Famous quotes containing the words system and/or writing:

    Society cannot share a common communication system so long as it is split into warring factions.
    Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)

    One can write out of love or hate. Hate tells one a great deal about a person. Love makes one become the person. Love, contrary to legend, is not half as blind, at least for writing purposes, as hate. Love can see the evil and not cease to be love. Hate cannot see the good and remain hate. The writer, writing out of hatred, will, thus, paint a far more partial picture than if he had written out of love.
    Jessamyn West (1902–1984)
