Famous quotes containing the words automation, security and/or content:

    Besides black art, there is only automation and mechanization.
    Federico García Lorca (1898–1936)

    Thanks to recent trends in the theory of knowledge, history is now better aware of its own worth and unassailability than it formerly was. It is precisely in its inexact character, in the fact that it can never be normative and does not have to be, that its security lies.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)

    Our frigate takes fire,
    The other asks if we demand quarter?
    If our colors are struck and the fighting done?
    Now I laugh content for I hear the voice of my little captain,
    We have not struck, he composedly cries, we have just begun our part of the fighting.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
