Harlan Ellison

You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.

I know that pain is the most important thing in the universes. Greater than survival, greater than love, greater even than the beauty it brings about. For without pain, there can be no pleasure. Without sadness, there can be no happiness. Without misery there can be no beauty. And without these, life is endless, hopeless, doomed and damned. 
Adult. You have become adult.

The ability to dream is all I have to give. That is my responsibility; that is my burden. And even I grow tired.

The two most common elements in the universe are Hydrogen and stupidity.

If you make people think they're thinking, they'll love you; but if you really make them think, they'll hate you.

I don't mind you thinking I'm stupid, but don't talk to me like I'm stupid.

The world is turning into a cesspool of imbeciles.

In these days of widespread illiteracy, functional illiteracy... anything that keeps people stupid is a felony.
