The more unpredictable the world is the more we rely on predictions.
The unpredictability inherent in human affairs is due largely to the fact that the by-products of a human process are more fateful than the product.
It is never possible to predict a physical occurrence with unlimited precision.
Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck
I think predictability has become the rule and I'm completely the opposite -- I like spectators to be disturbed.
Predictions of the future are never anything but projections of present automatic processes and procedures, that is, of occurrences that are likely to come to pass if men do not act and if nothing unexpected happens; every action, for better or worse, and every accident necessarily destroys the whole pattern in whose frame the prediction moves and where it finds its evidence.
Legends of prediction are common throughout the whole Household of Man. Gods speak, spirits speak, computers speak. Oracular ambiguity or statistical probability provides loopholes, and discrepancies are expunged by Faith.
Guin, Ursula K. Le
If I reprehend anything in this world, it is the use of my oracular tongue, and a nice derangement of epitaphs!
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
One need only think of the weather, in which case the prediction even for a few days ahead is impossible.
People get a bad impression of it by continually trying to treat it as if it was a bank clerk, who ought to be on time on Tuesday next, instead of philosophically seeing it as a painter, who may do anything so long as you don't try to predict what.
A change in the weather is sufficient to recreate the world and ourselves.
