Michael Swanwick
“Perfection is death,' Anastasia said. 'The world is imperfect, but if it weren't, who would love it?”
Michael Swanwick

Doris Lessing
“Whatever you're meant to do, do it now. The conditions are always impossible.”
Doris Lessing

Neil Gaiman
“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. I mean everybody. All of the people in the whole world, I mean everybody — no matter how dull and boring they are on the outside. Inside them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds... Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands, maybe.”
Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 5: A Game of You

George R.R. Martin
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

George Bernard Shaw
“The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one. The happiness of credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality of happiness, and by no means a necessity of life.”
George Bernard Shaw, Androcles and the Lion
