The last thing to burn…

November 30th, 2009 • Posted in News |

Taken from the British Fantasy Society website, here’s a wonderful, thought provoking, uplifting quote from the late Robert Holdstock:

“Everything we know now is destined to die except for the forest and the earth. Earth is the eternal survivor, and homo sapiens is not part of its mindless and inexorable plan. There are many forests to come. There will be flashes of intelligence. The last thing to burn will not be a man, but a leaf.  So eat pizza and drink beer. And cheer up. It’ll soon be over.”
