Paolo Bacigalupi, Ship Breaker

“I'm a chess piece. A pawn,' she said. 'I can be sacrificed, but I cannot be captured. To be captured would be the end of the game.”
Paolo Bacigalupi, Ship Breaker

“We are nature. Our every tinkering is nature, our every biological striving. We are what we are, and the world is ours. We are its gods. Your only difficulty is your unwillingness to unleash your potential fully upon it.”
Paolo Bacigalupi, The Windup Girl
