Ender’s Game

Humans are free except when Humanity needs them. Maybe humanity needs you. To do something.

Humanity does not ask us to be happy. It merely asks us to be brilliant on its behalf.

There are times when the world is rearranging itself, and at times like that, the right words can change the world.

It’s not my fault I’m twelve right now. And it’s not my fault that right now is when the opportunity is open. Right now is the time when I can shape events. The world is always a democracy in times of flux, and the man with the best voice will win.

In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him. I think it’s impossible to really understand somebody, what they want, what they believe, and not love them the way they love themselves. And then, in that very moment when I love them-….. I destroy them. I make it impossible for them to ever hurt me again. I grind them and grind them until they don’t exist.

Why I Will Be An Aerospace Engineer

For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.
