Text Quotes
Any teacher that can be replaced by a computer should be replaced by a computer  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) Suppose that we are wise enough to learn and know - and yet not wise enough to control our learning and knowledge, so that we use it to destroy ourselves? Even if that is so, knowledge remains better than ignorance  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you’re working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) Courtiers don’t take wagers against the king’s skill. There is the deadly danger of winning  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) There is nothing frightening about an eternal dreamless sleep. Surely it is better than eternal torment in Hell and eternal boredom in Heaven  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) Author’s Notes: This story starts with section 6. This is not a mistake. I have my own subtle reasoning. So, just read, and enjoy  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) If I am right, then (religious fundamentalists) will not go to Heaven, because there is no Heaven. If they are right, then they will not go to Heaven, because they are hypocrites  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) [A]ll knowledge is one. When a light brightens and illuminates a corner of a room, it adds to the general illumination of the entire room. Over and over again, scientific discoveries have provided answers to problems that had no apparent connection with the phenomena that gave rise to the discovery  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) Tell me why the stars do shine, Tell me why the ivy twines, Tell me what makes skies so blue, And I’ll tell you why I love you. Nuclear fusion makes stars to shine, Tropisms make the ivy twine, Raleigh scattering make skies so blue, Testicular hormones are why I love you  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) Saying something is ‘too bad’ is easy. You say you disapprove, which makes you a nice person, and then you can go about your business and not be interested anymore. It’s a lot worse than ‘too bad.’ It’s against everything decent and natural  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) Postulates are based on assumption and adhered to by faith. Nothing in the Universe can shake them  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) Emotionally I am an atheist. I don’t have the evidence to prove that God doesn’t exist, but I so strongly suspect he doesn’t that I don’t want to waste my time  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) I, on the other hand, am a finished product. I absorb electrical energy directly and utilize it with an almost one hundred percent efficiency. I am composed of strong metal, am continuously conscious, and can stand extremes of environment easily. These are facts which, with the self-evident proposition that no being can create another being superior to itself, smashes your silly hypothesis to nothing  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) Science is complex and chilling. The mathematical language of science is understood by very few. The vistas it presents are scary-an enormous universe ruled by chance and impersonal rules, empty and uncaring, ungraspable and vertiginous. How comfortable to turn instead to a small world, only a few thousand years old, and under God’s personal; and immediate care; a world in which you are His peculiar concern  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) During the century after Newton, it was still possible for a man of unusual attainments to master all fields of scientific knowledge. But by 1800, this had become entirely impracticable  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) The peace and joy of the Christmas season was marred by a proclamation of a general strike of all the military forces of the world. Panic reigns in the hearts of all the patriots of every persuasion. Meanwhile, fears of universal disaster sank to an all-time low over the world  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) Why this reluctance to make the change? We fear the process of reeducation  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) Self-education is a continuing source of pleasure to me, for the more I know, the fuller my life is and the better I appreciate my own existence  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) I even got a letter from a young woman in British Columbia that began as follows: ‘Today I am eighteen. I am sitting at the window, looking out at the rain, and thinking how much I love you.’  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) The important prediction is not the automobile, but the parking problem; not radio, but the soap opera; not the income tax, but the expense account; not the Bomb, but the nuclear stalemate  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) We all know we fall. Newton’s discovery was that the moon falls, too-and by the same rule that we do  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) The world is being Americanized and technologized to its limits, and that makes it dull for some people. Reaching the Moon restores the frontier and gives us the lands beyond  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) No vision of God and heaven ever experienced by the most exalted prophet can, in my opinion, match the vision of the universe as seen by Newton or Einstein  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) Self-education is, I firmly believe, the only kind of education there is. The only function of a school is to make self-education easier; failing that, it does nothing  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) You don’t need to predict the future. Just choose a future -- a good future, a useful future -- and make the kind of prediction that will alter human emotions and reactions in such a way that the future you predicted will be brought about. Better to make a good future than predict a bad one  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) To me it seems to be important to believe people to be good even if they tend to be bad, because your own joy and happiness in life is increased that way, and the pleasures of the belief outweigh the occasional disappointments. To be a cynic about people works just the other way around and makes you incapable about enjoying the good things  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) No one can possibly have lived through the Great Depression without being scarred by it. No amount of experience since the depression can convince someone who has lived through it that the world is safe economically  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) Science doesn’t purvey absolute truth. Science is a mechanism... for testing your thoughts against the universe  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) It’s humbling to think that all animals, including human beings, are parasites of the plant world.  (Isaac Asimov Quotes) Creationists make it sound as though a ‘theory’ is something you dreamt up after being drunk all night.  (Isaac Asimov Quotes)
