The Last Question -- Isaac Asimov

"Whats entropy, daddy?" shrilled Jerrodette II.

"Entropy, little sweet, is just a word which means the amount of running-down of the universe. Everything runs down, you know, like your little walkie-talkie robot, remember?"

"Cant you just put in a new power-unit, like with my robot?"

The stars are the power-units, dear. Once theyre gone, there are no more power-units."
