Programmers’ favourite quote

In English:

"It’s done, the great act of creation.
The maker rests. The wheel’s in motion
And will rotate upon its axle for
A hundred million years before
A single cog wears out."

Imre Madách: The Tragedy of Man (Scene 1; The Lord)
(translation of George Szirtes)
[full text, wikipedia]

Note: in the high school, I wrote my school-leaving exam on this topic :)


Magyarul (the original Hungarian version):

"Be van fejezve a nagy mű, igen.
A gép forog, az alkotó pihen.
Évmilliókig eljár tengelyén,
Mig egy kerékfogát ujítni kell."

Madách Imre: Az ember tragédiája (Első szín; Az Úr)
[teljes szöveg, wikipedia]

Megjegyzés: annak idején ebből írtam az érettségit :)
