### Famous quotes containing the word systems:

“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)

“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 geometry of landscape and situation seems to create its own *systems* of time, the sense of a dynamic element which is cinematising the events of the canvas, translating a posture or ceremony into dynamic terms. The greatest movie of the 20th century is the Mona Lisa, just as the greatest novel is Gray’s Anatomy.”

—J.G. (James Graham)
