Quotes | By

The following are quotes by Clarke:

“What is ‘life’ but organized energy.”
— Arthur Clarke (1958), “Out of the Sun” [2]
“One of the greatest tragedies of mankind is that morality has been hijacked by religion. So now people assume that religion and morality have a necessary connection. But the basis of morality is really very simple and doesn't require religion at all. It's this: ‘don't do unto anybody else what you wouldn't want to be done to you’. It seems to me that that's all there is to it.”
— Arthur Clarke (1999), “God, Science, and Delusion” [3]
