Robert Anson Heinlein bol americký spisovateľ, jeden z najvýznamnejších predstaviteľov vedeckej fantastiky. Objavil nové témy, nové techniky a prístupy. Bol to prvý spisovateľ sci-fi, ktorému na konci 40. rokov vyšli pravé vedecko-fantastické príbehy vo všeobecných časopisoch, a bol autorom prvého vedecko-fantastického románového bestselleru v 60. rokoch. Hlavné témy jeho diel boli spoločenské: radikálny individualizmus, slobodná vôľa, náboženstvo, vzťah medzi fyzickou a emocionálnou láskou a špekulácie o vzťahu rodiny a neortodoxnej spoločnosti.

Citáty Robert Anson Heinlein

„Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.“

—  Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land
"Jubal Harshaw" in the first edition (1961); the later 1991 "Uncut" edition didn't have this line, because it was one Heinlein had added when he went through and trimmed the originally submitted manuscript on which the "Uncut" edition is based. Heinlein also later used a variant of this in The Cat Who Walks Through Walls where he has Xia quote Harshaw: "Dr. Harshaw says that 'the word "love" designates a subjective condition in which the welfare and happiness of another person are essential to one's own happiness.'"

„I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.“

—  Robert A. Heinlein
Context: I will accept the rules that you feel necessary to your freedom. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.

„You have attributed conditions to villainy that simply result from stupidity.“

—  Robert A. Heinlein, The Green Hills of Earth
“Logic of Empire”, p. 335; this is one of the earliest known variants of an idea which has become known as Hanlon's razor.

„If a country can't save itself through the volunteer service of its own free people, then I say : Let the damned thing go down the drain!“

—  Robert A. Heinlein
Context: I also think there are prices too high to pay to save the United States. Conscription is one of them. Conscription is slavery, and I don't think that any people or nation has a right to save itself at the price of slavery for anyone, no matter what name it is called. We have had the draft for twenty years now; I think this is shameful. If a country can't save itself through the volunteer service of its own free people, then I say : Let the damned thing go down the drain! Guest of Honor Speech at the 29th World Science Fiction Convention, Seattle, Washington (1961) The Quotable Heinlein http://www.quotableheinlein.com/html/home.html

„Each generation thinks it invented sex“

—  Robert A. Heinlein
Context: Each generation thinks it invented sex; each generation is totally mistaken. Anything along that line today was commonplace both in Pompeii and in Victorian England; the differences lie only in the degree of coverup — if any. Introduction to "Cliff and the Calories," in Expanded Universe, (1980), pg. 355
