“Yes, books are dangerous. They should be dangerous - they contain ideas.”
Pete Hautman

“We connect through our dreams. Like we could be a thousand miles apart and I'd still know you were there.”
Pete Hautman, The Big Crunch

“You ever watch a football game and get totally into it? Why? It's not a real battle. It's just a game somebody made up. So how can you take it seriously?

You can't eat the picture.

. . . . .

Same thing with water towers and God. I don't have to be a believer to be serious about my religion.”
Pete Hautman, Godless
