    Do more, bear witness of your weakness to others,
    Not to mortify your own flesh (God knows you're sorry)
    But so that those with ears to hear (also God's gift)
    Perchance will themselves not feel so alone.
    (From the poem 'The Troll' by Brian Johnston.)

    Science fiction writers, I am sorry to say, really do not know anything. We can't talk about science, because our knowledge of it is limited and unofficial, and usually our fiction is dreadful.
    (Philip K. Dick (1928-1982), U.S. science fiction writer. "How to Build a Universe That Doesn't Fall Apart Two Days Later," introduction, I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon (1986).)

    I don't know much about death and the sorriest lesson I've learned is that words, my most trusted guardians against chaos, offer small comfort in the face of anyone's dying.

    One must feel sorry for those who have strange tastes, but never insult them. Their wrong is Nature's too; they are no more responsible for having come into the world with tendencies unlike ours than are we for being born bandy-legged or well- proportioned.

    I don't know about bores. Maybe you shouldn't feel too sorry if you see some swell girl getting married to them. They don't hurt anybody most of them, and maybe they're all terrific whistlers or something. Who the hell knows? Not me.
    (J.D. (Jerome David) Salinger (b. 1919), U.S. author. The narrator (Holden Caulfield), in The Catcher in the Rye, ch. 17 (1951).)

    One of the silliest lines ever said in a feature film came from Love Story, the 1970s hit, which immortalized the phrase, "Love means never having to say you're sorry." There are few people who would actually want to share a life with someone who held that concept near and dear.
    (Marge Kennedy (20th century), U.S. author. 100 Things You Can Do to Keep Your Family Together..., Part 4 (1994).)
