Call for Comments - Quotable Quotes
Labels: Call for Comments
This past weekend I spent a few hours at New York's Museum of Modern Art and left with the creative part of my brain both inspired and intimidated. Now, I'm not looking to place anything there but I may be able to put together a cool piece or two for the rather bare library.
So I'm looking for a few shortish quotes from seminal SFF works. I threw together the list below earlier today. I don't know what I will end up using but any and all suggests are welcome. Even I end up using a quote you suggest, there may even be a free book in there for you.
"I've watched through his eyes, I've listened through his ears, and I tell you he's the one." - Ender's Game
"The enemy's gate is down" - Ender's Game
"The man in black fled across the desert, and the Gunslinger followed' - The Gunslinger
"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit." - The Hobbit
"The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel." - Neuromancer
"Reality is the part that refuses to go away when I stop believing in it" -Philip K. Dick
"One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them" - The Fellowship of the Ring
"Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die" - The Fellowship of the Ring
"What is history but a fable agreed upon?" - Napoleon
Bonus Points [and by bonus points I mean I will send you a free book] if you have a copy of The Yiddish Policeman's Union and can pull a specific quote. Something about the minute hand snapping off moments of eternity. I can't really do it justice, so any help would be appreciated. I also may need to pull some Norman Partridge off the shelf. Solid stuff there.
