„Deus dividiu-se numa miríade de partes para que pudesse ter amigos.“

—  Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough for Love

Isto pode não ser verdade, mas soa bem -- e não é mais tolo do que qualquer outra teologia.
"God split himself into a myriad parts that he might have friends." This may not be true, but it sounds good—and is no sillier than any other theology.
Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough for Love, 1973, Página 216.

„The hardest part about gaining any new idea is sweeping out the false idea occupying that niche. As long as that niche is occupied, evidence and proof and logical demonstration get nowhere.“

—  Robert A. Heinlein, livro The Cat Who Walks Through Walls

Gwen Novak (Hazel Stone); chapter 18, p. 230
The Cat Who Walks Through Walls (1985)
Contexto: The hardest part about gaining any new idea is sweeping out the false idea occupying that niche. As long as that niche is occupied, evidence and proof and logical demonstration get nowhere. But once the niche is emptied of the wrong idea that has been filling it — once you can honestly say, "I don't know", then it becomes possible to get at the truth.

„Life is short, but the years are long.“

—  Robert A. Heinlein, livro Methuselah's Children

Part of the secret "call and response" codewords by which members of the long-lived Howard Families can identify others:
: Life is short.
But the years are long.
Not while the evil days come not.
Methuselah's Children (1958)

„Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.“

—  Robert A. Heinlein, livro Stranger in a Strange Land

"Jubal Harshaw" in the first edition (1961); the later 1991 "Uncut" edition didn't have this line, because it was one Heinlein had added when he went through and trimmed the originally submitted manuscript on which the "Uncut" edition is based. Heinlein also later used a variant of this in The Cat Who Walks Through Walls where he has Xia quote Harshaw: "Dr. Harshaw says that 'the word "love" designates a subjective condition in which the welfare and happiness of another person are essential to one's own happiness.'"
