Kim Stanley Robinson
“Humans were still not only the cheapest robots around, but also, for many tasks, the only robots that could do the job. They were self-reproducing robots too. They showed up and worked generation after generation; give them 3000 calories a day and a few amenities, a little time off, and a strong jolt of fear, and you could work them at almost anything. Give them some ameliorative drugs and you had a working class, reified and coglike.”
Kim Stanley Robinson, 2312

Ed Yong
“All zoology is really ecology. We cannot fully understand the lives of animals without understanding our microbes and our symbioses with them.”
Ed Yong, I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life

James S.A. Corey
“I thought if you told people facts, they'd draw their conclusions, and because the facts were true, the conclusions mostly would be too. But we don't run on facts. We run on stories about things. About people.”
James S.A. Corey, Babylon's Ashes

Richard K. Morgan
“Religion is religion, however you wrap it, and like Quell says, a preoccupation with the next world pretty clearly signals an inability to cope credibly with this one.”
Richard K. Morgan, Broken Angels

Greg Egan
“Death never gave meaning to life: it was always the other way round.”
Greg Egan, Oceanic
