My favorite quotations: Stanislaw J. Lec

September 19th, 2005 by Michael Moncur in Site News

Every now and then someone emails me to tell me that I’ve misspelled Stanislaw Lem’s name as “Stanislaw Lec”, or vice versa. While we did make this mistake long ago, our quotations are now correct, but the confusing thing is that they are two different people:

  • Stanislaw Jerzy Lec (1909-1966) was a Polish poet and writer. He is best known for his book of aphorisms, Unkempt Thoughts.
  • Stanislaw Lem (b. 1921) is a polish writer of science fiction, best known for Solaris.

Now that we’ve got that straightened out, continuing the my favorite quotations series, here are some of my favorite quotes from Stanislaw J. Lec.
