Criss Jami
“It turns out that indecision is a path itself; but figuratively, a vertical path - up or down - meaning it isn't always a fruitless path. One is forgotten, but the other is glorified. To be what they call 'middle-of-the-road' in most cases just means you have a hard time figuring out who between options is dumber. So quite often those who refused to decide were, after all, the bold individuals, the influential ones, the creative ones, those who snatched their own authority.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Thomas A. Edison
“I have always regarded Paine as one of the greatest of all Americans. Never have we had a sounder intelligence in this republic ... It was my good fortune to encounter Thomas Paine's works in my boyhood ... it was, indeed, a revelation to me to read that great thinker's views on political and theological subjects. Paine educated me, then, about many matters of which I had never before thought. I remember, very vividly, the flash of enlightenment that shone from Paine's writings, and I recall thinking, at that time, 'What a pity these works are not today the schoolbooks for all children!' My interest in Paine was not satisfied by my first reading of his works. I went back to them time and again, just as I have done since my boyhood days.”
Thomas A. Edison

“Don't pay attention to people
Who tell you can't do it at lenght.

Can lead to what's quintessential.
Make their limitation be your strenght.
You might as well contradict them
And then reach your full potential.”

Dmitry Glukhovsky
“— Видяхте ли гибелта на този свят? — продължаваше жрецът. — Разбирате ли кой е виновен за нея? Кой знае имената на онези, които с едно натискане на бутона, дори без да виждат това, което правят, са изтривали от лицето на земята стотици хиляди хора? Превръщали са безкрайните зелени гори в изпепелени пустини? Какво направихте с този свят? С моя свят?! Как посмяхте да поемете върху себе си отговорността да го превърнете в нищо? Земята не знае по-голямо зло от вашата адска машинна цивилизация, цивилизацията, противопоставяща неживите механизми на природата! Тя направи всичко възможно да смачка, да изяде и смели света, но се самозабрави и изтреби самата себе си… Вашата цивилизация е раков тумор, тя е огромна амеба, която жадно поглъща всичко, което е полезно и хранително наоколо, и изхвърля само зловонни отровени отпадъци. И сега отново са ви нужни ракети! Нужно ви е най-страшното оръжие, създадено от цивилизация на престъпници! Защо? За да довършите започнатото? За да шантажирате последните оцелели? Да се доберете до властта? Убийци! Ненавиждам ви, ненавиждам ви всичките! — закрещя истерично той, после се закашля и млъкна.”
Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro 2033
