Robot...As a word, robot is a relative newcomer to the English language. It was the from Czech playwright, novelist and journalist named Karel Čapek (1880-1938) who introduced it in his 1920 hit play, R.U.R., or Rossum's Universal Robots.
Cyborg...short for "cybernetic organism".
Quantum...The word "quantum" comes from the Latin "quantus," for "how much."
Nanotechnology ...Nano is a prefix meaning "extremely small." When quantifiable, it translates to one-billionth, as in the nanosecond . Nano comes from the Greek word "nanos," meaning "dwarf."

A bed of roses;
And I will make thee beds of roses
And a thousand fragrant posies,
A cap of flowers, and a kirtle
Embroidered all with leaves of myrtle;
Bushed; The last straw; In a nutshell; Through the grapevine.

Conversation in a business meeting:
Bob: Well, is Lewis going to play ball or are we going to strike out on this deal? Jessica: The latest locker talk is that our game plan is a real contender for the contract. Bob: Yeah, the other team has two strikes against it after they fumbled last week. Jessica: They had a great chance of scoring but I think Lewis thought they weren't up to scratch on some of the details.

Welcome, gentlemen! I have seen the day 16
That I have worn a visor, and could tell
A whispering tale in a fair lady’s ear
Such as would please; ’tis gone, ’tis gone, ’tis gone.
