futurologists’ favourite quotes

from The Tomorrow People:

Henry Ford: ‘If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.’

Alvin Toffler, futurologist and writer: ‘The future always arrives too fast… and in the wrong order.’

Prof Alan Kay, computer scientist based at UCLA: ‘The only way you can predict the future is to build it.’

Rudyard Kipling: ‘If you can dream – and not make dreams your master.’

William Gibson: ‘The future has already happened, it just isn’t very well distributed.’

to which I would add

Albert Einstein: ‘I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.’
