Thomas Hobbes

There are some that are not pleased with fiction, unless it be bold; not only to exceed the work, but also the possibility of nature; they would have impenetrable armors, enchanted castles, invulnerable bodies, iron men, flying horses, and a thousand other such things, which are easily feigned by them that dare.

Thomas Hobbes, “Answer to Davenant’s Preface to Gondibert

  1. I am definitely one of Hobbes’ “some”.

    Actually, I wouldn’t say I’m displeased w/ non-sf & f. I just prefer the “bold” stuff.
