“A love that is true to living persons and existing realities is steadfast and fine. But I saw then, for the first time, that a love which was fastened upon the dead and true to nothing but a past that was finished, is not a good nor true emotion. If it went on too long, it could become an incubus, throttling a man from the real life of the present, which is the life that we were fashioned to meet and experience.”
William Sloane, The Rim of Morning: Two Tales of Cosmic Horror

“It is a curious fact that men who know nothing of each other tend to work in the same direction at the same time. Darwin and Wallace, Mendel and de Vries.”
William Sloane, The Rim of Morning: Two Tales of Cosmic Horror

“The man was disconcerting and, when I spoke again, it annoyed me to hear that my tone sounded apologetic.”
William Sloane, The Rim of Morning: Two Tales of Cosmic Horror
