Famous quotes by Roger Zelazny:Sort:PopularA - Z

Life is full of doors that don't open when you knock, equally spaced amid those that open when you don't want them to.
Insofar as I may be heard by anything, which may or may not care what I say, I ask, if it matters, that you be forgiven for anything you may have done or failed to do which requires forgiveness. Conversely, if not forgiveness but something else may be required to insure any possible benefit for which you may be eligible after the destruction of your body, I ask that this, whatever it may be, be granted or withheld, as the case may be, in such a manner as to insure your receiving said benefit. I ask this in my capacity as your elected intermediary between yourself and that which may not be yourself, but which may have an interest in the matter of your receiving as much as it is possible for you to receive of this thing, and which may in some way be influenced by this ceremony. Amen.
When your bow is broken and your last arrow spent, then shoot, shoot with your whole heart.
Any man would be forsworn to gain a kingdom.
Don't wake me for the end of the world unless it has very good special effects.
Goodbye, and hello, as always.
I don't know that I ever wanted greatness, on its own. It seems rather like wanting to be an engineer, rather than wanting to design something--or wanting to be a writer, rather than wanting to write. It should be a by-product, not a thing in itself. Otherwise, it's just an ego trip.
I stalk my prison like my own ghost...
It is a pain in the ass waiting around for someone to try to kill you.
Some natural skepticism as to the purity of all human motives came and sat upon my chest...
