What Comes to the Surface, Part 1

All of these blurbs and bits are things that come to mind while I work on other stories. Some are quotes from other people; some are my own.

“The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, and prejudices — to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill. And suspicion can destroy.

All you know of a person’s identity is what he or she tells you. That goes for yourself, too.

“I hope life isn’t a big joke, because I don’t get it.” — Jack Handey

The terrible things we get up to while trying to prove something to someone could fill a book. Wait… they already do.
