Famous quotes containing the words filing system, system and/or filing:

    Is not the whole world a vast house of assignation of which the filing system has been lost?
    Quentin Crisp (b. 1908)

    The pace of science forces the pace of technique. Theoretical physics forces atomic energy on us; the successful production of the fission bomb forces upon us the manufacture of the hydrogen bomb. We do not choose our problems, we do not choose our products; we are pushed, we are forced—by what? By a system which has no purpose and goal transcending it, and which makes man its appendix.
    Erich Fromm (1900–1980)

    Is not the whole world a vast house of assignation of which the filing system has been lost?
    Quentin Crisp (b. 1908)
