Quote of the Day

“Written words,” she says, as if she’s lonely for them, “Coded ideas. Nobody understands them now.”

“What were they for?” I ask.

“Code as a way of keeping thoughts still. Of helping them stay in formation. Everybody used to understand it, and they could write in it too. It meant that you could return to the ideas when you wanted. Code is a kind of memory.” [snip]

When Chimes came, the birds died. When the birds died, words died. When words died, memory died.

~ Anna Smaill, The Chimes
