Science Fiction Author Quote of the Day

Nothing can astound an American...In America, all is easy, all is simple; and as for mechanical difficulties, they are overcome before they arise. Between Barbicane's proposition and its realization no true Yankee would have allowed even the semblance of a difficulty to be possible. A thing with them is no sooner said than done.

Jules Verne, From the Earth to the Moon (1865)
