Carl Sagan
“I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time -- when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness...

The dumbing down of American is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30 second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance”
Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

Idowu Koyenikan
“We do not get to choose how we start out in life. We do not get to choose the day we are born or the family we are born into, what we are named at birth, what country we are born in, and we do not get to choose our ancestry. All these things are predetermined by a higher power. By the time you are old enough to start making decisions for yourself, a lot of things in your life are already in place. It’s important, therefore, that you focus on the future, the only thing that you can change.”
Idowu Koyenikan, Wealth for All: Living a Life of Success at the Edge of Your Ability

Oscar Wilde
“Spontaneity is a meticulously prepared art”
Oscar Wilde

“No one else knows exactly what the future holds for you, no one else knows what obstacles you've overcome to be where you are, so don't expect others to feel as passionate about your dreams as you do.”
Germany Kent

Madeleine L'Engle
“You cannot see the past that did not happen any more than you can foresee the future.”
Madeleine L'Engle, The Arm of the Starfish

Arthur C. Clarke
“There's no real objection to escapism, in the right places... We all want to escape occasionally. But science fiction is often very far from escapism, in fact you might say that science fiction is escape into reality... It's a fiction which does concern itself with real issues: the origin of man; our future. In fact I can't think of any form of literature which is more concerned with real issues, reality.”
Arthur C. Clarke

“If you're reading this, I hope God opens incredible doors for your life this year. Greatness is upon you. You must believe it though.”

Ljupka Cvetanova
“My expectations for the future? A beautiful past.”
Ljupka Cvetanova, The New Land

Dexter Palmer
“Storytelling--that's not the future. The future, I'm afraid, is flashes and impulses. It's mode up of moments and fragments, and stories won't survive.”
Dexter Palmer, The Dream of Perpetual Motion

Louis L'Amour
“Can you see the future, Kerbouchard?"
"Who would wish to? Our lives hold a veil between anticipation and horror. Anticipation is the carrot suspended before the jackass to keep him moving forward. Horror is what he would see if he took his eyes off the carrot.”
Louis L'Amour, The Walking Drum

Yuval Noah Harari
“A friend once told me that what she fears most about growing old is becoming irrelevant, turning into a nostalgic old woman who cannot understand the world around her, or contribute much to it. This is what we fear collectively, as a species, when we hear of superhumans. We sense that in such a world, our identity, our dreams and even our fears will be irrelevant, and we will have nothing more to contribute. Whatever you are today – be it a devout Hindu cricket player or an aspiring lesbian journalist – in an upgraded world you will feel like a Neanderthal hunter in Wall Street. You won’t belong.”
Yuval Noah Harari, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow

“Drzeci se za proslost,
odricemo se buducnosti.”
Tamara Stamenkovic

Derek Thompson
“In all sorts of markets—music, film, art, and politics—the future of popularity will be harder to predict as the broadcast power of radio and television democratizes and the channels of exposure grow.... The gatekeepers had their day. Now there are simply too many gates to keep.”
Derek Thompson, Hit Makers: The Science of Popularity in an Age of Distraction

Dan Chaon
“I never understood why people from the 1980s thought there would be flying cars. It just seemed really dangerous and impractical to me, but they all talked about it, so it must have been a thing. Meanwhile, my dream for the future was that it wouldn't involve mass extinction and large-scale water shortages and cannibalism.”
Dan Chaon, Ill Will

“Nanotechnology promises many advances in the field of kinky sex enhancement compared with the present. Nanobots will replace surgery as the preferred method of modifying the appearance and function of the human body, allowing tissue reduction, regrowth, augmentation, and reshaping.”
JR Scott, Tales of High-Tech Female Dominance Volume II: Nanobots

Nanette L. Avery
“Rainbows are yesterday's storm...”
Nanette L. Avery

Eraldo Banovac
“What does the future look like? I don't know how to answer this question, but for the bettering of man's future, I would like for a civilization of knowledge to exist on our planet in the not too distant future.”
Eraldo Banovac

Steven A. Coulter
“By the terms of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in June of last year legalizing the practice of destitute families selling their children, hoping they’d have a better life, or of rich families taking a famous downer as a trophy to impress their friends, I have no legal status if granted freedom. I would be “a non-person and vulnerable as a piece of furniture abandoned on a sidewalk,” as Justice William O. Washington said in his blistering dissent when the court announced its decision.

Spartak Jones, 16, the first legal slave since the Civil War
America’s top gymnast, handsome, poor, kidnapped and sold, contemplating his future
San Francisco in the year 2115
The Chronicles of Spartak—Rising Son, a novel”
Steven A. Coulter, Rising Son

Abhijit Naskar
“Everything in your mental life proceeds in proper neurological order. If you could have sufficient insight into all the inner and outer parts of your mental life, along with remembrance and intelligence enough to consider all the circumstances and take them into account, you would be a true prophet and visualize the future in the present as in a mirror.”
Abhijit Naskar, What is Mind?

“You can predict your future life, only predict not assure.”
Saad Shah

Warren Ellis
“That's the future. City-states rammed with again people huddling up against hospitals and looking up in terror for the big storm that will come and go and leave them floating facedown in thirteen feet of shit. And I can't do anything about it.”
Warren Ellis

Warren Ellis
“That's the future. City-states rammed with aging people huddling up against hospitals and looking up in terror for the big storm that will come and go and leave them floating facedown in thirteen feet of shit. And I can't do anything about it.”
Warren Ellis

Pawan Mishra
“Our future depends on stories. As the world advances, literature has the ability to ground us—in our humanness, our imaginations, and our enlightenment.”
Pawan Mishra

Yogi Berra
“Never make predictions, especially about the future.”
Yogi Berra

Gwen Mitchell
“The first thing you need to learn is that an Oracle must choose very carefully how they influence the future. Sometimes a tiny ripple in the now can cause a huge drift. The future is never set, you see, it changes with every choice we make. And changing the larger currents of Fate, even by accident, comes at a heavy price.”
Gwen Mitchell, Rain of Ash
