#1. Leo's smile widened into a toothy grin. "We shall see," he said, "come. You have persuaded me into giving you a trial."

This means I don't have a moment of peace, that nothing has come easily to me, not just the present and the future, but even the past, that thing that each man receives as his birth-right: even that I have to conquer, and perhaps that is the hardest task. #Quote by Franz Kafka

Future Islands quotes by John Maynard Keynes
#11. The master-economist must possess a rare combination of gifts ... He must be mathematician, historian, statesman, philosopher - in some degree. He must understand symbols and speak in words. He must contemplate the particular, in terms of the general, and touch abstract and concrete in the same flight of thought. He must study the present in the light of the past for the purposes of the future. No part of man's nature or his institutions must be entirely outside his regard. He must be purposeful and disinterested in a simultaneous mood, as aloof and incorruptible as an artist, yet sometimes as near to earth as a politician. #Quote by John Maynard Keynes
Future Islands quotes by Kandi Steiner
#12. Our past has a funny way of becoming part of who we are in the future, and I think that's the way it's meant to be. Without the scars, without the pain, we wouldn't be able to appreciate the times when everything is magical - the days when life is absolute bliss. #Quote by Kandi Steiner

Future Islands quotes by Charles Darwin
#14. Looking to future generations, there is no cause to fear that the social instincts will grow weaker ... the social instincts, - the prime principle of man's moral constitution - with the aid of active intellectual powers and the effects of habit, naturally lead to the golden rule, "As ye would that men should do to you; do ye to them likewise"; and this lies at the foundation of morality. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Future Islands quotes by Adrian Rogers
#15. Failure in the past does not nullify purpose in the future. #Quote by Adrian Rogers

Future Islands quotes by Gordon Klingenschmitt

Future Islands quotes by Thomas A. Edison
#20. Tom Paine has almost no influence on present-day thinking in the United States because he is unknown to the average citizen. Perhaps I might say right here that this is a national loss and a deplorable lack of understanding concerning the man who first proposed and first wrote those impressive words, 'the United States of America.'

But it is hardly strange.

Paine's teachings have been debarred from schools everywhere and his views of life misrepresented until his memory is hidden in shadows, or he is looked upon as of unsound mind.

We never had a sounder intelligence in this Republic. He was the equal of Washington in making American liberty possible. Where Washington performed Paine devised and wrote. The deeds of one in the Weld were matched by the deeds of the other with his pen.

Washington himself appreciated Paine at his true worth. Franklin knew him for a great patriot and clear thinker. He was a friend and confidant of Jefferson, and the two must often have debated the academic and practical phases of liberty.

I consider Paine our greatest political thinker. As we have not advanced, and perhaps never shall advance, beyond the Declaration and Constitution, so Paine has had no successors who extended his principles. Although the present generation knows little of Paine's writings, and although he has almost no influence upon contemporary thought, Americans of the future will justly appraise his work. I am certain of #Quote by Thomas A. Edison
Future Islands quotes by Danielle Hawkins
#21. Aunty Rose's scones were small windowless buildings - if you could manage to worry one down it sat and sulked at the bottom of your stomach for hours, impervious to the processes of digestion. I giggled, and she said haughtily, "My scones are very nice."
"We could bury you with a batch," I suggested as we went slowly back down the hall. "And if archaeologists opened your grave thousands of years in the future they'd find them there, just as good as on the day they were cooked."
"Ill mannered wench," Aunty Rose said. She sank onto the edge of her bed and reached up to touch my cheek as he had Matt's. "I'm glad the pair of you finally sorted yourselves out."
I smiled at her. "You sorted us out, didn't you ?"
"I swore I wouldn't interfere, but I couldn't stand it any longer."
"Thank-you," I said soberly.
"You're welcome. Honestly, Josephine, for an intelligent girl you can be appallingly dim at times. Couldn't you have fluttered your eyelashes at the poor boy ? #Quote by Danielle Hawkins
Future Islands quotes by Allan Bloom
#22. This nation's impulse is toward the future, and tradition seems more of a shackle to it than an inspiration. #Quote by Allan Bloom
Future Islands quotes by George S. Patton
#23. Often I have encountered in life that great disappointments have proved to be the road to future successes. #Quote by George S. Patton
Future Islands quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#24. Science fiction seldom attempts to predict the future. More often than not, it tries to prevent the future. #Quote by Arthur C. Clarke
Future Islands quotes by Pia Toscano
#25. You don't know for sure why things happen, but you know, it did! It was my time to go on the show and I'm excited to see what my future holds. #Quote by Pia Toscano
Future Islands quotes by Ian Watson
#26. Tokyo in the late 1960s seemed to be like one of the futures that science fiction presents. Here was the proto- super-technology of the future, electronically, robotically, blahblahblah, intercut with traditional Japanese cultural patterns, Shinto patterns. #Quote by Ian Watson
Future Islands quotes by Madison Thorne Grey
#27. Surrounding the two of them was the love they shared but also an overwhelming feeling of fear
fear of a future filled with the emptiness which would consume them if they remained apart. A fear of a future of being separated forever, and it gripped both of their hearts, demanding preventative action. #Quote by Madison Thorne Grey
Future Islands quotes by Jessa Crispin
#28. I don't tell clients what to do. I don't even really tell them what the future is. #Quote by Jessa Crispin
Future Islands quotes by Pat Barker
#29. Colin was beginning to be afraid( ... )of the future, of the possibility, suddenly glimpsed, that his life might end like this. Like most young people, he'd always assumed, without ever really thinking about it, that regret, waste, failure lay in wait for others, but not for him. Now( ... )he realized, for the first time, that he was not exempt, that this, unless he took steps to avoid it, could happen to him. #Quote by Pat Barker
Future Islands quotes by Mahmoud Dowlatabadi
#30. Who am I trying to fool? I'm well aware that at every stage of history there have been crimes against humanity, and they couldn't have happened without humans to commit them. The crimes that have been visited on my children have been committed, and still are being committed, by young people just like them, by people stirring up their delusions, giving them delusions of grandeur. So why do I imagine that people might improve? Everything going on around us seems to indicate that the values our forebears passed down to us no longer apply. Instead, we have sown the seeds of mistrust, scepticism and resignation, which will grow into a jungle of nihilism and cynicism, a jungle in which you will never find the courage to even mention the names of goodness, truth and common humanity, a corp that is now bearing fruit with remarkable speed. We're obliged to dig our own children's graves, but what's even more shocking is that these crimes are creating a future in which there is no place for truth and human decency. Nobody dare to speak truth anymore. Oh, my poor children ... we are burying you, but you should realize that we are also digging a grave for our future. Can you hear me? #Quote by Mahmoud Dowlatabadi
Future Islands quotes by Robert Greene
#31. Fear is the oldest and strongest emotion known to man, something deeply inscribed in our nervous system and subconscious. Over time, however, something strange began to happen. The actual terrors that we faced began to lessen in intensity as we gained increasing control over our environment. But instead of our fears lessening a well, they began to multiply in number. We started to worry about our status in society- whether people liked us, or how we fit into the group. We became anxious for our livelihoods, the future of our families and children, our personal health, and the aging process. Instead of a simple, intense fear of something powerful and real, we developed a kind of generalized anxiety. #Quote by Robert Greene
Future Islands quotes by Marcel Proust
#32. Thus he went on growing steadily colder, a tiny planet offering a prophetic image of the greater, when gradually heat will withdraw from the earth, then life itself. Then the resurrection will have come to an end, for, however far forward into future generations the works of men may shine, there must none the less be men. If certain species hold out longer against the invading cold, when there are no longer any men, and if we suppose Bergotte's fame to have lasted until then, suddenly it will be extinguished for all time. It will not be the last animals that will read him, for it is scarcely probable that, like the Apostles at Pentecost, they will be able to understand the speech of the various races of mankind without having learned it. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Future Islands quotes by John Corbett
#33. I'm not opposed to adoption. It's not in my immediate future because I'm on the move a lot and if I were going to be father I would like to be more grounded. #Quote by John Corbett
Future Islands quotes by Vladimir Putin
#34. The participants expressed anxiety about the problems the Defense Ministry had been meeting in realizing its plans for future development. #Quote by Vladimir Putin
Future Islands quotes by Dean Kamen
#35. The future is going to require really smart people. What we think are crises today probably will be no big deal, and we have no idea what will really be crises in the future. #Quote by Dean Kamen
Future Islands quotes by Anneli Rufus
#36. We can change our brains, but it takes time and diligence, because the human brain has a built-in "negativity bias" whereby it stores and learns from negative experiences far more readily and lastingly than it stores and learns from positive ones. This is a natural survival strategy by which the body records danger signs for future reference. It is far more useful for an evolving creature to remember Hungry lions bite than to remember Flowers are pretty. Thus we are neurologically wired to remember more vividly and lastingly a bad experience - say, a public scolding - than to remember a good experience - say, hitting a home run - that occurred on the same day, even if both experiences carried exactly the same emotional intensity for us at the time. #Quote by Anneli Rufus
Future Islands quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#37. Trillions of years into the future, when all stars are gone ... all parts of the cosmos will cool to the same temperature as the ever-cooling background. At that time, space travel will no longer provide refuge because even Hell will have frozen over. We may then declare that the universe has died-not with a bang, but with a whimper. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Future Islands quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#38. A sunset, almost formidable in its splendor, would be lingering in the fully exposed sky. Among its imperceptibly changing amassments, one could pick out brightly stained structural details of celestial organisms, or glowing slits in dark banks, or flat, ethereal beaches that looked like mirages of desert islands. I did not know then (as I know perfectly well now) what to do with such things - how to get rid of them, how to transform them into something that can be turned over to the reader in printed characters to have him cope with the blessed shiver - and this inability enhanced my oppression. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Future Islands quotes by Samantha Bond
#39. I lost a girlfriend when I was in my 30s. She was 46. It all sounds so trite, but I put a Post-it on my dressing-room wall. It said, 'The past is history. The future is a mystery. This moment is a gift, which is why it's called the present.' #Quote by Samantha Bond
Future Islands quotes by Theo Colborn
#40. The journey to a different future must begin by defining the problem differently than we have done until now. The task is not to find substitutes for chemicals that disrupt hormones, attack the ozone layer, or cause still undiscovered problems, though it may be necessary to use replacements as a temporary measure. The task that confronts us over the next half century is one of redesign. #Quote by Theo Colborn
Future Islands quotes by Shekhar Kapur
#41. I'm working on a film called 'Bonnie.' Bonnie means water. It's in English, and it's dealing with a future world in a megacity - which is what the U.N. says we're going to be - but in this megacity, a city that runs out of water. #Quote by Shekhar Kapur
Future Islands quotes by William J. Clinton
#42. [Alternative energy] will make us less dependent on foreign oil. It would make us more secure in our future. It would mean that our foreign policy could be a reflection of our values and our other interests, and not just that. #Quote by William J. Clinton
