Famous quotes containing the words versions, home and/or computer:

    The assumption must be that those who can see value only in tradition, or versions of it, deny man’s ability to adapt to changing circumstances.
    Stephen Bayley (b. 1951)

    Jen: All the other boys fall over themselves and never even get to first base.
    Cory: Did you ever think, Jen, that I might not want to get to first base?
    Jen: Of course not. You’re out to make a home run.
    Blake Edwards (b. 1922)

    The Buddha, the Godhead, resides quite as comfortably in the circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as he does at the top of a mountain or in the petals of a flower.
    Robert M. Pirsig (b. 1928)
