I thank you for bringing it into my life.
Any day you learn something new is a good one.

Too true, sir, too true.

The book it comes from is also worth your time.

The book it came from is a classic science fiction story, but it also definitely shows its age especially with regards to women and homosexuals. Fair warning.

Some of the philosophy in it is also questionable. I eventually bought it for my nephew but I waited until he was an adult so he would have enough education to identify the problems with it. Good story, though, and definitely worth reading.
