesiastical status quo in the early years of the American republic.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “We were too tired to help. Above 8,000 meters is not a place where people can afford morality.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “I enjoy its beauty and the vagrant life I lead, more keenly all the time. I prefer the saddle to the streetcar and star-sprinkled sky to a roof, the obscure and difficult trail, leading into the unknown, to any paved highway, and the deep peace of the wild to the discontent bred by cities.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “Between 1840 and 1844 God instructed the prophet to marry some forty women.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “Because it is there.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “Neither Emma’s tears nor her rage were enough to make Joseph monogamous, however; nor were the prevailing mores of the day. He kept falling rapturously in love with women not his wife. And because that rapture was so wholly consuming, and felt so good, it struck him as impossible that God might possibly frown on such a thing.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “The LDS Church has annual revenues estimated at more than $6 billion, and it is currently the largest employer in the state of Utah.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “Although the far territory of the extreme can exert an intoxicating pull on susceptible individuals of all bents, extremism seems to be especially prevalent among those inclined by temperament or upbringing toward religious pursuits. Faith is the very antithesis of reason, injudiciousness a crucial component of spiritual devotion. And when religious fanaticism supplants ratiocination, all bets are suddenly off.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “Huguet, on the other hand, insisted that prosecutors settle for nothing less than a lengthy sentence at the state penitentiary in Deer Lodge.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “And although his perspective was absolutist and unyielding, it presented a kinder, gentler alternative to Calvinism, which had been the ecclesiastical status quo in the early years of the American republic.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “In Missoula, Grizzly football exists in a realm apart, where there is a pervasive sense of entitlement. University of Montana fans, coaches, players, and their lawyers expect, and often receive, special dispensation.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “Simply by recounting their stories and breaking that silence, survivors of sexual assault strike a powerful blow against their assailants.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “In any human endeavor, some fraction of its practitioners will be motivated to pursue that activity with such concentrated focus and unalloyed passion that it will consume them utterly. One has to look no further than individuals who feel compelled to devote their lives to becoming concert pianists, say, or climbing Mount Everest. For some, the province of the extreme holds an allure that’s irresistible. And a certain percentage of such fanatics will inevitably fixate on matters of the spirit.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “If the expansion of the LDS faith continues at its current pace, within sixty years governing the United States will become “impossible without Mormon cooperation,” according to the eminent scholar Harold Bloom, Sterling Professor of the Humanities at Yale University – and an unabashed admirer of Joseph Smith and the Mormons.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “Maybe, I think, I don’t have to be great at this; maybe I just have to be good enough.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “The urge to catalog the myriad blunders in order to “learn from the mistakes” is for the most part an exercise in denial and self-deception.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “My life was falling apart. But somehow I stuck it out.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “No more than 20 percent of rapes are reported to the police, a statistic that defies comprehension until one looks closely at how sexual-assault cases are adjudicated in the United States.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “How can a society actively promote religious faith on one hand and condemn a man for zealously adhering to his faith on the other?”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “It is not uncommon for doctors to be chronic overachievers; Beck wasn’t the first physician to go overboard with a new hobby. But.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “My ignorance was inexcusable, and it made me ashamed.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “The LDS Church has annual revenues estimated at more than $6 billion, and.”
Jon Krakauer Quote: “Missoula has a culture uniquely its own, however, thanks to the fusion of its gritty frontier heritage with the university’s myriad impacts. UM has nationally distinguished programs in biology and ecology and is perhaps even more renowned for its literary bona fides. The faculty of the university’s Creative Writing Program, founded in 1920, has included such influential authors as Richard Hugo, James Crumley, and William Kittredge.”
