[Quote No.24558] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"I received the fundamentals of my education in school, but that was not enough. My real education, the superstructure, the details, the true architecture, I got out of the public library. For an impoverished child whose family could not afford to buy books, the library was the open door to wonder and achievement, and I can never be sufficiently grateful that I had the wit to charge through that door and make the most of it." - Isaac Asimov

"[Be sceptical:] I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement, and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers. I'll believe anything, no matter how wild and ridiculous, if there is evidence for it. The wilder and more ridiculous something is, however, the firmer and more solid the evidence will have to be." - Isaac Asimov

[Quote No.49467] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"Science doesn't purvey absolute truth. Science is a mechanism, a way of trying to improve your knowledge of nature. It's a system for testing your thoughts against the universe and seeing whether they match. This works not just for the ordinary aspects of science, but for all of life." - Isaac Asimov

[Quote No.57548] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"To learn is to broaden, to experience more, to snatch new aspects of life for yourself. To refuse to learn or to be relieved at not having to learn is to commit a form of suicide [potential denying, growth stopping, 'better self' destroying]... Knowledge is not only power; it is happiness..." - Isaac Asimov
American author and professor of biochemistry at Boston University. Quoted in the book, ‘Isaac Asimov: It’s Been a Good Life’, published 2002 and edited by Janet Jeppson Asimov, p. 165.

[Quote No.57549] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"[The value of questioning and skepticism:] ...It is another example of the value of routine doubting. My thesis, in case you've forgotten, is not doubt-for-doubt's-sake, but doubt as a necessary barrier which the valid can overcome and the nonvalid cannot. The more a finding seems to destroy the basis of the scientific structure, the higher the barrier of doubt. Of course one must remember that 'doubt' is not synonymous with 'refusal to listen'." - Isaac Asimov
American author and professor of biochemistry at Boston University. Quoted in the book, ‘Isaac Asimov: It’s Been a Good Life’, published 2002 and edited by Janet Jeppson Asimov, p. 263.

"...I sometimes think my articles are a vast scheme of self-education. It works, too. There is nothing like writing an article on a subject for forcing yourself to think that subject through clearly. ...it is absolute truth that I have never written a book that didn't teach me far more than it taught any reader." - Isaac Asimov
American author and professor of biochemistry at Boston University. Quoted in the book, ‘Isaac Asimov: It’s Been a Good Life’, published 2002 and edited by Janet Jeppson Asimov, p. 266 and 273.

[Quote No.69086] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"How often people speak of art and science as though they were two entirely different things, with no interconnection. An artist is emotional, they think, and uses only his intuition; he sees all at once and has no need of reason. A scientist is cold, they think, and uses only his reason; he argues carefully step by step, and needs no imagination. That is all wrong. The true artist is quite rational as well as imaginative and knows what he is doing; if he does not, his art suffers. The true scientist is quite imaginative as well as rational, and sometimes leaps to solutions where reason can follow only slowly; if he does not, his science suffers." - Isaac Asimov

[Quote No.57553] Need Area: Money > General
"[While their is value in doubt and skepticism, it can be taken so far as to become unhelpful and maladaptive. For example, in general, for your happiness as well as others, give people the benefit of the doubt, as the law says, ‘innocent until proven guilty’, while not forgetting the equally legally valid, especially in business and money situations, 'caveat emptor' - 'buyer beware' - and 'the devil is in the details'. Be rationally optimistic and progressively more trusting with each person, until experience proves them untrustworthy:] To me it seems to be important to believe people to be good even if they tend to be bad, because your own joy and happiness in life is increased that way, and the pleasures of the belief outweigh the occasional disappointments. To be a cynic about people works just the other way around and makes you incapable of enjoying the good things." - Isaac Asimov
American author and professor of biochemistry at Boston University. Quoted in the book, ‘Isaac Asimov: It’s Been a Good Life’, published 2002 and edited by Janet Jeppson Asimov, p. 159.

[Quote No.49468] Need Area: Fun > Books
"In serious fiction, fiction where the writer feels he's accomplishing something besides simply amusing people – although there's nothing wrong with simply amusing people – the writer is holding up a mirror to the human species, making it possible for you to understand people better because you've read the novel or story, and maybe making it possible for you to understand yourself better. That's an important thing. Now science fiction uses a different method. It works up an artificial society, one which doesn't exist, or one that may possibly exist in the future, but not necessarily. And it portrays events against the background of this society in the hope that you will be able to see yourself in relation to the present society... That's why I write science fiction – because it's a way of writing fiction in a style that enables me to make points I can't make otherwise. " - Isaac Asimov
