Shane Parrish - The Antilibrary: Why Unread Books Are The Most Important
A good library is filled with mostly unread books. That’s the point. Our relationship with the unknown causes the very problem Taleb is famous for contextualizing: the black swan. Because we underestimate the value of what we don’t know and overvalue what we do know, we fundamentally misunderstand the likelihood of surprises.

Costis Ormentiedes and the Thief of Eddis - by kormantic - The Queen's Thief - Megan Whalen Turner
“He looks too young to be taking his own class ,” Costis continued. “He’s the worst Defense Against the Dark Arts professor we’ve ever had. And that's saying something.”

“You’re mad for him, aren’t you,” Aris teased. “It’s ‘Queen’ Attolia all over again… calf-eyes and mooning and swearing fealty…”

Costis felt his ears go scarlet.

“I do not have a crush on the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher,” Costis insisted.

“Happy to hear it,” Professor Saccularius sang out. “As I understand it, those can be very awkward, for both parties. Hiero, I am all admiration for your earrings. Did you make them yourself?”

She nodded, eyes huge. “It’s just a little copper wire, Professor.”

“Well, they’re very fine. Good afternoon to all of you. I’ll expect those scrolls on my desk first thing on Wednesday!” And he breezed past them as if he couldn’t tell that Costis was choking on his own tongue.
