Also off-topic but the date is fun:

A system is not a head.
Furniture is not people.
All processes and all devices,
will be useless for organizations,
if the heads of the individuals who employ them,
are not properly organized.
And these heads will be organized,
if the same part of the boss's body that directs them
is properly organized.
Just like you can write nonsense
with a latest model typewriter,
nonsense can also be done
with the most perfect systems and devices
meant to help you not to.
Systems, processes, furniture, machines,
are purely auxiliary elements.
The real process is to think.
The fundamental machine is intelligence.
