I, Robot

Isaac Asimov takes readers on an adventure into the not-so-distant future where man and machine struggle to redefine life, love, and consciousness.

Favorite quotes from the book:

There was a time when humanity faced the universe alone and without a friend. Now he has creatures to help him; stronger creatures than himself, more faithful, more useful, and absolutely devoted to him. Mankind is no longer alone.

One, a robot may not injure a human being, or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.”

“Two,” continued Powell, “a robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.”

“And three, a robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.”

People say ‘It’s as plain as the nose on your face.’ But how much of the nose on your face can you see, unless someone holds a mirror up to you?
