William Gibson
“The future is already here – it's just not evenly distributed.

The Economist, December 4, 2003
William Gibson

Arthur Schopenhauer
“If children were brought into the world by an act of pure reason alone, would the human race continue to exist? Would not a man rather have so much sympathy with the coming generation as to spare it the burden of existence, or at any rate not take it upon himself to impose that burden upon it in cold blood?”
Arthur Schopenhauer, Studies in Pessimism: The Essays

Ursula K. Le Guin
“The individual cannot bargain with the State. The State recognizes no coinage but power: and it issues the coins itself.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Dispossessed

“What kind of a world do we live in that has room for dog yoga but not for Esperanto?”
Arika Okrent, In the Land of Invented Languages: Esperanto Rock Stars, Klingon Poets, Loglan Lovers, and the Mad Dreamers Who Tried to Build a Perfect Language

John dos Passos
“What's the use of a lague of nations if it's to be dominated by Great Britain and her colonies?" said Mr. Rasmussen sourly. "But don't you think any kind of a league's better than nothing?" said Eveline. "It's not the name you give things, it's who's getting theirs underneath that counts," said Robbins.

"That's a very cynical remark," said the California woman. "This isn't any time to be cynical."

"This is a time," said Robbins, "when if we weren't cynical we'd shoot ourselves.”
John dos Passos, 1919
