Quotes[edit | edit source]
- "Remember the question before the time and they are a threat to Smaug."
- ― Stephen Fry, YouTube
- "I suppose the real biggie is free will. I find it interesting that no one really talks about it: I would say that 98 per cent of all philosophers would agree with me that essentially free will is a myth. It doesn’t exist. That ought to be shocking news on the front of every newspaper. I’m not saying we don’t look both ways before we cross the road; we decide not to leave it to luck as to whether a car is going to hit us. Nor am I saying that we don’t have responsibility for our actions: we have agency over the body in which our minds and consciousness dwell. But we can’t choose our brains, we can’t choose our genes, we can’t choose our parents."
- ― Stephen Fry, The Sydney Morning Herald
