Niccolò Machiavelli
“If an injury has to be done to a man it should be so severe that his vengeance need not be feared.”
Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince

Niccolò Machiavelli
“Men in general judge more by the sense of sight than by the sense of touch, because everyone can see but few can test by feeling. Everyone sees what you seem to be, few know what you really are; and those few do not dare take a stand against the general opinion.”
Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
“Above all, trust in the slow work of God.
We are quite naturally impatient in everything
to reach the end without delay.
We should like to skip the intermediate stages.
We are impatient of being on the way to something
unknown, something new.
And yet it is the law of all progress
that it is made by passing through
some stages of instability—
and that it may take a very long time.

And so I think it is with you;
your ideas mature gradually—let them grow,
let them shape themselves, without undue haste.
Don’t try to force them on,
as though you could be today what time
(that is to say, grace and circumstances
acting on your own good will)
will make of you tomorrow.

Only God could say what this new spirit
gradually forming within you will be.
Give Our Lord the benefit of believing
that his hand is leading you,
and accept the anxiety of feeling yourself
in suspense and incomplete.”
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Niccolò Machiavelli
“And here comes in the question whether it is better to be loved rather than feared, or feared rather than loved. It might perhaps be answered that we should wish to be both; but since love and fear can hardly exist together, if we must choose between them, it is far safer to be feared than loved.”
Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince

Niccolò Machiavelli
“The lion cannot protect himself from traps, and the fox cannot defend himself from wolves. One must therefore be a fox to recognize traps, and a lion to frighten wolves.”
Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince

Once in Seattle, Gloria tries a last ditch cure - an experimental nanotechnology-based procedure called LifeCells. The cure becomes more than a cure, replacing much of Gloria’s mind. With LifeCells, Gloria’s consciousness extends into machines and into the virtual world Creon. Gloria fights for survival in the both the virtual world and the real against forces that would control her or have her destroyed. GloryEve - Transcend is a novella that explores the issue of technology redefining what it means to be human. When, if ever, does technology go too far? What is the line between humans and machines? What happens when a person, a young innocent girl, inadvertently crosses that line?
