Robert Sheckley Quotes

30 Robert Sheckley quotes:

"Ethical and questions of philosophy interest me a great deal."
"I do think that short story writing is often a matter of luck."
"I knew I was doing something right because it was selling so I didn't want to interfere with it."
"I was never able to write seriously about heroes because I was very aware that I was not one and that in my background there was not this heroic thing."
"I'm not too fond of the hard work and the constant battle with self-doubt that goes on when I write, but I figure that's part of the territory."

"A novel is often a longer process in handling self-doubt."
"But science perhaps is very difficult without faith. Also there is no simple way of saying now we have science, we don't need faith anymore."

"I don't finish every story, but I probably write and send out three out of five of them."
"I don't much like to look back with the idea that I was doing it wrong then or I'm doing it wrong now."
"I have never been a critic of science fiction as a whole."
"I like to think that I have no single view nor any single situation that I think things arrive from. I try to give examples of what I think are interesting questions for me."
