A great bit of SF from 1909, full of modern inventions :)

As a minimum, we must demand from SF that it be wiser than the world it speaks to.

One of my favorites, actually, although it's been years since I reread it. :)
"Chancho...sometimes when you are a man...you wear stretchy pants...in your room...alone."

"Politics is never simple, like the sand chigger of Arrakis, one is rarely truly free of its bite."

Arrakeen is an unawakened ghola.

Never read it before. Does anyone know if Forrester has more SF-like stuff?
Something is about to happen, Hal. Something wonderful!
