Famous quotes containing the words planet, hotter and/or future:

    Have you not budged an inch, then? Such is the daily news. Its facts appear to float in the atmosphere.... We should wash ourselves clean of such news. Of what consequence, though our planet explode, if there is no character involved in the explosion? In health we have not the least curiosity about such events. We do not live for idle amusement. I would not run round a corner to see the world blow up.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    What hotter hours,
    Unregistered in vulgar fame, you have
    Luxuriously picked out.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The danger of the past was that men became slaves. The danger of the future is that men may become robots. True enough, robots do not rebel. But given man’s nature, robots cannot live and remain sane, they become “Golems,” they will destroy their world and themselves because they cannot stand any longer the boredom of a meaningless life.
    Erich Fromm (1900–1980)
