Quotes to live by on National Science Fiction Day

"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's evidence for it. The wilder and more ridiculous something is. However, the firmer and more solid the evidence will have to be."- Isaac Asimov

"I think that Science Fiction, even the corniest of it, even the most outlandish of it, no matter how badly it is written, has a distinct therapeutic value because all of it has its primary postulate: That the world does change. I cannot overemphasize the importance of that idea." –Robert Heinlein
