Neal Stephenson
“Whenever serious and competent people need to get things done in the real world, all considerations of tradition and protocol fly out the window.”
Neal Stephenson, Quicksilver

Neal Stephenson
“Nell," the Constable continued, indicating through his tone of voice that the lesson was concluding, "the difference between ignorant and educated people is that the latter know more facts. But that has nothing to do with whether they are stupid or intelligent. The difference between stupid and intelligent people—and this is true whether or not they are well-educated—is that intelligent people can handle subtlety. They are not baffled by ambiguous or even contradictory situations—in fact, they expect them and are apt to become suspicious when things seem overly straightforward.”
Neal Stephenson, The Diamond Age: or, A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer

Neal Stephenson
“... when I saw any of those kinds of beauty I knew I was alive, and not just in the sense that when I hit my thumb with a hammer I knew I was alive, but rather in the sense that I was partaking of something--something was passing through me that it was in my nature to be a part of.”
Neal Stephenson, Anathem

“Do act mysterious. It always keeps them coming back for more.”
Carolyn Keene, Nancy's Mysterious Letter

Neal Stephenson
“Boredom is a mask frustration wears.”
Neal Stephenson, Anathem
