Quotes from Sir Arthur

Alex mentioned one of my favorite quotes from the British author and great thinker Arthur C. Clarke at coffee this morning, one that I first posted on this blog about twelve years ago.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

I looked up Clarke for more brain fodder this morning. His quotes rank right up there with my two reigning quote smith favorites, Hemingway and Napoleon. And so I will share a few more choice morsels with you.

The limits of the possible can only be defined by going beyond them into the impossible.

I don't believe in astrology; I'm a Sagittarius and we're skeptical.

How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.

Politicians should read science fiction, not westerns and detective stories. 

This is the first age that's ever paid much attention to the future, which is a little ironic since we may not have one.
