Quotes | Favorites
The following are some of Perez’ favorite quotes:

“I deny such an accusation, madam. Whatever may be my personal opinions I am not trying to impose them on your planet. I have simply taken up the task of clarifying certain truths and making your people aware of certain cold and hard mathematical equations, which will add up in the end to disaster and which cannot be changed by beliefs, prayers nor by soap operas broadcast over your video-nets.”
— George Martin (1986), Tuf Voyaging
