Citáty Theodore Sturgeon

„We don’t believe anything we don’t want to believe.“

—  Theodore Sturgeon, kniha More Than Human

Zdroj: More Than Human (1953), Chapter 2 “Baby is Three”, p. 94
Kontext: That’s fairly common. We don’t believe anything we don’t want to believe.

„The idiot heard the sounds, but they had no meaning for him.“

—  Theodore Sturgeon, kniha More Than Human

Zdroj: More Than Human (1953), Chapter 1 “The Fabulous Idiot”, p. 1
Kontext: The idiot heard the sounds, but they had no meaning for him. He lived inside somewhere, apart, and the little link between word and significance hung broken.

„90% of everything is crap.“

—  Theodore Sturgeon

Venture Science Fiction (March 1958) The original expression of this has often been declared to have been "Sure, ninety percent of science fiction is crud. That's because ninety percent of everything is crud." According to Philip Klass Sturgeon made the remark during a talk at New York University around 1951. It has also commonly appeared in variant forms such as "Ninety percent of everything is crap" and is often referred to as "Sturgeon's Law" — though he himself gave that title to another phrase:
Varianta: Ninety percent of everything is crud.
Kontext: I repeat Sturgeon's Revelation, which was wrung out of me after twenty years of wearying defense of science fiction against attacks of people who used the worst examples of the field for ammunition, and whose conclusion was that ninety percent of it is crud.
The Revelation: Ninety percent of everything is crud.
Corollary 1: The existence of immense quantities of trash in science fiction is admitted and it is regrettable; but it is no more unnatural than the existence of trash anywhere.
Corollary 2: The best science fiction is as good as the best fiction in any field.

„Science fiction, outside of poetry, is the only literary field which has no limits, no parameters whatsoever.“

—  Theodore Sturgeon

As quoted in an interview with David Duncan http://www.physics.emory.edu/~weeks/misc/duncan.html
Kontext: Science fiction, outside of poetry, is the only literary field which has no limits, no parameters whatsoever. You can go not only into the future, but into that wonderful place called "other", which is simply another universe, another planet, another species.

„Ask the next question.“

—  Theodore Sturgeon

His explanation of the meaning of a small symbol he used when writing his signature, as quoted in an interview with David Duncan (with an image of his signature) http://www.physics.emory.edu/~weeks/misc/duncan.html.
Varianta: Ask the next question. And the one after that.
Kontext: It means "Ask the next question." Ask the next question, and the one that follows that, and the one that follows that. It's the symbol of everything humanity has ever created, and is the reason it has been created. This guy is sitting in a cave and he says, "Why can't man fly?" Well, that's the question. The answer may not help him, but the question now has been asked.
The next question is what? How? And so all through the ages, people have been trying to find out the answer to that question. We've found the answer, and we do fly. This is true of every accomplishment, whether it's technology or literature, poetry, political systems or anything else. That is it. Ask the next question. And the one after that.
