Altered Carbon – Richard Morgan

My favourite quotes from the book Altered Carbon by Richard Morgan:

Somebody wants to kill me, and that’s not a nice feeling.

People envy me, people hate me. That’s the price of success. That was news to me, people hated me on ten different planets, but I never considered myself a successful man.

I trust those bastards as I would a cellophane condom.

Human eye is a marvelous device. With a little effort it can overlook even the greatest injustice.

Don’t judge, so that you won’t be judged.

They call that a Kemmerich gradient, and yours is so steep that you would need a bolt and ropes to climb it.
