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

—  Tom Clancy
1990s, Attributed to an interview on Larry King Live; 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)

„Historically, anything that gets information to people is good for the world. The most important human being who ever lived, if you want to leave out religious figures, would be Johannes Gutenberg… that's when the liberation of human thought happened, because people could read the thoughts of people across the world, and have thoughts of their own, and publish them and spread information around.“

The most important human being who ever lived, if you want to leave out religious figures, would be Johannes Gutenberg... that's when the liberation of human thought happened, because people could read the thoughts of people across the world, and have thoughts of their own, and publish them and spread information around. Anything that gets information to people is good. America has prospered because we're the most information-friendly society in the world.

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

—  Tom Clancy
1990s, CNN interview (1999), 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.

„I think it's going to be remembered as the last major war on planet Earth, if we're lucky, if we maintain our foreign policy properly. … It will be remembered as the last time major countries had to put people in the field and put them in harm's way.“

—  Tom Clancy
1990s, CNN interview (1999), Context: I think it's going to be remembered as the last major war on planet Earth, if we're lucky, if we maintain our foreign policy properly. … It will be remembered as the last time major countries had to put people in the field and put them in harm's way. It may be the last of all human nature wars, which is a nice way to remember any kind of a war, as the last one. On the 1991 Gulf War

„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
1990s, Schafer interview (1995), 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.

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

—  Tom Clancy
1990s, 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

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

—  Tom Clancy
1990s, Schafer interview (1995), 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
1990s, Schafer interview (1995), 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.
