Five Quotes

  1. Revenge is for dreams…never for reality.
  2. I’m not much interested in extrapolating science and technology; I merely use extrapolation as a means of putting people into new quandaries which produce colourful pressures and conflicts.
  3. Most science fiction, quite frankly, is silly nonsense.
  4. I’m a great believer in people and their untapped potential.
  5. The mind is the reality. You are what you think.

Bester was an American science fiction author who wrote The Demolished Man, winner of the inaugural Hugo Award. The Science Fiction Writers of America (SFWA) named Bester its ninth Grand Master.
