Famous quotes containing the words machines and/or war:

    The machines that are first invented to perform any particular movement are always the most complex, and succeeding artists generally discover that, with fewer wheels, with fewer principles of motion, than had originally been employed, the same effects may be more easily produced. The first systems, in the same manner, are always the most complex.
    Adam Smith (1723–1790)

    Bernstein: “Girls delightful in Cuba stop. Could send you prose poems about scenery but don’t feel right spending your money stop. There is no war in Cuba. Signed Wheeler.” Any answer?
    Charles Foster Kane: Yes—Dear Wheeler, You provide the prose poems, I’ll provide the war.
    Orson Welles (1915–1985)
