Famous quotes containing the words science fiction, fiction, killed and/or science:

    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)

    A predilection for genre fiction is symptomatic of a kind of arrested development.
    Thomas M. Disch (b. 1940)

    Plantin’ and readin’, plantin’ and readin’. Fill a man full of lead, stick ‘em in the ground, and then read words on ‘em. Why when ya killed a man, why try to read the Lord in as a partner on the job.
    Borden Chase [Frank Fowler] (1900–1971)

    There are two kinds of truth; the truth that lights the way and the truth that warms the heart. The first of these is science, and the second is art.... Without art science would be as useless as a pair of high forceps in the hands of a plumber. Without science art would become a crude mess of folklore and emotional quackery.
    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)
