Isaac Asimov Quote: “Tens of millions of Americans who neither know or understand the actual arguments for, or even against, evolution, march in the Army of the Night with their Bibles held high.”

Isaac Asimov Quote: “What kind of a ridiculous animal are we to be lords of the world after the dinosaurs had failed? Sure, we’re intelligent, but what’s intelligence?

And he would make a better case for it. He lasted longer than we’re likely to.”

Isaac Asimov Quote: “Arthur Clarke says that I am first in science and second in science fiction in accordance with an agreement we have made. I say he is first in science fiction and second in science.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Schiller. A German dramatist of three centuries ago. In a play about Joan of Arc, he said, ‘Against stupidity, the gods themselves contend in vain.’ I’m no god and I’ll contend no longer.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “It is in meeting the great tests that mankind can most successfully rise to great heights. Out of danger and restless insecurity comes the force that pushes mankind to newer and loftier conquests.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “There is no one so insufferable as a person who gives no other excuse for a peculiar action than saying he had been directed to it in a dream.”

And each time, frustratingly enough, force never really settled the problem. Instead, it persisted through a series of conflicts, then vanished of itself – what’s the expression – ah, yes, ‘not with a bang, but a whimper,’ as the economic and social environment changed. And then, new problems, and a new series of wars.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”
