Unlike human beings, computers possess the truly profound stupidity of the inanimate.
The place of the worst barbarism is that modern forest that makes use of us, this forest of chimneys and bayonets, machines and weapons, of strange inanimate beasts that feed on human flesh. - Amadeo Bordiga
Of all the inanimate objects, of all men's creations, books are the nearest to us for they contain our very thoughts, our ambitions, our indignations, our illusions, our fidelity to the truth, and our persistent leanings to error. But most of all they resemble us in their precious hold on life. - Joseph Conrad
If inanimate objects are left to stand in their world, and are not invited out to mingle with our sense of self, they will quietly console and delight us. But to bind possessions up closely with the mind is less than fair to both. - Kennedy Fraser
I feel like these characters, these places, these beings and plots, and even these inanimate objects are counting on me for survival. It’s my responsibility to reveal them to the world, to show my readers the names of these things, to show them their histories and stories. - Nicholas Trandahl
The goal of all inanimate objects is to resist man and ultimately defeat him. - Russell Baker
Inanimate objects are classified scientifically into three major categories - those that don't work, those that break down and those that get lost. - Russell Baker
Never fight an inanimate object. - P. J. O'Rourke
