Book cover for The Naked God (Night's Dawn, #3)
I’m an appropriate companion personality for a girl your age, young missy. We spent all night ransacking that library to see what I should be like. You got any idea what it’s like watching eight million hours of Disney AVs?’

Noam Chomsky
“the countries that have developed economically are those which were not colonized by the West; every country that was colonized by the West is a total wreck.”
Noam Chomsky, Understanding Power: The Indispensable Chomsky

Nassim Nicholas Taleb
“There is no intermediate state between ice and water but there is one between life and death: employment.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb, The Bed of Procrustes: Philosophical and Practical Aphorisms

Dan Simmons
“the lightning dance of gigantic hellwhip displays, beams the size of small worlds cutting their swath across light-hours and being contorted by the riptides of defensive singularities: the aurora shimmer of defense fields leaping and dying under the assault of terrible energies only to be reborn nanoseconds later.”
Dan Simmons, Hyperion

Greg Egan
“When I was ten years old, all I gave my sweetheart was a pair of projections that turned the group of rotations in four dimensions into principal bundles over the three-sphere. Ancient constructions, though I did rediscover them for myself.’ ‘How were they received?’ ‘She liked them so much, she extended them to larger spaces and gave me back the result.”
Greg Egan

Yuval Noah Harari
“The greatest scientific discovery was the discovery of ignorance.”
Yuval Noah Harari, Homo Deus: A History of Tomorrow
