Popular Quotes

“I think I exist, therefore I exist. I think.”
― David Gerrold, The Man Who Folded Himself

 “I have a very simple philosophy of life:

Kindness. Ferocious, unrelenting, ruthless, committed, passionate, kindness.

Life is sacred everywhere. We all have better things to do than beat each other up.

Arguing for the exception is to invest it with energy, it’s to negotiate the loophole. The commitment to kindness must be total.”
― David Gerrold

“To say that a writer’s hold on reality is tenuous is an understatement-it’s like saying the Titanic had a rough crossing. Writer’s build their own realities, move into them and occasionally send letters home. The only difference between a writer and a crazy person is that a writer gets paid for it.”
― David Gerrold

 “Morality—like velocity—is relative. The determination of it depends on what the objects around you are doing. All one can do is measure one’s position in relation to them; never can one measure one’s velocity or morality in terms of absolutes.”
― David Gerrold, Star Hunt

 “Somewhere there exists all the possible variations of all the possible people I could be. I could be any of them- but I cannot be all. I can only be one of the variations. I will be the variation of myself that pleases me the most.”
― David Gerrold, The Man Who Folded Himself

 “Life is hard. Then you die. Then they throw dirt in your face. Then the worms eat you. Be grateful it happens in that order”
― David Gerrold

― David Gerrold, A Matter for Men

 “The secret of the universe is this: The universe doesn’t care. That part of the job is yours.”
― David Gerrold

One Final Bonus – David Gerrold Quote 

“Something went klunk. Like a nickel dropping in a soda machine. One of those small insights that explains everything. This was puberty for these boys. Adolescence. The first date, the first kiss, the first chance to hold hands with someone special. Delayed, postponed, a decade’s worth of longing–while everybody around you celebrates life, you pretend, suppress, inhibit, deprive yourself of you own joy–but finally ultimately, eventually, you find a place where you can have a taste of everything denied.”
― David Gerrold
