Variety IS the spice of LIFE!
Getting kinda ho-hum if you ask me.....
But this was not the way of it. So without any more gabbing from me, here's a nice mix of NON-Superhero books [some re-posts, some new] to illustrate my point, along with some nice quotes from a bunch of people FAR brainier than I....
Witching Hour 5
Sameness is the mother of disgust, variety the cure.
(1304 - 1374)
Land Of The Giants 1
Diversity is not an abnormality but the very reality of our planet. The human world manifests the same reality and will not seek our permission to celebrate itself in the magnificence of its endless varieties. Civility is a sensible attribute in this kind of world we have; narrowness of heart and mind is not.
(1930 - )
Dr. Spektor 2
Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live; it is asking others to live as one wishes to live. And unselfishness is letting other people's lives alone, not interfering with them. Selfishness always aims at uniformity of type. Unselfishness recognizes infinite variety of type as a delightful thing, accepts it, acquiesces in it, enjoys it.
(1854 - 1900)
Al Williamson Sampler
Fact of the matter is, there is no hip world, there is no straight world. There's a world, you see, which has people in it who believe in a variety of different things.
(1940 - 1993)
Voyage to the Deep 2
Not on one strand are all life's jewels strung.
(1834 – 1896)
Vengeance Squad 2
One country . . . one ideology, one system is not sufficient. It is helpful to have a variety of different approaches . . .
(The current Dalai Lama, 14th)
"The Mummy" from MONSTER WORLD 1
Human beings like variety, and they also like partnership... these are scientific values we can point to.
(1958 - )
Unknown Worlds 36
Variety is more than a means of avoiding boredom, since art is more than an entertainment of the senses.
(1904 - 2007)
Space Adventures 57
You just have to keep trying to do good work, and hope that it leads to more good work. I want to look back on my career and be proud of the work, and be proud that I tried everything. Yes, I want to look back and know that I was terrible at a variety of things.
(1962 - )
