„Go so far as you can see and when you get there you will always be able to see farther.“

— Zig Ziglar American motivational speaker 1926 - 2012
Context: Go so far as you can see and when you get there you will always be able to see farther. … as you head toward your goals, be prepared to make some slight adjustments to your course. You don't change your decision to go — you do change your direction to get there. p. 164; Variant: When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal; you do not change your decision to get there.

„If we had a reliable way to label our toys good and bad, it would be easy to regulate technology wisely. But we can rarely see far enough ahead to know which road leads to damnation.“

— Freeman Dyson theoretical physicist and mathematician 1923
Context: If we had a reliable way to label our toys good and bad, it would be easy to regulate technology wisely. But we can rarely see far enough ahead to know which road leads to damnation. Whoever concerns himself with big technology, either to push it forward or to stop it, is gambling in human lives. <!-- Pt. 1, Ch. 1

„We fired our cannon 'til the barrel melted down,
So we grabbed an alligator an' we fought another round.“
