We are becoming the servants in thought, as in action, of the machine we have created to serve us.
~John Kenneth Galbraith
Man is a slow, sloppy and brilliant thinker; the machine is fast, accurate and stupid.

~Brian Eno

Use of advanced messaging technology does not imply an endorsement of western industrial civilization.
Once upon a time we were just plain people. But that was before we began having relationships with mechanical systems. Get involved with a machine and sooner or later you are reduced to a factor.

I think I should not go far wrong if I asserted that the amount of genuine leisure available in a society is generally in inverse proportion to the amount of labor-saving machinery it employs. 
~E.F. Schumacher

It is difficult not to wonder whether that combination of elements which produces a machine for labor does not create also a soul of sorts, a dull resentful metallic will, which can rebel at times.
~Pearl S. Buck

The real problem is not whether machines think but whether men do.
~B.F. Skinner

The machine does not isolate man from the great problems of nature but plunges him more deeply into them.

What the country needs are a few labor-making inventions.
~Arnold Glasow
