### Famous quotes containing the words architecture, distributed and/or systems:

“All *architecture* is great *architecture* after sunset; perhaps *architecture* is really a nocturnal art, like the art of fireworks.”

—Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

“Indiana was really, I suppose, a Democratic State. It has always been put down in the book as a state that might be carried by a close and careful and perfect organization and a great deal of—[from audience: “soap”Ma reference to purchased votes, the word being followed by laughter].

I see reporters here, and therefore I will simply say that everybody showed a great deal of interest in the occasion, and *distributed* tracts and political documents all through the country.”

—Chester A. Arthur (1829–1886)

“People stress the violence. That’s the smallest part of it. Football is brutal only from a distance. In the middle of it there’s a calm, a tranquility. The players accept pain. There’s a sense of order even at the end of a running play with bodies stewn everywhere. When the *systems* interlock, there’s a satisfaction to the game that can’t be duplicated. There’s a harmony.”

—Don Delillo (b. 1926)
