„AMICAE AETERNUM   Ellen Klages     I“ Reach for Infinity

„Coffee is a drink for grownups. No kid ever likes coffee. It’s psychoactive. Coffee is the drug of memory. I can remember the great cups of coffee of my life; the places, the faces, the words spoken. It never quite tastes the way it smells. If it did, we would drink it until our heads exploded with memory.“ Reach for Infinity

„Lucy glanced at him, sidelong. “Mr. Peretz, do I look any older now?” Pitar busied himself with the links of the necklace. He knew what he was hearing. One of those notorious female jabs that made male life so hazardous. This provocation had no proper answer. To say “no” was to accuse Lucy of still being a callow girl of seventeen. This meant that ten years of their marriage were capped with an insult. But to reply “yes” to Lucy, was to state that she had, yes, visibly aged – what a crass mis-step that would be! Lucy would swiftly demand to know what dark threat had wilted her beauty. Arsenical rock-dust fever? A vitamin imbalance in her skin?“ Edge of Infinity

„That’s what peace is, right? Postponing the conflict until the thing you were fighting over doesn’t matter.“ Edge of Infinity

„When your parents die, you finally take full possession of your life, and wonder how much of it has been shaped by conscious decision, and how much by inheritance in all its forms.“ Edge of Infinity

„The Dark Age was very much here, just not very well distributed.“ Meeting Infinity

„When people work for money, you can never pay them enough; when they work for what they believe, they’ll pay themselves.“ Reach for Infinity

„He’s sorry that he won’t be able to see Caitlin one more time. To tell her goodbye and that he loves her. He’s sorry he won’t get to see the consequences of his drive. Even through the screaming pain, a calmness and euphoria start to wash over him. It’s always been like this, he thinks. From when Moses saw the promised land that he could never enter, people have been on their deathbeds just wanting to see what happens next. He wonders if that’s what makes the promised land holy: that you can see it but you can’t quite reach it. The grass is always greener on the other side of personal extinction. It“ Edge of Infinity

„Four things do not come back: the spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, and the neglected opportunity“ The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year, Volume 2

„The bottom of the basin is a vast labyrinth of stone: mile-deep chasms; sharp reefs and table-flat mesas; crenellated buttes like castles surrounded by invisible moats. At“ The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year, Volume 2

„It was one of the most pernicious fallacies, common the world over: old ways are best. But old ways can outlast their usefulness. Old ways can live on pointlessly in worlds that have no room for them.“ The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year, Volume Nine

„Because Earth is like – it’s our parents’ house, and near-Earth is our first crappy apartment, and somewhere out there is New York City“ Edge of Infinity
