Since today is his birthday I thought I'd share some of my favorite author's quotes:
The world is indeed comic, but the joke is on mankind.
If religion were true, its followers would not try to bludgeon their young into an artificial conformity; but would merely insist on their unbending quest for truth, irrespective of artificial backgrounds or practical consequences.
What a man does for pay is of little significance. What he is, as a sensitive instrument responsive to the world's beauty, is everything!
Heaven knows where I'll end up - but it's a safe bet that I'll never be at the top of anything! Nor do I particularly care to be.
I couldn't live a week without a private library - indeed, I'd part with all my furniture and squat and sleep on the floor before I'd let go of the 1500 or so books I possess.
I never ask a man what his business is, for it never interests me. What I ask him about are his thoughts and dreams.
H.P. Lovecraft 20 August 1890 - 15 March 1937
