### Famous quotes containing the words systems, complex and/or base:

“Our little *systems* have their day;

They have their day and cease to be:

They are but broken lights of thee,

And thou, O Lord, art more than they.”

—Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

“Uneducated people are unfortunate in that they do grasp *complex* issues, educated people, on the other hand, often do not understand simplicity, which is a far greater misfortune.”

—Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

“I have always heard, Sancho, that doing good to *base* fellows is like throwing water into the sea.”
