JG Ballard Quotes

"Dr. Ransome marked the exercises in the algebra textbook and gave him two strips of rice-paper bandage on which to solve the simultaneous equations. As he stood up, Dr. Ransome removed the three tomatoes from Jims pocket. He laid them on the table by the wax tray.Did they come from the hospital garden?Yes. Jim gazed back frankly at Dr. Ransome. Recently he had begun to see him with a more adult eye. The long years of imprisonment, the constant disputes with the Japanese had made this young physician seem middle-aged. Dr. Ransome was often unsure of himself, as he was of Jims theft.I have to give Basie something whenever I see him.I know. Its a good thing that youre friends with Basie. Hes a survivor, though survivors can be dangerous. Wars exist for people like Basie. Dr. Ransome placed the tomatoes in Jims hand. I want you to eat them, Jim. Ill get you something for Basie."

Gene Roddenberry Quotes

"Star Trek was an attempt to say that humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day that it begins not just to tolerate, but take a special delight in differences in ideas and differences in life forms. […] If we cannot learn to actually enjoy those small differences, to take a positive delight in those small differences between our own kind, here on this planet, then we do not deserve to go out into space and meet the diversity that is almost certainly out there."

Quotes About Seeking God Will

"Was it a doubt - a fear - a wandering uncertainty seeking rest, but finding none - so tear-blinded were its eyes - Mr. Thornton, instead of being shocked, seemed to have through that very stage of thought himself, and could suggest where the exact ray of light was to be found, which should make the dark places plain.

Quotes About Raving

"Evasion of the unadorned immediacy of life is as deep-seated as it is relentless. Even with the ardent desire to be aware and alert in the present moment, the mind flings us into tawdry and tiresome elaborations of past and future. This craving to be otherwise, to be elsewhere, permeates the body, feeling, perceptions, will - consciousness itself. It is like the background radiation from the big bang of birth, the aftershock of having erupted into existence." - Author: Stephen Batchelor

Quotes About Espace

"Mais quelle étrange leçon de géographie je reçus là! Guillaumet ne menseignait pas lEspagne; il me faisait de lEspagne une amie. Il ne me parlait ni dhydrographie, nie de populations, ni de cheptel. Il ne me parlait pas de Guadix, mais des trois orangers qui, près de Guadix, bordent un champ : " Méfie-toi deux, marque-les sur ta carte... " Et les trois orangers y tenaient désormais plus de place que la Sierra Nevada. Il ne me parlait pas de Lorca, mais dune simple ferme près de Lorca. Dune ferme vivante. Et de son fermier. Et de sa fermière. Et ce couple prenait, perdu dans lespace, à quinze cents kilomètres de nous, une importance démesurée. Bien installés sur le versant de leur montagne, pareils à des gardiens de phare, ils étaient prêts, sous leur étoiles, à porter secours à des hommes.(Terre des Hommes, ch. I)" - Author: Antoine de Saint Exupéry
