I’ve been away from home just two weeks today, but in all honesty, it feels like an eternity. Up until today, I’ve been on vacation with my wife in Spain and France; right now I am on a train to Zurich for work (traveling at 315kph!). I’ll return home to California via London later this week after enjoying my niece’s wedding with family.
I stumbled across a quote from this book this morning, and it reminded me how much I enjoyed reading it. I was also reminded of just how many great quotes and passages there are in that book; so I thought I’d share a few with you.
In case you’ve never heard of Stranger in a Strange Land, it’s a novel by Robert A. Heinlein about Valentine Michael Smith, a newborn that survived the first mission to Mars. Raised by Martians, Valentine returns to Earth an innocent, rich heir, and “owner” of Mars.
Oh, and don’t write the book off merely as science-fiction or otherwise something you wouldn’t normally read. It really is an interesting story and extremely well written. Seriously, give it a try!
