Tim Berners Lee technological quotes collection

Some of the great technological quotes from the inventor of the World Wide Web, Sir Timothy John Berners-Lee

The Google algorithm was a significant development. I've had thank-you emails from people whose lives have been saved by information on a medical website or who have found the love of their life on a dating website.

The important thing is the diversity available on the Web.

I basically wrote the code and the specs and documentation for how the client and server talked to each other.

Any good software engineer will tell you that a compiler and an interpreter are interchangeable.

The Mobile Web Initiative is important - information must be made seamlessly available on any device.

Data is a precious thing and will last longer than the systems themselves.

You affect the world by what you browse.

Whatever the device you use for getting your information out, it should be the same information.

Everybody who runs a Web site knows we're not assured of compatibility, and we could end up with a split.

Web pages are designed for people. For the Semantic Web, we need to look at existing databases.

Most larger companies now see that for the market to grow, Web infrastructure must be royalty-free.

That idea of URL was the basic clue to the universality of the Web. That was the only thing I insisted upon.

We shouldn't build a technology to colour, or grey out, what people say. The media in general is balanced, although there are a lot of issues to be addressed that the media rightly pick up on.

The Beatles quotes collection - love and music

To every word of love I heard you whisper, the raindrops seem to play a sweet refrain

I'm happy with my lifestyle, ... I don't have time to reflect on [it].

The love you take is equal to the love you make

For I don't care too much for money,
For money can't buy me love.

All the lonely people, where do they all come from?
All the lonely people, where do they all belong?

Yesterday our troubles seemed so far away, I believe in yesterday.

But tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun

Life goes on within you and without you

Please don't wake me, no don't shake me, leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping.

I'll buy you a diamond ring, my friend If it makes you feel alright
