Same Familiar Faces

from Rendezvous with Rama (1973) by Arthur C. ClarkeRating: 3.7     (40 ratings)

What did depress him sometimes was the need for dealing, year after year, with the same familiar faces. The marvels of medicine were all very well -- and certainly he had no desire to put back the clock -- but there were men around this conference table with whom he had worked for more than half a century. He knew exactly what they would say and how they would vote on any given subject. He wished that, someday, one of them would do something totally unexpected -- even something quite crazy.
And probably they felt exactly the same way about him.

- Dr. Bose
