  1. #1
    “Ever seen an abacus? You know, those centipedelike things with wooden beads in rows. They’re sold mostly in knickknack import shops, for wall decoration. But, in fact, an abacus is an adding machine, calculator, and computer. On second thought, that’s not quite true. The abacus is just a visual record of the computations going on in the mind of the person using it.”
  2. #2
    “We modern, urban, educated folks yell at traffic and umpires and bills and banks and machines- especially machines. Machines and relatives get most of the yelling.”
  3. #3
    “The human being is a machine. An automatic machine. It is composed of thousands of complex and delicate
    mechanisms, which perform their functions harmoniously and perfectly, in accordance with laws devised for their governance, and over which the man himself has no authority, no mastership, no control.”
