„I think of religions as franchise operations.“

—  William Gibson
No Maps for These Territories (2000), 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.

„Everything to Fontaine, had a story.“

—  William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
All Tomorrow's Parties‎ (2003), Context: If Skinner couldn't tell Fontaine a story about something, Fontaine would make up his own story, read function in the shape of something, read use in the way it was worn down. It seemed to comfort him. Everything to Fontaine, had a story. Each object, each fragment comprising the built world. A chorus of voices, the past alive in everything, that sea upon which the present tossed and rode. When he'd built Skinner's funicular, the elevator that crawled like a small cable car up the angled iron of the tower, when they old man's hip had gotten too bad to allow him to easily climb, Fontaine had a story about the derivation of each piece. He wove their stories together, applied electricity: the thing rose, clicking, to the hatch in the floor of Skinner's room. Ch. 38 : Vincent Black Lightning, p. 191

„Beyond ego, beyond personality, beyond awareness, he moved“

—  William Gibson, Neuromancer
Neuromancer (1984), Context: He came in steep, fueled by self-loathing. When the Kuang program met the first of the defenders, scattering the leaves of light, he felt the shark thing lose a degree of substantiality, the fabric of information loosening. And then — old alchemy of the brain and its vast pharmacy — his hate flowed into his hands. In the instant before he drove Kuang's sting through the base of the first tower, he attained a level of proficiency exceeding anything he'd known or imagined. Beyond ego, beyond personality, beyond awareness, he moved, Kuang moving with him, evading his attackers with an ancient dance, Hideo's dance, grace of the mind-body interface granted him, in that second, by the clarity and singleness of his wish to die.

„The Tao, he reminds himself, is older than God.“

—  William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
All Tomorrow's Parties‎ (2003), Context: The man steps past them, his cheeks seamed vertically in deep parentheses, as though it has been his habit frequently to smile. They do not see him smile. The Tao, he reminds himself, is older than God. Ch. 4 : Formal Absences of Precious Things, p. 20

„The damage was minute, subtle, and utterly effective.“

—  William Gibson, Neuromancer
Neuromancer (1984), 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.
