THE QUOTABLE QUOTE OF THE DAY

The human eye is a wonderful device. With a little effort, it can fail to see even the most glaring injustice.
Richard K. Morgan
To all science fiction aficionados, I heartily recommend reading Altered Carbon, the début novel, by Richard K. Morgan. I consider it to be one of the best examples of the cyberpunk sub-genre, as it seamlessly blends elements of hardcore cyberpunk with an elaborate noir mystery narrative. You can find my review for the book here.
The aforementioned quote comes from a character who doesn’t actually appear in the book, although she is referenced frequently by Takeshi Kovacs, the book’s protagonist. Quellcrist Falconer is the alias of an historical figure in Altered Carbon’s 26th century setting who was a radical female revolutionary/political activist who founded a new “religion” that became to be known as Quellism.
Unforgettable quotes of fantasy and science fiction literature. The long and the brief; the funny and the serious; the whimsical and the dramatic.
