Favorite Putin Quotes

1. "The north wind and the sun were disputing which was the stronger, and agreed to acknowledge as the victor whichever of them could strip a traveler of his clothing. The wind tried first. But its violent gusts only made the man hold his clothes tightly around him, and when it blew harder still the cold made him so uncomfortable that he put on an extra wrap. Eventually the wind got tired of it and handed him over to the sun. The sun shone first with moderate warmth, which made the man take off his topcoat. Then it blazed fiercely, till, unable to stand the heat, he stripped and went off to a bathe in a nearby river. Persuasion is more effective than force."
Author: Aesop
2. "The computing field is always in need of new cliches."
Author: Alan Perlis
3. "Nu, spune cuceritorul, sa nu credeti ca, iubind actiunea, a trebuit sa ma dezvat sa gîndesc. Dimpotriva, pot de minune sa definesc lucrul în care cred. Caci cred în el cu tarie si îl vad în mod sigur si limpede. Sa va îndoiti de cei ce spun: «Stiu lucrul asta atît de bine, încît mi-e cu neputinta sa-l exprim»; caci daca nu pot s-o faca, înseamna ca nu-l stiu sau ca, din lene, s-au oprit la învelisul lui."
Author: Albert Camus
4. "Cat de mult seamana viata din zilele noastre cu un bal mizerabil: un pic de lumina, un pic de muzica, putin dans, apoi intuneric. Priveste. Luminile au fost deja stinse, resturile de mancare au fost deja aruncate cainilor."
Author: Amos Oz
5. "We are hurtling back into a Soviet abyss, into an information vacuum that spells death from our own ignorance. All we have left is the internet, where information is still freely available. For the rest, if you want to go on working as a journalist, it's total servility to Putin. Otherwise, it can be death, the bullet, poison, or trial—whatever our special services, Putin's guard dogs, see fit."
Author: Anna Politkovskaya
6. "Es nezinu, kas ir maksla. Makslas spodra zvaigzne ir tik loti iejukusi pareja, ka sasoditi viegli parskatities. Makslai nav ne robežu, nedz ari kadu noteiktu pazimju. Bieži vien maksla sakas tikai tur, kur tiek parkapts kads no tas "mužigajiem" likumiem. Pie makslas reizem nonak, laužoties cauri pavisam nelabiem brikšniem, un noiet tai garam pa vistaisnako un platako celu. Maksla ir loti netaisna. Viscildenaka dvesele var ielikt sava muža darba škistako sajusmas un karstakas sirds asinis, derigakas atzinas un krietnakas pamacibas un radit tikai negaumigas un nederigas blenas. Bet nelietigs škelmis vai pusjucis nelga sagruž kaut ko akstidamies vai pat zaimodams, un raugi – tur ta pekšni iezibas, mužiga nodeviga maksla! Maksla ir untumaina. Reizem ta ilgi nedodas pazistama; nabaga makslinieks nomirst, vilies savos laikabiedros un ari pats sevi, un tad – piepeši vina izputinatos darbus mekle ka lielakos dargumus."
Author: Anšlavs Eglitis
7. "Items of interest will be located, identified, monitored, and remotely controlled through technologies such as radio-frequency identification, sensor networks, tiny embedded servers, and energy harvesters - all connected to the next-generation internet using abundant, low-cost, and high-power computing."
Author: David Petraeus
8. "Am întors spatele filozofiei cînd mi-am dat seama ca e cu neputinta sa descopar la Kant vreo slabiciune omeneasca, vreo urma adevarata de tristete; la Kant si la toti filozofii. In raport cu muzica, cu mistica si poezia, activitatea filozofica e hranita de o seva sub¬tiata si de o profunzime suspecta, care nu-i ademe¬neste decît pe oamenii timizi sau caldicei. De altfel, filozofia — neliniste impersonala, refugiu în preajma unor idei anemice — e solutia tuturor celor care fug de exuberanta corupatoare a vietii. Aproape toti filo¬zofii au sfîrsit bine: iata supremul argument îm¬potriva filozofiei. Sfîrsitul lui Socrate însusi nu are în el nimic tragic: e o neîntelegere, sfîrsitul unui pedagog — iar Nietzsche s-a prabusit doar ca poet si vizionar: el si-a ispasit extazele, nu rationamentele."
Author: Emil Cioran
9. "E drept ca mai mult de atât ce ar putea fi Urâtul? Un iad ce nu sta în putin?a Diavolului sa-l imagineze, dar pe care-l elaboreaza cu grija uciga?a demen?a lucida a carnii."
Author: Emil Cioran
10. "The computing world is very good at things that we are not. It is very good at memory."
Author: Eric Schmidt
11. "Cloud computing is a great euphemism for centralization of computer services under one server."
Author: Evgeny Morozov
12. "Computer games tend to be boys' games, warlike games with more violence. We have not spent enough time thinking through how to encourage more girls to be involved in computing before coming to college so they can see a possible career in information technology."
Author: Freeman A. Hrabowski III
13. "Putin is like Al Capone."
Author: Garry Kasparov
14. "Putin recognized that if he could get enough money, everything would be under control."
Author: Garry Kasparov
15. "Fiecare îsi comunica erorile cum poate iar ele cuprind totdeauna un pic de adevar; ceilalti înteleg cît pot; fiecare spune mai putin decît întelege si întelege mai mult decît i se spune, iar ce întelege nu i se spune, fiindca ce i se spune nu întelege, si asa mai departe."
Author: Gellu Naum
16. "Alan Turing gave us a mathematical model of digital computing that has completely withstood the test of time. He gave us a very, very clear description that was truly prophetic."
Author: George Dyson
17. "Much of the international unease with the Sochi Games has focused on the threat of terrorism, Putin's domestic repressiveness, and the Russian campaign of anti-gay propaganda."
Author: George Packer
18. "Ea î?i dorea un fiu;ar fi trebuit sa fie voinic ?i brunet;îi va spune Georges;idea de a avea un baiat era ca o speran?a a razbunarii împotriva tuturor neputin?elor trecute.Cel pu?in,un barbat e liber;el poate trai pasiunile ?i strabate ?arile,poate trece peste obstacole,poate gusta cele mai îndepartate bucurii.În schimb,unei femei i se impun tot felul de piedici.Inerta ?i flexibila în acela?i timp,are împotriva ei slabiciunea trupului ?i obliga?iile legii.Voin?a ei,la fel ca voalata palariei,prinsa cu o panglica,tremura la orice adiere;exista mereu o dorin?a care o atrage,mereu o regula care o împiedica."
Author: Gustave Flaubert
19. "Un barbat indragostit e sters de pe lista celor vii. Devine idiot, nu numai idiot, dar primejdios. Intrerup, cu barbatii indragostiti de mine sau care, cel putin, pretind ca sunt, orice relatie apropiata, mai intai pentru ca ma plictisesc, apoi, pentru ca devin suspecti, ca un caine turbat care poate avea o criza. Ii trec, asadar, in carantina morala, pana cand se vindeca. Sa nu uiti asta. Stiu foarte bine ca, la tine, dragostea e doar un soi de pofta, in timp ce la mine ar fi, dimpotriva, un soi de comuniune a sufletelor, care nu face parte din religia barbatilor. Tu ai intelege litera, iar eu spiritul..."
Author: Guy De Maupassant
20. "True, Putin's Russia does not dream of joining the E.U., but Russia's stability depends on preserving the European nature of its regime."
Author: Ivan Krastev
21. "In 2008, Putin's message was, 'We aren't like a Central Asian republic, we aren't going to build a personalistic regime, we will have institutions.' This is all abolished now. The very idea of a governing party and party career, as you have in China, that didn't work."
Author: Ivan Krastev
22. "The universe is computing its own destiny."
Author: James Gleick
23. "Stiu ca orice tovarasie este o iluzie a anularii singuratatii,dar si asa traiesc pentru cele cateva iluzii,asa incat una in plus sau in minus...Si albastrul cerului e o iluzie,dar nu ma incanta mai putin din cauza asta."
Author: Jeni Acterian
24. "By the 1980's and 1990's, Moore's Law had emerged as the underlying assumption that governed almost everything in the Valley, from technology to business, education, and even culture. The "law" said the number of transistors would double every couple of years. It dictated that nothing stays the same for more than a moment; no technology is safe from its successor; costs fall and computing power increases not at a constant rate but exponentially: If you're not running on what became known as " Internet time," you're falling behind."
Author: John Markoff
25. "Back in 1995, Bill Gates himself didn't understand that the internet was the direction computing was going."
Author: John Podhoretz
26. "I am not disputing the need for this money. What I am disputing and calling attention to is the fact that we are taking the tab for defense in our time against terrorists in the Middle East and elsewhere and shoving this tab off onto our children."
Author: John Spratt
27. "Si daca nu merge in linie dreapta, cel putin stie destul de bine unde vrea sa ajunga."
Author: José Saramago

Author: Larry Ellison
30. "Whatever question arose, a swarm of these drones, without having finished their buzzing on a previous theme, flew over to the new one and by their hum drowned and obscured the voices of those who were disputing honestly."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
31. "Ca era dimineata ori seara, vineri ori duminica ? ii era totuna; era la fel, aceeasi durere surda, chinuitoare, care nu-l lasa o clipa; mereu constiinta vietii care se stinge fara putinta de impotrivire, dar care mai dainuie; moartea care se apropia, cumplita si hada ? numai ea singura era realitatea, iar celelalte toate...minciuna. La ce bun sa mai tii socoteala zilelor, saptamanilor, ceasurilor ?"
Author: Leo Tolstoy
32. "E adevarat, te-am iubit si atunci mult. Dar iubirea la care raspunzi nu e decît jumatate iubire. Chiar mai putin decît atît. Daca te sarutam o data, îmi întorceai zece sarutari la loc si nu eram lacoma dupa ele pentru ca mi le dadeai din belsug. Acum, acum sa ma fi lasat sa te sarut, cînd nu mai era cu putinta. Ai fi stiut ce înseamna o sarutare. Si as fi stiut, bineînteles, si eu."
Author: Mihail Drumeş
33. "Am mai vazut fotografii de-ale ei de cînd era doar o adolescenta. Toate mi s-au parut cu neputinta de suportat, ca si cînd ai vrea sa tii mîna pe un fier înrosit. Nici nu stia ca existi cînd si le-a facut, iar faptul ca ai pierdut momente atît de pretioase din viata ei ca a risipit atîta emotie pentru altcineva decît pentru tine, chiar daca pentru nimeni, este de neînteles, denetrait."
Author: Mircea Cărtărescu
34. "Chiar melomanii îl irita, oamenii aceia macerati de o singura patima, neputinciosi sa traiasca fara muzica, fara concupiscenta fonica, palizi si rafinati, cu ochii extatici sau orbi, injectati de voluptate, adunându-se unii lânga altii si abandonându-se viciului, fara pudoare, fara reculegere, juisând în public, probabil felicitându-se de sensibilitatea lor muzicala. Sunt afemeiati, invertiti sau masochisti ai spiritului; spiritul, de obicei, e ponderat si are initiativa asupra obiectelor, constrânge si purifica senzatiile, dar la ei spiritul e biciuit de voluptate, e posedat de inspiratia vreunui sentiment urias (toti compozitorii au fost sentimentali, pasionati si abulici, chiar Beethoven)."
Author: Mircea Eliade
35. "After a few mouthfuls of moon-flavored air, even the stubbornly drowsy can find themselves wide-eyed.. All the normal noises of life were gone, leaving behind the secretive sounds, the shy sounds, the whispers and conversations of moss disputing with grass over some soft piece of earth, or the hummingbird snoring."
Author: N.D. Wilson
36. "Spune-mi, daca te-as prinde-ntr-o zisi ti-as saruta talpa piciorului,nu-i asa ca ai schiopata putin, dupa aceea,de teama sa nu-mi strivesti sarutul?"
Author: Nichita Stănescu
37. "Asteptarea ne da iluzia ca facem ceva asteptand, cand, de fapt, nu facem altceva decat sa murim suportabil, putin cate putin…"
Author: Octavian Paler
38. "Substituirile risipisera oare senzatia absentei trupului, despre care vorbea la început? Câtusi de putin. Ea continua sa simta, din cauza persistentei pierderii proprioceptiunii, ca trupul ei e mort, nereal, ca nu este al ei - nu poate pune stapânire pe propriul ei trup. Nu stie cum sa descrie aceasta stare, gaseste doar analogii derivate din alte simturi: «Simt ca trupul meu e orb simut fata de el însusi... nu are simtul de sine» - acestea sunt vorbele ei."
Author: Oliver Sacks
39. "Saying the Washington Post is just a newspaper is like saying Rasputin was just a country priest."
Author: Pat Buchanan
40. "It is very unhappy, but too late to be helped, the discovery we have made, that we exist. That discovery is called the Fall of Man. Ever afterwards, we suspect our instruments. We have learned that we do not see directly, but mediately, and that we have no means of correcting these colored and distorting lenses which we are, or of computing the amount of their errors. Perhaps these subject-lenses have a creative power; perhaps there are no objects. Once we lived in what we saw; now, the rapaciousness of this new power, which threatens to absorb all things, engages us. Nature, art, persons, letters, religions—objects, successively tumble in, and God is but one of its ideas."
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
41. "Gregory Rasputin, his bloodstream filled with poison, his body punctured by bullets, had died by drowning."
Author: Robert K. Massie
42. "Without Rasputin, there could have been no Lenin." Alexander Derensky, quoted in "Nicholas and Alexandra."
Author: Robert K. Massie
43. "There would be no Lenin without Rasputin."
Author: Robert K. Massie
44. "The utility model of computing - computing resources delivered over the network in much the same way that electricity or telephone service reaches our homes and offices today - makes more sense than ever."
Author: Scott McNealy
45. "I think computing power is ready to do 3D justice. It was great for shooters and racing games in the past, but I didn't think it was right for strategy games."
Author: Sid Meier
46. "The nearer you approach to God, the less you reason and argue. When you attain Him, then all sounds—all reasoning and disputing—come to an end. Then you go into samadhi—sleep—, into communion with God in silence."
Author: Sri Ramakrishna
47. "Future is mobile computing - smartphones and tablets are just elements of it. The industry is on the verge of a whole new paradigm."
Author: Thorstein Heins
48. "Esti singur in vartejul suferintei tale si daca vrei sa iesi trebuie sa tragi aer in piept si sa te scufunzi pana se sfarseste. Mai degraba iubeste-o pana cand iubirea ti se face apa si se scurge prin toti porii. Iubeste-o in absenta. Va fi ca si cum te-ai arunca de nebun intr-un zid. De sute, de mii de ori. Neclintit, zidul iti va rupe oasele, pielea ti-o vei zdreli, iti vei sfasia hainele pana cand te vei fi prelins in praful de la baza lui. Un somn lung te va cuprinde, apoi te vei trezi ca dupa un cosmar pe care vei incerca sa-l rememorezi. Soarele diminetii nu-ti va da timp si vei uita. Cu fiecare zi care va trece vei mai fi uitat putin cate putin...Vindeca-te singur. E tot ce poti face pentru tine."
Author: Tudor Chirilă
49. "Russia under President Putin is less democratic and less free today than when he assumed office. If Russia cannot fulfill its obligation to the G-8 and maintain a high standard of democratic governance then its membership should be suspended."
Author: Vito Fossella
50. "The I.B.M. machine has no ethic of its own; what it does is enable one or two people to do the computing work that formerly required many more people. If people often use it stupidly, it's their stupidity, not the machine's, and a return to the abacus would not exorcise the failing. People can be treated as drudges just as effectively without modern machines."
Author: William H. Whyte
