Karel Capek

was one of the most influential Czech writers of the 20th century
Robots of the world, you are ordered to exterminate the human race. Do not spare the men. Do not spare the women. Preserve only the factories, railroads, machines, mines, and raw materials. Destroy everything else. Then return to work. Work must not cease.More Karel Capek quotes [09/07/2011 10:09:29]
