Science Fiction quotes by Jean M. Auel

Science Fiction quotes by John Sladek
#11. I have a kind of standard explanation why, which goes like this: Science fiction is one way of making sense out of a senseless world. #Quote by John Sladek
Science Fiction quotes by Philip K. Dick
#12. Masochism is more widespread than we realize because it takes an attenuated form. The basic dynamism is as follows: a human being sees something bad which is coming as inevitable. There is no way he can halt the process; he is helpess. This sense of helplessness generates a need to gain some control over the impending pain -- any kind of control will do. This makes sense; the subjective feeling of helplessness is more painful than the impending misery. So the person seizes control over the situation in the only way open to him: he connives to bring on the impending misery; he hastens it. This activity on his part promotes the false impression that he enjoys pain. Not so. It is simply that he cannot any longer endure the helplessness or the supposed helplessness. But in the process of gaining control over the inevitable misery he becomes, automatically, anhedonic. Anhedonia sets in stealthily. Over the years it takes control of him. For example, he learns to defer gratification; this is a step in the dismal process of anhedonia. In learning to defer he gratification he experiences a sense of self-mastery; he has become stoic, disciplined; he does not give way to impulse. He has "control". Control over himself in terms of his impulses and control over the external situation. He is a controlled and controlling person. Pretty soon he has branched out and is controlling other people, as part of the situation. He becomes a manipulator. Of course, he is not conciousily aware of this #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Science Fiction quotes by April Adams
#13. The Hum-bird paused, a long needle sliding out of the hole in its beak. It bent quickly, poking the needle into Scarlett's face. Its head popped back up and then repeated the motion in three more spots on the Jordan's face before hopping to the other side and starting over.

It hopped back and forth a few more times, pausing now and then with its injector, plumping skin and filling the fine lines in Scarlett's face. After examining its works, the needle withdrew and another one protruded, glistening pink in the dimmed light. This time the Hum-bird hopped around, paralyzing any damaging nerve clusters that over time would be bound to cause wrinkles in the skin. #Quote by April Adams
Science Fiction quotes by Steve Holt
#14. What you believe determines the way you feel and act ... but it doesn't change the truth. #Quote by Steve Holt
Science Fiction quotes by Volker G. Fremuth
#15. A man's ability to give is dwarfed by his ability to take. Those who profit by fulfilling man's need to take by giving will be the most powerful on earth. #Quote by Volker G. Fremuth
Science Fiction quotes by Tony Rabig
#16. When it came to time travel, science and science fiction and fantasy had flip-flopped. Nobody was going to create a machine that traveled to the future or the past. Time machines might be accepted in science fiction as an enabling device to get the story moving, but they're like faster-than-light space ships-- neither one is going to happen any time soon, not with any technology we know how to implement.
The guys who had it figured were the fantasists, Dennis. The Finneys and the Mathesons and the Ellisons and the Serlings. No machines and no advanced physics, at least not most of the time. Just an overpowering desire. Just need and longing and pain and regret and the right talisman or the right surroundings. Put the right person in the right place, and perhaps with the right objects, and the potential for time travel is there. #Quote by Tony Rabig
Science Fiction quotes by G.S. Jennsen
#17. I'll ask you to look at the ships arrayed against you and consider what weaponry they might possess. Weaponry strong enough to crack your hulls? I know what weaponry you bring to bear, and I assure you it will not crack ours.

"Are you willing to risk the lives of thousands under your command to find out? Are you willing to risk your own life?"

The silence hung across space like a shroud.

"This is not over, Admiral Solovy."

"That is the first true thing you've said today. #Quote by G.S. Jennsen
Science Fiction quotes by Carolina Cody Aldaz
#18. Mortal has not been a habitable place for a long time. We have been trying to survive patching it but one day it will break completely. Twinmortal is the future for all of us. You will achieve that future for us by learning has much as you can. #Quote by Carolina Cody Aldaz
Science Fiction quotes by Kass Morgan
#19. Bellamy had come down from scanning the heavens only to find himself in the depths of hell. #Quote by Kass Morgan
Science Fiction quotes by Michelle Frost
#20. And who is to say the truth can't be a miracle? #Quote by Michelle Frost
Science Fiction quotes by Sabrina Zbasnik
#21. I've always wondered though," Orn mused aloud, "what does God need with a starship?"
"Are you going to make that stupid quip every time we pass a missionary ship?"
"Until they learn a new position. #Quote by Sabrina Zbasnik
Science Fiction quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#22. The exercise of imagination is dangerous to those who profit from the way things are because it has the power to show that the way things are is not permanent, not universal, not necessary. Having that real though limited power to put established institutions into question, imaginative literature has also the responsibility of power. The storyteller is the truthteller. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Science Fiction quotes by Trevor Alan Foris
#23. Well, Mr Reigous, sir, if one does not take the time to listen to one's inner self then the connection is lost. #Quote by Trevor Alan Foris
Science Fiction quotes by Rick Yancey
#24. The girl sleeping and the finisher, willing himself to finish her.
Why didn't he finish her?
Why couldn't he finish her? #Quote by Rick Yancey
Science Fiction quotes by Volker G. Fremuth
#25. Just because I insist on proof before I pass judgment does not mean I reject the possibility of guilt, but every situation deserves its due process! #Quote by Volker G. Fremuth
Science Fiction quotes by David Hanson
#26. I was always into science fiction as a kid. I loved science and tinkering with things. #Quote by David Hanson
Science Fiction quotes by Lev Grossman
#27. Growing up in the '70s and '80s, science fiction and especially fantasy had such a stigma attached to them. I felt so punished and exiled for being devoted to these things. #Quote by Lev Grossman
Science Fiction quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#28. I like science fiction, I like fantasy, I like time travel, so I had this idea: What if you had a phone that could call into the past? #Quote by Rainbow Rowell
Science Fiction quotes by Laura Kreitzer
#29. I thought it was just him," she says, ignoring him. "But then I found out I had the same effect, which means the Society did something to my head too."
Gage's eyes close, horror washing over him. "You really do love him."
"Yes. No. I don't know." Her cries start up again, piercing his heart. "Gage, help me."
"I love you," he says, holding her closer. "That's real. #Quote by Laura Kreitzer
Science Fiction quotes by Halo Scot
#30. I want to be a fly on the wall. Unseen. Unnoticed. But then I'd have to stop lighting things on fire. That's not going to happen. #Quote by Halo Scot
Science Fiction quotes by Deyth Banger
#31. How do you know about the world is real?...
How?...
How you don't think that you are locked in matrix... which is programmed by a genius or something more further... which we don't believe it goes like fatasy and science fiction which is ...we are cursed by a witch and we stay in a box... full of illusions. #Quote by Deyth Banger

Science Fiction quotes by Kailin Gow

Science Fiction quotes by G.M.T. Schuilling
#38. And so, Anaya's story begins with her last thought. Would I have done this if I had any option but the grave? #Quote by G.M.T. Schuilling
Science Fiction quotes by G.S. Jennsen
#39. Semantics, Admiral. I'd appreciate an honest answer."

"I'd appreciate a multitude of honest answers, but I rarely expect to receive them." Miriam sighed; the verbal tete-a-tete was growing tiresome. Time to bring an end to it with, ironically, honesty. #Quote by G.S. Jennsen
Science Fiction quotes by Sarah Zettel
#40. Now, Venus is an extremely hostile environment, and as such presents a lot of challenges for a science fiction author who wants to create life there. However, as I began to research it more thoroughly, I found myself intrigued by the possibilities the world offers. #Quote by Sarah Zettel

#41. Never trust a man willing to eat your dog. #Quote by Sheila English
Science Fiction quotes by China Mieville
#42. I think the role of science fiction is not at all to prophesy. I think it is to tell interesting, vivid, strange stories that at their best are dreamlike intense versions and visions of today. #Quote by China Mieville
Science Fiction quotes by Marcha A. Fox
#43. More likely they'd already been identified by the transponder code required on all privately owned vehicles. They were as good as dead.
"Hold on," Win said. "I know how to lose these guys."
With that he set him mouth in a grim line and banked sharply toward the canyon. #Quote by Marcha A. Fox
Science Fiction quotes by Amie Kaufman
#44. All he cares about here on the edge of forever, is her. He does not want to die. Not because he is afraid. Simply because he cannot bear the thought of leaving her behind. #Quote by Amie Kaufman
Science Fiction quotes by Bob Mayer
#45. I read so much science fiction when I was young. I believe science fiction is the genre for exploration and to learn about possibilities via book. #Quote by Bob Mayer
Science Fiction quotes by Chris Dee
#46. I am not a fan of the magical quick fix in any fiction, including fantasy, scifi and comic books. Unless Dr. Who is involved, and then only because we get to use the phrase 'Timey-wimey wibbliness' which, I'm sure you'll agree, there are not enough occasions to drop into ordinary adult conversation. #Quote by Chris Dee
Science Fiction quotes by Kyle Keyes
#47. Somehow, creation manages to form without species intervention. #Quote by Kyle Keyes
Science Fiction quotes by Timothy Zahn
#48. You happened to me," she told him, her voice more fatigued than embittered. "You came out of a grubby sixth-rate farm on a tenth-rate planet, and destroyed my life." - Mara Jade #Quote by Timothy Zahn
Science Fiction quotes by Ally Condie
#49. All of the things that were shown in early studies to be good for longevity - happy marriages, healthy bodies - are ours to have. We live long,
good lives. We die on our eightieth birthdays, surrounded by our families, before dementia sets in. Cancer, heart disease, and most debilitating
illnesses are almost entirely eradicated. This is as close to perfect as any society has ever managed to get. #Quote by Ally Condie
Science Fiction quotes by Alan Joshua
#50. To write a novel is to dream while awake, then express the dream to the reader in an absorbing way. The road leading from the writer's inner world to the readers' is paved with prose. #Quote by Alan Joshua
Science Fiction quotes by Amy J. Murphy
#51. Thing to know about the Reaches....It's always trying to kill you. Even the empty places between the stars."
Asher Corsair, Allies and Enemies: Rogues #Quote by Amy J. Murphy

#52. Where there is great love there is great harmony of thought. #Quote by Wayne Gerard Trotman
Science Fiction quotes by Kingsley Amis
#53. With some exceptions in science fiction and other genres I have small difficulty in avoiding anything that could be called American literature. I feel it is unnatural, not I think entirely because it uses a language that is not mine, however closely akin to my own. #Quote by Kingsley Amis
Science Fiction quotes by David Brin
#54. Change is the principal feature of our age and literature should explore how people deal with it. The best science fiction does that, head-on. #Quote by David Brin
Science Fiction quotes by Vinton Cerf
#55. Science fiction does not remain fiction for long. And certainly not on the Internet. #Quote by Vinton Cerf
Science Fiction quotes by Linnea Sinclair
#56. Something cascaded lightly through me - a gentling, a suffused glow. If love could be morphed into a physical element, this would be it. It was strength and yet it was vulnerability. It was all-encompassing and yet it was freedom. It was a wall of protection. It was wings of trust and faith.
It was Gabriel Ross Sullivan, answering the questions I couldn't ask. Not that everything would be okay, but that everything in his power would be done, and we'd face whatever outcomes there were together. #Quote by Linnea Sinclair
Science Fiction quotes by Joss Whedon
#57. She's terse. I can be terse. Once, in flight school, I was laconic. #Quote by Joss Whedon
Science Fiction quotes by Hal Duncan
#58. Personally, I'd like to see the word genre taken out back and shot, a bullet in the back of its head, if it's going to be so overloaded with meanings it's just gibberish skewed to self-serving doublethink. #Quote by Hal Duncan
Science Fiction quotes by Mark Hodder
#59. Here lies the body of Colonel Cornell's. The rest of the fellow, I fancy, in hell is. #Quote by Mark Hodder
Science Fiction quotes by D. Harlan Wilson
#60. Reality is shaped by the forces that destroy it. #Quote by D. Harlan Wilson
Science Fiction quotes by Jeff VanderMeer
#61. He made no distinction between pornography and science fiction, often wondering out loud why they confiscated the one and not the other. #Quote by Jeff VanderMeer
Science Fiction quotes by Laura Kreitzer
#62. You didn't tell Summer about it, did you?"
"What?" Gage scoffs. "Yeah, telling your girlfriend the Angel of Death might visit her if some switch is flipped is normal pillow talk. #Quote by Laura Kreitzer
Science Fiction quotes by Octavia Butler
#63. The thing about science fiction is that it's totally wide open. But it's wide open in a conditional way. #Quote by Octavia Butler
Science Fiction quotes by Mira Grant
#64. Science fiction and fantasy literature has always been defined by tales of heroism. It is meant to represent humanity at our very best, willing to oppose all odds in order to protect the side of good. #Quote by Mira Grant
Science Fiction quotes by Ann Leckie
#65. Science fiction is huge and varied, and there's almost any sort of book or story you might imagine. #Quote by Ann Leckie
Science Fiction quotes by Asse Sauga
#66. Magic is magic as long as humans can explain it logically! #Quote by Asse Sauga
Science Fiction quotes by Leslie Nielsen
#67. I would love to see what's going to happen with science fiction with peoples' heads, because we still have people running around in the year 2050 or 2100 or 2200 and they have incredible technology and you see the effects: laser beams and rays and beaming down and beaming up. Incredible technical things happening, but everybody is still running around jealous, fighting, whacking, cheating. There's got to be something going on! Some kind of change. I'd like to see something starting to happen in that area, with the psychology of the human being and how that changed. #Quote by Leslie Nielsen
Science Fiction quotes by Trevor Alan Foris
#68. All eyes watch as the light passes; as it disappears there is an audible sigh, just as the doors slam open. #Quote by Trevor Alan Foris
Science Fiction quotes by Pittacus Lore
#69. Even when the world throws it worst and then turns in its back, there is still always hope #Quote by Pittacus Lore
Science Fiction quotes by Neil Gaiman
#70. Fiction is dangerous because it lets you into other people's heads. It shows you that the world doesn't have to be like the one you live in." At the first nationally recognized science fiction convention in China in 2007, Gaiman took a party official aside and said, "While not actually illegal, science fiction is regarded as dangerous and subversive in China. Why did you say yes to a science-fiction convention?"
The party official answered, "In China, we're really good at making things people bring to us, but we don't invent, we don't innovate." When Chinese party officials visited Google, Apple and Microsoft, they asked what the executives read as children. The official continued: "They all said, 'We read science fiction. The world doesn't have to be the way it is right now. We can change it.' " "That," said Gaiman, "is the big dangerous thing. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Science Fiction quotes by Gilles Deleuze
#71. Of course, Kafka doesn't see himself as a sort of party. He doesn't even pretend to be revolutionary, whatever his socialist sympathies may be. He knows that all the lines link him to a literary machine of expression for which he is simultaneously the gears, the mechanic, the operator, and the victim. So how will he proceed in this bachelor machine that doesn't make use of, and can't make use of, social critique? How will he make a revolution?
He will act on the German language such as it is in Czechoslovakia. Since it is a deterritorialized language in many ways, he will push the deterritorialization farther, not through intensities, reversals and thickenings of the language but through a sobriety that makes language take flight on a straight line, anticipates or produces its segmentations. Expression must sweep up content; the same process must happen to form ... It is not a politics of pessimism, nor a literary caricature or a form of science fiction. #Quote by Gilles Deleuze
Science Fiction quotes by Stanislaw Lem
#72. One of the most incredible secrets of science fiction (although one not too closely guarded) is the fact that 99 percent of its authors do not know even the titles and authors of today's learned works, but still they want to top these scholars with their knowledge of the year 6000. #Quote by Stanislaw Lem
Science Fiction quotes by Mary Brock Jones
#73. He slept still in the induced coma his doctors had kept him in since he arrived. She could see the bruises, see the healing wound of the burn that stretched over his side. She reached out a hand, hovered just above the field and traced the path of the yellow, black and angry red of his healing flesh.
She had done that to him. #Quote by Mary Brock Jones
Science Fiction quotes by Warren Ellis
#74. Science fiction is always about the time it's written in. 1984 was always about 1948. Science fiction is social fiction. I #Quote by Warren Ellis
Science Fiction quotes by Yoss
#75. Super Extra Grande. If it's only medium sized, don't even bother. #Quote by Yoss
Science Fiction quotes by Andrea K. Host
#76. I walked into adventure and adventure has given me blisters. #Quote by Andrea K. Host
Science Fiction quotes by China Mieville
#77. Fantasy and science fiction can be literal as well as allegorical and there's nothing wrong with enjoying a monster like a giant squid for what it is, as well as searching for metaphor. #Quote by China Mieville
Science Fiction quotes by E.J. Koh
#78. Then she loved him as she would a manifestation of herself, both silenced and wounded in existence, both everything and nothing to eternity. #Quote by E.J. Koh
Science Fiction quotes by Alastair Reynolds
#79. I'm always a little bit cautious around invented terminology because so much science fiction is off-putting to the uninitiated. You open up the first page, and it's full of all these made-up words. #Quote by Alastair Reynolds
Science Fiction quotes by Allen Covert
#80. I was obsessed with movies when I was younger. During the summer, I would go by myself to a theater down the street from my house. I saw every comedy or science fiction movie that came out. My kids love going to the movies, but 3D scares them. #Quote by Allen Covert
Science Fiction quotes by Don DeLillo
#81. Talent is everything. If you've got talent, nothing else matters. You can screw up your personal life something terrible. So what. If you've got talent, it's there in reserve. Anybody who has talent they know they have it and that's it. It's what makes you what you are. It tells you you're you. Talent is everything; sanity is nothing. I'm convinced of it. I think I had something once. I showed promise, didn't I? But I was too sane. I couldn't make the leap out of my own soul into the soul of the universe. That's the leap they all made. From Blake to Rimbaud. I don't write anything but checks. I read science fiction. I go on business trips to South Bend and Rochester. The one in Minnesota. Not Rochester, New York. Rochester, Minnesota. I couldn't make the leap. #Quote by Don DeLillo
Science Fiction quotes by Thomas Trask
#82. Souls, Ms. Ellis, are for people who blame devils for their illness and praise angels for the cure. I do neither. #Quote by Thomas Trask
Science Fiction quotes by Trevor Alan Foris
#83. ... but it didn't change the fact that the conscious mind remained the same for a Regen and you just couldn't go through several lifetimes and retain the innocence of youth; some things you just could not unsee, unfeel or undo. #Quote by Trevor Alan Foris
Science Fiction quotes by G.M.T. Schuilling
#84. She watched him from afar and gave him the time and space to travel the emotional rollercoaster, commencing at stunned, progressing to upset and lurking at angry. Then he brooded and grieved for the end of his life as he knew it. #Quote by G.M.T. Schuilling
Science Fiction quotes by Robyn Mundell
#85. Life is funny that way. Sometimes the dumbest thing you do turns out to be the smartest. #Quote by Robyn Mundell
Science Fiction quotes by Cynthia Breazeal
#86. My most memorable science fiction experience was 'Star Wars' and seeing R2D2 and C3PO. I fell in love with those robots. #Quote by Cynthia Breazeal
Science Fiction quotes by Nick Bostrom
#87. The image of evolution as a process that reliably produces benign effects is difficult to reconcile with the enormous suffering that we see in both the human and the natural world. Those who cherish evolution's achievements may do so more from an aesthetic than an ethical perspective. Yet the pertinent question is not what kind of future it would be fascinating to read about in a science fiction novel or to see depicted in a nature documentary, but what kind of future it would be good to live in: two very different matters. #Quote by Nick Bostrom
Science Fiction quotes by Kim Cormack
#88. As her vision flickered one last time, the man was gone; it was her mother looking into her eyes.
Her mother's eyes were filled with so much love that it seemed to release her from her pain and fear as it did when she was a small child. Her mother cradled her as a baby, rocking her back and forth. She was safe now in her mother's arms. She was at peace. Mommy, her heart sang, you're here to save me. #Quote by Kim Cormack
Science Fiction quotes by Kate Egan
#89. In The Hunger Games, there's something for everyone.
A gripping adventure.
A political commentary.
A love story.
A cautionary tale.
Some call it science fiction, some call it potential reality.
Some say it's for teenagers, some say it's for adults.
The book--and now the film--captures themes and concerns that seem timely.
But its real strength, in the end, is that it's timeless. It speaks to us today, and it will speak--even more powerfully--tomorrow. #Quote by Kate Egan
Science Fiction quotes by Trevor Alan Foris
#90. Finding that out was a blast, you know, waking up on the mortuary slab, about to be cut open after being declared dead. #Quote by Trevor Alan Foris
Science Fiction quotes by Isaac Asimov
#91. She's qualified all right. She understands robots like a sister - comes from hating human beings so much, I think. #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Science Fiction quotes by Y.A. Marks
#92. I wondered for a second why I cared so much, but I knew I did. I wanted to be more like the Upper-Cs. Not snobby or mean, but just a bit more. It was hard to explain, I just liked the thought of being dolled up and having a few nice things. #Quote by Y.A. Marks
Science Fiction quotes by Francis Ford Coppola
#93. I landed a job with Roger Corman. The job was to write the English dialogue for a Russian science fiction picture. I didn't speak any Russian. He didn't care whether I could understand what they were saying; he wanted me to make up dialogue. #Quote by Francis Ford Coppola
Science Fiction quotes by Douglas Adams
#94. One moment I was sitting in your ship feeling very depressed, and the next moment I was standing here feeling utterly miserable. An Improbability Field I expect. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Science Fiction quotes by Trevor Alan Foris
#95. Aww, look...' placing them on her lap, stroking the new arrival. 'Look at their cute ears and all their sticky up hair and those big eyes and the squidgy pot bellies... #Quote by Trevor Alan Foris
Science Fiction quotes by William Gibson
#96. The culture is still there, and people are still doing it. I imagine some people are doing it very well indeed. As for me, it definitely was my native literary culture. Science fiction was where I'm from, but on the way to now, I went through a lot of other territory, and I wasn't really that culturally conventional an SF writer when I started. #Quote by William Gibson
Science Fiction quotes by Ridley Scott
#97. I think if I'm going to do a science fiction, I'm going to go down a new path that I want to do. #Quote by Ridley Scott
Science Fiction quotes by Halo Scot
#98. A man with morals is a rarity at the end of the world. #Quote by Halo Scot
Science Fiction quotes by Christine Feehan
#99. Draden. Who knew there were men like him in the world? He made it exciting to wake up in the morning. She looked forward to the day. To their shared laughter. Their conversations. The intense attraction between them. Who wouldn't fall in love with him? #Quote by Christine Feehan
Science Fiction quotes by Max Brooks
#100. Before I'm a zombie nerd, before I'm a science-fiction nerd, I am a history nerd. #Quote by Max Brooks
Science Fiction quotes by Frederik Pohl
#101. It's clear that science and science fiction have overlapping populations. #Quote by Frederik Pohl
Science Fiction quotes by Kailin Gow
#102. Leaders can't afford to let their hearts get in the way. They must always do what needs to be done.", FADE by Kailin Gow #Quote by Kailin Gow
Science Fiction quotes by Chess Desalls
#103. No doubt you've experienced something similar in books, movies, novels–whatever you use as an excuse to get away, to suspend reality. Literary characters, like these projections, draw you in and cultivate feelings of friendship on your part. Although, no matter how much you learn about them, how much time you spend with them–how far you can see into their thoughts and words, how they interact with others, their looks, what they wear–they will never, ever know you. #Quote by Chess Desalls
Science Fiction quotes by Greg Egan
#104. A recent survey of 2,000 male graduates of Harvard Business School
found that penis length & IQ were equally good predictors of annual
income.
from Eugene #Quote by Greg Egan
Science Fiction quotes by Chase E.F.  Bolling
#105. Necessity and valor formed the Vanguard. It was born from the courage of all who took up arms against tyranny and all those who decided to stand by our standard. When things began to fall apart, I just used the tools my Creator gave me to improve the lives of my family and the people that choose to follow me. Why allow people to live in fear, poverty, and bondage when I had the tools will and desire to change it? I didn't want to be that servant who buried his talents. My goal is to build a nation that is free, and just, with prosperous and happy people. #Quote by Chase E.F. Bolling
Science Fiction quotes by Amie Kaufman
#106. But when there's no hope to be found anywhere, even the tiniest chance is worth taking. #Quote by Amie Kaufman
Science Fiction quotes by Hafsah Faizal
#107. I saw the Earth, yes. I saw the colors so magnificent, so vivid, so real. It was hope so large and round, green and blue. #Quote by Hafsah Faizal
Science Fiction quotes by Jean M. Auel
#108. I have heard Science Fiction and Fantasy referred to as the fiction of ideas, and I like that definition, but it's the mainstream public that chooses my books for the most part. #Quote by Jean M. Auel
Science Fiction quotes by Caroline George
#109. When you find a truth that surpasses your desire to fit trends and meet approval, you can be certain it's worth fighting to spread. #Quote by Caroline George
Science Fiction quotes by T.S. Pettibone
#110. Let the deal be spoken first and then manipulate it to your advantage. #Quote by T.S. Pettibone
Science Fiction quotes by Josh Reynolds
#111. Victory slipped through our fingers the moment Horus chose to reach into the dark and something reached back. We sacrificed our ambitions on the altar of his hubris, and when he fell, he dragged us all down inexorably with him. And not just Horus- Fulgrim as well. And Angron. Magnus. Lorgar. The gods you worship are nothing save lies, hidden behind masks of folklore and superstition. Interdimensional cancers, their mindless hunger confused for sentience amongst the lost and the damned". #Quote by Josh Reynolds

Science Fiction quotes by Volker G. Fremuth
#113. What was their original sin? Eve allowed her bias to sway the information by frustrating an unbiased truth in favor of a narrative she wanted to believe. #Quote by Volker G. Fremuth
Science Fiction quotes by Jeno Marz
#114. Personally, I could care less about how people chose their graves. What I do care about is that I don't want to be dragged along into one, especially by someone who has already lived their life to the fullest. #Quote by Jeno Marz

Science Fiction quotes by Philip Pullman
#121. [I]n adult literary fiction, stories are there on sufferance. Other things are felt to be more important: technique, style, literary knowingness. Adult readers who do deal in straightforward stories find themselves sidelined into a genre such as crime or science fiction, where no one expects literary craftsmanship. But stories are vital. Stories never fail us, because, as Isaac Bashevis Singer says, "events never grow stale." There's more wisdom in a story than in volumes of philosophy. [Contemporary writers, however,] take up their stories as with a pair of tongs. They're embarrassed by them. If they could write novels without stories in them, they would. Sometimes they do. #Quote by Philip Pullman
Science Fiction quotes by Sergei Lukyanenko
#122. I often use detective elements in my books. I love detective novels. But I also think science fiction and detective stories are very close and friendly genres, which shows in the books by Isaac Asimov, John Brunner, and Glen Cook. However, whilst even a tiny drop of science fiction may harm a detective story, a little detective element benefits science fiction. Such a strange puzzle. #Quote by Sergei Lukyanenko

"It is a risk. They also may save everything. #Quote by G.S. Jennsen
Science Fiction quotes by Arkady Strugatsky
#125. Xenology is an unnatural mixture of science fiction and formal logic. At its core is a flawed assumption - that an alien race would be psychologically human. #Quote by Arkady Strugatsky
Science Fiction quotes by Walter Hill
#126. I think action movies on the whole have moved more and more into large spectacle, even leaving out super hero movies that seem to me to be more a fantastic science fiction than they are action movies. #Quote by Walter Hill
Science Fiction quotes by Michael Uslan
#127. If you talk about genres - I don't care if you're talking about war, Westerns, science fiction, horror, fantasy, humor, romance - anything you can find, strolling the aisles of a Borders or a Barnes & Noble, I can bring you many comic books representing each genre. #Quote by Michael Uslan

Science Fiction quotes by Peter F. Hamilton
#129. People are put off by the perception of science fiction, and it doesn't help if you've got references to quantum this and quantum that on the first page, and people think, 'This isn't for me,' and chuck it. I'm probably a pretty bad offender, given how far in the future some of my stuff is. #Quote by Peter F. Hamilton

Science Fiction quotes by Nalo Hopkinson
#132. I tried to get the word out to people who are information hubs in their communities, because they could propagate the call quickly. One challenge is that breaking science fiction means, well, breaking science fiction. Many communities of colour have a different approach to narratives of science. #Quote by Nalo Hopkinson
Science Fiction quotes by Scott B. Pruden
#133. By the standards of a tourist strolling past looking for a quick lunch, the place was a dive. The sign on the window was small and easy to miss, and the antique feel of the place wasn't the prepackaged, old-shit-on-the-wall nostalgia that came with so many chain restaurants. The cafe was just old, and everything about it said old. But Jon liked it that way, if only because it kept the tourists away and spared him from hearing imported ignorance when there was plenty of local ignorance to go around. #Quote by Scott B. Pruden
Science Fiction quotes by Linden Morningstar
#134. Lyn, this was the "Aha!" moment when Desta found another astonishing skeleton. Remarkably, it appeared utterly human but existed before humans walked the Earth. Clutched in its hand a small sphere attached to an elaborate gold necklace. The sphere was not like any material on Earth. Remember when I told you our origins might lie in the stars? Well, I think we found the answer in the Afar desert

Science Fiction quotes by Kameron Hurley

Science Fiction quotes by Jack Williamson
#137. "Hard" science fiction probes alternative possible futures by means of reasoned extrapolations in much the same way that good historical fiction reconstructs the probable past. Even far-out fantasy can present a significant test of human values exposed to a new environment. Deriving its most cogent ideas from the tension between permanence and change, science fiction combines the diversions of novelty with its pertinent kind of realism. #Quote by Jack Williamson
Science Fiction quotes by Peter James West

Science Fiction quotes by Michael Crichton
#143. We have created a man with not one brain but two ... This new brain is intended to control the biological brain ... The patient's biological brain is the peripheral terminal
the only peripheral terminal
for the new computer ... And therefore the patient's biological brain, indeed his whole body, has become a terminal for the new computer. We have created a man who is one single, large, complex computer terminal. The patient is a read-out device for the new computer, and is helpless to control the readout as a TV screen is helpless to control the information presented on it. #Quote by Michael Crichton

Science Fiction quotes by Lalla Ward
#145. I think Douglas was a real one-off. He was so clever and so intelligent and so well read in real science that he could make science fiction work as well as it did. And just such fun to have around, he was just such a lovely man. #Quote by Lalla Ward

#147. New York City is finished," he said. "They can't keep order there, and you can't have business without order. It'll take a hundred years to sort things out and get it all going again."
"What do you hear of the U.S. government? I said. "We don't have electricity an hour a month anymore and there's nothing on the air but the preachers anyway."
"Well, I hear that this Harvey Albright pretends to be running things out of Minneapolis now. It was Chicago, but that may have gone by the boards. Congress hasn't met since twelve twenty-one." Ricketts said, using a common shorthand for the destruction of Washington a few days before Christmas some years back. "We're still fighting skirmishes with Mexico. The Everglades are drowning. Trade is becoming next to impossible, from everything I can tell, and business here is drying up. It all seems like a bad dream. The future sure isn't what it used to be, is it?"
"We believe in the future, sir. Only it's not like the world we've left behind," Joseph said.
"How's that?"

Science Fiction quotes by Daniel LaMonte
#151. Daniel, I was asked of a budding author, how do you know if your story is on track? My answer: I start by knowing my intention, my target. Then, with purpose, I write the scene that unfolds before me, as faithfully as is human. - Daniel LaMonte #Quote by Daniel LaMonte
Science Fiction quotes by E. O. Wilson
#152. The solutions like freezing zygotes, fertilized eggs, of all kinds of animals and so on, or keeping them in zoos and having arboreta where we have trees, all these things have been promoted. Even getting the complete genetic code of various fishes so we can let them pass away and then we'll pull them back. That is science fiction run amok. #Quote by E. O. Wilson

Science Fiction quotes by Aaron Allston
#163. The chief difference between horror fans and science fiction fans lies in why they won't walk backwards. A horror fan won't walk backwards because he knows he'll be knifed by a madman. A science fiction fan won't walk backwards because he knows he'll step on the cat. #Quote by Aaron Allston
Science Fiction quotes by Orson Scott Card
#164. You believe that the kind of story you want to tell might be best received by the science fiction and fantasy audience. I hope you're right, because in many ways this is the best audience in the world to write for. They're open-minded and intelligent. They want to think as well as feel, understand as well as dream. Above all, they want to be led into places that no one has ever visited before. It's a privilege to tell stories to these readers, and an honour when they applaud the tale you tell. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Science Fiction quotes by Andrew R.  Williams
#165. After changing shape several times, the ball eventually turned into a huge face. It floated alongside the air-car. This time, time instead of sending him a mental message, the face spoke out aloud and the whole air-car vibrated with its intensity. "If you are foolish enough to renege on your contract, you will be severely punished. For your sake, I hope you wouldn't do such a thing." When Tarmy made no attempt to respond, the face turned and pressed itself against the millipede-free window. A moment later, Tarmy felt the fat slug entering his mind, the sign that the face was attempting to use its powers to obtain his response by other means. But as the slug dug deeper, Samantha's cover stories began springing out of the corners of his mind. Instead of obtaining Tarmy's agreement, all that the face saw was a burning army transporter surrounded by bodies. Undeterred, the face continued its assault. Samantha had anticipated that Tarmy might come up against an adept, so the mental images of death and destruction flowed unchecked. After failing to break Tarmy's defences, the face removed the slug and tried reason. "You can't win, Mr Tarleton, so why don't you do yourself a favour and cooperate? It will be better for you in the long run. Now, where is the miniature pulse drive engine?" Tarmy realised why the millipedes hadn't been allowed to attack. It was obvious that the Great Ones were hoping to retrieve the engine. When Tarmy didn't respond, the face said, "I am prepared to ove #Quote by Andrew R. Williams

Science Fiction quotes by Jean M. Auel

Science Fiction quotes by Georgia Clark

Science Fiction quotes by Ralph Robert Moore
#179. I loved all the Hardy Boy books. Once I collected my paperboy money each Friday I'd walk into town, make the rounds of all the local thrift shops (where you could buy a used hardback for a quarter.) I'd always get excited swinging open the front cover of a newly discovered book in the series. Let's solve a mystery! And investigate the long-abandoned water tower north of town. They were a lot of fun. And science fiction, although these were paperbacks. I stopped going to church when I was about ten. I'd get dressed and go out the front door telling my mom I was going to church, but I'd have a science fiction paperback jammed in the back pocket of my trousers. Once I got near the church (St. Mary's on Greenwich Avenue), I'd veer down a side street, pull out my book, and stumble along the sidewalks for an hour, visiting another planet, sometimes another galaxy. My mother eventually found out about my deception - a friend told her she had spotted me walking, reading, when I was supposed to be at mass. I explained to my mother I didn't want to attend church anymore, and she accepted that. If it made her sad, she never showed me. She was actually an incredibly good mother, which I realize more and more as I age. #Quote by Ralph Robert Moore
Science Fiction quotes by Stephen King
#180. There were movies to go see at the Gem, which has long since been torn down; science fiction movies like Gog with Richard Egan and westerns with Audie Murphy (Teddy saw every movie Audie Murphy made at least three times; he believed Murphy was almost a god) and war movies with John Wayne. There were games and endless bolted meals, lawns to mow, places to run to, walls to pitch pennies against, people to clap you on the back. And now I sit here trying to look through an IBM keyboard and see that time, trying to recall the best and the worst of that green and brown summer, and I can almost feel the skinny, scabbed boy still buried in this advancing body and hear those sounds.

Science Fiction quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#183. When I was small, I never wanted to step in puddles. Not because of any fear of drowned worms or wet stockings; I was by and large a grubby child, with a blissful disregard for filth of any kind.
It was because I couldn't bring myself believe that that perfect smooth expanse was no more than I thin film of water over solid earth. I believed it was an opening into some fathomless space. Sometimes, seeing the tiny ripples caused by my approach, I thought the puddle impossibly deep, a bottomless sea in which the lazy coil of a tentacle and gleam of scale lay hidden, with the threat of huge bodies and sharp teeth adrift and silent in the far-down depths.
And then, looking down into reflection, I would see my own round face and frizzled hair against a featureless blue sweep, and think instead that the puddle was the entrance to another sky. If I stepped in there, I would drop at once, and keep on falling, on and on, into blue space.
The only time I would dare walk though a puddle was at twilight, when the evening stars came out. If I looked in the water and saw one lighted pinprick there, I could slash through unafraid--for if I should fall into the puddle and on into space, I could grab hold of the star as I passed, and be safe.
Even now, when I see a puddle in my path, my mind half-halts--though my feet do not--then hurries on, with only the echo of the though left behind.
What if, this time, you fall? #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
Science Fiction quotes by Sally Wiener Grotta

Science Fiction quotes by Billy Bob Thornton
#186. Directing is a big responsibility to take on. I think I'm only good at doing things I know very well. I don't direct movies because I get offered the new vampire movie or science fiction movie. I don't get offered those, anyway, but if I did, I would just tell 'em, "Look, I'm the wrong guy." I only do things about people and situations, and I do the ones that I think I'm the best guy for the job on, which is usually something I generate myself. #Quote by Billy Bob Thornton

Science Fiction quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#191. I know that I am going to meet a personal variation on reality; a partial view of reality. But I know also that by that partiality, that distancing from the shared experience, it will be new: a revelation. It will be a vision, a more or less powerful or haunting dream. A space-voyage through somebody else's psychic abysses. It will fall short of tragedy, because tragedy is the truth, and truth is what the very great artists, the absolute novelists, tell. It will not be truth; but it will be imagination. Truth is best. For it encompasses tragedy and partakes of the eternal joy. But very few of us know it; the best we can do is recognize it. Imagination - to me - is the next best. For it partakes of Creation, which is one aspect of the eternal joy.
All the rest is either Politics or Pedantry, or Mainstream Fiction, may it rest in peace. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Science Fiction quotes by Olaf Stapledon
#192. Is the beauty of the Whole really enhanced by our agony? And is the Whole really beautiful? And what is beauty? Throughout all his existence man has been striving to hear the music of the spheres, and has seemed to himself once and again to catch some phrase of it, or even a hint of the whole form of it. Yet he can never be sure that he has truly heard it, nor even that there is any such perfect music at all to be heard. Inevitably so, for if it exists, it is not for him in his littleness. But one thing is certain. Man himself, at the very least, is music, a brave theme that makes music also of its vast accompaniment, its matrix of storms and stars. Man himself in his degree is eternally a beauty in the eternal form of things. It is very good to have been man. And so we may go forward together with laughter in our hearts, and peace, thankful for the past, and for our own courage. For we shall make after all a fair conclusion to this brief music that is man. #Quote by Olaf Stapledon

Science Fiction quotes by Jaak Panksepp
#201. Paul Davies takes us on a logically and rhetorically compelling modern search for human agency. This outstanding analysis, well informed by naturalistic views of our evolved affective nature, is the kind of philosophical work that is essential for a field to move forward when ever-increasing findings from modern science are inconsistent with traditional philosophical arguments. This book is for all who wish to immerse themselves in the modern search for free will. It is steeped in the rich liqueur of current scientific and philosophical perspectives and delusions. #Quote by Jaak Panksepp
Science Fiction quotes by David Pearce
#202. The Hedonistic Imperative outlines how genetic engineering and nanotechnology will abolish suffering in all sentient life. This project is ambitious but technically feasible. It is also instrumentally rational and ethically mandatory. The metabolic pathways of pain and malaise evolved only because they once served the fitness of our genes. They will be replaced by a different sort of neural architecture. States of sublime well-being are destined to become the genetically pre-programmed norm of mental health. The world's last aversive experience will be a precisely dateable event. #Quote by David Pearce

not only for curious artists, students, and lay people, but also for seasoned researchers and photographers. The eclectic Frankel is both a scientist and photographer, and with the cold logic of the one and the inspired vision of the other, she covers an array of topics sure to stimulate your imagination and sense of wonder at the incredible vastness of the physical world. #Quote by Clifford A. Pickover
Science Fiction quotes by Giordano Bruno
#205. There is a single general space, a single vast immensity which we may freely call void: in it are unnumerable globes like this on which we live and grow, this space we declare to be infinite, since neither reason, convenience, sense-perception nor nature assign to it a limit. #Quote by Giordano Bruno
Science Fiction quotes by James Shapiro
#206. We've inherited many ideas about writing that emerged in the eighteenth century, especially an interest in literature as both an expression and an exploration of the self. This development - part of what distinguishes the "modern" from the "early modern" - has shaped the work of many of our most celebrated authors, whose personal experiences indelibly and visibly mark their writing. It's fair to say that the fiction and poetry of many of the finest writers of the past century or so - and I'm thinking here of Conrad, Proust, Lawrence, Joyce, Woolf, Kafka, Plath, Ellison, Lowell, Sexton, Roth, and Coetzee, to name but a few - have been deeply autobiographical. The link between the life and the work is one of the things we're curious about and look for when we pick up the latest book by a favorite author. #Quote by James Shapiro

Science Fiction quotes by Sally Ride
#213. For whatever reason, I didn't succumb to the stereotype that science wasn't for girls. I got encouragement from my parents. I never ran into a teacher or a counselor who told me that science was for boys. A lot of my friends did. #Quote by Sally Ride

Science Fiction quotes by Neal Stephenson
#215. If you can't test it, it's not theorics
it's metatheorics. A branch of philosophy. So, if you want to think of it this way, our test equipment is what defines the boundary separating theorics from philosophy. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Science Fiction quotes by Drew Gilpin Faust
#216. I think that issues of gender have been discussed widely at Harvard. But I think I was chosen clearly on the merits, and I wish to operate as president on the merits. I think, on one level, we might say that I can affirm that women have the aptitude to do science or to do anything, including being president of Harvard. #Quote by Drew Gilpin Faust
Science Fiction quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#217. I thought this couldn't happen in astronomy. Isn't celestial mechanics supposed to be an exact science? So we poor backward biologists were always being told. #Quote by Arthur C. Clarke

Science Fiction quotes by Richard Hamming
#219. I need to discuss science vs. engineering. Put glibly:
In science if you know what you are doing you should not be doing it.
In engineering if you do not know what you are doing you should not be doing it. #Quote by Richard Hamming
Science Fiction quotes by Donna J. Haraway

Science Fiction quotes by Edward O. Wilson
#222. The predisposition to religious belief is an ineradicable part of human behavior. Mankind has produced 100,000 religions. It is an illusion to think that scientific humanism and learning will dispel religious belief. Men would rather believe than know... A kind of Darwinistic survival of the fittest has occurred with religions... The ecological principle called Gause's law holds that competition is maximal between species with identical needs... Even submission to secular religions such as Communism and guru cults involve willing subordination of the individual to the group. Religious practices confer biological advantage. The mechanisms of religion include (1) objectification (the reduction of reality to images and definitions that are easily understood and cannot be refuted), (2) commitment through faith (a kind of tribalism enacted through self-surrender), (3) and myth (the narratives that explain the tribe's favored position on the earth, often incorporating supernatural forces struggling for control, apocalypse, and millennium). #Quote by Edward O. Wilson
Science Fiction quotes by Stephanie Mills
#223. There is onslaught is the accelerating momentum of technologies and instrumental mentalities that are exterminating spontaneity, undermining love and common decency. It's a thief of time and includes all the palpable and subtle violations of body, mind, and spirit done in the name of science, government, enterprise, progress, and profit. #Quote by Stephanie Mills
Science Fiction quotes by Peter   Atkins
#224. Someone with a fresh mind, one not conditioned by upbringing and environment, would doubtless look at science and the powerful reductionism that it inspires as overwhelmingly the better mode of understanding the world, and would doubtless scorn religion as sentimental wishful thinking. Would not that same uncluttered mind also see the attempts to reconcile science and religion by disparaging the reduction of the complex to the simple as attempts guided by muddle-headed sentiment and intellectually dishonest emotion?

...Religion closes off the central questions of existence by attempting to dissuade us from further enquiry by asserting that we cannot ever hope to comprehend. We are, religion asserts, simply too puny. Through fear of being shown to be vacuous, religion denies the awesome power of human comprehension. It seeks to thwart, by encouraging awe in things unseen, the disclosure of the emptiness of faith. Religion, in contrast to science, deploys the repugnant view that the world is too big for our understanding. Science, in contrast to religion, opens up the great questions of being to rational discussion, to discussion with the prospect of resolution and elucidation. Science, above all, respects the power of the human intellect. Science is the apotheosis of the intellect and the consummation of the Renaissance. Science respects more deeply the potential of humanity than religion ever can. #Quote by Peter Atkins
Science Fiction quotes by James Gleick
#225. Science was constructed against a lot of nonsense, #Quote by James Gleick

Science Fiction quotes by Benjamin Banneker

Science Fiction quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#231. Mysticism is like pure science; it has no use. Mysticism is just the human longing to know ... Occult is not science. Occult is just technology. #Quote by Jaggi Vasudev
Science Fiction quotes by Elif Safak
#232. Page 158:
'Architecture is team work,' said Sinan. 'Apprenticeship is not.'
'Why don't you want us to look at each other's drawings? ' Jahan once asked.
'Because you'll compare. If you think you are better than the others, you'll be poisoned by hubris. If you think another's better, poisoned by envy. Either way, it is poison. #Quote by Elif Safak
Science Fiction quotes by Sufjan Stevens
#233. The best fiction is geared towards conflict. We learn most about our characters through tension, when they are put up against insurmountable obstacles. This is true in real life. #Quote by Sufjan Stevens
Science Fiction quotes by Gita Mehta
