Conversation is like playing tennis with a ball made of Krazy Putty that keeps coming back over the net in a different shape.
They were so ignorant! Young men and women, educated very carefully to be apolitical, to be technicians who thought they disliked politics, making them Putty in the hands of their rulers, just like always.

Who hath not met with home-made bread, A heavy compound of Putty and lead And home-made wines that rack the head, And home-made liquors and waters? Home-made pop that will not foam, And home-made dishes that drive one from home * * * * * * Home-made by the homely daughters.thomas hood

In the universe people are in, people put their hands through the walls, and it turns out they're living in another century entirely. ... I often have the feeling and it does show up in my books that this is all just a stage.philip kindred dick
