A Quote by Arthur C. Clarke on impossibility, limits, and past

But the only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.

A Quote by Arthur C. Clarke on college, elderly, good, impossibility, justice, mathematics, meetings, physics, and scientists

When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong. Perhaps the adjective 'elderly' requires definition. In physics, mathematics, and astronautics it means over thirty; in the other disciplines, senile decay is sometimes postponed to the forties. There are, of course, glorious exceptions; but as every researcher just out of college knows, scientists of over fifty are good for nothing but board meetings, and should at all costs be kept out of the laboratory!

A Quote by Arthur C. Clarke on ideas and universe

Sometimes I think we're alone in the universe, and sometimes I think we're not. In either case the idea is quite staggering.
