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.

„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.

„The whole principle is wrong; it's like demanding that grown men live on skim milk because the baby can't eat steak.“

— Robert A. Heinlein
Context: How anybody expects a man to stay in business with every two-bit wowser in the country claiming a veto over what we can say and can't say and what we can show and what we can't show — it's enough to make you throw up. The whole principle is wrong; it's like demanding that grown men live on skim milk because the baby can't eat steak. On censorship, in The Man Who Sold the Moon (1950), p. 188; this may be the origin of a remark which in recent years has sometimes become misattributed to Mark Twain: Censorship is telling a man he can't have a steak just because a baby can't chew it.
