    Orson Scott Card, Speaker for the Dead

    Orson Scott Card
    “In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him.

I destroy them.”

    Is it too much to think that perhaps God speaks to us sometimes through music?

    How, then, could I be so ungrateful as to refuse the message?”
    Orson Scott Card
