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

„When you want to know how things really work, study them when they're coming apart.“ Zero History

„Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation, by children being taught mathematical concepts... A graphic representation of data abstracted from banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding...“ Neuromancer


„Time moves in one direction, memory another. We are that strange species that constructs artifacts intended to counter the natural flow of forgetting.“ Distrust That Particular Flavor

Fully imagined cultural futures were the luxury of another day, one in which 'now' was of some greater duration. For us, of course, things can change so abruptly, so violently, so profoundly, that futures like our grandparents' have insufficient 'now' to stand on. We have no future because our present is too volatile.... We have only risk management. The spinning of the given moment's scenarios. Pattern recognition“ Pattern Recognition

„And, for an instant, she stared directly into those soft blue eyes and knew, with an instinctive mammalian certainty, that the exceedingly rich were no longer even remotely human.“ Count Zero
