### Famous quotes containing the word systems:

“No civilization ... would ever have been possible without a framework of stability, to provide the wherein for the flux of change. Foremost among the stabilizing factors, more enduring than customs, manners and traditions, are the legal *systems* that regulate our life in the world and our daily affairs with each other.”

—Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)

“The skylines lit up at dead of night, the air- conditioning *systems* cooling empty hotels in the desert and artificial light in the middle of the day all have something both demented and admirable about them. The mindless luxury of a rich civilization, and yet of a civilization perhaps as scared to see the lights go out as was the hunter in his primitive night.”

—Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

“Not out of those, on whom *systems* of education have exhausted their culture, comes the helpful giant to destroy the old or to build the new, but out of unhandselled savage nature, out of terrible Druids and Berserkirs, come at last Alfred and Shakespeare.”

—Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
