Upbeat Cynicism

Quote of the day

“Few of us will ever fully understand what has come to pass — perhaps none, as strange as it was and is. Surely we cannot foresee how far or how mightily the aftermath will reach, whether out among the comets or onward to trouble the stars. A man and a woman searched back through time, bewildered, hunted, alone. Two lives met across death and centuries. To ask what it meant is meaningless. There is no destiny. But sometimes there is bravery.”

— Poul Anderson, The Stars Are Also Fire (which is criminally out of print at the moment, it seems)
