Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “If we have learned one thing from the history of invention and discovery, it is that, in the long run-and often in the short one-the most daring prophecies seem laughably conservative.”
Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “It is not easy to see how the more extreme forms of nationalism can long survive when men have seen the Earth in its true perspective as a single small globe against the stars.”
Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “Please leave me alone; let me go on to the stars.”
Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “Death focuses the mind on the things that really matter: why are we here, and what should we do?”
Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “Behind every man now alive stand thirty ghosts, for that is the ratio by which the dead outnumber the living. Since the dawn of time, roughly a hundred billion human beings have walked the planet Earth. Now this is an interesting number, for by a curious coincidence there are approximately a hundred billion stars in our local universe, the Milky Way. So for every man who has ever lived, in this Universe there shines a star.”

Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “Magic is just science we haven’t figured out yet.”
Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “SETI is probably the most important quest of our time, and it amazes me that governments and corporations are not supporting it sufficiently.”
Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “The image of Jupiter, with its ribbons of white cloud, its mottled bands of salmon pink, and the Great Red Spot staring out like a baleful eye, hung steady on the flight-deck projection screen.”
Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “Since women are better at producing babies, presumably Nature has given men some talent to compensate. But for the moment I can’t think of it.”
Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “Turing had pointed out that, if one could carry out a prolonged conversation with a machine – whether by typewriter or microphones was immaterial – without being able to distinguish between its replies and those that a man might give, then the machine was thinking, by any sensible definition of the word. Hal could pass the Turing test with ease. The.”
Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “But what finally ended this cycle was Verdi’s Requiem Mass, which he had never heard performed on Earth. The “Dies Irae,” roaring with ominous appropriateness through the empty ship, left him completely shattered;.”
Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “There is a special sadness in achievement, in the knowledge that a long-desired goal has been attained at last, and that life must now be shaped toward new ends.”
Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “I would defend the liberty of consenting adult creationists to practice whatever intellectual perversions they like in the privacy of their own homes; but it is also necessary to protect the young and innocent.”
Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “During the first half of the twentieth century, a few of your scientists began to investigate these matters. They did not know it, but they were tampering with the lock of Pandora’s box. The forces they might have unleashed transcended any perils that the atom could have brought. For the physicists could only have ruined the Earth: the paraphysicists could have spread havoc to the stars.”
Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “Jupiter now filled the entire sky; it was so huge that neither mind nor eye could grasp it any longer, and both had abandoned the attempt.

Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “The universe is full of energy, but much of it is at equilibrium.

Arthur C. Clarke Quote: “I am the biggest anachronism on Planet Earth.”
