Famous quotes containing the words systems, wind and/or river:

    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)

    This girl borrowed no dim light of a star
    Nor ever night held her in a dark mesh,
    A slim bloom she stood of the first larkspur,
    A wind of spring fluttered in her white flesh.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    It is from quiet places like this all over the world that the forces accumulate which presently will overbear any attempt to accomplish evil on a large scale. Like the rivulets gathering into the river, and the river into the seas, there come from communities like this streams that fertilize the consciences of men, and it is the conscience of the world that we are trying to place upon the throne which others would usurp.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
