Ian McEwan
“Europe was not simply a union that chiefly benefited large corporations. The history of the continental member states was vastly different from our own. They had suffered violent revolutions, invasions, occupations and dictatorships. They were therefore only too willing to submerge their identities in a common cause directed from Brussels. We, on the other hand, had lived unconquered for nearly a thousand years. Soon, we would live freely again.”
Ian McEwan, Machines Like Me

Ian McEwan
“It’s about machines like me and people like you and our future together…the sadness that’s to come. It will happen. With improvements over time…we’ll surpass you…and outlast you…even as we love you.”
Ian McEwan, Machines Like Me

Ian McEwan
“As Schopenhauer said about free will, you can choose whatever you desire, but you’re not free to choose your desires.”
Ian McEwan, Machines Like Me

Marshall Thornton
“Social?” I was tempted to say, “Very,” but gave him my social security number instead. “Date of birth?” “April 25, 1948.” “Place of birth?” “Chicago.” “Sex?” “You’re not my type.” He gave me another look and then put an M in that box. For good measure he put a C in the box for race. Caucasian.”
Marshall Thornton, Fade Out

Ian McEwan
“other minds, must continue to fascinate us. As artificial people became more like us, then became us, then became more than us, we could never tire of them. They were bound to surprise us. They might fail us in ways that were beyond our imagining. Tragedy was a possibility, but not boredom.”
Ian McEwan, Machines Like Me
