John Keats, Endymion (1818), Book I, line 1.
The proliferation of electronic gadgets doesn't necessarily increase the opportunities for learning, it simply increases the opportunity to present information in a variety of ways. We must be careful not to be seduced by the gadgets at the cost of losing sight of the interpersonal.simon gipson
Growth can also involve producing services instead of goods. In particular, a major expansion of public and caring services (like child care, education, elder care, and other life-affirming programs) would generate huge increases in GDP and incomes, with virtually no impact on the environment.
As the blessings of health and fortune have a beginning , so they must also find an end . Everything rises but to fall, and increases but to decay.
Population, when unchecked, increases in geometrical ratio. Subsistence only increases in arithmetical ratio.

Invariably will you find perseverance exemplified as the radical principle in every truly great character. It facilitates, perfects, and consolidates the execution of the plan conceived, and renders profitable its results when attained. By continuing to advance steadily in the same way, light constantly increases, obstacles disappear, efficient habits are confirmed, experience is acquired, the use of the best means is reduced to easy action, and success becomes more sure.elias lyman magoo
Population, when unchecked, increases in a geometrical ratio, Subsistence, increases only in an arithmetical ratio.thomas malthus

As our power over others increases, we become less free; for to retain it, we must make ourselves its servants.john lancaster spalding
As the size of software systems increases, the algorithms and data structures of the computation no longer constitute the major design problems. When systems are constructed from many components, the organization of the overall system the software architecture presents a new set of design problems. This level of design has been addressed in a number of ways including informal diagrams and descriptive terms, module interconnection languages, templates and frameworks for systems that serve the needs of specific domains, and formal models of component integration mechanisms.
