„The only people who have the long view are some scientists and some science fiction writers. I have always lived in a world in which I'm just a spot in history.“

—  Sheri S. Tepper American fiction writer 1929 - 2016

Locus interview (1998)
Kontext: The only people who have the long view are some scientists and some science fiction writers. I have always lived in a world in which I'm just a spot in history. My life is not the important point. I'm just part of the continuum, and that continuum, to me, is a marvelous thing. The history of life, and the history of the planet, should go on and on and on and on. I cannot conceive of anything in the universe that has more meaning than that.

Original: (el) Η διαφορά δεξιάς-αριστεράς να ξέρετε είναι αυτή: ο αριστερός ζει στον φαντασιακό κόσμο, πάντα συζητάει για το τι θα ήθελε να συμβαίνει ο δεξιός, εμείς δηλαδή, ζούμε στον πραγματικό κόσμο κοιτάμε να δούμε τι μπορεί να γίνει
