Famous quotes containing the words technology, modern and/or printing:

    The real accomplishment of modern science and technology consists in taking ordinary men, informing them narrowly and deeply and then, through appropriate organization, arranging to have their knowledge combined with that of other specialized but equally ordinary men. This dispenses with the need for genius. The resulting performance, though less inspiring, is far more predictable.
    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)

    I ask especially that no state shall, by law or otherwise, authorize the return of the saloon, either in its old form or in some modern guise.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)

    Before printing was discovered, a century was equal to a thousand years.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
