  11. “Years ago, my friend Betty woke me at 1:30am – the first
    night she had a new MacBook Pro. “It’s breathing! It’s
    breathing!,” she exclaimed. Betty had just put the computer
    to sleep for the first time, and the pulsating snooze indicator
    had her feeling that she not only had a new computer, but
    also a new friend.”

  21. “When we read a story, not only do the language parts of
    our brains light up, but any other part of the brain that we
    would use if we were actually experiencing what we’re
    reading about becomes activated as well.” 

    ~Rachel Gillett
