Human Species Quotes
I am never interested in the individual, but in the human species and its environment.

Babies and young children are like the research and development division of the human species, and we grown-ups are production and marketing.
I think it's realistic to have hope. One can be a perverse idealist and say the easiest thing: 'I despair. The world's no good.' That's a perverse idealist. It's practical to hope, because the hope is for us to survive as a human species. That's very realistic.
In the entire history of the human species, every tool we've invented has been to expand muscle power. All except one. The integrated circuit, the computer. That lets us use our brain power.

Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
It struck me what we should be trying to do was pluck the egg from the ovary and fertilise it in the laboratory. We could do this in animals increasingly... this was the way to go in the human species.
The human species was not born into a market economy. Bees won't sell you honey if you offer them an electronic funds transfer. The human species imagined money into existence, and it exists - for us, not mice or wasps - because we go on believing in it.
I absolutely don't think a sentient artificial intelligence is going to wage war against the human species.
Daniel H. Wilson
