"Picture: Half page. A bird of paradise on a telephone pole, being pointedly ignored by the crows. It's wearing brass goggles."
Sourcebook Ver 0.7

"Geniuses form connections with things that aren't 'really' there for most people. Their entire essence screams to reduce reality to a handful of elegant equations that are obviously, self-evidently true. The Peerage exists almost entirely to fight this tendency, because once a Genius believes he's figured it out, he's mad. The light eats out the back of his eyes and he'll probably never see straight again."
Being Inspired

"When I was in high school my teacher told me that there are more people alive today than have ever lived. Don't worry: she lied, then got cancer. (Not my fault.) We live atop a mountain of corpses. The Earth is swimming in humans, above and below the ground, so when I see you trying to raise the dead, I'm torn. On the one hand, I recognize your despair. On the other hand, do you really want to spend the rest of the week fending off a zombie apocalypse as the Earth vomits up her dead? AGAIN? Come on, man, think this through: every time you try this, we end up fighting zombies. I hate zombies. Just put the syringe down."
The Klagen on attempted resurrectionism.

"Stay humble. You're not a revolutionary scientist; you haven't figured it out. You're crazy just like the rest of us."
