Famous quotes containing the words system and/or prison:

    Television is an excellent system when one has nothing to lose, as is the case with a nomadic and rootless country like the United States, but in Europe the affect of television is that of a bulldozer which reduces culture to the lowest possible denominator.
    Marc Fumaroli (b. 1932)

    So must pure lovers’ souls descend
    T’affections, and to faculties,
    Which sense may reach and apprehend,
    Else a great Prince in prison lies.
    John Donne (c. 1572–1631)
