Herbert George Wells, better known to you and me as H.G. Wells, was one of the true pioneers of science fiction writing. (Think of The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, The First Men in the Moon, etc.) Born 21 September, 1866, he would later peer into his crystal ball and imagine many scenarios of how the world might look in future. But of all the words he wrote, the following quote, sent in as a reminder by Sally J, is the one we like the most.
Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.
