Stolen Bases

Famous quotes containing the words stolen and/or bases:

    I felt proud of myself. I had stolen the honey of a spasm without impairing the morals of a minor.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    The information links are like nerves that pervade and help to animate the human organism. The sensors and monitors are analogous to the human senses that put us in touch with the world. Data bases correspond to memory; the information processors perform the function of human reasoning and comprehension. Once the postmodern infrastructure is reasonably integrated, it will greatly exceed human intelligence in reach, acuity, capacity, and precision.
    Albert Borgman, U.S. educator, author. Crossing the Postmodern Divide, ch. 4, University of Chicago Press (1992)
