Genetic Engineering Quotes

We are driven by five genetic needs: survival, love and belonging, power, freedom, and fun.

William Glasser

Unless mankind redesigns itself by changing our DNA through altering our genetic makeup, computer-generated robots will take over our world.

Stephen Hawking

A disquieting era of genetic manipulation is coming, one that may revolutionize human capacities, and notions of health. If we treat moral scruples impatiently, as inherently retrograde in a scientifically advancing civilization, we will not be in moral trim when, soon, our very humanity depends on our being in trim.

George F. Will

Humans have long since possessed the tools for crafting a better world. Where love, compassion, altruism and justice have failed, genetic manipulation will not succeed.

GINA MARANTO

Two years ago we thought genetically engineered foods would be the next big thing. Now even biotech companies are beginning to wonder if consumers will accept these foods.

Clare Hasler

The goal of NIH research is to acquire new knowledge to help prevent, detect, diagnose, and treat disease and disability, from the rarest genetic disorder to the common cold.

Ike Skelton

There is no plant that is unimportant. The genetic information contained in the germ plasma of each species is unique and cannot be reproduced once the last living tissue is gone.

Edward Ayensu†

I don't think I was constructed to be monogamous. I don't think it's the nature of any man to be monogamous. Men are propelled by genetically ordained impulses over which they have no control to distribute their seed.

Marlon Brando

We are driven by five genetic needs: survival, love and belonging, power, freedom, and fun.

William Glasser

Geneticists believe that anthropologists have decided what a race is. Ethnologists assume that their classifications embody principles which genetic science has proved correct. Politicians believe that their prejudices have the sanction of genetic laws and the findings of physical anthropology to sustain them.

We are driven by five genetic needs: survival, love and belonging, power, freedom, and fun.

William Glasser

You are the descendant of a tiny cell of primordial protoplasm washed up on an empty beach three and a half billion years ago. You are the blind and arbitrary product of time, chance, and natural forces. You are a mere grab-bag of atomic particles, a conglomeration of genetic substance. You exist on a tiny planet in a minute solar system in an empty corner of a universe. You are a purely biological entity, different only in degree but not in kind from a microbe, virus, or amoeba. You have no essence beyond your body, and at death you will cease to exist entirely. In short you come from nothing and are going to nowhere.

Alcorn, Randy

I learned to understand their language and to speak it a little. Immediately the news spread throughout the kingdom that two little wild men had been discovered. We were smaller than everybody else because the wilderness had provided us with such bad food. And it was a genetic defect that caused us to have forelimbs that weren't strong enough to support us. This belief gained strength through repetition despite the priests of the country. They opposed it, saying that it was an awful impiety to believe that not only animals but monsters might be of the same species as they.

Cyrano Hercule Savinien de Bergerac

There are lots of threats to you in the world. There's the threat of a heart attack for genetic reasons. You can't sit there and worry about everything. Get a life.

Michael Bloomberg
