An excellent mystery with the mix of Asimov's Robot fiction and a not too gritty New York cop. Best read after I Robot to get the full appreciation of the positron in brain but this is a mix of mystery, Science and Asimov's way of not only looks and ...more

William Ralph Inge
“The whole of nature is a conjugation of the verb to eat, in the active and passive.”
William Ralph Inge

Homer
“Now from his breast into the eyes the ache
of longing mounted, and he wept at last,
his dear wife, clear and faithful, in his arms,
longed for as the sunwarmed earth is longed for by a swimmer
spent in rough water where his ship went down
under Poseidon's blows, gale winds and tons of sea.
Few men can keep alive through a big serf
to crawl, clotted with brine, on kindly beaches
in joy, in joy, knowing the abyss behind:
and so she too rejoiced, her gaze upon her husband,
her white arms round him pressed as though forever.”
Homer, The Odyssey

“We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form.”
William Ralph Inge

Douglas Adams
“It's unpleasantly like being drunk."
"What's so unpleasant about being drunk?"
"You ask a glass of water.”
