Science fiction is any idea that occurs in the head and doesn't exist yet but soon will and will change everything for everybody and nothing will ever be the same again. As soon as you have an idea that changes some small part of the world you are writing science fiction. It is always the art of the possible never the impossible.

You fail only if you stop writing.

We are an impossibility in an impossible universe.

We are the miracle of force and matter making itself over into imagination and will. Incredible. The Life Force experimenting with forms. You for one. Me for another. The Universe has shouted itself alive. We are one of the shouts.

The important thing is to be in love with something.

When I graduated from high school it was during the Depression and we had no money.

Love is easy and I love writing. You can't resist love. You get an idea someone says something and you're in love.

My goal is to entertain myself and others.

We're all dreamers.

You don't read in your own field. You read in that field when you're young so that you can learn.

When you're older you want to learn from other people.

Living at risk is jumping off the cliff and building your wings on the way down.

The answer to all writing to any career for that matter is love.

I know you've heard it a thousand times before. But it's true - hard work pays off. If you want to be good you have to practice practice practice. If you don't love something then don't do it.

Everything is generated through your own will power.

If you're living in your time you cannot help but to write about the things that are important.

You don't have to turn on the TV set. You don't have to work on the Internet. It's up to you.

I don't have a computer. A computer's a typewriter. I already have a typewriter.

I have total recall. I remember being born. I remember being in the womb I remember being inside. Coming out was great.

I think the reason my stories have been so successful is that I have a strong sense of metaphor.
