Computers quotes
Computers
1.

Nothing in our culture, not even home computers, is more overrated than the epidermal felicity of two featherless bipeds in desperate congress.

- Quentin Crisp
2.

It is hardly surprising that children should enthusiastically start their education at an early age with the Absolute Knowledge of computer science; while they are unable to read, for reading demands making judgments at every line. Conversation is almost dead, and soon so too will be those who knew how to speak.

- Debord, Guy
3.

The question of whether a computer can think is no more interesting than the question of whether a submarine can swim.

- E. W. Dijkstra

- Boschert, Bob
5.

There will still be things that machines cannot do. They will not produce great art or great literature or great philosophy; they will not be able to discover the secret springs of happiness in the human heart; they will know nothing of love and friendship.

- Russell, Bertrand
6.

I do not fear computers. I fear the lack of them.

- Isaac Asimov
7.

They have computers, and they may have other weapons of mass destruction.

- Janet Reno
8.

There is never finality in the display terminal's screen, but an irresponsible whimsicality, as words, sentences, and paragraphs are negated at the touch of a key. The significance of the past, as expressed in the manuscript by a deleted word or an inserted correction, is annulled in idle gusts of electronic massacre.

- Cockburn, Alexander
9.

There are two distinctive classes of people today, those who have personal computers, and those who have several thousand extra dollars apiece.

- Barry, Dave

Electronic aids, particularly domestic computers, will help the inner migration, the opting out of reality. Reality is no longer going to be the stuff out there, but the stuff inside your head. It's going to be commercial and nasty at the same time.

- Ballard, J. G.
11.

The fathers of the field had been pretty confusing: John von Neumann speculated about computers and the human brain in analogies sufficiently wild to be worthy of a medieval thinker, and Alan Turing thought about criteria to settle the question of whether machines can think, a question of which we now know that it is about as relevant as the question of whether submarines can swim.

- E. W. Dijkstra
12.

Imagine if every Thursday your shoes exploded if you tied them the usual way. This happens to us all the time with computers, and nobody thinks of complaining.

- Jeff Raskin
13.

I really don't care that I don't have what's current because whatever is at the moment, it will be infinitely better in a few months and even better months later.

- Fink, William

Even though these technological advances originally sought to control information and bring order to the office, in many instances they have done just the opposite. The electronic office promised to reduce paper work and lessen work loads, but it has, in fact, generated more information that must sill be printed and -even more challenging-be assimilated. Since computers entered office systems, paper utilization has increased six-fold.

- Moore, Peter D.
