Quotes About Computer Education

"Books are better than television, the internet, or the computer for educating and maintaining freedom.Books matter because they state ideas and then attempt to thoroughly prove them. They have an advantage precisely because they slow down the process, allowing the reader to internalize, respond, react and transform. The ideas in books matter because time is taken to establish truth, and because the reader must take the time to consider each idea and either accept it or, if he rejects it, to think through sound reasons for doing so. A nation of people who write and read is a nation with the attention span to earn an education and free society if they choose." - Author: Oliver DeMille

Quotes About Limitations

"If the meaning of life has become doubtful, if ones relations to others and to oneself do not offer security, then fame is one means to silence ones doubts. It has a function to be compared with that of the Egyptian pyramids or the Christian faith in immortality: it elevates ones individual life from its limitations and instability to the plane of indestructability; if ones name is known to ones contemporaries and if one can hope that it will last for centuries, then ones life has meaning and significance by this very reflection of it in the judgments of others." - Author: Erich Fromm
