Top Clone Quotes

Clone Quotes By Ted Chiang

What I'll think is that you are clearly, maddeningly not me. It will remind me, again, that you won't be a clone of me; you can be wonderful, a daily delight, but you won't be someone I could have created by myself. — Ted Chiang

Clone Quotes By Christine O'Donnell

I am not a clone of Sarah Palin. I have my own thoughts. — Christine O'Donnell

Clone Quotes By Donald Miller

The real issue in the Christian community was that it was conditional. You were loved, but if you had questions, questions about whether the Bible was true or whether America was a good country or whether last week's sermon was good, you were not so loved. You were loved in word, but there was, without question, a social commodity that was being withheld from you until you shaped up. By toeing the party line you earned social dollars; by being yourself you did not. If you wanted to be valued, you became a clone. These are broad generalizations, and they are unfair, but this is what I was thinking at the time. — Donald Miller

Clone Quotes By Timothy Keller

Read and listen to one thinker and you become a clone; Read two and you become confused; Read ten and you get your own voice; Read a hundred and you start to become wise. — Timothy Keller

Clone Quotes By Fennel Hudson

It's better to be individual than a clone of someone else. — Fennel Hudson

Clone Quotes By James D. Watson

A clone of Einstein wouldn't be stupid, but he wouldn't necessarily be any genius, either. — James D. Watson

Clone Quotes By David Duchovny

If Fox Mulder discovered that Larry Sanders was a clone? I think he would stab him ... but it wouldn't be with an ice pick. — David Duchovny

Clone Quotes By Minari Endou

No matter how you spend the time, you'll have regrets. It'll never become a beautiful memory. Screw the once-in-a-lifetime crap. — Minari Endou

Clone Quotes By Brian Cramer

Calvin had been frozen for almost 300 years. After that, he had been quarantined to a laboratory for several days, fed kitten, insulted by a clone, befriended by a mass murderer, operated on by a psychopath, bounced around by a moon rover, and forced into his own feet by an airplane. He felt that it was all worth it just to experience this one moment. — Brian Cramer

Clone Quotes By Jarod Kintz

If you expect others to think for you, then you expect others to live your life for you. And I'm sorry, but the only person I'll let live my life for me is my clone. He thinks like me, so I'm OK with him thinking for me. — Jarod Kintz

Clone Quotes By Leslie Fiedler

Of the female black authors, I really like Morrison's early books a lot. But she's really become so much a clone of Faulkner. He did it better. — Leslie Fiedler

Clone Quotes By Luis Guzman

I always wondered if you clone your wife and have the cloned wife on the moon and the real wife down here, would that be considered cheating? — Luis Guzman

Clone Quotes By Jarod Kintz

Writing all day every day is good, but it's not good enough. You need to have your clone ghostwriting for you too. — Jarod Kintz

Clone Quotes By Atticus Shaffer

If there was any show I could guest star on, I would want to guest star on 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' because I am such a nerd and I love that show. If there was ever an opportunity to be on that, I would snatch it up. — Atticus Shaffer

Clone Quotes By Cormac McCarthy

In these silent sunless galleries he'd come to feel that another went before him and each glade he entered seemed just quit by a figure who'd been sitting there and risen and gone on. Some doublegoer, some othersuttree eluded him in these woods and he feared that should that figure fail to rise and steal away and were he therefore to come to himself in this obscure wood he'd neither be mended nor made whole but rather set mindless to dodder drooling with his ghosty clone from sun to sun across a hostile hemisphere forever. — Cormac McCarthy

Clone Quotes By Robert Winston

I do not know of any credible evidence that suggests Dr. Zavos can clone a human being. This seems to be yet another one of his claims to get publicity. — Robert Winston

Clone Quotes By Matt Lanter

It's a high honor to be a part of the Star Wars universe and such a long running show. Our talented writers, animators and cast of voice actors have made The Clone Wars truly unique. And of course we wouldn't have hit 100 episodes had it not been for our incredibly dedicated fans who make this possible! — Matt Lanter

Clone Quotes By Arnold Schwarzenegger

You can never find a candidate that will agree with everything you believe. Then you would just have a clone and that doesn't exist. — Arnold Schwarzenegger

Clone Quotes By Theodore Dalrymple

Huxley's Brave New World is set in an indefinitely distant future: it will not be possible for many years to say that Huxley's apprehensions have not proved justified. It is unlikely that populations will undergo genetic and environmental manipulation in the exact way that Huxley foresaw: there will never be a fixed number of predetermined strata, from Alpha Plus to Epsilon Minus Semi-Morons. But as an Italian scientist prepares to clone humans, and as reproduction grows as divorced from sex as sex is from reproduction, it is increasingly hard to regard Huxley's vision as entirely far-fetched. — Theodore Dalrymple

Clone Quotes By Gena Showalter

Honestly, I'd rather be anywhere else. Even home, where my dad begins almost every conversation with, "You should lose the black clothes and wear something with color." Puh-lease. Like I want to look like every Barbie clone in Hell High, a.k.a. Oklahoma's insignificant Haloway High School. Ironically, Dad doesn't appreciate the bright blue streaks in my originally blond/now-dyed-black hair. Go figure. That's color, right? — Gena Showalter

Clone Quotes By Clancy Brown

Star Wars - the movie I saw 12 times as a 17-year-old. The movie that began a cultural and creative universe that now spans generations. For me to be a part of this in The Clone Wars is a dream come true. — Clancy Brown

Clone Quotes By Michael Moorcock

One avoids becoming a Tolkien clone precisely by returning to the same roots that inspired The Lord of the Rings. — Michael Moorcock

Clone Quotes By Nathan Myhrvold

Suppose that 'Unsolved Mysteries' called you with news of a long-lost identical twin. Would that suddenly make you less of a person, less of an individual? It is hard to see how. So, why would a clone be different? Your clone would be raised in a different era by different people - like the lost identical twin, only younger than you. — Nathan Myhrvold

Clone Quotes By Ari Millen

'Clone Club' is incredible - probably the best set of fans any show could ever hope for. — Ari Millen

Clone Quotes By Karen Traviss

We're all going to die sometime, so you might as well die pushing the odds for something that matters. — Karen Traviss

Clone Quotes By Karen Traviss

And the maximum number extracted. You know what your bosses say about attachment, littl'un. Don't get too attached to me. — Karen Traviss

Clone Quotes By James Luceno

In part, the deep-space mobile battle station was meant to put an end to harassments of any sort, whether driven by greed, political dissent, or revenge for acts committed during the Clone Wars or since. Once everyone in the galaxy grasped the weapon's capabilities, once the fear of Imperial reprisal took hold, discontent would cease to be a problem. — James Luceno

Clone Quotes By V V Brown

I wish I could have a clone to do all the stuff that I don't like doing, like the red carpet stuff. — V V Brown

Clone Quotes By Neil Tennant

When I was I younger I didn't want to be gay. Not because I was scared of the sexual thing; I didn't want to be a clone. Now this was in the late '70s. — Neil Tennant

Clone Quotes By Michael Anti

Chinese national Internet policy is very simple: Block and clone. — Michael Anti

Clone Quotes By Mary J. Blige

It's sad that a lot of identities are lost and a lot of careers are lost because there's sort of a clone thing going on. — Mary J. Blige

Clone Quotes By Douglas Coupland

Bespoke tailoring: yes! I found this one pair of pants - they're Canali - and brought them into a tailor and said, 'Clone these, dammit.' They just do all the right things. I've got eight pairs in different colors and I never have to think about pants again. The only look otherwise that suits me is, like, the Professor from 'Gilligan's Island.' — Douglas Coupland

Clone Quotes By John Jackson Miller

The Clone Wars were yet another thing to be upset about. Everything about that conflict had been a lie. The Separatists had been this big enemy, and yet when the Empire was declared they'd melted away as if at the push of a button. The big corporations had staged the whole thing, Skelly was sure. Wars sold more ships, more weapons, and more medical devices. And in the Clone Wars, even the soldiers on both sides were manufactured goods. — John Jackson Miller

Clone Quotes By Dean Koontz

Every book has some real life in it. I was never pursued by an evil twin clone, but everything else in MR. MURDER was pretty much out of my own life. — Dean Koontz

Clone Quotes By Michelle M. Pillow

If I want to dress up like Princess Leia and lightsaber fight the clone army in my living room, well the Han Solo in my life is just going to have to accept it. — Michelle M. Pillow

Clone Quotes By Jarod Kintz

I made a mistake, but I didn't beat myself up about it. No, I beat up my clone. — Jarod Kintz

Clone Quotes By Iain Sinclair

I was gazing back in the direction of Wales, watching the Prudence clone, when I noticed a couple of drunks lurching in my direction. Night people who live in service stations. The insufficiently deceased. — Iain Sinclair

Clone Quotes By Daniel O'Malley

Plus, anyone who wants to clone himself is usually an asshole. You don't want any more of those running around than absolutely necessary." "So — Daniel O'Malley

Clone Quotes By Roger Spottiswoode

The basic premise of this is that, yes, people have learned to clone each other, but that cloning is illegal. Not that it's bad, just that the law as it is now, is that if you die, you're dead. — Roger Spottiswoode

Clone Quotes By George Takei

'Star Trek' is science fiction. 'Star Wars' is science fantasy. Based on the episodes I worked on, I think with 'Star Wars: Clone Wars,' we're starting to see a merging, though. It does deal, philosophically, with some of the issues of the time, which is always something 'Star Trek' was known for. — George Takei

Clone Quotes By Ashley Ream

Encino is a small community in the San Fernando Valley smashed up against and completely indistinguishable from all other Valley communities. You can drive from one to the other, passing the same dry cleaners, dubious sushi restaurants, and gas stations, without so much as a sign to mark your transition. It does, frankly, matter much where are you. If anything at all marks Encino from its clone neighbors, it's that it isn't aging quite as well. Sherman Oaks and Woodland Hills have kept their figures and shown up on time for regular collagen injections while Encino is really starting to let itself go. — Ashley Ream

Clone Quotes By Rachel Stevens

Having a clone would make it so much easier - it would be great to send a clone to a TV station when I have to get up at 4am. — Rachel Stevens

Clone Quotes By Jim Cummings

I've done so many other projects where you're in a room with a reader and you're acting your lines out: 'We have to get out of here! Any minute the building will explode!' And then the reader says: "Yes ... we have to get ... out of here." So it's not easy to be in the moment in that kind of situation. Reading with the entire cast in the room for The Clone Wars makes the experience much more organic and I love that. — Jim Cummings

Clone Quotes By James Luceno

His strategy of flying boldly into the face of adversity was studied and taught, and during the Clone Wars would come to be known as the Tarkin Rush, — James Luceno

Clone Quotes By Jeff Ayres

I sleep better at night knowing that scientists can clone sheep. — Jeff Ayres

Clone Quotes By Sylvia Ann Hewlett

Women of my age in America are at the mercy of two powerful and antagonistic traditions. The first is the ultradomestic fifties with its powerful cult of motherhood; the other is the strident feminism of the seventies with its attempt to clone the male competitive model ... Only in America are these ideologies pushed to extremes. — Sylvia Ann Hewlett

Clone Quotes By Marilyn Howshall

You will not reap the fruit of individuality in your children if you clone their education. — Marilyn Howshall

Clone Quotes By Kari Byron

Does anybody find it creepy how many Grant robots have been on the show? Is it just me or he like trying to clone himself and make a little army? — Kari Byron

Clone Quotes By Dave Barry

Now, once again, we find ourselves facing rising gas prices, and the question is: This time, are we going to learn from the past? Are we finally going to get serious about energy conservation? Of course not! We have the brains of mealworms! So we need to get more oil somehow. As far as I can figure, there's only one practical way to do this. That's right: We need to clone more dinosaurs. We have the technology, as was shown in two blockbuster scientific movies, Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park Returns with Exactly the Same Plot. Once we have the dinosaurs, all we need is an asteroid. — Dave Barry

Clone Quotes By Brent Schlender

While Steve's gadgets and computers drew the most attention, the software that made them go was every bit as important. Steve always said that Apple's primary competitive advantage was that it created the whole widget: the finely tuned symbiosis between the hardware and the software together defined a superior user experience. In the PC world, hardware and software technologies came from different companies that didn't always even get along, including IBM and the PC-clone manufacturers, Microsoft, and Intel. — Brent Schlender

Clone Quotes By Masashi Kishimoto

Hidan: That was pitiful! What happened there, buddy?
Kakuzu: You should talk. I wasn't the one who fell for a shadow clone!
Hidan: Ahaha, right. You saw that? — Masashi Kishimoto

Clone Quotes By Lindy Zart

I'd rather be weird than a clone of everyone else. — Lindy Zart

Clone Quotes By Chip Heath

Don't obsess about the failures. Instead, investigate and clone the successes. — Chip Heath

Clone Quotes By Amy Lane

And I'm not going to be my dad's clone. And women don't turn me on. And Oliver is my home." -Rusty (Christmas Kitsch) — Amy Lane

Clone Quotes By Karl Pilkington

How would I know which one I was? — Karl Pilkington

Clone Quotes By Alice Walker

We have to wake up. We have to refuse to be a clone. — Alice Walker

Clone Quotes By Sylvain Reynard

But he was not her Gabriel. Her Gabriel was dead. Gone. Leaving behind only vestiges of him in the body of a harsh and tortured clone. Gabriel had almost broken Julia's heart once. She was determined she would not let him break her heart for the second time. — Sylvain Reynard

Clone Quotes By Michael Welch

I guess because you study the character and you do all those things. But when it comes down to it, it's still my performance, it's still my interpretation. I'm not going to, you know, be a clone - well, I was a clone of Richard Dean Anderson! — Michael Welch

Clone Quotes By Ashley Eckstein

The milestone of 100 episodes is a reflection of the amazing work and dedication of the entire Clone Wars cast and crew. Being a part of this production has been an honor and privilege that has changed my life forever. — Ashley Eckstein

Clone Quotes By John Gurdon

If you took some famous religious leader, for example, and said it would be nice to clone them indefinitely so you have a dynasty of leaders, my own guess would be that each time the cloning takes place, they would become more and more defective, presumably mentally defective and subsequently worse. — John Gurdon

Clone Quotes By Arthur Caplan

[Cloning] can't make you immortal because clearly the clone is a different person. If I take twins and shoot one of them, it will be faint consolation to the dead one that the other one is still running around, even though they are genetically identical. So the road to immortality is not through cloning. — Arthur Caplan

Clone Quotes By Gregory Stock

There is a pent-up demand from people who want to clone their dead children. — Gregory Stock

Clone Quotes By Lois McMaster Bujold

We're just good friends," caroled Miles, and laughed hysterically. He lunged for the comconsole - the guards grabbed for him and missed - and, climbing across the desk, snarled into the vid, "Stay away from her, you little shit! She's mine, you hear, mine, mine, all mine - Quinn, Quinn, beautiful Quinn, Quinn of the evening, beautiful Quinn," he sang off-key as the guards dragged him back. Blows ran him down into silence. "I thought you had him on fast-penta," said the clone to Galen. "We do." "It doesn't sound like fast-penta! — Lois McMaster Bujold

Clone Quotes By A. Violet End

Tristan stepped away from me. No, Robbie, listen. If there were any other way to turn off her programming, I would tell you. Lisa wants to know what she really feels, free of the programming, and I think we should help her. The pills will still keep her a bit compliant until we get her weaned off of them, but at least we can turn off her compulsion to please me sexually. Then she can really choose who she loves. — A. Violet End

Clone Quotes By Joe Abercrombie

I just think TV is becoming more and more interesting in a way. Films are more and more derivative, you know, whether it's 'Transformers 2' or 'Shrek 5', or it's yet another iteration of another kind of clone of something else. It's a bit depressing in a way. — Joe Abercrombie

Clone Quotes By Janet Evanovich

Since I can barely write two books a year the best solution seems to be co-author projects. My goal isn't to get another writer to clone me ... it's more to produce a book that shares my vision of positive, fun entertainment. — Janet Evanovich

Clone Quotes By Elizabeth Perkins

I would kill the clone. That would be my first response. — Elizabeth Perkins

Clone Quotes By Timothy Keller

If you read one book you are a clone. If you read two books you are confused. If you read ten books you have your own voice. And if you read one hundred books you are wise. (paraphrase) — Timothy Keller

Clone Quotes By Rysa Walker

I don't know anything for certain. You and I could both explode in the next two seconds. Or the swimming pool over there could have a clone of the Loch Ness monster swimmin' about on the bottom, ready to spring out and have us for a midnight snack."
He's trying to make me laugh, but I'm tired enough and jumpy enough that I cast a wary glance at the pool before looking back at him. — Rysa Walker

Clone Quotes By Milo Aukerman

I want to be stereotyped. I want to be classified. I want to be a clone. I want to be masochistic. I want to be sadistic. I want a Suburban Home. I don't want no hipppie pad; I want a house just like Mom and Dad. — Milo Aukerman

Clone Quotes By Timothy Keller

When you listen and read one thinker, you become a clone ... two thinkers, you become confused ... ten thinkers, you'll begin developing your own voice ... two or three hundred thinkers, you become wise and develop your voice. — Timothy Keller

Clone Quotes By Karen Miller

I think - " Anakin kicked his heel against the polished marble floor. "I think I hate it when I can't stop my men from getting hurt. From dying. I think - — Karen Miller

Clone Quotes By Anne Eliot

Say something, Jess. Say anything.
And just when I'm about to think of what I should say next, my mouth goes into whacked overdrive like I'm possessed. "The graphic art in Clone Wars is my favorite," I say. "I love how they drew the characters. You know - how everything looks so angular and - "
My words tangle and freeze when my brain finally arrives to shut it down.
Say something but NOT THAT, you psycho!
"Clone Wars. Love it, do I? Yesss." He's actually responded in a Yoda voice!
I blink.
His eyes are kind, sparkling with laughter and still, all too green. Yoda green! — Anne Eliot

Clone Quotes By Sonu Nigam

When I started, I faced a lot of hardships. People used to call me a Rafi clone because I used to sing my favourite singer's songs. Then 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa' happened. It gave me a good break. — Sonu Nigam

Clone Quotes By Jeffery Deaver

A young officer in my organization, Lyle Ahmad, was a solid, olive-skinned former marine with a trim crew cut. He was a clone, a close protection officer. I had met Ahmad when he was a marine guarding the U.S. embassy in Warsaw and I was an agent with the State Department's protection and investigation arm, Diplomatic Security, where I worked before joining my present outfit. He was quiet and sharp and boasted impressive multiple-language skills. He was a rising star in our organization. Driving — Jeffery Deaver

Clone Quotes By Camille Paglia

If men are obsolete, then women will soon be extinct
unless we rush down that ominous Brave New World path where women clone themselves by parthenogenesis, as famously do Komodo dragons, hammerhead sharks, and pit vipers. — Camille Paglia

Clone Quotes By Karen Traviss

Regular people said they couldn't tell the difference between one clone and another, did they? That was what came of spending too much time looking at faces and not enough wondering what shaped people and went on inside their heads. — Karen Traviss

Clone Quotes By Adam Rex

The Boov frowned. 'Everybodies always is wanting to make a clone for to doing their work. If you are not wanting to do your work, why would a clone of you want to do your work? — Adam Rex

Clone Quotes By David Mitchell

Better a soulless clone... than a souled roach. — David Mitchell

Clone Quotes By Randall Munroe

A child from a parent who self-fertilized would be like a clone of the parent with severe genetic damage. — Randall Munroe

Clone Quotes By Jarod Kintz

My new book is going well. It's practically writing itself! Actually, what I mean is I'm not writing it, my clone is. — Jarod Kintz

Clone Quotes By A. Violet End

Look, that was some weird shit, you dying and then returning from the dead. I know it was no accident that you stopped by the Honky Tonk last time you were in town. You were in trouble, Lisa. I could see it all over your face." He paused for a gulp of his beer. "You know what you did to me? You got any idea just how fucked up my head has been since you walked out that door? — A. Violet End

Clone Quotes By Fennel Hudson

We should be authentic: the 'real deal'. Neither a clone nor mimic be. — Fennel Hudson

Clone Quotes By Betty Friedan

Each woman is made to feel it is her own cross to bear if she can't be the perfect clone of the male superman and the perfect clone of the feminine mystique. — Betty Friedan

Clone Quotes By James Luceno

Tarkin himself had discussed the need for such a weapon with the Emperor long before the end of the Clone Wars. But no one outside the Emperor knew the full history of the moonlet-sized project. Some claimed that it had begun as a Separatist weapon designed by Geonosian Archduke Poggle the Lesser's hive colony for Count Dooku and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. But if that was the case, the plans had to have somehow fallen into Republic hands before the Clone Wars ended, because the weapon's spherical shell and laser-focusing dish were already in the works by the time Tarkin first set eyes on it following his promotion to the rank of Moff - escorted to Geonosis in utmost secrecy by the Emperor himself. — James Luceno

Clone Quotes By Kabir Sehgal

In Star Wars, there was monetary confusion and competition. Despite being backed by metals, credits were refused by planets during periods of uncertainty, such as the Clone Wars. The credit was later known as the "Imperial Credit" and was used by Luke Skywalker to pay Han Solo for transport to the planet Alderaan. Yet smugglers avoided using state-sanctioned money and opted for precious metals like platinum. Those in the Ferengi Alliance traded gold-pressed latinum, a material that could not — Kabir Sehgal

Clone Quotes By Ellen Hopkins

Or might the soul clone itself,
create a perfect imitation
of something yet to be
defined? In this way,
can a reflection be altered? — Ellen Hopkins

Clone Quotes By Lewis Thomas

I agree that you might clone some people who would look amazingly like their parental cell donors, but the odds are that they'd be almost as different as you or me, and certainly more different than any of today's identical twins. — Lewis Thomas

Clone Quotes By Nancy Farmer

No one can tell the difference between a clone and a human. That's because there isn't any difference. The idea of clones being inferior is a filthy lie. — Nancy Farmer

Clone Quotes By Karen Miller

As far as Ahsoka Tano was concerned, the only thing worse than being up to her armpits in battle droids was waiting to find out just how long it would be before she was up to her armpits in battle droids. — Karen Miller

Clone Quotes By Alonzo King

The world loves a clone and a good knock-off. It cheats the artist ... In the obsession for technical wizardry, people disappear; and if your voice isn't present in a relationship, you don't matter. — Alonzo King

Clone Quotes By Gregory Stock

There are a lot of people highly motivated to be the first to clone a human. — Gregory Stock

Clone Quotes By Cristina Marrero

I would rather die an individual than live my life as a clone. — Cristina Marrero

Clone Quotes By D.A. Wallach

If you don't have an idea, you can defer to someone else. It's like having a baby with someone - it's not a clone of you, but it's partly you. — D.A. Wallach

Clone Quotes By Nessa Carey

Imagine Spider-Man is standing in a set position and needs to get something. He throws a web at the thing he wants, and then drags it to him. Now imagine that a very tiny Spider-Man is standing at one end of a cell. He throws a web at the chromosome he wants, the web attaches, and he pulls the chromosome to his end of the cell. A tiny Spider-Man clone does the same thing at the opposite end of the cell for the other chromosome in the matching pair. — Nessa Carey

Clone Quotes By David Mitchell

To enslave an individual troubles your consciences, Archivist, but to enslave a clone is no more troubling than owning the latest six-wheeler ford, ethically. Because you cannot discern our differences, you assume we have none. But make no mistake: even same-stem fabricants cultured in the same wombtank are as singular as snowflakes. — David Mitchell

Clone Quotes By Miranda Mellis

As a child, my own mother told me the human heart spun on an axis smaller than a dime. Like her father, she sold "life for love" insurance. For the price of ten years off your life, you could purchase insurance on a ten-year love affair. Plans were also available in increments of twenty-five and fifty. If your love affair failed before your insurance expired, they'd provide you with a clone of the loved one for the duration of the term. Sometimes the clone worked out even better than the original. — Miranda Mellis

Clone Quotes By Blake Crouch

Isaiah said, "I'll need access to Richter's phone for one hour. This is his replacement." "Does it work?" "No. It was impossible for Mark to replicate his contact list, apps, texts, call history. Safer play to swap it for a nonfunctioning phone. It'll power up and display a black screen. What I'm asking isn't easy. I need you to swap his current phone out for this one. Then you're going to have to hand off his phone to my contact at the club. He'll find you, so don't worry about that. Then you have to entertain Richter for an hour while my guy builds the clone. Then you have to switch his real phone back for the fake. — Blake Crouch

Clone Quotes By Steve Jones

Life managed without males for its first billion years, much of which was passed as single cells in a series of warm ponds. Then, in some ancient and neutral Eden, the fruit of the tree of sexual knowledge - a new mutation - persuaded members of a particular clone to fuse with cells from another, and then to divide. That ingenious idea is good news for the novel gene, as it doubles its rate of spread, but is a lot less so for those who receive it, who are obliged to copy the extra DNA. At once, two factions emerge, one keen to force itself upon the other. Thus sex was invented.
Soon one contestant began to cheat. Large cells are expensive, but are better at dividing because they have more food reserves. Small cells are cheaper to make, but cannot afford to split. Their sole chance of success hence lies in fusion with a large cell. The first males had appeared on the scene. — Steve Jones

Clone Quotes By Michael C. Bailey

The singer was so heavily auto-tuned she sounded like a Cylon. From the original Battlestar Galactica, I mean, not one of the sexy clone types from the reboot. After — Michael C. Bailey
