Quotes about the Future

Updated on May 11, 2011

Future Human

Upon arriving at my 90th hub I have decided I would talk about something which everyone shares in common, where are we headed as the human race? how will we get there? and I too am starting to ponder the possibilities for my writing once I cross the 100th hub mark.

I have returned to my 'Quote' articles as of recent and this is because I have found a new method for choosing the most popular topics and I also wanted to rest from more in depth hubs such as the New York one which took me two consecutive evenings to complete.

I will not delay any longer I just wanted to make a brief introduction before introducing some of the admiral and inspiring quotes:

  • The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time. - Abraham Lincoln
  • In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes. - Andy Warhol
  • The future is here. It's just not widely distributed yet. - William Gibson
  • I have seen the future and it is very much like the present - only longer. - Kehlog Albran
