The Time Machine is the novel that gave us the concept of — and even the word for — a «time machine». While it’s not Wells’ first story involving time travel, it is the one that most fully fleshes out the concept of a device that can send a person backwards and forwards in time with complete precision. Time machines have since become a staple of the science fiction and fantasy genres, making The Time Machine one of the most deeply influential science fiction novels of the era.

Did you know that HG Wells was the first person to mention the word "Time Traveller" in a book?

I love H.G. Wells.

Ooooooh it was absolutely amazing!
I love science-fiction literature, and this novel is classic one of this type.
It's was written at 1895, but still kept the urgency. And also, on my own opinion, it is much more interesting than a lot of fantastic movies today.

And I have by me, for my comfort, two strange white flowers – shrivelled now, and brown and flat and brittle – to witness that even when mind and strength had gone, gratitude and a mutual tenderness still lived on in the heart of man.

Daniel Petrusachas quoted3 years ago
any real body must have extension in four directions: it must have Length, Breadth, Thickness, and—Duration. But through a natural infirmity of the flesh, which I will explain to you in a moment, we incline to overlook this fact. There are really four dimensions, three which we call the three planes of Space, and a fourth, Time. There is, however, a tendency to draw an unreal distinction between the former three dimensions and the latter, because it happens that our consciousness moves intermittently in one direction along the latter from the beginning to the end of our lives.

каждое реальное тело должно обладать четырьмя измерениями: оно должно иметь длину, ширину, высоту и Продолжительность существования. Но благодаря естественной немощью плоти, которую я объясню вам через минуту, мы склонны игнорировать этот факт. И все же существуют четыре измерения, три, которые мы называем трех плоскостях пространства, а четвертое-временным. Существует, однако, тенденция противопоставить три первых измерения последнему, но только потому, что наше сознание движется рывками лишь в одном-единственном направлении этого последнего от начала до конца нашей жизни.
