Gene Wolfe QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A youthful American voice isn't particularly challenging - I've been a young American, and they're all around me. I can walk from my house to Barrington High School.
Quotation of Gene Wolfe
Ambiguity is necessary in some of my stories, not in all. In those, it certainly contributes to the richness of the story. I doubt that thematic closure is never attainable.
Quotation of Gene Wolfe
He's not rewarding us by talking to us. He's talking to us because He has something to say to us directly, as opposed to the things He says to all humanity.
Quotation of Gene Wolfe
I began with Teutonic Myth: Valhalla above, the elves below. When I needed another layer, I added one. The lowest is not Muspel.
Quotation of Gene Wolfe
I began with the idea of writing about a good man in a bad religion. That's all.
Quotation of Gene Wolfe
I don't think anyone is more intrinsically holy. People experience God in many ways; and it seems to me that God does what the rest of us do: He chooses the means that best gets His message across.

I've boxed, though not professionally.
Quotation of Gene Wolfe
Knowledge is soon changed, then lost in the mist, an echo half-heard.
Quotation of Gene Wolfe
My whole life experience feeds into my writing. I think that must be true for every writer. Clearly the Army and combat were major influences; just the same, you need to understand that many of the writers we have now couldn't load a revolver.
Quotation of Gene Wolfe
NASA has suffered two disastrous crashes, the Challenger and the sainted Columbia. Both were vehicle failures. It needs a better boat.
Quotation of Gene Wolfe
Online publication is fine with me, in part because I hope to collect those stories later.
Quotation of Gene Wolfe
Rosemary is diabetic and has difficulty walking any great distance. Stairs are very hard for her. I have glaucoma. We're well otherwise.
Quotation of Gene Wolfe
The US military is already spread too thin. Sending American troops into Liberia was not only foolish but foolhardy.
Quotation of Gene Wolfe
What would I do with NASA? Obviously that would depend on how much money I had to work with. But basically I'd put more effort into spaceboat development and less into flying missions of dubious worth.
Quotation of Gene Wolfe
Whether the medium is ready for consumers is better judged by those consumers. I sometimes read online - but not often. The stigma is attached to pay scales. Much online publication is no pay or small pay.
Quotation of Gene Wolfe
You seem to think that the only genuine existence evil can have is conscious existence - that no one is evil unless he admits it to himself. I disagree.
