7/7/7 marks the
100th birthday of Grandmaster Robert Anson Heinlein
, born July 7th 1907. Long live Lazarus Long
While any attempt
at a tribute
would but naturally turn into a passionate link infested paean
to this visionary genius
, one of the Big 3, along with Asimov and Clarke, one must honour
his contribution with a pointer to the Heinlein Concordance
, a portal of his stories, characters, concepts and timelines.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
~ Robert A. Heinlein 1907 - 1988
