For centuries we have been building a civilisation of Gold and Steel! What has it given us? Peace? Understanding? Happiness?
— Metropolis

Time travel used to be thought of as just science fiction, but Einstein's general theory of relativity allows for the possibility that we could warp space-time so much that you could go off in a rocket and return before you set out.
--Stephen Hawking

The most watched programme on the BBC, after the news, is probably 'Doctor Who.' What has happened is that science fiction has been subsumed into modern literature.

--Terry Pratchett
