What Comes to the Surface, Part 1

All of these blurbs and bits are things that come to mind while I work on other stories. Some are quotes from other people; some are my own.

“The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, and prejudices — to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill. And suspicion can destroy. And a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all its own – for the children… and the children yet unborn.” — Rod Serling, “The Monsters are Due on Maple Street.”

All you know of a person’s identity is what he or she tells you. That goes for yourself, too.

“I hope life isn’t a big joke, because I don’t get it.” — Jack Handey

No matter what you write, someone will get offended by it. And if you go out of your way to not offend anyone, I’ll probably get offended.

The terrible things we get up to while trying to prove something to someone could fill a book. Wait… they already do.

One thought on “What Comes to the Surface, Part 1”

  1. I would have to request a “like” button because sometimes, I just don’t know what to say… but I want you to know I was here, and liked what I read. Though I suppose I could just say “I was here and I liked what I read.” Ok, never mind, carry on. 🙂
