Good poem on Riding Effortlessly, William Gibson qoutes

This is worth looking at, I love this guy’s poetry.

Also, I like William Gibson. He’s written lot’s of books, kind of the father of cyber-punk science fiction. Here are some of my favorite sayings by Gibson:

“Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounded by assholes.”

“The future is already here – it’s just not evenly distributed.”

“The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.”

“The deadliest bullshit is odorless, and transparent.”

“I think I’d probably tell you that it’s easier to desire and pursue the attention of tens of millions of total strangers than it is to accept the love and loyalty of the people closest to us.”

“When you want to know how things really work, study them when they’re coming apart.”

“One of the liberating effects of science fiction when I was a teenager was precisely its ability to tune me into all sorts of strange data and make me realize that I wasn’t as totally isolated in perceiving the world as being monstrous and crazy”

“Stand high long enough and your lightning will come.”

“He took a duck in the face at 250 knots.”

“We see in order to move; we move in order to see.”

“There must be some Tommy Hilfiger event horizon, beyond which it is impossible to be more derivative, more removed from the source, more devoid of soul.”

“And don’t forget to water the fuckin’ goldfish.”

“I’m away for a while. But there’s no cash on the premises, no drugs, and the pitbull’s tested positive. Twice.”

“If you knew enough Greek, she thought, you could assemble a word that meant divination via the pattern of grease left on a paper plate by broasted potatoes. But it would be a long word.”

“Somewhere, deep within her, surfaces a tiny clockwork submarine. There are times when you can only take the next step. And then another.”

“Whenever the media do try to pick it up, it slides like a lone noodle from their chopsticks.”

That’s all for now, folks
