#1163 Bertrand Russell

Can a society in which thought and technique are scientific persist for a long period, as, for example, ancient Egypt persisted, or does it necessarily contain within itself forces which must bring either decay or explosion? .

Oscar Wilde Quotes about society
#1754 Jean Paul Sartre

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about society
#1870 Jean Paul Sartre

I was not the one to invent lies: they were created in a society divided by class and each of us inherited lies when we were born. It is not by refusing to lie that we will abolish lies: it is by eradicating class by any means necessary. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about society
#1880 Jean Paul Sartre

I know only one Church: it is the society of men. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about society
#3325 George Bernard Shaw

Just as the liar's punishment is, not in the least that he is not believed, but that he cannot believe any one else; so a guilty society can more easily be persuaded that any apparently innocent act is guilty than that any apparently guilty act is innocent. .

George Bernard Shaw Quotes about society
#4502 Ralph Waldo Emerson

In this distribution of functions, the scholar is the delegated intellect. In the right state, he is, Man Thinking. In the degenerate state, when the victim of society, he tends to become a mere thinker, or, still worse, the parrot of other men's thinking. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about society
#4503 Ralph Waldo Emerson

The state of society is one in which the members have suffered amputation from the trunk, and strut about so many walking monsters,—a good finger, a neck, a stomach, an elbow, but never a man. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about society
#4626 Ralph Waldo Emerson

We think our civilization near its meridian, but we are yet only at the cock-crowing and the morning star. In our barbarous society the influence of character is in its infancy. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about society

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about society
#5051 Bill Gates

One of the wonderful things about the information highway is that virtual equity is far easier to achieve than real-world equity...We are all created equal in the virtual world and we can use this equality to help address some of the sociological problems that society has yet to solve in the physical world," .

Bill Gates Quotes about society

Mark Twain Quotes about society
#5302 Karl Marx

England has to fulfill a double mission in India: one destructive, the other regenerating – the annihilation of old Asiatic society, and the laying the material foundations of Western society in Asia. .

Karl Marx Quotes about society
#5360 Karl Marx

In place of the bourgeois society, with its classes and class antagonisms, shall we have an association, in which the free development of each is the condition for the free development of all. .

Karl Marx Quotes about society
#5482 Karl Marx

In capitalist society however where social reason always asserts itself onlygreat disturbances may and must constantly occur. .

Karl Marx Quotes about society
#6009 Robert H. Jackson

The priceless heritage of our society is the unrestricted constitutional right of each member to think as he will. Thought control is a copyright of totalitarianism, and we have no claim to it. It is not the function of the government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error. We could justify any censorship only when the censors are better shielded against error than the censored. .

Robert H. Jackson Quotes about society
#6089 Pierre Trudeau

There is no such thing as a model or ideal Canadian. What could be more absurd than the concept of an "all Canadian" boy or girl? A society which emphasizes uniformity is one which creates intolerance and hate. .

Pierre Trudeau Quotes about society
#6119 Pierre Trudeau

As against the "invisible hand" of , there has to be a visible hand of politicians whose objective is to have the kind of society that is caring and humane. .

Pierre Trudeau Quotes about society
#6438 Henry David Thoreau

The rush to California, for instance, and the attitude, not merely of merchants, but of philosophers and prophets, so called, in relation to it, reflect the greatest disgrace on mankind. That so many are ready to live by luck, and so get the means of commanding the labor of others less lucky, without contributing any value to society! .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about society
#6822 Adlai Stevenson

My definition of a free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular. .

Adlai Stevenson Quotes about society
#6970 Albert Camus

Don't let them tell us stories. Don't let them say of the man sentenced to"He is going to pay his debt to society," but: "They are going to cut off his head." It looks like nothing. But it does make a little difference. And then there arewho prefer to look theirin the . .

Albert Camus Quotes about society
#7196 Adolf Hitler

It goes without saying that we have no affinities with the Japanese. They're too foreign to us, by their way of living, by their culture. But my feelings against Americanism are feelings of hatred and deep repugnance. I feel myself more akin to any European country, no matter which. Everything about the behaviour of American society reveals that it's half Judaised, and the other half negrified. How can one expect a State like that to hold together—a State where 80 per cent of the revenue is drained away for the public purse—a country where everything is built on the dollar? From this point of view, I consider the British State very much superiour. .

Adolf Hitler Quotes about society
#7518 P. J. O'Rourke

There are just two rules of governance in a free society: Mind your own business. Keep your hands to yourself. Keep your hands to yourself, Bill. Hillary, mind your own business. .

P. J. O'Rourke Quotes about society
#7609 Abraham Maslow

If swindling pays, then it will not stop. The definition of the good society is one in which virtue pays. I can now add a slight variation on this; you cannot have a good society unless virtue pays. But here we get very close to the whole subject of metaneeds, and also of the ideal conditions where dichotomies are resolved and transcended. .

Abraham Maslow Quotes about society
#8161 H. L. Mencken

Here is tragedy—and here is America. For the curse of the country, as well of all democracies, is precisely the fact that it treats its best men as enemies. The aim of our society, if it may be said to have an aim, is to iron them out. The ideal American, in the public sense, is a respectable vacuum. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about society
#8339 Richard Nixon

Riots were also the most virulent symptoms to date of another, and in some ways graver, national disorder—the decline in respect for public authority and the rule of law in America. Far from being a great society, our is becoming a lawless society. .

Richard Nixon Quotes about society
#8340 Richard Nixon

Our opinion-makers have gone too far in promoting the doctrine that when a law is broken, society, not the criminal is to blame. Our teachers, preachers, and politicians have gone too far in advocating the idea that each individual should determine what laws are good and what laws are bad, and that he then should obey the law he likes and disobey the law he dislikes. .

Richard Nixon Quotes about society
#8701 Samuel Johnson

Every state of society is as luxurious as it can be. Men always take the best they can get. .

Samuel Johnson Quotes about society
#9220 Edsger W. Dijkstra

It is not the task of the University to offer what society asks for, but to give what society needs. .

Edsger W. Dijkstra Quotes about society
#9591 Theodore Roosevelt

In every civilized society property rights must be carefully safeguarded; ordinarily, and in the great majority of cases, human rights and property rights are fundamentally and in the long run identical; but when it clearly appears that there is a real conflict between them, human rights must have the upper hand, for property belongs to man and not man to property. .

Theodore Roosevelt Quotes about society
#10102 Benjamin Franklin

Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins. .

Benjamin Franklin Quotes about society
#10111 Benjamin Franklin

Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins. Republics and limited monarchies derive their strength and vigor from a popular examination into the action of the magistrates. .

Benjamin Franklin Quotes about society
#10562 W. H. Auden

In all technologically "advanced" countries, fashion has replaced tradition, so that involuntary membership in a society can no longer provide a feeling of community. .

W. H. Auden Quotes about society
#10605 Karl Popper

If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. .

Karl Popper Quotes about society
#10937 George W. Bush

[W]e're creating... an ownership society in this country, where more Americans than ever will be able to open up their door where they live and say, welcome to my house, welcome to my piece of property. .

George W. Bush Quotes about society
#13723 Thomas Paine

Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived. .

Thomas Paine Quotes about society
#14063 Emily Bront

I am now quite cured of seeking pleasure in society, be it country or town. A sensible man ought to find sufficient company in himself. .

Emily Bront Quotes about society
#15289 John F. Kennedy

This flight was made out in the open with all the possibilities of failure, which would have been damaging to our country's prestige. Because great risks were taken in that regard, it seems to me that we have some right to claim that this open society of ours which risked much, gained much. .

John F. Kennedy Quotes about society
#15641 John F. Kennedy

The quality and spirit of our own society must justify and support our efforts abroad. .

John F. Kennedy Quotes about society
#16848 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

A town that boasts inhabitants like me Can have no lack of good society. .

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Quotes about society
#20433 George Orwell

Acceptance of the Catholic position implies a certain willingness to see the present injustices of society continue... Individual salvation implies liberty, which is always extended by Catholic writers to include the right to private property. But in the stage of industrial development which we have now reached, the right to private property means the right to exploit and torture millions of one's fellow creatures. The Socialist would argue, therefore, that one can only defend property if one is more or less indifferent to economic justice. .

George Orwell Quotes about society
#21842 Nicolas Chamfort

Publicreigns in society becausereigns amongst the stupid. .

Nicolas Chamfort Quotes about society
#21910 Nicolas Chamfort

High society is a poor play, a bad, boring opera, made slightly better by its staging, costumes and scenery. .

Nicolas Chamfort Quotes about society
#22260 John Ralston Saul

In the humanist ideal, the mainstream is where interesting debate, the generating of new ideas and creativity take place. In rational society this mainstream is considered uncontrollable and is therefore made marginal. The centre ground is occupied instead by structures and courtiers. .

John Ralston Saul Quotes about society
#22262 John Ralston Saul

In all earlier civilizations, it should be remembered, commerce was treated as a narrow activity and by no means the senior sector in society. .

John Ralston Saul Quotes about society
