"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 may be that the old astrologers had the truth exactly reversed, when they believed that the stars controlled the destinies of men. The time may come when men control the destinies of stars."

"If we have learned one thing from the history of invention and discovery, it is that, in the long run - and often in the short one - the most daring prophecies seem laughably conservative."

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

"I don't believe in God but I'm very interested in her."

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

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

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

Arthur C. Clarke, 16 December 1917 – 19 March 2008
