„I think of religions as franchise operations.“

—  William Gibson
Context: I think of religions as franchise operations. Like chicken franchise operations. But that doesn't mean there's no chicken, right? Referring to his belief that it's possible for religions to help people.

„They were a traumatized lot, those boys. And I just felt frivolous.“

—  William Gibson
Context: Consequently, when I got to Toronto, much to my chagrin, I really, really couldn't handle hanging out with the American draft dodgers. There was too much clinical depression. Too much suicide. Too much hardcore substance abuse. They were a traumatized lot, those boys. And I just felt frivolous.

„Sometimes it’s good to remember.“

—  William Gibson
Context: “You were hurt,” Kumiko said, looking at the scar. Sally looked down. “Yeah.” “Why don’t you have it removed?” “Sometimes it’s good to remember.” “Being hurt?” “Being stupid.” Ch. 22

„The lane to the land of the dead.“

—  William Gibson
Context: The lane to the land of the dead. Where you are, my friend. Marie-France, my lady, she prepared this road, but her lord choked her off before I could read the book of her days. Neuro from the nerves, the silver paths. Romancer. Necromancer. I call up the dead. But no, my friend," and the boy did a little dance, brown feet printing the sand, "I am the dead, and their land." He laughed. A gull cried, "Stay. If your woman is a ghost, she doesn't know it. Neither will you."

„They damaged his nervous system with a wartime Russian mycotoxin.“

—  William Gibson
Context: They damaged his nervous system with a wartime Russian mycotoxin. Strapped to a bed in a Memphis hotel, his talent burning out micron by micron, he hallucinated for thirty hours. The damage was minute, subtle, and utterly effective. For Case, who'd lived for the bodiless exultation of cyberspace, it was the Fall.

„Acceptance. Acceptance of the impermanence of being.“

—  William Gibson
Context: Acceptance. Acceptance of the impermanence of being. And acceptance of the imperfect nature of being, or possibly the perfect nature of being, depending on how one looks at it. Acceptance that this is not a rehearsal. That this is it. When asked what will save humanity.
