J.G. Ballard Quotes

Some quotes from the author:

Everything is becoming science fiction. From the margins of an almost invisible literature has sprung the intact reality of the 20th century.

Given that external reality is a fiction, the writer's role is almost superfluous. He does not need to invent the fiction because it is already there.

I would sum up my fear about the future in one word: boring. And that's my one fear: that everything has happened; nothing exciting or new or interesting is ever going to happen again... the future is just going to be a vast, conforming suburb of the soul.

In a completely sane world, madness is the only freedom!

Perhaps violence...is some kind of an evolutionary standby system, a last-resort device for throwing a wild joker into the game?
