Software is the clay of dreams; everything is possible.
Everything is possible but nothing is free

What a lovely sentence.

I also like Fred Brooks (Mythical Man Month) description of software as a magical incantation. Software can be thought becoming action, as the code you write changes things in the physical world. Brooks also points out that one misplaced word in the incantation can lose the daemon, which turns on the person casting the spell.
