„It is a magic book. Words mean things. When you put them together they speak.“

—  Samuel R. Delany American author, professor and literary critic 1942
Context: It is a magic book. Words mean things. When you put them together they speak. Yes, sometimes they flatten out and nothing they say is real, and that is one kind of magic.
