„It would be a considerable invention indeed, that of a machine able to mimic speech, with its sounds and articulations. … I think it is not impossible.“

—  Leonhard Euler Swiss mathematician 1707 - 1783

La construction d'une machine propre à exprimer tous les sons de nos paroles , avec toutes les articulations , seroit sans-doute une découverte bien importante. … La chose ne me paroît pas impossible.

„I used to be coy about it, like me guitar playing. But if there's such a thing as genius — I am one.“

—  John Lennon English singer and songwriter 1940 - 1980

John Lennon interview with Rolling Stone magazine (December 1970)
Kontext: When I was about twelve, I used to think I must be a genius, but nobody's noticed. Either I'm a genius or I'm mad, which is it? "No," I said, "I can't be mad because nobody's put me away; therefore I'm a genius." Genius is a form of madness and we're all that way. But I used to be coy about it, like me guitar playing. But if there's such a thing as genius — I am one. And if there isn't, I don't care.

„And that's life, then: things as they are,
This buzzing of the blue guitar.“

—  Wallace Stevens American poet 1879 - 1955

The Man With the Blue Guitar (1937)
Kontext: So that's life, then: things are they are?
It picks its way on the blue guitar.
A million people on one string?
And all their manner in the thing,
And all their manner, right and wrong,
And all their manner, weak and strong?
And that's life, then: things as they are,
This buzzing of the blue guitar.

„I know more than I can express in words, and the little I can express would not have been expressed, had I not known more.“

—  Vladimir Nabokov, kniha Strong Opinions

Zdroj: Strong Opinions (1973), p. 45
Kontext: To be quite candid — and what I am going to say now is something I have never said before, and I hope that it provokes a salutary chill — I know more than I can express in words, and the little I can express would not have been expressed, had I not known more.
