The Sirens of Titan by Kurt Vonnegut
“. . . but the Universe is an awfully big place. There is room enough for an awful lot of people to be right about things and still not agree.”

Octavia E. Butler
“Cities controlled by big companies are old hat in science fiction. My grandmother left a whole bookcase of old science fiction novels. The company-city subgenre always seemed to star a hero who outsmarted, overthrew, or escaped "the company." I've never seen one where the hero fought like hell to get taken in and underpaid by the company. In real life, that's the way it will be. That's the way it always is.”
Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Sower

Stephen King
“The world was round, that was the deadly truth of it.”
Stephen King, Roadwork

Kurt Vonnegut
“I had no respect whatsoever for the creative works of either the painter or the novelist. I thought Karabekian with his meaningless pictures had entered into a conspiracy with millionaires to make poor people feel stupid. I thought Beatrice Keedsler had joined hands with other old-fashioned storytellers to make people believe that life had leading characters, minor characters, significant details, insignificant details, that it had lessons to be learned, tests to be passed, and a beginning, a middle, and an end.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Breakfast of Champions

Octavia E. Butler
“They have no power to improve their lives, but they have the power to make others even more miserable. And the only way to prove to yourself that you have power is to use it.”
Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Sower

George R.R. Martin
“all men are fools, and all men are knights, where women are concerned.”
George R.R. Martin, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms
