Famous quotes containing the words cart and/or transfer:

    When the boat comes to the bridge, it will go through; when the cart gets to the mountains, there will be a way to get over them.
    Chinese proverb.

    No sociologist ... should think himself too good, even in his old age, to make tens of thousands of quite trivial computations in his head and perhaps for months at a time. One cannot with impunity try to transfer this task entirely to mechanical assistants if one wishes to figure something, even though the final result is often small indeed.
    Max Weber (1864–1920)
