H. G. Wells Quote: “We must be prepared to see an Association of Nations in conference growing into an organic system of world controls for world affairs and the keeping of the world’s peace, or we must be prepared for – a continuation of war.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “But to me the future is still black and blank – is a vast ignorance, lit at a few casual places by the memory of his story. And.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “A time will come when men will sit with history before them or with some old newspaper before them and ask incredulously,“Was there ever such a world?””
H. G. Wells Quote: “The army ages men sooner than the law and philosophy; it exposes them more freely to germs, which undermine and destroy, and it shelters them more completely from thought, which stimulates and preserves.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Sailors ought never to go to church. They ought to go to hell, where it is much more comfortable.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Men who think in lifetimes are of little use to statesmanship.”

H. G. Wells Quote: “You cannot imagine the strange colour-less delight of these intellectual desires.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “And the great difference between man and monkey is in the larynx.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “For instance, here is a portrait of a man at eight years old, another at fifteen, another at seventeen, another at twenty-three, and so on. All these are evidently sections, as it were, Three Dimensional representations of his Four-Dimensional being, which is a fixed and unalterable thing.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “What a wonderfully complex thing! this simple seeming unity – the self!”
H. G. Wells Quote: “I went to a box room at the top of the house and locked myself in, in order to be alone with my aching miseries.”

H. G. Wells Quote: “He had heard now of the moral decay that had followed the collapse of supernatural religion in the minds of ignoble man, the decline of public honour, the ascendency of wealth.

H. G. Wells Quote: “You are trying to do a more difficult thing than record folk songs; you are trying to record life.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “There is, however, a tendency to draw an unreal distinction between the former three dimensions and the latter, because it happens that our consciousness moves intermittently in one direction along the latter from the beginning to the end of our lives.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “She was exactly like a child. She wanted to be with me always. She tried to follow me everywhere, and on my next journey out and about it went to my heart to tire her down, and leave her at last, exhausted and calling after me rather plaintively. But the problems of the world had to be mastered. I had not, I said to myself, come into the future to carry on a miniature flirtation.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “There is nothing in machinery, there is nothing in embankments and railways and iron bridges and engineering devices to oblige them to be ugly. Ugliness is the measure of imperfection.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Security sets a premium on feebleness.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “It is not much good thinking of a thing unless you think it out.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “The establishment of the world community will surely exact a price – and who can tell what that price may be? – in toil, suffering and blood.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “I ceased even to breathe. It was ridiculous, of course, but you know that ghost-story feeling.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “What is this spirit in man that urges him forever to depart from happiness and security, to toil, to place himself in danger, even to risk a reasonable certainty of death? It dawned upon me up there in the moon as a thing I ought always to have known, that man is not made simply to go about being safe and comfortable and well fed and amused. Against his interest, against his happiness he is constantly being driven to do unreasonable things. Some force not himself impels him and go he must.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “I feel to think, he thinks to feel. It is I and my kind that have the wider range, because we can be impersonal as well as personal. We can escape ourselves.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “He said very little, but his eyes were eloquent; the clutch of his arms was eloquent. He was the playground of unspeakable emotions. These, you know, were real Magics.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Biologically the species is the accumulation of the experiments of all its successful individuals since the beginning.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Now the most comprehensive conception of this new world is of one politically, socially and economically united To this end a small but increasing body of people in the world set their faces and seek to direct their lives.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “In the middle of the night she woke up dreaming of huge white heads like turnips, that came trailing after her, at the end of interminable necks, and with vast black eyes. But being a sensible woman, she subdued her terrors and turned over and went to sleep again.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Children of the Law,’ I said, ‘he is not dead.’ M’ling turned his sharp eyes on me. ‘He has changed his shape – he has changed his body,’ I went on. ‘For a time you will not see him. He is... there’ – I pointed upward – ’where he can watch you. You cannot see him. But he can see you. Fear the Law.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “It doesn’t follow that a nasty habit of mind is any less nasty because it’s ancestral. It doesn’t follow you can’t cure it. Why scratch fleas for ever? Gambling, speculation, is a social disease. It’s as natural and desirable as – syphilis...”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Biologists can be just as sensitive to heresy as theologians.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Another of those fools,” said Dr. Kemp. “Like that ass who ran into me this morning round a corner, with the ‘’Visible Man a-coming, sir!’ I can’t imagine what possess people. One might think we were in the thirteenth century.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Then very haltingly at first, but afterwards more easily, he began to tell of the thing that was hidden in his life, the haunting memory of a beauty and a happiness that filled his heart with insatiable longings, that made all the interests and spectacle of worldly life seem dull and tedious and vain to him.”

H. G. Wells Quote: “It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men’s lives should not pay with their own.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “I felt all the wretcheder for the lack of a breakfast. Hunger and a lack of blood-corpuscles take all the manhood from a man.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “He was certainly an intensely egotistical and unfeeling man, but the sight of his victim, his first victim, bloody and pitiful at his feet, may have released some long pent fountain of remorse which for a time may have flooded whatever scheme of action he had contrived.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Nature never appeals to intelligence until habit and instinct are useless. There is no intelligence where there is no change and no need of change. Only those animals partake of intelligence that have to meet a huge variety of needs and dangers.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “And with that the Time Traveller began his story as I have set it forth. He sat back in his chair at first, and spoke like a weary man. Afterwards he got more animated.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “That won’t do,” said the policeman; “that’s murder.” “I know what country I’m in,” said the man with the beard. “I’m going to let off at his legs. Draw the bolts.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “I had seen the Magic Shop from afar several times; I had passed it once or twice, a shop window of alluring little objects, magic balls, magic hens, wonderful cones, ventriloquist dolls, the material of the basket trick, packs of cards that looked all right, and all that sort of thing, but never had I thought of going in until one day, almost without warning, Gip hauled me by my finger right up to the window, and so conducted himself that there was nothing for it but to take him in.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “That these man-like creatures were in truth only bestial monsters, mere grotesque travesties of men, filled me with a vague uncertainty of their possibilities which was far worse than any definite fear.”

H. G. Wells Quote: “The fever of war that would presently clog vein and artery, deaden nerve, and destroy brain, had yet to develop.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “A certain elementary training in statistical method is becoming as necessary for everyone living in this world of today as reading and writing.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “This is a mood, however, that comes to me now, I thank God, more rarely. I have withdrawn myself from the confusion of cities and multitudes, and spend my days surrounded by wise books, – bright windows in this life of ours, lit by the shining souls of men.”
