Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent’s fate.

Sun Tzu, The Art Of War

This is a ruthless world and one must be ruthless to cope with it.

Charlie Chaplin

Man is still the most extraordinary computer of all.

John F. Kennedy

Concern with pleasing humans causes the loss of all spiritual growth.

Umberto Eco, Baudolino

He called so loud that all the hollow deep
Of Hell resounded:–Princes, Potentates,
Warriors, the Flower of Heaven–once yours; now lost,
If such astonishment as this can seize
Eternal Spirits! Or have ye chosen this place
After the toil of battle to repose
Your wearied virtue, for the ease you find
To slumber here, as in the vales of Heaven?

John Milton, Paradise Lost

It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.

Walt Disney

It is better to take what does not belong to you than to let it lie around neglected.

Mark Twain

Before all else, be armed.

Niccolo Machiavelli

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

Isaac Asimov
