We will create life from inanimate compounds, and we will find life in space. But the life that should more immediately interest us lies between these extremes, in the middle range we all inhabit between our genes and our stars.

Inanimate objects can be classified scientifically into three major categories; those that don’t work, those that break down and those that get lost.

Any object, whether animate or inanimate, will have a size. Airplanes, boats, or musical string instruments vary in size just like animals and plants, and in all cases, their size and their material construction are totally different matters even though they affect one another.

Gunnar Peterson
I’ve always had a problem with over-identification with inanimate objects.
Lisa Joy
Even quicker than the development of super-technology is the human adaptation to taking it for granted. We live in a world where regular people converse publicly with an inanimate object and escape Bedlam or a dunking.
Sara Pascoe
There’s something about seeing this little inanimate object coming to life that’s just very exciting. That’s why with ‘Nightmare’ I held out for so long to do it.
