Literary Birthday - 21 September
Happy Birthday, H. G. Wells, born 21 September 1866, died 13 August 1946
10 Quotes
Nothing leads so straight to futility as literary ambitions without systematic knowledge.
No passion in the world is equal to the passion to alter someone else’s draft.
Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.
Moral indignation is jealousy with a halo.
Our true nationality is mankind.
So many promising girls allowed themselves to be submerged altogether in marriage for a time, and when they emerged everyone had forgotten the promise of their début.
Advertising is legalized lying.
We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery.
If we don’t end war, war will end us.
It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men’s lives should not pay with their own.
Wells was an English writer, best known for writing in the science fiction genre. He also wrote contemporary novels, history, politics and social commentary, textbooks and rules for war games. Wells is sometimes called ‘The Father of Science Fiction’, along with Jules Verne and Hugo Gernsback. His most notable books include The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, The Invisible Man and The Island of Doctor Moreau.
