Цитаты Дилэни, Сэмюэль

„That is the basis of all magic.“

—  Samuel R. Delany, книга Equinox

Equinox (1973)
Контексте: Always remember the objects you are working with. When you make a bridge, remember you are putting steel on stone and dirt. … Some day you will write poems to a little girl: marks with ink on paper. … When you are making love, you are moving flesh against flesh. That is the basis of all magic. (p. 30)

„Dictators during the entire history of this planet have used similar techniques. By not letting the people of their country know what conditions existed outside their boundaries, they could get the people to fight to stay in those conditions.“

—  Samuel R. Delany, книга The Jewels of Aptor

Источник: The Jewels of Aptor (1962), Chapter X (p. 133)
Контексте: Dictators during the entire history of this planet have used similar techniques. By not letting the people of their country know what conditions existed outside their boundaries, they could get the people to fight to stay in those conditions. It was the old adage: Convince a slave that he’s free, and he will fight to maintain his slavery.

„Once I was as ignorant as you; I swear, though, I can’t remember when.“

—  Samuel R. Delany, книга The Einstein Intersection

Section 9
The Einstein Intersection (1967)

„It is a magic book. Words mean things. When you put them together they speak.“

—  Samuel R. Delany, книга Equinox

Equinox (1973)
Контексте: It is a magic book. Words mean things. When you put them together they speak. Yes, sometimes they flatten out and nothing they say is real, and that is one kind of magic. But sometimes a vision will rip up from them and shriek and clank wings clear as the sweat smudge on the paper under your thumb. And that is another kind. (p. 163)

„Only a man afraid of freedom would want this power, who could conceive of wielding it. And that fear of freedom will turn him into a slave of this power.“

—  Samuel R. Delany, книга The Jewels of Aptor

Источник: The Jewels of Aptor (1962), Chapter X (p. 133)
Контексте: A lesson which history should have taught us thousands of years ago was finally driven home. No man can wield absolute power over other men and still retain his own mind. For no matter how good his intentions are when he takes up the power, his alternate reason is that freedom, the freedom of other people and ultimately his own, terrifies him. Only a man afraid of freedom would want this power, who could conceive of wielding it. And that fear of freedom will turn him into a slave of this power.

„The science of probability gives mathematical expression to our ignorance, not to our wisdom.“

—  Samuel R. Delany, Time Considered as a Helix of Semi-Precious Stones

Time Considered as a Helix of Semi-Precious Stones (1968)
Контексте: If everything, everything were known, statistical estimates would be unnecessary. The science of probability gives mathematical expression to our ignorance, not to our wisdom.
