Famous quotes containing the words systems, flash and/or file:

    In all systems of theology the devil figures as a male person.... Yes, it is women who keep the church going.
    Don Marquis (1878–1937)

    Tom: All right, boys. C’mon. Why don’t you say I’m a yellow belly and a big mouth at that?
    Shep: You yellow? Who thinks you’re yellow? Did you hear what he said? A guy who’s got the nerve to marry? That’s more than Flash Gordon ever did.
    Billy Wilder (b. 1906)

    Barbara Howar (b. 1934)
