Will You One Day Marry A Robot

Famous quotes containing the words robot, day and/or marry:

    Let’s start with the three fundamental Rules of Robotics.... We have: one, a robot may not injure a human being, or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. Two, a robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. And three, a robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.
    Isaac Asimov (1920–1992)

    I don’t know what it is about fecundity that so appalls. I suppose it is the teeming evidence that birth and growth, which we value, are ubiquitous and blind, that life itself is so astonishingly cheap, that nature is as careless as it is bountiful, and that with extravagance goes a crushing waste that will one day include our own cheap lives.
    Annie Dillard (b. 1945)

    ...it is better to marry than to be aflame with passion.
    Bible: New Testament, 1 Corinthians 7:9.

    King James translation reads, “It is better to marry than to burn.”
