Famous quotes containing the words freeman dyson, freeman and/or dyson:

    If we had a reliable way to label our toys good and bad, it would be easy to regulate technology wisely. But we can rarely see far enough ahead to know which road leads to damnation. Whoever concerns himself with big technology, either to push it forward or to stop it, is gambling in human lives.
    Freeman Dyson (b. 1923)

    I am a freeman and jolly as a beggar.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    A good scientist is a person with original ideas. A good engineer is a person who makes a design that works with as few original ideas as possible. There are no prima donnas in engineering.
    —Freeman Dyson (b. 1923)
