You can disappear, even when it looks like you’re still standing right there. You can scream, and nobody hears a sound. You become the mutant who fell into the vat of acid, the Joker who can’t remove his mask, the bionic man who’s missing all his limbs and none of his heart.

A tax-supported, compulsory educational system is the complete model of the totalitarian state.” ~ Isabel Paterson

It is very natural and very human behaviour. But it is not superhuman.” ~ Margaret E. Knight

  53. “So much of the violence in the movies is b.s. violence: A guy in the middle of a large city with 14 people lying on the ground that he’s just killed with his superhuman powers, and there’s not a cop to be found.

  64. “Sir Hiram Maxim is a genuine and typical example of the man of science, romantic, excitable, full of real but somewhat obvious poetry, a little hazy in logic and philosophy, but full of hearty enthusiasm and an honorable simplicity. He is, as he expresses it, “an old and trained engineer,” and is like all of the old and trained engineers I have happened to come across, a man who indemnifies himself for the superhuman or inhuman concentration required for physical science by a vague and dangerous romanticism about everything else.” ~ Gilbert K. Chesterton
  65. “Maybe love was no match for ice…but Piper had used it to wake a metal dragon. Mortals did superhuman feats in the name of love all the time. Mothers lifted cars to save their children.

Her arm steamed under Khione’s grip. ‘Still underestimating me,’ Piper told the goddess. ‘You really need to work on that.” ~ Rick Riordan
