"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

The World Future Society, founded in 1966, is an association of people interested in how social & technological developments are shaping the future. It endeavors to help individuals, organizations, & communities see, understand, & respond appropriately & effectively to change.

Through media, meetings, & dialogue among its members, it raises awareness of change & encourages development of creative solutions.

The Society takes no official position on what the future will or should be like. Instead it acts as a neutral forum for exploring possible, probable, & preferable futures.

The World Future Society has published numerous books, including 'Futuring: The Exploration of the Future' by Society founder Edward Cornish, as well as several print & electronic journals, including 'The Futurist', a bimonthly magazine focused on innovation, creative thinking, & emerging social, economic, & technological trends.
