"'Isn't Lombrobria a long way off?'
'A considerable distance,' Valdez admitted, 'But our time will not be wasted, since I will teach you logic, and also the folksongs of my country.'
'It isn't fair,' Marvin muttered.
'My friend,' Valdez told him, 'when you accept help, you must be prepared to take what one is capable of giving, not what you would like to receive. I have never denied my human limitations; but it is ungrateful of you to refer to them.'
Marvin had to be content with that, since he didn't think he could find his way back to the city unaided. So they marched on through the mountains, and they sang many folksongs, but it was too cold for logic."

So who were you quoting?

Robert Sheckley, he of the cordles, onions and carrots.
I like this thread idea, Tom. I doubt I'll add to it, but I do look forward to you (and others, hopefully) posting quotes here.

There's some mention of Sheckley around ILX, usually from Martin Skidmore or Elvis Telecom. Last year I started an RIP thread that went nowhere.

I recently read in an old magazine article that Sheckley was lined up to contribute to a new range of novels based on The Prisoner! Looks like he never got round to finishing it, though...
