Frasi Michael Swanwick

„Can you really kill the Goddess?“

—  Michael Swanwick, The Iron Dragon's Daughter
The Iron Dragon's Daughter (1993), Jane asked. “You stupid gobbet of flesh! Don’t you understand yet? There is no Goddess.” “No,” Jane cried. “You said yourself—” “I lied,” the dragon said with a fearful complacency. “Everyone you have ever met has lied to you. Life exists, and all who live are born to suffer. The best moments are fleeting and bought with the coin of exquisite torment. All attachments end. All loved ones die. All that you value passes away. In such a vexatious existence laughter is madness and joy is folly. Shall we accept that it all happens for no reason, with no cause? That there is nobody to blame but ourselves but that accepting the responsibility is pointless for doing so cannot ease, defer, or deaden the pain? Not likely! It is so much more comforting to erect a straw figure on which to blame it all. “Some bow down before the Goddess and others curse her every name. There is not a fart’s difference between the two approaches. They cling to the fiction of the Goddess because admitting the alternative is unbearable.” Chapter 19 (pp. 339-340)

„Now here is a treasure, Averroës Commentaries on Aristotle in a tolerable translation from the Arabic by Gerard of Cremona.“

—  Michael Swanwick, Jack Faust
Jack Faust (1997), He lasciviously stroked the red leather boards, knowing well how his pupil ached for the chance to pore through it. “A liar’s gloss on a liar’s lies. Surely this is a rare criminal.” Chapter 1, “Trinity” (p. 7)

„Out of doors on a moonless night?“

—  Michael Swanwick, Jack Faust
Jack Faust (1997), Mette sneered. “Only fools, footpads, and astrologers stray where there is no light.” Chapter 4, “Flight” (p. 57)

„Good men are dying at this very moment to protect you, your factories, your possessions, and all civilization.“

—  Michael Swanwick, Jack Faust
Jack Faust (1997), “Good men are dying every moment,” Gretchen replied coldly, “somewhere. Since they did not ask my leave to do so, I feel no particular obligation toward them.” Chapter 13, “Tabloids” (p. 219)

„Paid off? Do you mean bribery?“

—  Michael Swanwick, Jack Faust
Jack Faust (1997), “That is, umm, not an entirely pleasant word for it.” Dreschler’s doughy face took on a pained expression. “It is more in the nature of an advance payment to ensure the labor force will be satisfied with the negotiated wage schedules.” Chapter 15, “The Abortion” (p. 265)
