Saul Bellow on Conformism and Distractions

“As the allure of agreement — or conformism — grows, the perils of independence deepen. To differ is dangerous.”

- Saul Bellow, quoted in Dwight Garner's review of There is Simply Too Much to Think About.

Garner notes that Bellow "railed frequently... against the distractions of modern life" and that many essays in this collection "return to a single topic: technology-driven modernity and how it frazzles the contemplative mind."
