“I'm a strict materialist - but the police are brutal materialists.”
Jack Williamson, Darker Than You Think

“Her long body stiffened against him. Her cool fingers tightened in his shaggy fur, and her bare, clinging heels dug deep into his heaving flanks. She was sweet against him, and the clear logic of this new life conquered the dreary conventions of that old, dim existence where he had walked in bitter death.”
Jack Williamson, Darker Than You Think

“And there would come up from the sea its voice; and the sea has no voice, but mysteriously touches the strings within the soul of a man, so that the soul speaks in its own way, each soul lifting its peculiar message.”
Jack Williamson, The Sea-Story Megapack: 30 Classic Nautical Works
