Future Quotes

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them

Thomas Jefferson

A revolution is a struggle to the death between the future and the past.

Fidel Castro

It shews the anxiety of the great men who influenced the conduct of affairs at that great event, to make the Revolution a parent of settlement, and not a nursery of future revolutions.

Edmund Burke

Make revolution a parent of settlement, and not a nursery of future revolutions.

Edmund Burke

Thus science may implement the ways in which man produces, stores, and consults the record of the race. It might be striking to outline the instrumentalities of the future more spectacularly, rather than to stick closely to the methods and elements now known and undergoing rapid development, as has been done here. Technical difficulties of all sorts have been ignored, certainly, but also ignored are means as yet unknown which may come any day to accelerate technical progress as violently as did the advent of the thermionic tube.

Vannevar Bush

The source of anxiety lies in the future. If you can keep the future out of mind, you can forget your worries.

Milan Kundera

We're in a freefall into future. We don't know where we're going. Things are changing so fast, and always when you're going through a long tunnel, anxiety comes along. And all you have to do to transform your hell into a paradise is to turn your fall into a voluntary act. It's a very interesting shift of perspective and that's all it is... joyful participation in the sorrows and everything changes.

Joseph Campbell

We can pay our debts to the past by putting the future in debt to ourselves.

John Buchan, 1st Baron Tweedsmuir

I write about violence as naturally as Jane Austen wrote about manners. Violence shapes and obsesses our society, and if we do not stop being violent we have no future. People who do not want writers to write about violence want to stop them writing about us and our time. It would be immoral not to write about violence.

Edward Bond

The formula for prison is a lack of space counterbalanced by a surplus of time. This is what really bothers you, that you can't win. Prison is lack of alternatives, and the telescopic predictability of the future is what drives you crazy.

Iosip Aleksandrovich Brodsky

The illiterate of the future are not those that cannot read or write. They are those that can not learn, unlearn, relearn.

Alvin Toffler

There was always a minority afraid of something, and a great majority afraid of the dark, afraid of the future, afraid of the past, afraid of the present, afraid of themselves and shadows of themselves.

Ray Douglas Bradbury

People ask me to predict the future, when all I want to do is prevent it. Better yet, build it. Predicting the future is much too easy, anyway. You look at the people around you, the street you stand on, the visible air you breathe, and predict more of the same. To hell with more. I want better.

Ray Douglas Bradbury

There is no future for e-books, because they are not books. E-books smell like burned fuel.

Ray Douglas Bradbury

Accept fate, and move on. Don't yield to the seductive pull of self-pity. Acting like a victim threatens your future.

Unknown

Without free speech no search for Truth is possible; without free speech no discovery of Truth is useful; without free speech progress is checked, and the nations no longer march forward towards the nobler life which the future holds for man. Better a thousandfold abuse of free speech than denial of free speech. The abuse dies in a day; the denial slays the life of the people and entombs the hope of the race.

Charles Bradlaugh

Money talks: financing the periphery buys Berlin a leading role recasting the eurozone governance framework. The recent six pack of legislative reforms hints at whats to come: institutionalized fiscal discipline and an excessive imbalances procedure that protects against future moral hazard. The whole eurozone will tilt toward the German surplus model as we get more fiscal integration and more German leverage.

Ian Bremmer

The impact of space activities is nothing less than the galvanizing of hope and imagination for human life continuum into a future of infinite possibility.

Vanna Bonta

The Macedonians are a newly emergent people in search of a past to help legitimize their precarious present as they attempt to establish their singular identity in a Slavic world dominated historically by Serbs and Bulgarians. One need understand only a single geopolitical fact: As one measures conflicting Serb and Bulgarian claims over the past nine centuries, they intersect in Macedonia. Macedonia is where the historical Serb thrust to the south and the historical thrust to the west meet. This is not to say that present Serb and Bulgarian ambitions, where the past has precedence over the present and future.

Eugene N. Borza

An expectation is a future object, recognised as belonging to me.

Samuel Alexander

We need to give the Iraqis a chance to build their own future. It should be in their hands. It must be in their hands. That is what democracy is all about. We can teach it, we can explain it, but they must want it enough to make it work for them.

Barbara Levy Boxer

Philosophers, for the most part, are constitutionally timid, and dislike the unexpected. Few of them would be genuinely happy as pirates or burglars. Accordingly they invent systems which make the future calculable, at least in its main outlines

Bertrand Russell

I would not think that philosophy and reason themselves will be man's guide in the foreseeable future; however, they will remain the most beautiful sanctuary they have always been for the select few

Albert Einstein
