Quotes by Pamela Sargent  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Nature often allows a person only one mistake.”
Pamela Sargent, Earthseed

“The weapons are held to the head of all the world, and the world behaves. No one has an advantage; no one can win.”
Pamela Sargent, Earthseed

“My self-imposed solitude, at first a punishment I inflicted upon myself, became a kind of solace. I was apart from the city, my only reality the thoughts inside myself. Slowly, without the distractions of other companions and the need to mold and modify my ideas in their company, I came to know my own mind and the kind of purpose I might find in my work.”
Pamela Sargent, The Shore of Women

Janice Happy New Year.


Janice Have a beautiful 1st day of Summer, tomorrow.

Janice Thank you much for "friending" me. I loved your Star Trek novels. I've been a Trekkie since the late '60s, and I've never tired of Star Trek. These days I almost never read Science Fiction, or Fantasy, but I'll never give up Star Trek. Beam me up, Scotty! Scotty was always my favorite.

Tina Hi Pamela, Thanks for writing such great books! I just read The Shore of Women and really enjoyed it. Thanks!


message 2: by Daniel (last edited Feb 03, 2008 01:30PM)

Daniel
Pamela, I've added your books Women of Wonder: The Classic Years, Women of Wonder: The Contemporary Years, The Shore of Women, Earthseed and The New Women of Wonder to my to-read list


Jeremy Thanks for the friendship, Pamela!

Here’s wishing you a fantastic day filled with fabulous fates, fanciful festivities, and frolicking phantom footstools.

I was wondering if you'd do me the honor of reading about my debut novel, Vacation, which recently made the Bram Stoker Award Preliminary Ballot. Your support would mean a lot to me. If you'd like to do me this honor, feel free to vist my site here:

Happytimes,

Peter: Oh my god, Brian, there's a message in my Alphabits. It says, 'Oooooo.'
Brian: Peter, those are Cheerios.
