“Ox, at an early age a Chinese genius gazes at the path that lies ahead and reaches for a wine jar," Master Li said. "Is it any wonder that our greatest men have lurched rather than walked across the landscape as they hiccuped their way into history?”
Barry Hughart, The Story of the Stone: A Master Li Novel

George R.R. Martin
“I was born in Bayonne, New Jersey. I grew up in the projects. I never went anywhere. But I have lived a thousand lives and I’ve loved a thousand loves. I’ve walked on distant worlds and seen the end of time. Because I read.”
George R.R. Martin

Ian McDonald
“There's never been a rule of human behavior that hasn't been broken by someone, somewhere, sometime, in some circumstance mundane or spectacular. To be human is to transcend the rules.”
Ian McDonald, River of Gods

George R.R. Martin
“They can keep their heaven. When I die, I’d sooner go to Middle Earth. ”
George R.R. Martin

Ursula K. Le Guin
“My mother was mad, but I was not. My father was old, but I was young. Like Spartan Helen, I caused a war. She caused hers by letting men who wanted her take her. I caused mine because I wouldn’t be given, wouldn’t be taken, but chose my man and my fate.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, Lavinia
