"The problem, clearly, isn't that we have a shortage of time. It's more that we have an overload of everything else. "

The Teutonic reputation for brutality is well-founded. Their operas last for several days and they have no word for "fluffy".

"The extension of his personal domain from the bureaucracy, where all was tidy and the staff was (or had until lately seemed to be) obedient and loyal, to the rough and tumble of military affairs was proving to be a mixed blessing. ... There was also the prospect, novel and unwelcome, that he might be engaged with enemies who would actually be able to shoot back -- a development which opened all sorts of alarming possibilities."

-Alan Clark, Barbarossa

A few from Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451:

“Books were only one type of receptacle where we stored a lot of things we were afraid we might forget. There is nothing magical in them, at all. The magic is only in what books say, how they stitched the patches of the universe together into one garment for us.”

“Remember, the firemen are rarely necessary. The public itself stopped reading of its own accord.”

"Don't ask for guarantees. And don't look to be saved in any one thing, person, machine, or library. Do your own bit of saving, and if you drown, at least die knowing you were headed for shore.”

"The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom, power without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than about peace, more about killing than we know about living."
