Speed Automatic

Famous quotes containing the words speed and/or automatic:

    The terror of the atom age is not the violence of the new power but the speed of man’s adjustment to it—the speed of his acceptance.
    —E.B. (Elwyn Brooks)

    What we learn for the sake of knowing, we hold; what we learn for the sake of accomplishing some ulterior end, we forget as soon as that end has been gained. This, too, is automatic action in the constitution of the mind itself, and it is fortunate and merciful that it is so, for otherwise our minds would be soon only rubbish-rooms.
    Anna C. Brackett (1836–1911)
