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

    The planet on which we live is poorly organized, many areas are overpopulated, others are reserved for a few, technology’s potential is only in part realized, and most people are starving.
    Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921–1990)

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

    For me chemistry represented an indefinite cloud of future potentialities which enveloped my life to come in black volutes torn by fiery flashes, like those which had hidden Mount Sinai. Like Moses, from that cloud I expected my law, the principle of order in me, around me, and in the world.... I would watch the buds swell in spring, the mica glint in the granite, my own hands, and I would say to myself: “I will understand this, too, I will understand everything.”
    Primo Levi (1919–1987)
