Robert A Heinlein Love Quotes and Sayings

1. Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.

2. May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.

3. Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often confuses one for the other, or assumes the greater the love, the greater the jealousy. In fact they are almost incompatible; both at once produce unbearable turmoil.

4. The more you love, the more you can love — and the more intensely you love. Nor is there any limit on how many you can love. If a person had time enough, he could love all of that majority who are decent and just.


Excerpt from Wikipedia: Robert Anson Heinlein (July 7, 1907 – May 8, 1988) was an American science fiction writer. Often called “the dean of science fiction writers“, he was one of the most popular, influential, and controversial authors of the genre. He set a high standard for science and engineering plausibility and helped to raise the genre’s standards of literary quality. He was one of the first writers to break into mainstream, general magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post, in the late 1940s, with unvarnished science fiction. He was among the first authors of bestselling, novel-length science fiction in the modern, mass-market era. For many years, Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, and Arthur C. Clarke were known as the “Big Three” of science fiction.

Sayings by Robert A Heinlein

1. A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity.

2. Don’t ever become a pessimist… a pessimist is correct oftener than an optimist, but an optimist has more fun, and neither can stop the march of events.

3. Don’t handicap your children by making their lives easy.

4. Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done.

5. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.

6. I never learned from a man who agreed with me.

7. No statement should be believed because it is made by an authority.

8. One of the sanest, surest, and most generous joys of life comes from being happy over the good fortune of others.

9. The supreme irony of life is that hardly anyone gets out of it alive.

10. Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

11. A generation which ignores history has no past — and no future.

12. Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done, and why. Then do it.

13. Do not confuse “duty” with what other people expect of you; they are utterly different.

14. Sin lies only in hurting others unnecessarily. All other “sins” are invented nonsense.
