“Reinhardt regarded the mysteries of the Universe not as indifferent questions of physics or chemistry but as implacable malicious foes. They were to be assaulted with science, vanquished at any cost, forced to yield their treasure trove of knowledge.”
–Alan Dean Foster
writing in The Black Hole
This is one in a series of quotations.
I’ve been working, from time to time, on a book of quotations for many years. I call it, “The Mind Boggles”, from one of my favorite quotations. I do source quotations a bit differently from a lot of people. In the case of a work of a fiction, I consider that the character said the line…not the author. As a bit of an author myself (in a minor way), I can tell you…my characters definitely say things that I would never say. These are all quotations that I’ve collected myself: I’ve read the book, seen the TV episode, and so on.
Hope you enjoy them!
