- (1) ‘It’s crazy – don’t waste my time.’
- (2) ‘It’s possible, but it’s not worth doing.’

* He was talking about space exploration, but it can be applied to any revolutionary new idea. Oh, and his quote is adapted from an original thought by Shopenhauer, which itself was adapted by philosopher William James, but I think Clarke said it the best.
