Famous quotes containing the word complex:

    All propaganda or popularization involves a putting of the complex into the simple, but such a move is instantly deconstructive. For if the complex can be put into the simple, then it cannot be as complex as it seemed in the first place; and if the simple can be an adequate medium of such complexity, then it cannot after all be as simple as all that.
    Terry Eagleton (b. 1943)

    I have met charming people, lots who would be charming if they hadn’t got a complex about the British and everyone has pleasant and cheerful manners and I like most of the American voices. On the other hand I don’t believe they have any God and their hats are frightful. On balance I prefer the Arabs.
    Freya Stark (1893–1993)

    It’s a complex fate, being an American, and one of the responsibilities it entails is fighting against a superstitious valuation of Europe.
    Henry James (1843–1916)
