The Machine Stops, by E.M. Forster

A great bit of SF from 1909, full of modern inventions :)
And that, children, is how the little bunny rabbit got his fluffy white tail.

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 wear stretchy your room...alone."

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

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