1 Technology... is a queer thing. It brings you great gifts with one hand, and it stabs you in the back with the other. ~C.P. Snow, New York Times, 15 March 1971 The most important and urgent problems of the technology of today are no longer the satisfactions of the primary needs or of archetypal wishes, but the reparation of the evils and damages by the technology of yesterday. ~Dennis Gabor, Innovations: Scientific, Technological and Social, 1970 I like my new telephone, my computer works just fine, my calculator is perfect, but Lord, I miss my mind! ~Author Unknown

2 The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom. ~Isaac Asimov, Isaac Asimov's Book of Science and Nature Quotations, 1988 The production of too many useful things results in too many useless people. ~Karl Marx It is questionable if all the mechanical inventions yet made have lightened the day's toil of any human being. ~John Stuart Mill

3 Where there is the necessary technical skill to move mountains, there is no need for the faith that moves mountains. ~Eric Hoffer Lo! Men have become the tools of their tools. ~Henry David Thoreau The real danger is not that computers will begin to think like men, but that men will begin to think like computers. ~Sydney J. Harris

4 Technology or perish- John R. Pierce All technological progress, our very civilization, is like the axe in the hand of the pathological criminal- Albert Einstein If there is a technological advance without social advance, there is, almost automatically, an increase in human misery- Michael Harrington
