Here are some quotes from fiction books.
Perfection is reached, not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away. (Antoine de Saint-Exupery)
When a place gets crowded enough to require ID's, social collapse is not far away. It is time to go elsewhere. The best thing about space travel is that it made it possible to go elsewhere. (Robert Heinlein)
Since survival is the sine qua non, I now define the "moral behavior" as "behavior that tends toward survival". (Robert Heinlein)
The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not "Eureka!" (I found it!) but "That's funny ...". (Isaac Asimov)
