Irish Culture quotes by Frederick Buechner
#13. We are above all things loved--that is the good news of the gospel--and loved not just the way we turn up on Sundays in our best clothes and on our best behavior and with our best feet forward, but loved as we alone know ourselves to be, the weakest and shabbiest of what we are along with the strongest and gladdest. To come together as people who believe that just maybe this gospel is actually true should be to come together like people who have just won the Irish Sweepstakes. It should have us throwing our arms around each other like people who have just discovered that every single man and woman in those pews is not just another familiar or unfamiliar face but is our long-lost brother and our long-lost sister because despite the fact that we have all walked in different gardens and knelt at different graves, we have all, humanly speaking, come from the same place and are heading out into the same blessed mystery that awaits us all. This is the joy that is so apt to be missing, and missing not just from church but from our own lives--the joy of not just managing to believe at least part of the time that it is true that life is holy, but of actually running into that holiness head-on. #Quote by Frederick Buechner
Irish Culture quotes by Alan W. Watts
#14. If you read the literature of the great religions, time and time again you come across descriptions of what is usually referred to as "spiritual experience." You will find that in all the various traditions this modality of spiritual experience seems to be the same, whether it occurs in the Christian West, the Islamic Middle East, the Hindu world of Asia, or the Buddhist world. In each culture, it is quite definitely the same experience, and it is characterized by the transcendence of individuality and by a sensation of being one with the total energy of the universe. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Irish Culture quotes by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
#15. The days are gone when a country can issue orders to other peoples. Today, mankind needs culture, ideas and logic. #Quote by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Irish Culture quotes by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
#18. The people who believe themselves to be on the left, and who defend the agents of Islam in the name of tolerance and culture, are being rightwing. Not just rightwing. Extreme rightwing. I don't understand how you can be so upset about the Christian right and just ignore the Islamic right. I'm talking about equality. #Quote by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Irish Culture quotes by Pope Benedict XVI

Irish Culture quotes by Beatrice Hanssen
#24. Benjamin does attempt to decode their subjective experience, but he does this within social and historical limits, insisting that subjects inhabiting capitalist modernity, exposed to the workings of commodity fetishism, have become objects, objectified, susceptible to processes of commodification (of their labour-power, of the culture they consume). #Quote by Beatrice Hanssen
Irish Culture quotes by Leah Busque
#25. Startups need to focus on building a foundation for their company culture early, and then they need to revisit it often. Every time a hire is made, a feature is launched, a Facebook status is updated, a press interview is given, a round of financing is raised, or a meeting is held, culture should be part of the decision-making process. #Quote by Leah Busque
Irish Culture quotes by Oliver Markus Malloy
#26. If everything Fox News says about liberals were actually true, I'd hate liberals too. #Quote by Oliver Markus Malloy
Irish Culture quotes by Roland Merullo
#27. There is...a golden alpine field within each of you, a place where you are bathed in approval, not because of anything particular you have done, but simply because of your own sacred nature. If you had a president who could show you the route to that place, what a difference it would make in your lives, and in the culture of the world! #Quote by Roland Merullo
Irish Culture quotes by Rachel C. Weingarten
#28. There's much talk in popular culture about finding

ear 24 hours a day you're somehow missing out on
life. #Quote by Rachel C. Weingarten
Irish Culture quotes by John F. Kerry

Irish Culture quotes by Larry Bakersfield
#30. Hip hop is expression..our roots and culture..Its your duty to contribute uniqueness to this artform. Desire of bringing somethin new, improved, witty and soul touching is what bein an m.c. is all about.

Bein an m.c. takes originality, style, imagination, delivery, intelligence and presence. #Quote by Larry Bakersfield
Irish Culture quotes by Stella Adler
#31. We are in danger, all of us, and I will give you an example why - a journalist I knew years ago. He was a good journalist. He went around the world and recorded what he saw and came to various conclusions. He said, Paris is this and London is that - and Greece is worth a couple of days. He felt two days was enough to give him an understanding of Greece. What that statement reveals is that the basis of our Western culture now, and of professional man, is middle-class. The middle class makes statements and knows nothing. You and I are the middle class and must think of ourselves as middle-class. We are middleclass actors, middle-class journalists, middle-class plumbers and morticians. The creation of the modern theater took a genius like Ibsen. #Quote by Stella Adler
Irish Culture quotes by Xavi
#32. I've no regrets at all, but I still think at times that I would have loved to play in England. You live football over there; it's a great culture. People respect you more; it's more difficult to find respect in Spain. There is more criticism here. #Quote by Xavi
Irish Culture quotes by Bill Hicks
#33. If you want to understand a society, take a good look at the drugs it uses. And what can this tell you about American culture? Well, look at the drugs we use. Except for pharmaceutical poison, there are essentially only two drugs that Western civilization tolerates: Caffeine from Monday to Friday to energize you enough to make you a productive member of society, and alcohol from Friday to Monday to keep you too stupid to figure out the prison that you are living in. #Quote by Bill Hicks
Irish Culture quotes by Fiona Shaw
#34. To be honest I live among the English and have always found them to be very honest in their business dealings. They are noble, hard-working and anxious to do the right thing. But joy eludes them, they lack the joy that the Irish have. #Quote by Fiona Shaw
Irish Culture quotes by Rebekah Elizabeth Gamble
#35. Being equal does not mean being the same. #Quote by Rebekah Elizabeth Gamble
Irish Culture quotes by Frank Rich
#36. Feckless as it was for Bush to ask Americans to go shopping after 9/11, we all too enthusiastically followed his lead, whether we were wealthy, working-class or in between. We spent a decade feasting on easy money, don't-pay-as-you-go consumerism and a metastasizing celebrity culture. #Quote by Frank Rich
Irish Culture quotes by G. Frank Lawlis
#37. Giving and receiving love is vital to human existence. It is the glue that binds couples, families, communities, cultures, and nations. #Quote by G. Frank Lawlis
Irish Culture quotes by Jeff Chain
#38. If blues culture had developed under the conditions of oppressive, forced labor, hip-hop culture would arise from the conditions of no work #Quote by Jeff Chain
Irish Culture quotes by John Updike
#39. Chinese food in Texas is the best Chinese food in the United States except Boston. #Quote by John Updike
Irish Culture quotes by Tim O'Reilly

Irish Culture quotes by Mary Beard
#41. One of its (civilisations) most powerful weapons has always been 'barbarity': 'we' know that 'we' are civilised by contrasting ourselves with those we deem to be uncivilised, with those who do not -or cannot be trusted to - share our values. Civilisation is a process of exclusion as well as inclusion. The boundary between 'us' and 'them' may be an internal one (for much of world history the idea of a 'civilised woman' has been a contradiction in terms), or an external one, as the word 'barbarian' suggests; it was originally a derogatory and ethnocentric ancient Greek term for foreigners you could not understand, because they spoke in an incomprehensible babble: 'bar-bar-bar ...' The inconvenient truth, of course, is that so-called 'barbarians' may be no more than those with a different view from ourselves of what it is to be civilised, and of what matters in human culture. In the end, one person's barbarity is another person's civilisation. #Quote by Mary Beard
Irish Culture quotes by Sinclair Lewis
#42. We can go back to the Dark Ages! The crust of learning and good manners and tolerance is so thin! It would just take a few thousand big shells and gas bombs to wipe out all the eager young men, and all the libraries and historical archives and patent offices, all the laboratories and art galleries, all the castles and Periclean temples and Gothic cathedrals, all the cooperative stores and motor factories - every storehouse of learning. No inherent reason why Sissy's grandchildren - if anybody's grandchildren will survive at all - shouldn't be living in caves and heaving rocks at catamounts. #Quote by Sinclair Lewis
Irish Culture quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#43. The Greek culture of the Sophists had developed out of all the Greek instincts; it belongs to the culture of the Periclean age as necessarily as Plato does not: it has its predecessors in Heraclitus, in Democritus, in the scientific types of the old philosophy; it finds expression in, e.g., the high culture of Thucydides. And – it has ultimately shown itself to be right: every advance in epistemological and moral knowledge has reinstated the Sophists – Our contemporary way of thinking is to a great extent Heraclitean, Democritean, and Protagorean: it suffices to say it is Protagorean, because Protagoras represented a synthesis of Heraclitus and Democritus. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Irish Culture quotes by Joel Salatin
#44. Our culture doesn't ask about preserving the essence of pig; it just asks how can we grow them faster, fatter, bigger, and cheaper. We know that's not a noble goal. #Quote by Joel Salatin
Irish Culture quotes by Anna Paquin
#45. I don't think a naked body is particularly shocking or interesting ... It's not the culture I was raised in. I was not brought up in the United States. I don't share the [attitude] that you can have graphic violence, but - God forbid - you see someone's nipples. #Quote by Anna Paquin
Irish Culture quotes by Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips
#46. From the most ancient civilizations to the most primitive of modern societies, religions with God at their centre have formed the foundation of human culture. In fact, the denial of God's existence (atheism) throughout history was limited to a few individuals until the rise of communism in the 20th century... #Quote by Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips
Irish Culture quotes by William Butler Yeats
#47. And the merry love the fiddle, and the merry love to dance. #Quote by William Butler Yeats
Irish Culture quotes by Mark Graban
#48. Our own attitude is that we are charged with discovering the best way of doing everything. #Quote by Mark Graban
Irish Culture quotes by Arianna Huffington
#49. Creating the culture of burnout is opposite to creating a culture of sustainable creativity. This is something that needs to be taught in business schools. This mentality needs to be introduced as a leadership and performance-enhancing tool. #Quote by Arianna Huffington
Irish Culture quotes by Ken Robinson
#50. Public schools were not only created in the interests of industrialism - they were created in the image of industrialism. In many ways, they reflect the factory culture they were designed to support. This is especially true in high schools, where school systems base education on the principles of the assembly line and the efficient division of labor. Schools divide the curriculum into specialist segments: some teachers install math in the students, and others install history. They arrange the day into standard units of time, marked out by the ringing of bells, much like a factory announcing the beginning of the workday and the end of breaks. Students are educated in batches, according to age, as if the most important thing they have in common is their date of manufacture. They are given standardized tests at set points and compared with each other before being sent out onto the market. I realize this isn't an exact analogy and that it ignores many of the subtleties of the system, but it is close enough. #Quote by Ken Robinson
Irish Culture quotes by Cheryl Clarke
#51. For a woman to be a lesbian in a male-supremacist, capitalist, misogynist, racist, homophobic, imperialist culture, such as that of North America, is an act of resistance. #Quote by Cheryl Clarke
Irish Culture quotes by Hans D. Sluga
#52. The loss of a hierarchy of values is dangerous for two reasons, as Nietzsche sees it. Without such a hierarchy values prove anchorless, unstable, and shifting. It is not that all values have disappeared under nihilistic conditions; we may, on the contrary, witness a proliferation of competing values, but the relation of these values to each other is unsecured. And from this follows a second danger that without a hierarchy of values there can be no human greatness. We will not be capable of achievements that require deep, long-term, unwavering commitment. We can see what Nietzsche has in mind from our own contemporary culture which displays precisely such a loss of a hierarchy of values and is thus already nihilistic in Nietzsche's sense. In this culture of ours the most trite and trivial counts in consequence as much as the greatest and most profound. Triviality itself has, indeed, become a value for us and all values have become trivial. What is acclaimed today is discarded tomorrow. Our values have been reduced to fashions and as such to something of no consequence. #Quote by Hans D. Sluga
Irish Culture quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#53. And if something is only itself, it doesn't particularly matter. #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
