I am now seventy, rather glad, really, that I won't live to see the horrors to come in the 21st century.

Anne Stevenson

We have entered an age in which education is not just a luxury permitting some men an advantage over others. It has become a necessity without which a person is defenseless in this complex, industrialized society. We have truly entered the century of the educated man.

Lyndon B. Johnson

The nineteenth century believed in science but the twentieth century does not.

Gertrude Stein

Solidarity was the best thing which happened in the 20th century.

Mikhail Saakashvili

John Dalton's records, carefully preserved for a century, were destroyed during the World War II bombing of Manchester. It is not only the living who are killed in war.

The 20th Century was the century of Aviation and the century of Globalization. The next century will be the century of Space.

Wilson Greatbatch

Green technologies - going green - is bigger than the Internet. It could be the biggest economic opportunity of the 21st century.

John Doerr

Lawrence Summers

We wouldn't think of going to our doctor and saying 'Treat me the way doctors treated people in the 19th Century', and yet that's what we're demanding in food production.

Nina Fedoroff

We don't realize how hard it was to drive anywhere outside the major cities less than a century ago.

Ken Jennings

Words have great cumulative power, but in the 21st century, a single image is much stronger. An image suggests the unvarnished truth. That is its power and its fiction.

Alexandra Kerry

In the past week it has become clear that the vote on the final healthcare bill will be very close. I take this vote with the utmost seriousness. I am quite aware of the historic fight that has lasted the better part of the last century to bring America in line with other modern democracies in providing single payer health care.

Dennis Kucinich

I would love to do a period piece - in the 18th or 17th century. To me, it would be such an incredible challenge because of the way people carried themselves. There are so many incredible stories within those centuries - just the language and the way they carried themselves and what they were going through.

Barack Obama

In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01. White America and the western world came to realize that people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just 'disappeared' as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring black concerns.

Jeremiah Wright

For almost a century, the Universe has been known to be expanding as a consequence of the Big Bang about 14 billion years ago. However, the discovery that this expansion is accelerating is astounding. If the expansion will continue to speed up, the Universe will end in ice.

Saul Perlmutter

The two defining issues of this century are both universal but felt locally: the global water crisis and the resources boom.

Jay Weatherill

If you stop and think about our history, one of the reasons we had an American century and there is an American dream was because at key points in our history we made very bold decisions about making sure that there was very broad, universal access to quality education.

Ken Mehlman

This is a day we have managed to avoid for a quarter of a century.

Edward Witten

The subject must be thought of in terms of the 20th century, of houses he lives in and places he works, in terms of the kind of light the windows in these places let through and by which we see him every day.

Arnold Newman

We seem to have a compulsion these days to bury time capsules in order to give those people living in the next century or so some idea of what we are like.

Genius always finds itself a century too early.

The Germanic invasions destroyed neither the Mediterranean unity of the ancient world, nor what may be regarded as the truly essential features of the Roman culture as it still existed in the 5th century, at a time when there was no longer an Emperor in the West.

Henri Pirenne

The rise of the dramas in the thirteenth century, and the rise of the great novels in a later period, together with their frank glorification of love and the joys of life, may be called the Third Renaissance.

Warren Buffett

The problem of direct colour photography has been facing us since the turn of the last century.

Gavin Bryars

The fear of life is the favorite disease of the 20th century.

William Lyon Phelps

Writing tonal music now, you are not writing into the 19th Century.

Gavin Bryars

Because the series is situated in the next century, and for the most part under water, there are many innovative technical gadgets. It's a kind of StarTrek. When I first came there, I was really impressed myself.

Jonathan Brandis

The craft of painting has virtually disappeared. There is hardly anyone left who really possesses it. For evidence one has only to look at the painters of this century.

Balthus

You all know how powerful and varied are the effects of which steam engines are capable; with them has really begun the great development of industry which has characterised our century before all others.

Theodore Bikel

However, the sciences of society and of history retained their old subservient relation to metaphysics for a long time - well into the eighteenth century.

In the first quarter of the nineteenth century the experimental proof for the interdependence of the composition and properties of chemical compounds resulted in the theory that they are mutually related, so that like composition governs like properties, and conversely.

Manhattan... capital of the 20th century, a city that has fascinated me for more than three decades.

But the beauty of Einstein's equations, for example, is just as real to anyone who's experienced it as the beauty of music. We've learned in the 20th century that the equations that work have inner harmony.

Edward Witten

I say we have not even had the decency to maintain the assets that our parents and grandparents built for us - our roads, our bridges, our wastewater systems, our sewer systems; by the way, those weren't Bolsheviks, those weren't socialists that built those things for us - much less build the infrastructure we need for the 21st century.

Michael Bennett

For in this century, within the next decades, will be decided for generations whether all mankind is to become Communist, whether the whole world is to become free, or whether, in the struggle, civilization as we know it is to be completely destroyed or completely changed.
