„The difference between reality and fiction? Fiction has to make sense.“

— Tom Clancy
Attributed to an interview on Larry King Live<!-- this citation was found, for this commonly attributed remark, but a date is needed here -->; also quoted in Quotable Quotes (1997) edited by Deborah Deford Attributed variant: The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction has to make sense. Clancy here expresses an idea evoked in similar statements made by others, all derived from the orignial made by Lord Byron: Lord Byron: Truth is always strange; stranger than fiction. Mark Twain: Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities, truth isn't. G. K. Chesterton: Truth must necessarily be stranger than fiction, for fiction is the creation of the human mind and therefore congenial to it. Leo Rosten: Truth is stranger than fiction; fiction has to make sense. (attributed)

„Show me an elitist, and I'll show you a loser.“

— Tom Clancy
Context: There are people in government who don't want other people to know what they know. It's just another example of elitism. And I spit on elitism. Show me an elitist, and I'll show you a loser.

„Nothing is as real as a dream. The world can change around you, but your dream will not.“

— Tom Clancy
Context: Nothing is as real as a dream. The world can change around you, but your dream will not. Your life may change, but your dream doesn't have to. Responsibilities need not erase it. Duties need not obscure it. Your spouse and children need not get in its way, because the dream is within you. No one can take your dream away. As quoted in Writers (1995) Published by A. Deutsch

„We saw people in Northern Ireland, Catholics acting like savages and Protestants acting like savages... We have people who call themselves Muslims acting like savages. It's not because of their religion, it's because they're fools.“

— Tom Clancy
Context: Ending your own life is not something the average person does. Everybody's assuming these are Islamic terrorists. Well, if so they've defiled their own religion. Islam does not permit suicide. It says you go to hell if you do something like this... We saw people in Northern Ireland, Catholics acting like savages and Protestants acting like savages... We have people who call themselves Muslims acting like savages. It's not because of their religion, it's because they're fools.

„In case you haven't noticed, we live in a world that is for the first time in all of recorded human history unlikely to have a major war. There used to be this country called the Soviet Union; it's not there anymore. The reason is our technology was better than theirs.“

— Tom Clancy
Context: In case you haven't noticed, we live in a world that is for the first time in all of recorded human history unlikely to have a major war. There used to be this country called the Soviet Union; it's not there anymore. The reason is our technology was better than theirs. Probably what pushed the Russians over the edge was SDI. It was really a combination of SDI and CNN. They realized they couldn't beat us so they decided to change the ball game.

„The more information available to the average person, the greater the synergy that develops from it.“

— Tom Clancy
Context: America is the most inventive country in the world. Why? Because everybody has access to information. In the Soviet Union it was illegal to take a photograph of a train station. Look what happened to them. They tried to classify everything. The more information available to the average person, the greater the synergy that develops from it.

„Fighting wars is not so much about killing people as it is about finding things out. The more you know, the more likely you are to win a battle.“

— Tom Clancy
Context: Fighting wars is not so much about killing people as it is about finding things out. The more you know, the more likely you are to win a battle. Take the AEGIS system in the navy. It's a radar computer system for air-battle management. What it does is give the commander an extra 15 minutes to decide what he's going to do to fight a battle, and those 15 minutes are decisively important.

„You don't pick generals off park benches. … They are experts at what they do and lot of thinking goes into it.“

— Tom Clancy
Context: My vision for this book and the others in the series is to let people know what kind of commanders we have. You don't pick generals off park benches. … They are experts at what they do and lot of thinking goes into it. And I want to get across to people the intellectual dimension of command, to let people know that it's hard to be a general. And the people we have with general stars on their shoulders are pretty smart and pretty good guys.
