Author: Alain De Botton

Author: Ann Rule

5. "True science is never speculative; it employs hypotheses as suggesting points for inquiry, but it never adopts the hypotheses as though they were demonstrated propositions."
Author: Cleveland Abbe
6. "Libraries are the future of reading. When the economy is down, we need to make it easier for people to buy and read books for free, not harder.

Author: Courtney Milan
7. "And I realize I've been betrayed by the two vices that fiction promised me I'd adore. Sal Paradise held up bottles of booze like a housewife in a detergent commercial.

Author: Craig Silvey
8. "My mother neither encouraged the reading of science fiction nor did she disparage it. She told me later that there was a scheme of things. Young people were first drawn to fiction, but as they grew older they were pulled more and more into nonfiction and biography, because nonfiction is so much more tragic, engrossing, and hilarious than anything else that could be invented. In this grand scheme, comic books and science fiction were just fine. They filled the need for a certain amount of time, and you moved on when that need was no longer filled."
Author: Don Borchert
9. "There is divine beauty in learning... To learn means to accept the postulate that life did not begin at my birth. Others have been here before me, and I walk in their footsteps. The books I have read were composed by generations of fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, teachers and disciples. I am the sum total of their experiences, their quests. And so are you."
Author: Elie Wiesel
10. "We never had books at home, but my dad, seeing how keen I was to read, took me to Islington Library when I was about eight and we pulled out two - a Biggles and a science fiction novel. I never got the ace fighter pilot but fell in love with all things to do with the future and space. Isaac Asimov soon became my guiding star."
Author: Gary Kemp
11. "Books make me feel safe. Books make me feel normal."
Author: Gary Paulsen
12. "A lot of comic conventions go way beyond comic books and include other parts of pop culture, like celebrities and science fiction and movies and books. So I go to them either as a celebrity, or as a fan, because I'm a big sci-fi geek."
Author: Jane Wiedlin
13. "In the end it comes down to two rival versions of the English middle afternoon. Post-Barrett, Pink Floyd kept on in a middle-afternoonish vein, but they fell in love with the idea of portentous storm clouds in the offing somewhere over Grantchester....Barrett's afternoonishness was far more supple and engaging. It superimposed the hippie cult of eternal solstice on the pre-teatime daydreams of one's childhood, occasioned by a slick of sunlight on a chest of drawers....His afternoonishness is lit by an importunate adult intelligence that can't quite get back to the place it longs to be....Barrett created the same precocious longing in adolescents."I remember 'See Emily Play' drifting across a school corridor in 1967...and I remember the powerful wish to stay suspended indefinitely in that music...I also remember the quasi-adult intimation that this wasn't possible.[from the London Review of Books for January 2, 2003]"
Author: Jeremy Harding
14. "De Verenigde Naties vatten de milieueffecten van de vleesindustrie als volgt samen: Het fokken van dieren voor de voedselproductie (ongeacht of dat in de bio-industrie of op traditionele wijze gebeurt) 'is een van de drie belangrijkste oorzaken van de meest bedreigende milieuproblemen, op elke schaal, lokaal of wereldwijd. De veeteelt zou een van de belangrijkste aandachtspunten moeten zijn als het gaat om problemen als verschraling, klimaatverandering, luchtvervuiling, watertekorten, watervervuiling en afnemende biodiversiteit. Het aandeel van de veeteelt in de milieuproblematiek is zeer aanzienlijk." Met andere woorden, als je om het milieu geeft en de wetenschappelijke resultaten van bronnen als de VN onderschrijft (of de Intergouvernementele Comissie voor Klimaatverandering, of het Center For Science in the Public Interest, de PEW-commissie, de Union of Concerned Scientists of het World-Watch Instituut,...), dan móet het eten van dieren je aan het hart gaan."
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
15. "Oh god, Anabeth," Ellie muttered. "Your whole life is based around sex." "So?" she shot back. "It's better than having sex with fictional characters!" Ellie shot up out of my desk chair. "I do not have sex with fictional characters!" "Oh puh-lease, I've seen the books you read, all big muscley men and virginal women and steamy sex. Why else would you read that crap if not to get off?"
Author: Madeline Sheehan
16. "I read very, very little fiction as a kid. All the books I can remember are junior science books."
Author: Mark Haddon
17. "Given the power and influence that science increasingly has in our daily lives, it is important that we as citizens of an open and democratic society learn to separate good science from bunk. This is not just a matter of intellectual curiosity, as it affects where large portions of our tax money go, and in some cases even whether people's lives are lost as a result of nonsense."
Author: Massimo Pigliucci
18. "I cannot choose one hundred best books because I have only written five"
Author: Oscar Wilde
19. "Read good books. Read bad books - and figure out why you don't like them. Then don't do it when you write. If you are a science fiction or fantasy writer, going to conventions and attending panels is very useful."
Author: Patricia Briggs
20. "Theory in any branch of science entails a risk of detachment from reality"
Author: Quammen, David
21. "Every fact of science was once damned. Every invention was considered impossible. Every discovery was a nervous shock to some orthodoxy. Every artistic innovation was denounced as fraud and folly. The entire web of culture and ‘progress,' everything on earth that is man-made and not given to us by nature, is the concrete manifestation of some man's refusal to bow to Authority. We would own no more, know no more, and be no more than the first apelike hominids if it were not for the rebellious, the recalcitrant, and the intransigent. As Oscar Wilde truly said, ‘Disobedience was man's Original Virtue."
Author: Robert Anton Wilson
22. "Every day, I read books on philosophy and science fiction and human consciousness."
Author: Tom DeLonge
23. "Non-fiction can distort; facts can be realigned. But fiction never lies."
Author: V.S. Naipaul
24. "There is no science without fancy and no art without fact."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
25. "Revere those things beyond science which really matter and about which it is so difficult to speak."
Author: Werner Heisenberg
