Heinlein Quote of the Month (February 2006)

All I will add to the discussion of the State Of The Union:

Oh, 'tanstaafl.' Means 'There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.'

- Mannie in The Moon is a Harsh Mistress.

Eric wrote on this topic a while back in November, being a big fan of Heinlein, it didn't surprise me that he did such a good job with it.

I missed that before; thanks for pointing it out!

Heinlein has so many wonderful pithy ways of saying what I think about government, life, religion, etc.

While I liked him when I was a teenager, I don't think I really appreciated him. Now, with kids, a job, responsibilities, and the opportunity to have reflected on the meaning of it all, I can finally "grok" him.
