John Scalzi
“You threw him into space?” “Yup.” “And he didn’t die?” “We only threw him out a little bit.” Marce”
John Scalzi, The Collapsing Empire

Hermann Hesse
“And this is now a teaching you will laugh about: love, oh Govinda, seems to me to be the most important thing of all. To thoroughly understand the world, to explain it, to despise it, may be the thing great thinkers do. But I’m only interested in being able to love the world, not to despise it, not to hate it and me, to be able to look upon it and me and all beings with love and admiration and great respect.”
Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha

Deepak Chopra
“I am totally independent of the good or bad opinion of others.”
Deepak Chopra

Andy Weir
“The overstimulated kids were literally bouncing off the walls. Lunar gravity is the worst thing to ever happen to parents.”
Andy Weir, Artemis

Andy Weir
“My cart is a pain in the ass to control, but it’s good at carrying heavy things. So I decided it was male. I named him Trigger.”
Andy Weir, Artemis
