Quotes > I > Isaac Asimov

"Every period of human development has had its own particular type of human conflict-its own variety of problem that, apparently, could be settled only by force. And each time, frustratingly enough, force never really settled the problem. Instead, it persisted through a series of conflicts, then vanished of itself-what's the expression-ah, yes, 'not with a bang, but a whimper,' as the economic and social environment changed. And then, new problems, and a new series of wars." - Isaac Asimov
