Clarke’s Three Laws are three “laws” of prediction formulated by the British writer Arthur C. Clarke. They are:

a) When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
b) The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
c) Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic


3. Isaac Asimov’s three laws of robotics:

a) A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
b) A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
c) A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.


And some non-quotes:
