He didn't believe that, surely." "Of course not! But he had to pretend he did, as otherwise he would have had no choice but to be insulted. And since there would be nothing he could do about that, being insulted would only lead to humiliation. And since he didn't want that, the simplest path to follow was to believe what I said. ~ Isaac Asimov
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Asimov
Many of these ideas you like - wouldn't they scare most people? Its all very Isaac Asimov. I've thought about how to implement this. Speaking for myself, I never want to go to the dentist, I never want to go to the various doctors. So if someone told me to implant something in my body, as a futurist, I'd be down, but as a citizen I would think it is annoying. ~ Anonymous
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Anonymous
Newtonian physics runs into problems at the subatomic level. Down there--in the land of hadrons, quarks, and Schrödinger's cat--things gent freaky. The cool rationality of Isaac Newton gives way to the bizarre unpredictability of Lewis Carroll. ~ Daniel H. Pink
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Daniel H. Pink
Writing is my only interest. Even speaking is an interruption. ~ Isaac Asimov
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Asimov
Isaac Singer was born in Poland and doesn't write in English. Still, he's an American. ~ Irwin Shaw
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Irwin Shaw
That even the most casual of compliments can be given that extra little touch that women adore. ~ Isaac Asimov
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Asimov
The plea for ethical veganism, which rejects the treatment of birds and other animals as a food source or other commodity, is sometimes mistaken as a plea for dietary purity and elitism, as if formalistic food exercises and barren piety were the point of the desire to get the slaughterhouse out of one's kitchen and one's system. Abstractions such as 'vegetarianism' and 'veganism' mask the experiential and philosophical roots of a plant-based diet. They make the realities of 'food' animal production and consumption seem abstract and trivial, mere matters of ideological preference and consequence, or of individual taste, like selecting a shirt, or hair color.

However, the decision that has led millions of people to stop eating other animals is not rooted in arid adherence to diet or dogma, but in the desire to eliminate the kinds of experiences that using animals for food confers upon beings with feelings. The philosophic vegetarian believes with Isaac Bashevis Singer that even if God or Nature sides with the killers, one is obliged to protest. The human commitment to harmony, justice, peace, and love is ironic as long as we continue to support the suffering and shame of the slaughterhouse and its satellite operations.

Vegetarians do not eat animals, but, according to the traditional use of the term, they may choose to consume dairy products and eggs, in which case they are called lacto-ovo (milk and egg) vegetarians. In reality, the distinction between me ~ Karen Davis
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Karen Davis
We are gaining the knowledge; science is giving us that. Now we need wisdom as well. ~ Isaac Asimov
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Asimov
If I have done great things it's because I was standing in the closet of smart men taking notes and then publishing their ideas as my own. ~ Isaac Newton
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Newton
We may be old, boys, but we're not dead."
"I will murder you if you ever, ever imply that my mother has sex ever again," Isaac mutters as he cringes. ~ Kristen Proby
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Kristen Proby
Life only makes any sense if we can see time how God does. Past, present, and future all at once. ~ Isaac Marion
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Marion
Are not rays of light very small bodies emitted from shining substances? ~ Isaac Newton
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Newton
If I am anything, which I highly doubt, I have made myself so by hard work. ~ Isaac Newton
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Newton
Julie swears better than anyone I've known. She can draw from a vast vocabulary of filth and weave complex structures of inventive invective, or she can say what she needs to say using only variations of "fuck." She is a poet of profanity, and I suppress an instinct to applaud as she stomps around the room, squeezing her hand and spewing colourful couplets. ~ Isaac Marion
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Marion
Max Minghella is a very close friend of mine, and I talk to him regularly. ~ Oscar Isaac
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Oscar Isaac
That is, he made boasts. But boasts are wind and deeds are hard. ~ Isaac Asimov
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Asimov
Far from being the crown of human thought and religion as its supporters have claimed for several bloody millennia, [monotheism] is in fact a monstrous step backwards
a step that has been responsible for more human misery than any other idea in known history. ~ Isaac Bonewits
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Bonewits
The intoxication with the theatre, with its limelight, costumes, and masks, and with its passions and conflicts, accords well with the adolescence of a man who was to act his role with an intense sense of the dramatic, and of whose life it might indeed be said that its very shape had the power and pattern of classical tragedy. ~ Isaac Deutscher
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Deutscher
To him, a stilted geometric love of arrangement was "system," and indefatigable and feverish interest in the pettiest facets of day-to-day bureaucracy was "industry", indecision when right was "caution", and blind stubbornness when wrong, "determination. ~ Isaac Asimov
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Asimov
In my field, you can't really wear the same dress twice unless you want Isaac Mizrahi to scorn you on TV. ~ Mary Lambert
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Mary Lambert
For a wise man, I have been told, once said, 'Gratitude is best and most effective when it does not evaporate in empty phrases.' But alas, my lady, I am but a mass of empty phrases, it would seem. ~ Isaac Asimov
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Asimov
What's the good of not believing? Today it's your wife you don't believe; tomorrow it's God Himself you won't take stock in. ~ Isaac Bashevis Singer
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Bashevis Singer
Fidelity and allegiance sworn to the King is only such a fidelity and obedience as is due to him by the law of the land; for were that faith and allegiance more than what the law requires, we would swear ourselves slaves and the King absolute; whereas, by the law, we are free men, notwithstanding those oaths. ~ Isaac Newton
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Newton
Because, if you stop to think of it, the three Rules of Robotics are the essential guiding principles of a good many of the world's ethical systems. Of course, every human being is supposed to have the instinct of self-preservation. That's Rule Three to a robot. Also every 'good' human being, with a social conscience and a sense of responsibility, is supposed to defer to proper authority; to listen to his doctor, his boss, his government, his psychiatrist, his fellow man; to obey laws, to follow rules, to conform to custom - even when they interfere with his comfort or his safety. That's Rule Two to a robot. Also, every 'good' human being is supposed to love others as himself, protect his fellow man, risk his life to save another. That's Rule One to a robot. To put it simply - if Byerley follows all the Rules of Robotics, he may be a robot, and may simply be a very good man. ~ Isaac Asimov
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Asimov
From borrowing one gets poorer and from work one gets richer. ~ Isaac Bashevis Singer
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Bashevis Singer
One might accept death reasoningly, with every aspect of the conscious mind, but the body was a brute beast that knew nothing of reason. ~ Isaac Asimov
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Asimov
I really want to be a villain. ~ Isaac Hempstead-Wright
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Hempstead-Wright
It is enough for a Psychohistorian, as such, to know his Biostatistics and his Neurochemical Electromathematics. Some know nothing else and are fit only to be statistical technicians. But a Speaker must be able to discuss the Plan without mathematics. ~ Isaac Asimov
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Asimov
(Refresher course I just completed twenty minutes ago: In the Koran, it is Ismail, Abraham's elder son by Sarah's maidservant Hagar, whom Sarah gave to Abraham as concubine to bear them a child, that Abraham takes up the mountain with plans to sacrifice. In the Old Testament it's Isaac, Abraham's younger son by Sarah herself, Abraham takes up the mountain. In this version Sarah sees Ismail playing with Isaac long before the trip up the mountain, becomes jealous about her own son's inheritance - even though the whole Hagar-Abraham thing was her idea to begin with - and forces Abraham to send Hagar and Ismail away.) ~ Claire Sydenham
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Claire Sydenham
Strength of this affection. And it is not hard to understand. The baby represented everything sacred to his father's heart: the promises of God, the covenants, the hopes of the years and the long messianic dream. As he watched him grow from babyhood to young manhood the heart of the old man was knit closer and closer with the life of his son, till at last the relationship bordered upon the perilous. It was then that God stepped in to save both father and son from the consequences of an uncleansed love. "Take now thy son," said God to Abraham, "thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt-offering upon one of the mountains which I will ~ A.W. Tozer
Yacouba Isaac quotes by A.W. Tozer
I have presented principles of philosophy that are not, however, philosophical but strictly mathematical-that is, those on which the study of philosophy can be based. These principles are the laws and conditions of motions and of forces, which especially relate to philosophy. ~ Isaac Newton
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Newton
Riose laughed suddenly. He foresaw that? Then he foresaw wrong, my good scientist. I suppose you call yourself that. Why, the Empire is more powerful now than it has been in a millennium. Your old eyes are blinded by the cold bleakness of the border. Come to the inner worlds some day; come to the warmth and the wealth of the center. ~ Isaac Asimov
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Asimov
When general observations are drawn from so many particulars as to become certain and indisputable, these are jewels of knowledge. ~ Isaac Watts
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Watts
To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. Tis much better to do a little with certainty & leave the rest for others that come after than to explain all things by conjecture without making sure of any thing. ~ Isaac Newton
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Newton
A good watch may serve to keep a recconing at Sea for some days and to know the time of a Celestial Observ[at]ion: and for this end a good Jewel watch may suffice till a better sort of Watch can be found out. But when the Longitude at sea is once lost, it cannot be found again by any watch. ~ Isaac Newton
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Newton
It is a difficult choice sometimes whether to feel revolted at the male sex or merely to dismiss them as contemptible. ~ Isaac Asimov
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Asimov
Stop shrugging, shrugger. ~ Isaac Marion
Yacouba Isaac quotes by Isaac Marion
As for me, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are now only the subtlest imaginable essences, which would not stain the morning sky. ~ Henry David Thoreau
