“Every day should be unwrapped as a gift.”
Harry Harrison

“We must be as stealthy as rats in the wainscoting of their society. It was easier in the old days, of course, and society had more rats when the rules were looser, just as old wooden buildings have more rats than concrete buildings. But there are rats in the building now as well. Now that society is all ferrocrete and stainless steel there are fewer gaps in the joints. It takes a very smart rat indeed to find these openings. Only a stainless steel rat can be at home in this environment...”
Harry Harrison, The Stainless Steel Rat

“One time we had the whole world in our hands, but we ate it and burned it and it's gone now.”
Harry Harrison, Make Room! Make Room!
