― Ray Bradbury,
“And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual. This is what I am and what I am about.”
― John Steinbeck,
Neuromancer, the boy said, slitting long gray eyes against the rising sun. The lane to the land of the dead. Neuro from the nerves, the silver paths. Romancer. Necromancer. I call up the dead. I am the dead, and their land.
William Gibson – Neueomancer (1984)
“We shall meet in the place where there is no darkness.”
George Orwell, 1984
