"The universe is fat with dimensions." -- Robert Reed, "Coelacanths"

"They [Americans] have confused progress with mechanization." -- Lewis Mumford

"Children who tell adults everything are trying to make them as wise as they. Just as children who ask questions already know why the sky is blue and where the lost kitten has gone.

"There are only three rules to writing a novel; unfortunately, no one knows what they are." -- Somerset Maugham
