### Famous quotes containing the word systems:

“Before anything else, we need a new age of Enlightenment. Our present political *systems* must relinquish their claims on truth, justice and freedom and have to replace them with the search for truth, justice, freedom and reason.”

—Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921–1990)

“We have done scant justice to the reasonableness of cannibalism. There are in fact so many and such excellent motives possible to it that mankind has never been able to fit all of them into one universal scheme, and has accordingly contrived various diverse and contradictory *systems* the better to display its virtues.”

—Ruth Benedict (1887–1948)

“The only people who treasure *systems* are those whom the whole truth evades, who want to catch it by the tail. A system is just like truth’s tail, but the truth is like a lizard. It will leave the tail in your hand and escape; it knows that it will soon grow another tail.”

—Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev (1818–1883)
