“Am I alive and a reality, or am I but a dream?”
Edgar Rice Burroughs, The Return of Tarzan

“No fiction is worth reading except for entertainment. If it entertains and is clean, it is good literature, or its kind. If it forms the habit of reading, in people who might not read otherwise, it is the best literature.”
Edgar Rice Burroughs

“In one respect at least the Martians are a happy people, they have no lawyers.”
Edgar Rice Burroughs, A Princess of Mars
