“Life is full of little surprises.
Time travel is full of big ones.”
David Gerrold, The Man Who Folded Himself

Isaac Asimov
“You must have minimalism because every change, any change, has myriad side effects that can’t always be allowed for. If the change is too great and the side effects too many, then it becomes certain that the outcome will be far removed from anything you’ve planned and that it would be entirely unpredictable.”
Isaac Asimov, Forward the Foundation

H.P. Lovecraft
“Now that he is gone and the spell is broken, the actual fear is greater. Memories and possibilities are ever more hideous than realities.”
H.P. Lovecraft, Herbert West—Reanimator

John Wyndham
“And your oil engines are just a deplorable perversion – dirty, noisy, poisonous, and the cars you drive with them are barbarous, dangerous...”
Chocky in "Chocky”
John Wyndham, Chocky

David Brin
“It's said that 'power corrupts,' but actually it's more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power. When they do act, they think of it as service, which has limits. The tyrant, though, seeks mastery, for which he is insatiable, implacable.”
David Brin, The Postman
