“Sanity is a matter of consensus.”
Robert Sheckley, Options

“- "What is reality?"
- "One of the many possible illusions.”
Robert Sheckley, Options

“Wherever you go in the galaxy, you can find a food business, a house-building business, a war business, a peace business, a governing business, and so forth. And, of course, a God business, which is called 'religion,' and which is a particularly reprehensible line of endeavor. ”
Robert Sheckley, Dimension of Miracles
