Love is a strange master, and human nature is still stranger.

‘All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us’ —
J.R.R. Tolkein, excerpt from Fellowship of the Ring
The past is a script we are constantly rewriting.
“That was my problem then and it’s my problem now; I have a bad attitude. In a nutshell, I fear authority but at the same time I resent it — the authority and my own fear — so I rebel. And writing SF is a way to rebel. … SF is a rebellious art form and it needs writers and readers and bad attitudes — an attitude of “Why?” or “How come?” or “Who says?”
Philip K Dick, From the forward to The Golden Man
If There Were No Thunder, Men Would Have Little Fear of Lightning — Jules Verne
