Remote Machine

Famous quotes containing the words remote and/or machine:

    All our civilization had meant nothing. The same culture that had nurtured the kindly enlightened people among whom I had been brought up, carried around with it war. Why should I not have known this? I did know it, but I did not believe it. I believed it as we believe we are going to die. Something that is to happen in some remote time.
    Mary Heaton Vorse (1874–1966)

    The machine invades me all day.
    Sharon Atkins, U.S. receptionist. As quoted in Working, book 2, by Studs Terkel (1973)
