Famous quotes containing the word complex:

    Young children constantly invent new explanations to account for complex processes. And since their inventions change from week to week, furnishing the “correct” explanation is not quite so important as conveying a willingness to discuss the subject. Become an “askable parent.”
    Ruth Formanek (20th century)

    Specialization is a feature of every complex organization, be it social or natural, a school system, garden, book, or mammalian body.
    Catharine R. Stimpson (b. 1936)
