An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





A tool is but the extension of a man's hand, and a machine is but a complex tool. And he that invents a machine augments the power of a man and the well-being of mankind.


Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887, American preacher, orator, writer)


Don't force it... get a bigger hammer.


Arthur Bloch


There is a great satisfaction in building good tools for other people to use.


Freeman Dyson (1923-, British-born American physicist, author)


Man is a tool-using animal. Without tools he is nothing, with tools he is all.


Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881, Scottish philosopher, author)


A worker may be the hammer's master, but the hammer still prevails. A tool knows exactly how it is meant to be handled, while the user of the tool can only have an approximate idea.


Milan Kundera (1929-, Czech author, critic)


O God, thy sea is so great, and my boat is so small.
