Famous quotes containing the words complex, victory and/or base:

    Specialization is a feature of every complex organization, be it social or natural, a school system, garden, book, or mammalian body.
    Catharine R. Stimpson (b. 1936)

    It is a conquest when we can lift ourselves above the annoyances of circumstances over which we have no control; but it is a greater victory when we can make those circumstances our helpers,—when we can appreciate the good there is in them. It has often seemed to me as if Life stood beside me, looking me in the face, and saying, “Child, you must learn to like me in the form in which you see me, before I can offer myself to you in any other aspect.”
    Lucy Larcom (1824–1893)

    Were I as base as is the lowly plain,
    And you, my Love, as high as heaven above,
    Yet should the thoughts of me, your humble swain,
    Ascend to heaven in honour of my love.
    Joshua Sylvester (1561–1618)
