Science-fiction Quotes

Quotations
Quote of the Day

Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today - but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.
View quotes by Isaac Asimov

I was a science fiction junkie for a long time.
View quotes by William Hurt

Everything is becoming science fiction. From the margins of an almost invisible literature has sprung the intact reality of the 20th century.
View quotes by J G Ballard

Science fiction writers foresee the inevitable, and although problems and catastrophes may be inevitable, solutions are not.
View quotes by Isaac Asimov

Given that external reality is a fiction, the writer's role is almost superfluous. He does not need to invent the fiction because it is already there.
View quotes by J G Ballard

It does sound like a science fiction story and I may sound like one of these guys who walks up and down with a sandwich board saying the end of the world is nigh, but the end is nigh...
View quotes by Lembit Opik

The reason that fiction is more interesting than any other form of literature, to those who really like to study people, is that in fiction the author can really tell the truth without humiliating himself.
View quotes by Jim Rohn

The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction has to make sense.
View quotes by Tom Clancy

There does not exist a category of science to which one can give the name applied science. There are sciences and the applications of science, bound together as the fruit of the tree which bears it.
View quotes by Louis Pasteur

As strange as this may sound, I very seldom read fiction. Because my novels require so much research, almost everything I read is non-fiction-histories, biographies, translations of ancient texts.
View quotes by Dan Brown

What you have to do is enter the fiction of America, enter America as fiction. It is, indeed, on this fictive basis that it dominates the world.
View quotes by Jean Baudrillard

Science is one thing, wisdom is another. Science is an edged tool, with which men play like children, and cut their own fingers.
View quotes by Sir Arthur Eddington

He that desire to acquire any art or science seeks first those means by which that art or science is obtained.
View quotes by Robert Barclay

There are many hypotheses in science which are wrong. That's perfectly all right; they're the aperture to finding out what's right. Science is a self-correcting process. To be accepted, new ideas must survive the most rigorous standards of evidence and scrutiny.
View quotes by Carl Sagan

Science has nothing to be ashamed of even in the ruins of Nagasaki. The shame is theirs who appeal to other values than the human imaginative values which science has evolved.

View quotes by Jacob Bronowski

Science knows only one commandment - contribute to science.

View quotes by Bertolt Brecht

Man is unique not because he does science, and his is unique not because he does art, but because science and art equally are expressions of his marvelous plasticity of mind.
View quotes by Jacob Bronowski

We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.
View quotes by Carl Sagan

The popularity of the paranormal, oddly enough, might even be grounds for encouragement. I think that the appetite for mystery, the enthusiasm for that which we do not understand, is healthy and to be fostered. It is the same appetite which drives the best of true science, and it is an appetite which true science is best qualified to satisfy
View quotes by Richard Dawkins

Science can purify religion from error and superstition. Religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes.

View quotes by Pope John Paul II
