Marina J. Lostetter
“Earth wants to be comfortable. The more comfortable someone is, a society is, the less likely they are to seek change, even positive change.”
Marina J. Lostetter, Noumenon

Ursula K. Le Guin
“The exercise of imagination is dangerous to those who profit from the way things are because it has the power to show that the way things are is not permanent, not universal, not necessary. Having that real though limited power to put established institutions into question, imaginative literature has also the responsibility of power. The storyteller is the truthteller.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Wave in the Mind: Talks and Essays on the Writer, the Reader and the Imagination

Ken Liu
“A good story cannot function like a legal brief, which attempts to persuade and lead the reader down a narrow path suspended above the abyss of unreason. Rather, it must be more like an empty house, an open garden, a deserted beach by the ocean. The reader moves in with their own burdensome baggage and long-cherished possessions, seeds of doubt and shears of understanding, maps of human nature and baskets of sustaining faith. The reader then inhabits the story, explores its nooks and crannies, rearranges the furniture to suit their taste, covers the walls with sketches of their inner life, and thereby makes the story their home.”
Ken Liu, The Hidden Girl and Other Stories

Annalee Newitz
“But now we know there has been no one great disaster—only the slow-motion disaster of capitalism converting every living thing and idea into property.”
Annalee Newitz, Autonomous

Robin Wall Kimmerer
“In some Native languages the term for plants translates to “those who take care of us.”
Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass
