Dystopia
 
Chase Stone
"You cannot buy the revolution. You cannot make the revolution. You can only be the revolution. It is in your spirit, or it is nowhere."
- Ursula K. Le Guin, The Dispossessed
 
 
Maciej Frolow
"Dystopian novels help people process their fears about what the future might look like; further, they usually show that there is always hope, even in the bleakest future."
- Lauren Oliver
 
 
David Palumbo
"'Dystopian,' by definition, promises a darker story."
- Lauren DeStefano
 
 
Dongyun Lee
"I think dystopian futures are also a reflection of current fears."
- Lauren Oliver
 
 
Michal Lisowski
"If love dies, that's when we've all truly died."
- Keary Taylor, Eden
 
 
Goni Montes
"In the year 2025, the best men don't run for president, they run for their lives..."
- Stephen King, The Running Man
 
 
Piotr Jablonski
"Would we be so enamored with dystopian fiction if we lived in a culture where violent death was a major concern? It wouldn't be escapism."
- Maggie Stiefvater
 
 
David Johnson
"Live every day as if you've come back in time from a dystopian future to try and prevent everything from breaking."
- Charlie Jane Anders
 
 
Sylvain Sarrailh
"Only the sweetest of the sweet would bring brownies to the apocalypse."
- Shelly Crane, Collide
 
 
Gregory Manchess
"This is the legacy of a compassionate bunch. Our fate now rests on the whims of men."
- Leot Felton, The After
 
 
Patrick Arrasmith
"The future is already here. It’s just unevenly distributed."
- William Gibson, NNeuromancer
 
 
Niklas Asker
"Taking the kids from our districts, forcing them to kill one another while we watch – this is the Capitol’s way of reminding us how totally we are at their mercy."
- Suzanne Collins
 
 
Eric Drooker
"The life where nothing was ever unexpected. Or inconvenient. Or unusual. The life without colour, pain or past."
- Lois Lowry, The Giver
 
 
Oscar Ramos
"The world is a goddamned evil place, the strong prey on the weak, the rich on the poor; I’ve given up hope that there is a God that will save us all. How am I supposed to believe that there’s a heaven and a hell when all I see now is hell."
- Aaron B. Powell, Doomsday Diaries III: Luke the Protector
 
 
Rudy Gutierrez
"Because if I am the last one, then I am humanity.
And if this is humanity's last war, then I am the battlefield."
- Rick Yancey
 
 
Edward Kinsella III
"For one last time, I said my goodbyes to the place I’d known as home for the last decade, and for the first time, I welcomed the unknown."
- Nicole Sobon, Submerged
 
 
Michal Dziekan
"Every dystopia is masked by a utopia."
- Mackenzie Draman, Pick 7
 
 
Douglas Smith
"Industrial society seems likely to be entering a period of severe stress, due in part to problems of human behavior and in part to economic and environmental problems."
- Cyril Connolly
 
 
Jason Seiler
"The children of the nuclear age, I think, were weakened in their capacity to love. Hard to love, when you're bracing yourself for impact. Hard to love, when the loved one, and the lover, might at any instant become blood and flames, along with everybody else."
- Martin Amis, Experience: A Memoir
 
 
Mark Summers
"He saw the rules of life clearly for the first time and they were simple: it was a game where Death was the only winner."
- Sharon Sant, Runners
 
 
Chris Gall
"At the very moment when man is on the verge of realizing his hope, he begins to lose it."
- Erich Fromm, 1984
 
 
Karla Ortiz
"That's how we stay young these days: murder and suicide."
- Eugène Ionesco, Man With Bags
 
 
Ricardo Martinez
"Nothing exists except through human consciousness"
- George Orwell, 1984
 
 
Mark T Smith
"A fictional Dystopia is better than a fake Utopia.”
- Robert Friedrich
 
 
Bill Sanderson
"The paths people choose in life can lead to the creation or destruction of people, places, things, and relationships. The future is uncertain, but what is certain is there will be change."
- Stephen Black, The Zoo: An Allegorical Adventure
 
 
Guy Stauber
"Because power corrupts, society's demands for moral authority and character increase as the importance of the position increases."
