„The original question, 'Can machines think?' I believe to be too meaningless to deserve discussion.“

„Instruction tables will have to be made up by mathematicians with computing experience and perhaps a certain puzzle-solving ability. There need be no real danger of it ever becoming a drudge, for any processes that are quite mechanical may be turned over to the machine itself.“

"Proposed Electronic Calculator" (1946), a report for National Physical Laboratory, Teddington; published in A. M. Turing's ACE Report of 1946 and Other Papers (1986), edited by B. E. Carpenter and R. W. Doran, and in The Collected Works of A. M. Turing (1992), edited by D. C. Ince, Vol. 3.

„Presumably the child-brain is something like a note-book as one buys it from the stationer's. Rather little mechanism, and lots of blank sheets.“

„A man provided with paper, pencil, and rubber, and subject to strict discipline, is in effect a universal machine.“

„May not machines carry out something which ought to be described as thinking but which is very different from what a man does?“

„Science is a differential equation. Religion is a boundary condition.“

„The idea behind digital computers may be explained by saying that these machines are intended to carry out any operations which could be done by a human computer.“

„[T]he m-configuration may be changed.“

„The machine may also change the square which is being scanned, but only by shifting it one place to right or left.“

On Computable Numbers, with an Application to the Entscheidungsproblem (1936)

„The "scanned symbol" is the only one of which the machine is... "directly aware."“

—  Alan Turing, Computable Numbers

However, by altering its m-configuration the machine can effectively remember some of the symbols which it has "seen" (scanned) previously.
On Computable Numbers, with an Application to the Entscheidungsproblem (1936)

„The machine is supplied with a "tape" (the analogue of paper) running through it, and divided into sections (called "squares") each capable of bearing a "symbol."“
