Alan Dean Foster
It illuminated a vision Dante could not have imagined in his wildest nightmares, nor Poe in the grasp of an uncontrollable delirium.
Anna Carey
What If I still want to go? Then you'll go, he said. But I wanted you to know the danger. There's always danger. His green eyes met mine. I was starting to see It, how It could happen-Caleb and me.

I ask of you your lives, Elend said, voice echoing, and your courage. I ask of you your faith, and your honor
Charles de Lint
Having to amuse myself during those earlier years, I read voraciously and widely. Mythic matter and folklore made up much of that reading

Knowledge is like an endless resource; a well of water that satisfies the innate thirst of the growing human soul. Therefore never stop learning... because the day you do, you will also stop maturing.
Christopher Brookmyre
I suppose there are some advantages to this place,' he admitted. 'I bet it's fucking raining in Stirling.

I'm the terrorist, do what I say or I'll terrorize you.
Dan Simmons
They lay together in a sheltered place among the ruins of Brasilia while deathbeams from Chinese EMVs played like blue searchlights on broken ceramic walls.
Derek Donais
His men had begun gathering the wounded or stunned into a small group some distance back up the slope. Here and there an animal or human stirred, but not many. There were few cries of pain or fear now. Mostly, it was eerily quiet. Even the insects had ceased their music.
Derek Donais
Remember that the choices you make, and the reasons you make them, shape your destiny. Remember your free will...And remember, what the True One has made is supposed to bring balance and unity, not anger, fear or revenge. Do not fear, what is yours to use. Only beware the ends to which it is turned, and know the means will truly determine the outcome.
Derek Donais
One age ends, and another begins. It is the way of things. But, it doesn't happen all at once.
Douglas Adams
Having solved all the major mathematical, physical, chemical, biological, sociological, philosophical, etymological, meteorological and psychological problems of the Universe except for his own, three times over, [Marvin] was severely stuck for something to do, and had taken up composing short dolorous ditties of no tone, or indeed tune. The latest one was a lullaby.Marvin droned,Now the world has gone to bed,Darkness won't engulf my head,I can see in infrared,How I hate the night.He paused to gather the artistic and emotional strength to tackle the next verse.Now I lay me down to sleep,Try to count electric sheep,Sweet dream wishes you can keep,How I hate the night.
Douglas Adams
This must be Thursday,' said Arthur to himself, sinking low over his beer. 'I never could get the hang of Thursdays.

OK, so the guy is cool, but... I mean own up, this is barking time, this is major lunch, this is stool approaching critical mass, this is... this is... total vocabulary failure!
Frank Herbert
No conocerás el miedo. El miedo mata la mente. El miedo es la pequeña muerte que conduce a la destrucción total.Afrontaré mi miedo. Permitiré que pase sobre mí y a través de mí. Y cuando haya pasado girare mi ojo interior para escrutar su camino. Allá donde haya pasado el miedo ya no habrá nada. Solo estaré yo.
Frederik Pohl
A good science fiction story should be able to predict not the automobile but the traffic jam.
George Lucas
The ability to speak does not make you intelligent.
George R.R. Martin
And what lesson can we draw from Volantene history?If you want to conquer the world, you best have dragons.
Harold Camping
And now, we have no option. We can't say 'maybe' 'it's possible' 'it looks very probable...' No way! We have to say this is what the Bible teaches! This is fact! May 21, 2011 is the day of the Rapture, it is the day that Judgment Day begins...
Harold Camping
Thus, we must realize that October 21, 2011 will be the final day of this earth's existence.

Two minutes worth of signal analysis told me all I needed to know. This station talks to the dark matter universe about what goes on inside.How did you cobble together a jammer so quickly?I had one on me.

Yes, but none of them can steal my ship.None of them are smart enough to know that it was the right thing to do at the time.

You're more mean-spirited than I remember you being.It's this organic body. Hologram fur wasn't itchy.
Iain Banks
You need to read more science fiction. Nobody who reads science fiction comes out with this crap about the end of history

Thomas: Is it [my brain] fixed?Brenda: It worked, judging from the fact that you're not trying to kill us anymore...
Jane Espenson
If we can't write diversity into sci-fi, then what's the point? You don't create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones.
Joe Hill
Whatever your sexual orientation, whatever your ethnicity, whatever your age or personal experience, it is my hope you will find a hero somewhere here you can relate to, that speaks to the world as you see it. Even better: there is a good chance you will find some heroes who are deeply, fundamentally different from yourself. I don't have much patience with readers who yearn to explore incredible worlds and mind-bending situations but grow cold at the idea of imagining their way into different political ideas, different faiths, a different gender, a different skin, a different life.
Kamand Kojouri
She might not have read many books. But when she reads a book, she swallows the very words. If you open the books on her shelves, you will find that the front and back covers encase white pages.
Kim Stanley Robinson
Efficiency was just a measurement of how fast money moved from the poor to the rich. We prefer the opposite of efficiency, which is to say, justice.
L.T. Gibbons
We worship life on Usonia. Nature... The moon, the sun, the stars, the rivers.

Speak peace unto the world and good souls will stand.
Laurell K. Hamilton
There comes a point when you either embrace who and what you are, or condemn yourself to be miserable all your days. Other people will try to make you miserable; don't help them by doing the job yourself.
Lois Lowry
The life where nothing was ever unexpected. Or inconvenient. Or unusual. The life without colour, pain or past.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself.
Margaret Wander Bonanno
There are those who like things just they are and will stop at nothing to keep them that way, and those who understand that change is the natural order of the universe, and one must change with it.
Maria Headley

Mary Doria Russell
In the beginning, Scripture taught, there was the Word, and Danny would come to believe that the two great gifts his God had given to the species He loved were time, which divides experience, and language, which binds the past to the future.
Matthew S. Williams
It was unhealthy to get too attached. Such things were best reserved for people who had a life expectancy
Neal Asher
It all came back to human time and utterly human impulses: in the end, gods did not appreciate godlike power, but humans did.
Neal Asher
It seemed that, after contact with a few human generations, sand hogs would begin to understand human speech. The irony was that after coming to understand their riders fully, the beasts often ended up abandoning them and heading off into the wilderness.
Neal Asher
Try to think like a human,' said Gant, lolling in one of the club chairs.'Why should I restrict myself so severely?
Orson Scott Card
I don't care how much you eat, Ender, self-cannibalism won't get you out of this school.
Philip Pullman
People should decide on the books' meanings for themselves. They'll find a story that attacks such things as cruelty, oppression, intolerance, unkindness, narrow-mindedness, and celebrates love, kindness, open-mindedness, tolerance, curiosity, human intelligence.
Richard Matheson
He stood there for a moment looking around the silent room, shaking his head slowly. All these books, he thought, the residue of a planet's intellect, the scrapings of futile minds, the leftovers, the potpourri of artifacts that had no power to save men from perishing.
Robert Jackson Bennett
Humans are strange. … They value punishment because they think it means their actions are important
Robert Sheckley
He created waterfalls for her out of the morning dew, and from the colored pebbles of a meadow stream he made a necklace more beautiful than emeralds, sadder than pearls. She caught him in her net of silken hair, she carried him down, down, into deep and silent waters, past obliteration. He showed her frozen stars and molten sun; she gave him long, entwined shadows and the sound of black velvet. He reached out to her and touched moss, grass, ancient trees, iridescent rocks; her fingertips, striving upwards, brushed old planets and silver moonlight, the flash of comets and the cry of dissolving suns.
S.J. Perelman
I guess I'm just an old mad scientist at bottom. Give me an underground laboratory, half a dozen atom-smashers, and a beautiful girl in a diaphanous veil waiting to be turned into a chimpanzee, and I care not who writes the nation's laws.
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.
Steven Wright
I put tape on the mirrors in my house so I don't accidentally walk through into another dimension.
Susan Sontag
Science fiction films are not about science. They are about disaster, which is one of the oldest subjects of art.
Tim Burton
We all know interspecies romance is weird.
Todd Crawshaw
Was intelligence an inevitability, a consequence of evolution? Bacteria succeeded without a brain, possessing survival skills that rivaled their biological hosts. So why should a creature of higher intelligence expect to do better? Humans were on the verge of being replaced by their hybrid creations. How intelligent was that?
Tom Kane
A word can change a mind. A sentence can change a life. A book can change the world.
Torin Sarasas
Science is about the desperate effort to catch up with the 13.7 billion year-old facts (give or take an eon or two).

Ursula K. Le Guin
What is love of one's country; is it hate of one's uncountry? Then it's not a good thing. Is it simply self-love? That's a good thing, but one musn't make a virtue of it, or a profession...Insofar as I love life, I love [my country], but that sort of love does not have a boundary-line of hate. And beyond that, I am ignorant, I hope.
Ursula K. Le Guin
An Odonian undertook monogamy just as he might undertake a joint enterprise in production, a ballet or a soap-works. Partnership was a voluntarily constituted federation like any other. So long as it worked, it worked, and if it didn't work it stopped being. It was not an institution but a function. It had no sanction but that of private conscience.
Ursula K. Le Guin
How does one hate a country, or love one? Tibe talks about it; I lack the trick of it. I know people, I know towns, farms, hills and rivers and rocks, I know how the sun at sunset in autumn falls on the side of a certain plowland in the hills; but what is the sense of giving a boundary to all that, of giving it a name and ceasing to love where the name ceases to apply? What is love of one's country; is it hate of one's uncountry? Then it's not a good thing. Is it simply self-love? That's a good thing, but one mustn't make a virtue of it, or a profession... Insofar as I love life, I love the hills of the Domain of Estre, but that sort of love does not have a boundary-line of hate. And beyond that, I am ignorant, I hope.
Veronica Rossi
In the afternoon, they stopped to eat on a rocky outcrop. Perry brushed a kiss on her cheek while she was chewing, and she learned that it was the loveliest thing to be kissed for no reason, even while chewing food. It brightened the woods, and the never sky, and everything.
Veronica Rossi
His hand snapped shut over the device and then he crossed his arms. Aria stared in horror. Her Smarteye was buried in a Neanderthal's armpit.
