Remote Machine

Famous quotes containing the words remote and/or machine:

    Oh! what a poor thing is human life in its best enjoyments!—subjected to imaginary evils when it has no real ones to disturb it! and that can be made as effectually unhappy by its apprehensions of remote contingencies as if it was struggling with the pains of a present distress!
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)

    The machine is impersonal, it takes the pride away from a piece of work, the individual merits and defects that go along with all work that is not done by a machine—which is to say, its little bit of humanity.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
