Kim Stanley Robinson Quote: If the amount of money going into the war economy were invested in landscape restoration, we would be in a far more positive position.

It will be a difficult century, and ugly, but I don't think that in the end people are so stupid as to kill themselves off.

Kim Stanley Robinson Saying: And in this curious state I had the realization, at the moment of seeing that stranger there, that I was a person like everybody else. That I was known by my actions and words, that my internal universe was unavailable for inspection by others. They didn't know. They didn't know, because I never told them.
