“We seem to be young, in a very old Galaxy. We're like kids tiptoeing through a ruined mansion.”
Stephen Baxter, Ark

“When you get close enough to someone you're never really alone again.”
Stephen Baxter, Vacuum Diagrams

“The past is a distraction, a source of envy, enmity, bitterness. Only the present matters, for only in the present can we shape the future.

Cut loose the past; it is dead weight.
Let the Extirpation continue. Let it never end.”
Stephen Baxter, Exultant
