That reality is being changed out from under us, replaced, renewed, all the time -- only we don't know it? Only the dreamer knows it, and those who know his dream.

They do not work it by working. They do not reason it by using reason. To let understanding stop at what cannot be understood is a high attainment. Those who cannot do it will be destroyed on the lathe of heaven. Dr. Haber: You know what they say, neurotics build castles in the sky, psychotics live in them. Heather: Psychiatrists collect the rent. Dr. Haber: Progress, George. Progress. We have made more progress in six weeks than humanity has made in the past six thousand years. George Orr: Well, do you think with all of this progress you could help me to find Heather? Dr. Haber: Who? George Orr: [Irritated] Heather Lelache, the lawyer from HEW. Dr. Haber: Oh, yes.

I just killed six billion people... George Orr: Uh, I'll be back in an hour, E'nememen Asfah. Alien Robot: Take afternoon. There is time. George Orr: Thanks. Alien Robot: To go is to return.
