Honoré de Balzac
“This coffee falls into your stomach, and straightway there is a general commotion. Ideas begin to move like the battalions of the Grand Army on the battlefield, and the battle takes place. Things remembered arrive at full gallop, ensign to the wind. The light cavalry of comparisons deliver a magnificent deploying charge, the artillery of logic hurry up with their train and ammunition, the shafts of wit start up like sharpshooters. Similes arise, the paper is covered with ink; for the struggle commences and is concluded with torrents of black water, just as a battle with powder.”
Honoré de Balzac

Neal Stephenson
“Shaftoe opens his eyes just as the tarp is being peeled back from the open top of the truck. He stares straight up into a blue Italian sky torn around the edges by the scrabbling branches of desperate trees. “Shit!” he says. “What’s wrong, Sarge?” “I just always say that when I wake up,” Shaftoe says.”
Neal Stephenson, Cryptonomicon

Austin Grossman
“When your laboratory explodes, lacing your body with a supercharged elixir, what do you do? You don't just lie there. You crawl out of the rubble, hideously scarred, and swear vengeance on the world. You keep going. You keep trying to take over the world.”
Austin Grossman, Soon I Will Be Invincible

William Gibson
“The future is there... looking back at us. Trying to make sense of the fiction we will have become.”
William Gibson, Pattern Recognition

“--and in fact, we humans need conflict just like we need language, to help us define who we are.”
Mark Stephen Meadows, Tea Time with Terrorists: A Motorcycle Journey into the Heart of Sri Lanka's Civil War
