For those of you new to Heinlein, here is a link you may enjoy:
Robert A. Heinlein Quotations

Also of some interest are the Notebooks of Lazarus Long

The Moon is a Harsh Mistress is an OK read, but it isn't my favorite Heinlein; if you would like another bite of the apple, try Stranger in a Strange Land or Time Enough for Love. They're both long books; I think Stranger reads faster, it has more dialog.


Andre (AndreB) | 34 comments My favorite quote of his:

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
-Robert A. Heinlein
