26 Science Fiction Quotes from Literature

Perhaps no man could appreciate his own world until he had seen it from space. ~ A Fall of Moondust by Arthur C. Clarke I shall never sleep calmly again when I think of the horrors that lurk ceaselessly behind life in time and in space, and of those unhallowed blasphemies from elder stars which dream beneath the sea, known and favoured by a nightmare cult ready and eager to loose them upon the world whenever another earthquake shall heave their monstrous stone city again to the sun and air. ~ The Call of Cthulhu by H. P. Lovecraft They worshipped, so they said, the Great Old Ones who lived ages before there were any men, and who came to the young world out of the sky. ~ The Call of Cthulhu by H. P. Lovecraft How many men at this hour are living in a state of bondage to the machines? How many pend their whole lives, from the cradle to the grave, in tending them by night and day? Is it not plain that the machines are gaining ground upon us, when we reflect on the increasing number of those who are bound down to them as slaves, and of those who devote their whole souls to the advancement of the mechanical kingdom? ~ Erewhon by Samuel Butler "Nobody fixes things. When they break you throw them away." ~ The Variable Man by Philip K. Dick Continual complexity makes it impossible for any of us to know anything outside our own personal field-I can't follow the work of the man sitting at the next desk over from me. Too much knowledge has piled up in each field. And there's too many fields." ~ The Variable Man by Philip K. Dick In one respect at least the Martians are a happy people; they have no lawyers. ~ A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs He, I know--for the question had been discussed among us long before the Time Machine was made--thought but cheerlessly of the Advancement of Mankind, and saw in the growing pile of civilization only a foolish heaping that must inevitably fall back upon and destroy its makers in the end. ~ The Time Machine by H. G. Wells Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. ~ The Time Machine by H. G. Wells By the toll of a billion deaths man has bought his birthright of the earth, and it is his against all comers; it would still be his were the Martians ten times as mighty as they are. For neither do men live nor die in vain. ~ The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells
