Iain Banks
“What do I really want? he thinks. This is, of course, an extremely good question. It was just such a pity that, life being as it tended to be, it so rarely came as part of a matched pair, with an extremely good answer.”
Iain Banks, The Steep Approach to Garbadale

Richard Dawkins
“We are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further.”
Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

Nick Hornby
“A while back, when Dick and Barry and I agreed that what really matters is what you like, not what you are like, Barry proposed the idea of a questionnaire for prospective partners.”
Nick Hornby, High Fidelity

Iain Banks
“You need to read more science fiction. Nobody who reads science fiction comes out with this crap about the end of history”
Iain Banks

Julian Barnes, The Sense of an Ending
