„The Science of Economics does not deal with true happiness nor even with well-being in material things. It deals with a strictly limited field of what is called "Economic Wealth," and if it goes outside its own boundaries it goes wrong.“

—  Hilaire Belloc, Ch. 1 : What is Wealth?

„We suffer a great deal today from the bogus certainties and precisions of the pseudo-sciences which include all the social sciences including economics.“

—  John James Cowperthwaite British colonial administrator 1915 - 2006
Context: But what I really believe is that both he and Mr Wong are innocently guilty of the twentieth century fallacy that technology can be applied to the conduct of human affairs. They cannot believe that anything can work efficiently unless it has been programmed by a computer and have lost faith in the forces of the market and the human actions and reactions that make it up. But no computer has yet been devised which will produce accurate results from a diet of opinion and emotion. We suffer a great deal today from the bogus certainties and precisions of the pseudo-sciences which include all the social sciences including economics. An article I recently read referred to the academic’s “infernal economic arithmetic which ignores human responses”. Technology is admirable on the factory floor but largely irrelevant to human affairs. March 27, 1968, page 213.

„When we inherit stolen wealth in a will, we would live under a stolen future – thereby mortgaging our future. Remember, what comes from God goes to Him. What comes from truth goes to truth. What comes from stealing goes to stealing. What comes from destruction goes to destruction.“

„Science fiction, outside of poetry, is the only literary field which has no limits, no parameters whatsoever.“

—  Theodore Sturgeon American speculative fiction writer 1918 - 1985
Context: Science fiction, outside of poetry, is the only literary field which has no limits, no parameters whatsoever. You can go not only into the future, but into that wonderful place called "other", which is simply another universe, another planet, another species. As quoted in an interview with David Duncan http://www.physics.emory.edu/~weeks/misc/duncan.html
