Easy to Forget Why Earth is Worth Saving

from Ender's Game (1985) by Orson Scott CardRating: 3.7     (16 ratings)

We train our commanders the way we do because that's what it takes -- they have to think in certain ways, they can't be distracted by a lot of things, so we isolate them. You. Keep you separate. And it works. But it's so easy, when you never meet people, when you never know the Earth itself, when you live with metal walls keeping out the cold of space, it's easy to forget why Earth is worth saving. Why the world of people might be worth the price you pay.

- Colonel Hyrum Graff
