We never had books at home, but my dad, seeing how keen I was to read, took me to Islington Library when I was about eight and we pulled out two - a Biggles and a science fiction novel. I never got the ace fighter pilot but fell in love with all things to do with the future and space. Isaac Asimov soon became my guiding star.

10 QUOTES WITH «ISAAC»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word Isaac.
1
Rodney Brooks
HAL 9000 in '2001' was an early inspiration which came along when I was first trying to build intelligent machines as a boy and young teenager. Isaac Asimov's robots were more fodder for my imagination. Commander Data from 'Star Trek Generations' is the fictional pinnacle of such developments, and so of course it is an ongoing inspiration.
2
Paul Davies
The birth of science as we know it arguably began with Isaac Newton's formulation of the laws of gravitation and motion. It is no exaggeration to say that physics was reborn in the early 20th-century with the twin revolutions of quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity.
3
Cory Doctorow
The other one I did was 'I, Robot.' I take apart Isaac Asimov's Robots world.

Isaac Singer always wrote in Yiddish. He was so unsure of his English at the beginning that he was easy to edit and he learned fast.
5
Louie Gohmert
No country has ever fallen while it was truly honoring the god of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
6
Isaac Hayes
All the time I was writing hit songs with my partner David Porter, I always had the yen to perform. Sure did. And when the opportunity came, I took it. The first album, 'Presenting Isaac Hayes,' didn't do so hot, but it was like a prelude for what was to come.

Robert Kazinsky
I've read everything that Isaac Asimov ever wrote, for a start. I'm massively into my fantasy genre, anything by R.A. Salvatore or David Gemmell. I've read every single book those writers have written.
8
Jonathan Kellerman
That's what's so great about my job. I get paid to do what got me in trouble in grade school space out and play with my imaginary friends. In terms of Isaac, when the time's right.
