If God had been a liberal, we wouldn't have had the Ten Commandments — we'd have the Ten Suggestions.
— Malcolm Bradbury, born on this date in 1932
Having read four Bradbury novels, Stepping Westward, Rates of Exchange, Eating People is Wrong, and The History Man, I would say that at least the first three suggest that he is much more comfortable with suggestions than with commandments.
Interesting. When I saw the quote I wasn't sure if he thought that a good idea or not.
