The War of the Worlds (Opening lines) - H.G.Wells

This quote was added by foryszewska
No one would have believed, in the last years of the nineteenth century, that human affairs were being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their affairs they were scrutinized and studied, perhaps as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinize the transcient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water.
