a book I borrowed from somebody & read a couple years ago
“Life is too easy to face the hard decisions, and so we plan, and watch, and wait, and hope, and are the compliant victims of the schemers and the madmen.” [Sammis to Loki]
“… and no man or god would know his place while blew the wild winds of time.”
“The universe has no gods and while some have the power of gods, those who thought they were indeed were mad.”
“The histories, the might-have-beens, the was and the were, the is and the are, warred upon each other. Through the black windows of time hung in front of us, battles never fought were fought, all at once, all together, and the new turning points of history and parahistory, of space and para-space, were hammered out in the fires of para-time.”
