Arthur C. Clarke

Arthur C. Clarke Motivational Quotations:

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

  • “Every revolutionary idea seems to evoke three stages of reaction. They may be summed up by the phrases: 1- It's completely impossible. 2- It's possible, but it's not worth doing. 3- I said it was a good idea all along.”

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

  • “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

  • “The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible.”

  •  “It has yet to be proven that intelligence has any survival value.”

  •  “The greatest tragedy in mankind's entire history may be the hijacking of morality by religion.”

    Arthur C. Clarke


  • “The best measure of a man's honesty isn't his income tax return. It's the zero adjust on his bathroom scale.”

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

  •  “New ideas pass through three periods: 1) It can't be done. 2) It probably can be done, but it's not worth doing. 3) I knew it was a good idea all along!”

  •  “Sometimes I think we're alone in the universe, and sometimes I think we're not. In either case the idea is quite staggering.”

  •  “There is hopeful symbolism in the fact that flags do not wave in a vacuum.”

  •  “It is not easy to see how the more extreme forms of nationalism can long survive when men have seen the Earth in its true perspective as a single small globe against the stars.”

  •  “We have to abandon the idea that schooling is something restricted to youth. How can it be, in a world where half the things a man knows at 20 are no longer true at 40 - and half the things he knows at 40 hadn't been discovered when he was 20?”

  •  “When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.”

Arthur C. Clarke

  •  “Perhaps, as some wit remarked, the best proof that there is Intelligent Life in Outer Space is the fact it hasn't come here. Well, it can't hide forever - one day we will overhear it.”
  •  “Our lifetime may be the last that will be lived out in a technological society.”

  •  “I don't pretend we have all the answers. But the questions are certainly worth thinking about.”

  •  “Reading computer manuals without the hardware is as frustrating as reading sex manuals without the software.”

  •  “I don't believe in God but I'm very interested in her.”

  •  “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.”

  •  “If an elderly but distinguished scientist says that something is possible, he is almost certainly right; but if he says that it is impossible, he is very probably wrong.”

  •  “It may be that our role on this planet is not to worship God - but to create him.”

  •  “I have a fantasy where Ted Turner is elected President but refuses because he doesn't want to give up power.”

  •  “Human judges can show mercy. But against the laws of nature, there is no appeal.”

  •  “The intelligent minority of this world will mark 1 January 2001 as the real beginning of the 21st century and the Third Millennium.”

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