Chris Crutcher Quote: “Like I said before, Rudy says, it’s all about differences. Something about humans really doesn’t like them, when they are the very thing we should embrace.

If you’re scared or mad, that’s about you, not about the person who scares or angers you.”

Chris Crutcher Quote: “If humans are ever to understand one another, they will have to come to terms with the concept, and the reality, of relativity. In essence, that’s what the Earthgame is about. They will have to see how things look compared to other things. Once you understand that nothing exists without its opposite, you understand nothing is good and nothing is evil, that opposites actually hold each other up.”
Chris Crutcher Quote: “I can’t think of a subject that is taboo for me, unless it’s one I simply don’t know anything about.”
Chris Crutcher Quote: “The World is full of fools and crackpots – people who were never given tools to fill their lives up with, and consequently have made their lives so meaningless the only way they can feel good about themselves is to look around and see who they’re better than. When they can’t find someone, they create someone. Their ideas are meaningless- right up until we start to fight against them. We’re the ones who give power to the bigots. We make their ideas real by opposing them.”
Chris Crutcher Quote: “Censors can make a case for zero tolerance in language. They can make the argument that since we don’t allow our children to use that language in schools, we also shouldn’t give them stories in which it is used.”
Chris Crutcher Quote: “Certainly working with teens keeps me up to date with language and with certain kinds of thinking. I often feel like I have to go back to that 17-year-old Chris Crutcher, and that forms the core voice. I can draw on teens from 1964 to 2001 to find a part of the voice I need.”
Chris Crutcher Quote: “My dad leaves bruises on the inside.”
