George Zebrowski Quotes

"The finest SF comes to grips with lifes mysteries, with our resentments against our own natures and our limited societies. It does so by asking basic questions in the artful, liberating way that is unique to this form of writing. Echoes of it are found in other forms of fiction - in the novel of ideas, in the historical novel, in the writings of the great philosophers and scientists; but the best SF does this all more searchingly, by taking what is in most people only a moment of wonder and rebellion against the arbitrariness of existence and making of it an art enriched by knowledge and possibility, expressing our deepest human longing to penetrate into the dark heart of the unknown."

Hazel B West Quotes

"When you are a soldier you do not always realize there is anything beyond the will of your commander, the will of your king. But when youre on the field of battle, when the swords clash and the colors fly above you in all their glory, there comes a time when you wonder: Why am I here? All the brilliance fades, the glory becomes meaningless; the blood spilled and comrades dead, all for nothing when you have no cause to fight for."

Sheila Moon Quotes

"That night after my parents had kissed me good night and closed my door, I got out of bed and took from my shirt pocket the three seeds I had carried since we left the ant kingdom. Everything else Id gathered, I realized, had been either given away or given back. Way back on my closet shelf was a tiny woven Indian basket with a cover. My grandfather had given me this when I was only nine years old, but it had always held some sort of secret for me. Into this basket I put the seeds, and hid it again."Well use them," I told Scuro as I got back into bed. "Just wait. Well use them."He sighed and rearranged himself on his rug in the corner. I noticed then that the kitten-a shy little creature only recently come to our household and up till now afraid of everything including Scuro-was curled between Scuros paws, purring in its sleep."

"[Letter to John Adams]The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the Supreme Being as his father, in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter (Works, Vol. iv, p. 365)." - Author: Thomas Jefferson

Quotes About Pointed

"In Britain I found things to be very different. I have yet to meet a single English person who has actually admitted to anti-negro prejudice. It is even generally believe that no such thing exists here. A negro is free to board any bus or train and sit anywhere, provided he has paid the appropriate fare. The fact that many people might pointedly avoid sitting near to him is casually overlooked. He is free to seek accommodation in any licensed hotel or boarding house - the courteous refusal which frequently follows is never ascribed to prejudice. The betrayal I now felt was greater because it had been perpetuated with the greatest of charm and courtesy." - Author: E.R. Braithwaite

Quotes About Them Not Caring

"Im the one who got hit by that car, not you, I tell him. Dont act like youre the victim here. You made choices I didnt ask you to make. Im not sure anyone asked you to make them.

You didnt care about me enough to trust me. I gave you my heart, but it wasnt enough." - Author: Simone Elkeles

Quotes About Road

"We all walk in a land of dreams. For what are we but atoms and hope, a handful of stardust and sinew? We are weary travelers trying to find our way home on a road that never ends. Am I a part of your dream? or are you but a part of mine?" - Author: Libba Bray

Quotes About Lesen

"Wenn die Leute über denselben Spaß lachen oder so manchen alten Scherz gemeinsam haben, der durch die Zeit nicht verblaßt und die Gewohnheit nicht flau wird, so wird das — mit Verlaub gesagt — eine bessere Vorbereitung für das gemein­schaftliche Leben sein, als so manche Dinge, die in der Welt einen edleren Klang haben. Man kann, wenn man will, Kant für sich allein lesen, aber einen Scherz muß man mit jemandem teilen." - Author: Robert Louis Stevenson

Quotes About Think Different

"The church and the whorehouse arrived in the Far West simultaneously. And each would have been horrified to think it was a different facet of the same thing. But surely they were both intended to accomplish the same thing: the singing, the devotion, the poetry of the churches took a man out of his bleakness for a time, and so did the brothels." - Author: John Steinbeck

Quotes About Saturno

"¿Qué hombre ha puesto sobre tus senos una mano que fuera la mía? ¿Qué beso te han dado que fuera como el mío? En aquellas tardes cálidas, cuando soñabas tanto, que soñabas que soñabas, ¿acaso no viste pasar, en lo más profundo de tus sueños, una figura velada y rápida, la que te daría toda la felicidad, la que te besaría indefinidamente? Era yo.Soy yo. Soy aquél al que siempre has buscado y nunca podrás encontrar. Tal vez, en el fondo inmenso del abismo, el propio Dios me busque para que yo lo complete, pero la maldición del Dios Más Viejo (el Saturno de Jehová) pende sobre él y sobre mí, nos separa, cuando nos debería unir para que la vida y lo que deseamos de ella fueran una sola cosa." - Author: Fernando Pessoa
