Fabrizio Valenza Quotes

"Io ero già tutto preso dalla porta e dalla brutta sensazione che mi aveva creato fin dal principio. Era una porta ad arco di fattura toscana, laccata di bianco, elegante e del tutto in sintonia con il colore smorto delle pareti esterne. Però lidea generale conferiva la sensazione di una patina calata sulla casa in una giornata bigia di pioggia e mai più scivolata via. Il particolare che stonava di più con limmagine tutto sommato omogenea del resto erano le due finestrelle di vetro smerigliato. Due quarti di cerchio, disposti luno accanto allaltro allinterno del semicerchio superiore della porta, con gli angoli a novanta gradi rivolti verso lesterno. Sembravano i due occhi opachi di un catatonico."

Quotes About Famous Calculators

"Friedrich Nietzsche, who famously gave us the ‘God is dead phrase was interested in the sources of morality. He warned that the emergence of something (whether an organ, a legal institution, or a religious ritual) is never to be confused with its acquired purpose: ‘Anything in existence, having somehow come about, is continually interpreted anew, requisitioned anew, transformed and redirected to a new purpose. This is a liberating thought, which teaches us to never hold the history of something against its possible applications. Even if computers started out as calculators, that doesnt prevent us from playing games on them. (47) (quoting Nietzsche, the Genealogy of Morals)" - Author: Frans de Waal
