„It is a magic book. Words mean things. When you put them together they speak.“

—  Samuel R. Delany, buch Equinox

Equinox (1973)
Kontext: It is a magic book. Words mean things. When you put them together they speak. Yes, sometimes they flatten out and nothing they say is real, and that is one kind of magic. But sometimes a vision will rip up from them and shriek and clank wings clear as the sweat smudge on the paper under your thumb. And that is another kind. (p. 163)
