“That was when it was all made painfully clear to me. When you are a child, there is joy. There is laughter. And most of all, there is trust. Trust in your fellows. When you are an adult...then comes suspicion, hatred, and fear. If children ran the world, it would be a place of eternal bliss and cheer. Adults run the world; and there is war, and enmity, and destruction unending. Adults who take charge of things muck them up, and then produce a new generation of children and say, "The children are the hope of the future." And they are right. Children are the hope of the future. But adults are the damnation of the present, and children become adults as surely as adults become worm food.
Adults are the death of hope.”
Peter David, Tigerheart

“To the brave crew and passengers of the Kobayshi Maru…sucks to be you.”
Peter David, Stone and Anvil

“If we can't alter the tide of events, at least we can be nearby with towels to mop up.”
Peter David, Q-In-Law
