Stanislav Lem

Stanislav Lem

Polish writer, philosopher, writer, futurist, one of the classics of modern fiction
Of the two powers, the two categories that take possession of us when we enter the world, space is by far the less mysterious. . . . Space is, after all, solid, monolithic. . . . Time, on the other hand, is a hostile element, truly treacherous, I would say even against human nature.More Stanislav Lem quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I had no hope. Yet expectation lived on in me, the last thing she had left behind. What further consummations, mockeries, torments did I still anticipate? I had no idea as I abided in the unshaken belief that the time of cruel wonders was not yet over.More Stanislav Lem quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Faith is, at one and the same time, absolutely necessary and altogether impossible.More Stanislav Lem quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Art gives man a reminder that he is not just a consumer but a creator as well. It awakens in him the urge to struggle and perform great deeds; it fills him with the craving to pass on the Promethean fire to generations to come.More Stanislav Lem quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Solaristics, wrote Muntius, is a substitute for religion in the space age. It is faith wrapped in the cloak of science; contact, the goal for which we are striving, is as vague and obscure as communion with the saints or the coming of the Messiah.More Stanislav Lem quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
