„Apparently, there was dissension even among those beings who we could account as gods.“

—  Philip José Farmer
The Riverworld series, The Magic Labyrinth (1980), Context: According to Burton, the Ethical who talked to him did not agree with his fellows. Apparently, there was dissension even among those beings who we could account as gods. Dispute or discord in Olympus, if I may draw such a parallel. Though I do not think that the so-called Ethicals are gods, angels, or demons. They are human beings like us but advanced to a higher ethical plane. What their disagreement is, I frankly do not know. Perhaps it is about the means used to achieve a goal. Ch. 19

„It was like no hell or heaven of which he had ever heard or read, and he had thought that he was acquainted with every theory of the afterlife.“

—  Philip José Farmer
The Riverworld series, To Your Scattered Bodies Go (1971), Context: It was like no hell or heaven of which he had ever heard or read, and he had thought that he was acquainted with every theory of the afterlife. He had died. Now he was alive. He had scoffed all his life at a life-after-death. For once, he could not deny that he had been wrong. But there was no one present to say, "I told you so, you damned infidel!" Of all the millions, he alone was awake. Chapter 1 (pp. 3-4)

„Eyes forward! Sing a paean to the light
That God gives us to net the distant stars
In eyes that once were blinded with black earth.“

—  Philip José Farmer
Sestina of the Space Rocket (1953), Context: Eyes forward! Sing a paean to the light That God gives us to net the distant stars In eyes that once were blinded with black earth. Man had no time for aught but toll, no space For aught but war. Yet God, in His great love, Has cleared our eyes and given a hint of Power.

„We too. No wisdom to utter.
You've beauty, flux, and terror
To tell. So've I.“

—  Philip José Farmer
Context: We too. No wisdom to utter. You've beauty, flux, and terror To tell. So've I. And they're Very hard to mutter Through so much chatter and stutter. "Black Squirrel on Cottonwood Limb's Tip" in Skyhook #23 (Winter 1954-55); re-published in Pearls From Peoria (2006)
