Isaac Asimov Quote: “Life would be impossible on such a planet. It wouldn’t get enough heat and light, and if it rotated there would be total darkness half of every day. There wouldn’t be any native inhabitants. You couldn’t expect life – which is fundamentally dependent on light – to develop under such extreme conditions of light deprivation. Half of every axial rotation spent in Darkness! No, nothing could exist under conditions like that.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Let us assume you’ve made your point.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Why, he wondered, did so many people spend their lives not trying to find answers to questions – not even thinking of questions to begin with? Was there anything more exciting in life than seeking answers?”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “You seek to trap me into an inconsistency. If you were an amoeba who could consider individuality only in connection with single cells and if you were to ask a sperm whale, made up of thirty quadrillion cells, whether it was one or many, how could the sperm whale answer in a way that would be comprehensible to the amoeba?”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Even as a youngster, though, I could not bring myself to believe that if knowledge presented danger, the solution was ignorance. To me, it always seemed that the solution had to be wisdom. You did not refuse to look at danger, rather you learned how to handle it safely.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “The reaction of one man could be forecast by no known mathematics; the reaction of a billion is something else again. Hari.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “He didn’t believe that, surely.” “Of course not! But he had to pretend he did, as otherwise he would have had no choice but to be insulted. And since there would be nothing he could do about that, being insulted would only lead to humiliation. And since he didn’t want that, the simplest path to follow was to believe what I said.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Ambitious men will not wait and unscrupulous men will not hang back. By their every action they will hasten the decay of the worlds.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Even as though dearest with th en humble and defenseless, thus shalt though be dealt with.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “It is enough for a Psychohistorian, as such, to know his Biostatistics and his Neurochemical Electromathematics. Some know nothing else and are fit only to be statistical technicians. But a Speaker must be able to discuss the Plan without mathematics.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “And after that, there was only the ship, large and glistening; the cool production of 12,000 years of Imperial progress; and himself, with his doctorate in mathematics freshly obtained and an invitation from the great Hari Seldon to come to Trantor and join the vast and somewhat mysterious Seldon Project. What.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “I grow grandiose, which is a good sign I should become prosaic.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “You can’t maintain discipline that way.” Mallow said icily, “I can. There’s no merit in discipline under ideal circumstances. I’ll have it in the face of death, or it’s useless.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Supongo que no hay manera de hacer regresar la nube con forma de hongo a esa bonita y reluciente esfera de uranio.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Sizzling Saturn, we’ve got a lunatic robot on our hands.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “If, from a distance of seven thousand parsecs, the fall of Kalgan to the armies of the Mule had produced reverberations that had excited the curiosity of an old Trader, the apprehension of a dogged captain, and the annoyance of a meticulous mayor – to those on Kalgan itself, it produced nothing and excited no one. It is the invariable lesson to humanity that distance in time, and in space as well, lends focus. It is not recorded, incidentally, that the lesson has ever been permanently learned.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “My feeling is that as far as creativity is concerned, isolation is required.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Any decent politician is masochistic enough to dream now and then of going down in flames while the angels sing.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “You’re surrounded by people in the waking period, and you feel their eyes and their hopes on you. You can’t stand up under it. In the sleep period, you’re free.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “We can’t give up just because the Universe does.”
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? We think it is important because we have it. If the Tyrannosaurus could have picked out the one quality that he thought would ensure species domination, it would be size and strength. And he would make a better case for it. He lasted longer than we’re likely to.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Baley needed a friend and he was in no mood to cavil at the fact that a gear replaced a blood vessel in this particular one.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “You’ll have such proof as exists. You are the only one responsible for your own wants.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “You might as well ask why the same man sprints safely across an obstacle course in the day, and falls over the furniture in his room at night.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Victories over ingrained patterns of thought are not won in a day or a year.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Your phraseology is obscure, but I think I understand.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Since I do not believe in so many things, it is not difficult for me to disbelieve in the Fall as well, so that I am entirely convinced I will be telling the truth to the people.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Every human being lived behind an impenetrable wall of choking mist within which no other but he existed.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “And his idea of solid comfort was to be left in utter solitude for two or three hours.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “His idiot face gets redder and his eyes bulge and his ears block. I’d say his mind stops functioning, but I lack the proof of any other state from which it might stop.” Bronowski.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “People are entirely too disbelieving of coincidence. They are far too ready to dismiss it and to build arcane structures of extremely rickety substance in order to avoid it. I, on the other hand, see coincidence everywhere as an inevitable consequence of the laws of probability, according to which having no unusual coincidence is far more unusual than any coincidence could possibly be.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Dors muttered to him, “Stop studying humanity. Be aware of your surroundings.” “I’ll try.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Of course, the reader might argue that I was as stubborn in my viewpoint as they were in theirs. Yes, indeed, but I was right and they were wrong and that made the difference.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Don’t you think my interest can be real, even granted that it is professional, too?” “No, I don’t.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Nowadays, of course, we are taught that the flat-Earth theory is wrong; that it is all wrong, absolutely. But it isn’t. The curvature of the Earth is nearly 0 per mile, so that although the flat-Earth theory is wrong, it happens to be nearly right. That’s why the theory lasted so long.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “In fact, it was part of the Tyrannian military tradition that a little discomfort on the part of the soldier was good for discipline.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “A knotty puzzle may hold a scientist up for a century, when it may be that a colleague has the solution already and is not even aware of the puzzle that it might solve.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “Historians pick and choose and every one of them picks and chooses the same thing.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “An unpleasant nest of nasty, materialistic and aggressive people, careless of the rights of others, imperfectly democratic at home though quick to see the minor slaveries of others, and greedy without end.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “You must have minimalism because every change, any change, has myriad side effects that can’t always be allowed for. If the change is too great and the side effects too many, then it becomes certain that the outcome will be far removed from anything you’ve planned and that it would be entirely unpredictable.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “He never created a finish product. Finished products are for decadent minds. His was an evolving mechanism and the Second Foundation was the instrument of that evolution.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “The elderly man, flushed with pleasure, was recounting in voluble fashion his experiences and impressions. His wife joined in periodically, with meticulous corrections involving completely unimportant points; these being given and taken in the best of humor.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “But you are telling me, Susan, that the ‘Society for Humanity’ is right; and that Mankind has lost its own say in its future.′ ‘It never had any, really. It was always at the mercy of economic and sociological forces it did not understand – at the whims of climate, and the fortunes of war.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “It seems to me that only someone who wishes for freedom can be free. I wish for freedom.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “A mathematician, however, who could back his prophecy with mathematical formulas and terminology, might be understood by no one and yet believed by everyone.”

Isaac Asimov Quote: “Aimless extension of knowledge, however, which is what I think you really mean by the term curiosity, is merely inefficiency. I am designed to avoid inefficiency.” -R. Daneel Olivaw.”
Isaac Asimov Quote: “A happy wall is a long-lived wall, a practical wall, a useful wall.”
