Quote of the Day: In a mature society, “civil servant” is semantically equal to “civil master.”
Just finished reading Time Enough for Love for the umpteenth time, and that one stuck in my head. Again.
One of my all-time favorite books. My uncle introduced LL to me when I was a teenager. That was right about the time I was first reading Ayn Rand, too. So the corruption of my dear innocent soul by nefarious libertarian mind-control methods proceeded apace.
My first introduction to LL came via a tagline to a FidoNet post by our own illustrious host. Yes, I am old. Shut up. I don’t want to know that you had to Google FidoNet because you were totally like, WTF is FidoNet?
And just to show that aged brains retain only the most important information, I’m pretty sure the tag was; “Always store beer in a dark place. – Lazarus Long”
Good one, Stephen. And thanks for the reminder to reread it.
How about this passage from Friday?
I’m pretty sure that is my favorite book, ever.
Until now, I thought that was a little weird. Now, I know it is.
To quote my wife: “Being called weird in this family is considered a compliment!”
