Governments, systems, ideologies come and go, but it is humanity which remains.
Gravitational systems are the ashes of prior electrical systems.
We shall therefore assume the complete physical equivalence of a gravitational field and a corresponding acceleration of the reference system.
Once the Government Accountability Office did a review of food safety systems in other countries and found many things about those food safety systems that were better than ours [American].
The wealth of the nation is its air, water, soil, forests, minerals, rivers, lakes, oceans, scenic beauty, wildlife habitats and biodiversity... that's all there is. That's the whole economy. That's where all the economic activity and jobs come from. These biological systems are the sustaining wealth of the world.
Just as the system of the sun, planets and comets is put in motion by the forces of gravity, and its parts persist in their motions, so the smaller systems of bodies also seem to be set in motion by other forces and their particles to be variously moved in relation to each other and, especially, by the electric force.
Rhetoric completes the tools of learning. Dialectic zeros in on the logic of things, of particular systems of thought or subjects. Rhetoric takes the next grand step and brings all these subjects together into one whole.
Because we didn't cooperate with China, we gave them motivation to develop their own capability. You know, they developed a very capable rocket system, very capable spacecraft. And if we don't cooperate with them in the future, they're going to develop more capable systems. If we're working together on a highly visible project, there is going to be much less, or there is going to be motivation for each country to not get into a conflict or any kind of tension in the military sense.
Your remarks upon chemical notation with the variety of systems which have arisen, &c., &c., had almost stirred me up to regret publicly that such hindrances to the progress of science should exist. I cannot help thinking it a most unfortunate thing that men who as experimentalists & philosophers are the most fitted to advance the general cause of science & knowledge should by promulgation of their own theoretical views under the form of nomenclature, notation, or scale, actually retard its progress.
Philosophical systems are wholly true for their founders only.
It's a tiny revolution to express yourself fully and be who you want to be, especially when systems tell you that you can't. I've realized how powerful it is for me to just discuss issues with young people and begin conversations.
Systems permit ordinary people to achieve extraordinary results predictably.
Theres a certain logic to systems, and that logic is fairly self-evident. Its very straightforward, usually. It might take a little research, it might take a little bit of industry to prize it out, but its there to be seen.
Almost all systems of economic thought are premised on the idea of continued economic growth, which would be fine and dandy if we lived on an infinite planet, but there's this small, niggling, inconvenient fact that the planet is, in fact, finite, and that, unlike economic theory, it is governed by physical and biological reality
They're handicapped by old systems. They have personnel dealing with paperwork that can be handled electronically.
Microsoft has a monopoly over the desktop operating systems.
Laws, religions, creeds, and systems of ethics, instead of making society better than its best unit, make it worse than its average unit, because they are never up to date.
George Bernard Shaw
I deeply believe in pluralism. I believe in the close proximity of multiple systems or agnostic systems.
