„Given for one instant an intelligence which could comprehend all the forces“

—  Pierre-Simon Laplace French mathematician and astronomer 1749 - 1827
Context: Given for one instant an intelligence which could comprehend all the forces by which nature is animated and the respective situation of the beings who compose it—an intelligence sufficiently vast to submit these data to analysis—it would embrace in the same formula the movements of the greatest bodies of the universe and those of the lightest atom; for it, nothing would be uncertain and the future, as the past, would be present to its eyes. The human mind offers, in the perfection which it has been able to give to astronomy, a feeble idea of this intelligence. Its discoveries in mechanics and geometry, added to that of universal gravity, have enabled it to comprehend in the same analytical expressions the past and future states of the system of the world.<!--p.4

„Many have stood their ground and faced the darkness when it comes for them. Fewer come for the darkness and force it to face them.“

—  Eliezer Yudkowsky American blogger, writer, and artificial intelligence researcher 1979
Context: "Many boys and girls are heroes in their dreams," Dumbledore said quietly. He did not look at any of the other girls, only at her. "Fewer in the waking world. Many have stood their ground and faced the darkness when it comes for them. Fewer come for the darkness and force it to face them. It is a hard life, sometimes lonely, often short. I have told none to refuse that calling, but neither would I wish to increase their number." Ch. 70 http://hpmor.com/chapter/70
