“There are so many kinds of time. The time by which we measure our lives. Months and years. Or the big time, the time that raises mountains and makes stars. Or all the things that happen between one heartbeat and the next. Its hard to live in all those kinds of times. Easy to forget that you live in all of them.”
Robert Charles Wilson, Spin

“We're all born strangers to ourselves and each other, and we're seldom formally introduced.”
Robert Charles Wilson, Spin

“I won't put my ignorance on an altar and call it God. It feels like idolatry, like the worst kind of idolatry.”
Robert Charles Wilson, Darwinia
