Famous quotes containing the words inquiry and/or systems:

    The philosophic spirit of inquiry may be traced to brute curiosity, and that to the habit of examining all things in search of food.
    W. Winwood Reade (1838–1875)

    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)
