Asimov on Science Fiction by Isaac Asimov
“It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be...
  This, in turn, means that our statesmen, our businessmen, our everyman must take on a science fictional way of thinking.”
Isaac Asimov

“I have a friend who's an artist and has sometimes taken a view which I don't agree with very well. He'll hold up a flower and say "look how beautiful it is," and I'll agree. Then he says "I as an artist can see how beautiful this is but you as a scientist take this all apart and it becomes a dull thing," and I think that he's kind of nutty. First of all, the beauty that he sees is available to other people and to me too, I believe. Although I may not be quite as refined aesthetically as he is ... I can appreciate the beauty of a flower. At the same time, I see much more about the flower than he sees. I could imagine the cells in there, the complicated actions inside, which also have a beauty. I mean it's not just beauty at this dimension, at one centimeter; there's also beauty at smaller dimensions, the inner structure, also the processes. The fact that the colors in the flower evolved in order to attract insects to pollinate it is interesting; it means that insects can see the color. ...more Richard P. Feynman

“Redundancy—inefficient by definition—serves as the antidote to confusion.”
James Gleick, The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood

Alan Turing
“The isolated man does not develop any intellectual power. It is necessary for him to be immersed in an environment of other men, whose techniques he absorbs during the first twenty years of his life. He may then perhaps do a little research of his own and make a very few discoveries which are passed on to other men. From this point of view the search for new techniques must be regarded as carried out by the human community as a whole, rather than by individuals.”
Alan Turing

Liu Cixin
“Your lack of fear is based on your ignorance.”
Liu Cixin, The Three-Body Problem

“Curiosity lies in a hidden corner of the scientific mind.”
Eraldo Banovac

Liu Cixin
“To effectively contain a civilization’s development and disarm it across such a long span of time, there is only one way: kill its science.”
Liu Cixin, The Three-Body Problem
