„That would have to be the F-word.“

— Michelle Pfeiffer American actress 1958
Context: That would have to be the F-word. Do you want me to say it? It's so descriptive, it can be used in so many ways — it can be used lovingly, it can be used in the most hateful — it's just very versatile... and you know, it's just, sometimes no other word will do.

„I think that the soul of fantasy—or second-world fantasy at least—is our problematic relationship with nostalgia.“

— Daniel Abraham speculative fiction writer from the United States 1969
Context: I don't find fantasy to be more or less suited to philosophical questions than any other genre, really. I think that the soul of fantasy—or second-world fantasy at least—is our problematic relationship with nostalgia. The impulse to return to a golden age seems to be pretty close to the bone, at least in western cultures, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if it's a human universal. For me, it's tied up with the experience of aging and the impulse to recapture youth. Epic fantasy, I think, takes its power from that. We create golden eras and either celebrate them or—more often—mourn their loss. Interview with Peter Orullian http://orullian.com/writing/danielabraham_interview.html
