„Человечество, как оказалось, не способно решить ни одной своей проблемы, но способно пережить их все.“

„Абсолютной истины не существует — такова абсолютная истина.“


„I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters.“ A Matter for Men

„To say that a writer's hold on reality is tenuous is an understatement-it's like saying the Titanic had a rough crossing. Writer's build their own realities, move into them and occasionally send letters home. The only difference between a writer and a crazy person is that a writer gets paid for it.“

„I think I exist, therefore I exist. I think.“ The Man Who Folded Himself

„The secret of the universe is this: The universe doesn't care. That part of the job is yours.“

„I have memories - but only a fool stores his past in the future“

„Life is hard. Then you die. Then they throw dirt in your face. Then the worms eat you. Be grateful it happens in that order“


„Something went klunk. Like a nickel dropping in a soda machine. One of those small insights that explains everything. This was puberty for these boys. Adolescence. The first date, the first kiss, the first chance to hold hands with someone special. Delayed, postponed, a decade's worth of longing--while everybody around you celebrates life, you pretend, suppress, inhibit, deprive yourself of you own joy--but finally ultimately, eventually, you find a place where you can have a taste of everything denied.“

„A work of art is an act of love. Critics are crab lice.“

„I have a very simple philosophy of life:

Kindness. Ferocious, unrelenting, ruthless, committed, passionate, kindness.

Life is sacred everywhere. We all have better things to do than beat each other up.

Arguing for the exception is to invest it with energy, it's to negotiate the loophole. The commitment to kindness must be total.“

„Somewhere there exists all the possible variations of all the possible people I could be. I could be any of them- but I cannot be all. I can only be one of the variations. I will be the variation of myself that pleases me the most.“ The Man Who Folded Himself


„know a lot of people who hide out in fantasy because reality is too hard to cope with [... ] Fantasy isn't about escape; it's a survival mechanism. It's a way to deal with things that are so much bigger than you are. So I think fantasy is special, something to be cherished and protected because it's a very fragile thing and without it, we're so defenseless, we're paralyzed“ The Martian Child: A Novel About a Single Father Adopting a Son

„Morality—like velocity—is relative. The determination of it depends on what the objects around you are doing. All one can do is measure one's position in relation to them; never can one measure one's velocity or morality in terms of absolutes.“ Star Hunt

„If you want to be taken care and not to worry that’s fine; you can join the rest of the cattle. Cattle are comfortable, that’s how you recognize them. Just don’t complain when they ship you off to the packing plant. They’ve bought and paid for the privilege. Now if you want to be free, then get this: freedom is not about being comfortable. It’s about seizing and using opportunities, and using them responsibly. Freedom is not comfort. It’s commitment. Commitment is the willingness to be uncomfortable.“ A Matter for Men

„The fifties are a peaceful time, a quiet sleeping time between two noisy bursts of years, a blue and white time filled with sweet yellow days, music and bright smelling memories.“ The Man Who Folded Himself
