Our Society quotes by Alice Miller
#1. Child abuse is still sanctioned - indeed, held in high regard - in our society as long as it is defined as child-rearing. It is a tragic fact that parents beat their children in order to escape the emotions from how they were treated by their own parents. #Quote by Alice Miller
Our Society quotes by Lisa Ann Walter
#2. Basically, in our society, you can never fix anything enough. The minute you get your head above water about one thing, they let you know that 12 other things about you suck. It's like playing 'Self-Esteem Whack-A-Mole.' #Quote by Lisa Ann Walter
Our Society quotes by Jean Vanier
#3. When we begin to believe that there is greater joy in working with and for others, rather than just for ourselves, then our society will truly become a place of celebration. #Quote by Jean Vanier
Our Society quotes by Nicholas A. Christakis
#4. There are very fundamental reasons we live our lives in social networks, and if we really understood the role they're playing in our society, we would take better care of social networks and find ways to take advantage of their power to improve our society. #Quote by Nicholas A. Christakis
Our Society quotes by Megan McCafferty
#5. Well, I think it's possible to love someone and still be curious about someone else. And I think you should be able to act on that impulse without impunity. But in our society, where monogamy rules despite all the evidence that it doesn't work, a person is demonized for wanting to break from that traditional model of relationships. I think you can love someone, truly love someone, and still be drawn to someone
else. Enough to want to kiss that other person, just to see what it would be like. Or maybe to help confirm that what you've got is better than what else is out there. Because isn't the desire alone a form of betrayal? So what further harm does it do to put those thoughts into action? Ideally, you would be able just to go back to the person you love after you've kissed that other person and discovered it wasn't as
interesting as you thought it would be, which I would imagine would be the case most of the time. And in the event that itis unexpectedly amazing, isn't it better to have experienced that moment of bliss rather than imagine what it could have been like? #Quote by Megan McCafferty
Our Society quotes by Melissa Etheridge
#6. Our society, where we are right now, our minds are junkyards. We watch TV and sit on the computer all day and barely have an original thought. #Quote by Melissa Etheridge
Our Society quotes by Thom Mayne
#7. The huge problem in our society is the enormous ignorance of the ideas that underlie modern art. #Quote by Thom Mayne
Our Society quotes by Edward Bond
#8. Art is the close scrutiny of reality and therefore I put on the stage only those things that I know happen in our society. #Quote by Edward Bond
Our Society quotes by Thomas Vose Daily
#9. The Rosary, especially prayed in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, is a powerful means of spiritual grace. In all of our efforts to promote the sanctity of human life, prayer is our first and strongest resource. May we rely upon the power of our Lord's presence in the Blessed Sacrament and the intercession of His Blessed Mother to guide and help us in fostering a greater respect for human life and an end to abortion in our society ... #Quote by Thomas Vose Daily
Our Society quotes by Josh Mandel
#10. We need to do a top/bottom review of the federal government and for every agency administration bureaucracy that is not called for in the United States Constitution, we have to really ask the question what is its purpose, how many people work there, how much does it cost the taxpayers and what is the value to our society. #Quote by Josh Mandel
Our Society quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#11. When people are broken on the outside, society is taught to never be rude to them. When people are broken on the inside, society is taught to rub happiness in their faces and show them how perfect life should be. When someone has half of an arm, you are not supposed to go up to them and show them how great of an arm wrestler you are. But when someone has a broken mind or a broken soul, you're taught to go up to them and tell them to look for joy in everything. Society has a very long way to go in terms of what it means to heal this world's broken people. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Our Society quotes by Brad Duguid
#12. We want to encourage investors to target businesses that focus on achieving more than just profits - by placing their money into businesses that also positively contribute to social or environmental benefits in Ontario. Angel investors can help social enterprises grow and succeed, and through our partnership with the Network of Angel Organizations and the Impact Angel Alliance, we are making it easier for social ventures and angel investors to connect, contribute, and make our society a better place to live. #Quote by Brad Duguid
Our Society quotes by John Hagee
#13. The battle against good and evil is raging now! Look at your television programming and movie advertisements presenting the occult ... the demonic ... the satanic ... the practice of witchcraft and sorcery in popular books ... the open hostility toward Christianity and the revival of anti-Semitism. The fight is on for the hearts and minds of our children in ours homes, our schools, our universities, and our society. #Quote by John Hagee
Our Society quotes by Helen DeWitt
#14. There is a strange taboo in our society against ending something merely because it is not pleasant
life, love, a conversation, you name it, the etiquette is that you must begin in ignorance & persevere in the face of knowledge, & though I naturally believe that this is profoundly wrong it's not nice to go around constantly offending people. #Quote by Helen DeWitt
Our Society quotes by Warren E. Burger
#15. There can be no doubt that the practice of opening legislative sessions with prayer has become part of the fabric of our society. #Quote by Warren E. Burger
Our Society quotes by Ched Myers
#16. If we are going to talk about how undocumented immigrants impact our society, we ought to first address how our national policies have disrupted their lives. Above all, solidarity with the immigrant poor should seek to know them not as statistics, but as human beings who endure extraordinary hardship and trauma in their struggle just to survive - especially since the structural causes of their impoverishment lie on our side of the border. #Quote by Ched Myers
Our Society quotes by Dorothea Benton Frank
#17. Fortitude is a value missing in our society today. There is a reality about sticking things out for a better day to dawn that is not cliché, but honest-to-God good advice that we should all weigh and consider #Quote by Dorothea Benton Frank
Our Society quotes by Paolo Bacigalupi
#18. I think the fact that we, as writers, don't engage with resource-level questions is a symptom of our society where we just don't know where our stuff comes from. #Quote by Paolo Bacigalupi
Our Society quotes by Daniel Barenboim
#19. But the ear, let us not forget, starts operating on the forty-fifth day of the pregnancy of a woman. Seven and a half months advance over the eye ... (but) what do we do in our society, in our civilisation, to continue this process? #Quote by Daniel Barenboim
Our Society quotes by Adam Carolla
#20. A lot of guys and people in our society think that chicks just love dudes with money. Chicks love dudes who are successful who happen to have money - do you know what I mean? Chicks are attracted to dudes that are doing their own thing. #Quote by Adam Carolla
Our Society quotes by Andrew Linzey
#21. Despite one or two minority appeals our society is not outraged at man's unremitting use of the animal world. Ecologists and environmentalists may talk of "ecological consciousness" or "environmental responsibility" but seldom, if ever, is this responsibility articulated towards other non-human species in particular. #Quote by Andrew Linzey
Our Society quotes by Terence McKenna
#22. Part of what is wrong with our society, and hence with ourselves, is that we consume images, we don't produce them. We need to produce, not consume, media. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Our Society quotes by Charles Ruff
#23. We know the pain the president has caused our society and his family and his friends, but we know, too, how much the president has done for this country. #Quote by Charles Ruff
Our Society quotes by Ted Koppel
#24. Our society finds truth too strong a medicine to digest undiluted. In its purest form, truth is not a polite tap on the shoulder. It is a howling reproach. #Quote by Ted Koppel
Our Society quotes by Seymour Krim
#25. It is still your work or role that finally gives you your definition in our society, and the thousands upon thousands of people who I believe are like me are those who have never found the professional skin to fit the riot in their souls . #Quote by Seymour Krim
Our Society quotes by Keith Stewart
#26. At this point in history, our society tends to elevate and reward the specialist ... This concentrated focus has brought some benefits ... It may also be a modern malady. Specialization, when taken too far and allowed to define who and what we are, becomes limiting. It robs us of our wholeness and our self-sufficiency. It misses the big picture and confines us to a narrow zoom. And it leaves us at the mercy of experts. #Quote by Keith Stewart
Our Society quotes by Bee Wilson
#27. When we say we lack time to cook -- or even time to eat -- we are not making a simple statement of fact. We are talking about cultural values and the way that our society dictates that our days should be carved up. #Quote by Bee Wilson
Our Society quotes by David Riesman
#28. Our society offers little in the way of reeducation for those who have been torn away from their traditional culture and suddenly exposed to all the blandishments of mass culture-even the churches which follow the hillbillies to the city often make use of the same "hard sell" that the advertisers and politicians do. #Quote by David Riesman
Our Society quotes by Alastair Reynolds
#29. The Melding Plague attacked our society at the core. It was not quite a biological virus, not quite a software virus, but a strange and shifting chimera of the two. No pure strain of the plague has ever been isolated, but in its pure form it must resemble a kind of nano-machinery, analogous to the molecular-scale assemblers of our own medichine technology. That it must be of alien origin seems beyond doubt. Equally clear is the fact that nothing we have thrown against the plague has done more than slow it. More often than not, our interventions have only made things worse. The plague adapts to our attacks; it perverts our weapons and turns them against us. Some kind of buried intelligence seems to guide it. We don't know whether the plague was directed toward humanity - or whether we have just been terribly unlucky. #Quote by Alastair Reynolds
Our Society quotes by Rajiv Gandhi
#30. Education must be a great equaliser in our society. It must be the tool to level the differences that our various social systems have created over the past thousands of years. #Quote by Rajiv Gandhi
Our Society quotes by Scott Pelley
#31. The quality of life in America is dependent on the quality of the journalism. Most people don't realize that, but if you think about it, journalism is one of the pillars on which our society is perched. #Quote by Scott Pelley
Our Society quotes by Erika Camplin
#32. America sends its criminals to unseen corners of our society, where they live they live monotonous lives that take away autonomy and choice, and where their time is completely owned by the institution. #Quote by Erika Camplin
Our Society quotes by Noam Chomsky
#33. A very terrifying aspect of our society, and other societies, is the equanimity and the detachment with which sane, reasonable, sensible people can observe [war and human suffering]. I think that's more terrifying than the occasional Hitler ... or other that crop up - these people would not able to operate were it not for this apathy and equanimity - and therefore I think that it is in some sense the sane and reasonable and tolerant people who should share a very serious burden of guilt, that they very easily throw on the shoulders of others who seem more extreme and more violent. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Our Society quotes by Queen Rania Of Jordan
#34. A woman caring for her children; a woman striving to excel in the private sector; a woman partnering with her neighbors to make their street safer; a woman running for office to improve her country - they all have something to offer, and the more our societies empower women, the more we receive in return. #Quote by Queen Rania Of Jordan
Our Society quotes by Stephen Lovegrove
#35. Tolerance is the essential starting point for compassion. That's why it is so emphasized in our society right now. In a world full of discrimination, prejudice, and marginalization, people need to be taught to tolerate people who are different. Tolerance, at the political, social, and cultural level, will prevent us from choosing speech or actions that harms other people groups, which is a definite win. #Quote by Stephen Lovegrove
Our Society quotes by Nguyen Minh Triet
#36. We fought hard for socialism in a devastating war of independence and reunification. To build an affluent and prosperous society, we chose the path of a socialist market economy. We have achieved strong economic growth, and yet the sense of solidarity in our society has not been lost. This is very important to people. #Quote by Nguyen Minh Triet
Our Society quotes by Edward Bond
#37. The human mind is a dramatic structure in itself and our society is absolutely saturated with drama. #Quote by Edward Bond
Our Society quotes by Orlan
#38. I have always questioned the status of the body in our society. I have always been working on social, political, cultural and religious pressures, which prints them in the flesh and in particular in women's flesh. #Quote by Orlan
Our Society quotes by Ezra Miller
#39. I feel like a sickness and dystrophy is growing in people, like people are getting sicker, something about our society, something about our psychological structures. We're not whole. #Quote by Ezra Miller
Our Society quotes by Joyce Meyer
#40. I believe that a lot of people in our society today, people who have been hurt and even people who haven't been hurt, get their worth and value from what they do, what they look like, what they own, what kind of job they have, what kind of house they live in, how much money they have, what social circles they're in, what level of education they have, especially even how other people respond to them. They feel better about themselves if everybody is giving a smiling nod to the way they look and all their choices. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Our Society quotes by Ron Paul
#41. Everybody complains about pork, but members of Congress keep spending because voters do not throw them out of office for doing so. The rotten system in Congress will change only when the American people change their beliefs about the proper role of government in our society. Too many members of Congress believe they can solve all economic problems, cure all social ills, and bring about worldwide peace and prosperity simply by creating new federal programs. We must reject unlimited government and reassert the constitutional rule of law if we hope to halt the spending orgy. #Quote by Ron Paul
Our Society quotes by Shreya Naik
#42. Dear Women... Chill! We are no victims. Fight for equality, not superiority. Days are not far when people would be fighting for 'Men Empowerment'. True... Women suffer more than Men. But that doesn't mean men do not suffer - at all. I have seen male victims of domestic violence. I have read stories of men who have been rape victims. We, being women can at least speak about these issues. Men can't or rather our society doesn't allow them to. We better fight against the issues we are facing irrespective of the gender. And not against Men.

Stop being Weak - Mentally as well as Physically. Because We are Not! #Quote by Shreya Naik
Our Society quotes by Saul Bellow
#43. Our society, like decadent Rome, has turned into an amusement society, with writers chief among the court jesters #Quote by Saul Bellow
Our Society quotes by John Wooden
#44. I think the teaching profession contributes more to the future of our society than any other single profession. #Quote by John Wooden
Our Society quotes by David Ervine
#45. We lost our way, our society lost our way. #Quote by David Ervine
Our Society quotes by Mary Lambert
#46. There is so much shame and guilt in our society, and I think it has deprived a lot of people from living fully. We are all facing battles ... We've all had someone who has hurt us. So let's talk about it. #Quote by Mary Lambert
Our Society quotes by Daniel Pinchbeck
#47. I think a lot of people who were addicts are actually people who had that strong innate need to experience non-ordinary states of consciousness. But because our society has turned into this destructive culture of these horrible drugs that nullify you, they have that experience in a negative way. And then they lose that capacity forever, to have it in a positive way. #Quote by Daniel Pinchbeck
Our Society quotes by William J. Brennan
#48. If our free society is to endure, those who govern must recognize human dignity and accept the enforcement of constitutional limitations on their power conceived by the Framers ... Such recognition will not come from a technical understanding of the organs of government, or the new forms of wealth they administer. It requires something different, something deeper-a personal confrontation with the wellsprings of our society. #Quote by William J. Brennan
Our Society quotes by Luis Gutierrez
#49. So given that reality, let us not cast that all of the problems and ills of our society are somehow upon the immigrants who have come to this country. #Quote by Luis Gutierrez
Our Society quotes by John Robbins
#50. Every time you make a choice that expresses respect for life, you bring a little more love in your body, into your family, into our society, and into a world that is calling out for this blessing. #Quote by John Robbins
Our Society quotes by Douglas Rushkoff
#51. Our society has reoriented itself to the present moment. Everything is live, real time, and always-on. It's not a mere speeding up, however much our lifestyles and technologies have accelerated the rate at which we attempt to do things. It's more of a diminishment of anything that isn't happening right now - and the onslaught of everything that supposedly is. #Quote by Douglas Rushkoff
Our Society quotes by Robert Jay Lifton
#52. When we consider further the social and psychological roots of the collective urge to kill the world, we are likely to see more of ourselves in it and to begin to think of such groups as something of a dark "cultural underground" of our own society. We are also likely to discover that whatever renders our society more decent and more inclusive in its benefits is likely to undermine the totalistic impulse to destroy everything. #Quote by Robert Jay Lifton
Our Society quotes by Haruki Murakami
#53. I was also motivated by a strong sense of fear that we had still not begun to deal with, let alone solve, any of the fundamental issues arising from the gas attack. Specifically, for people who are outside the main system of Japanese society (the young in particular), there remains no effective alternative or safety net. As long as this crucial gap exists in our society, like a kind of black hole, even if Aum is suppressed, other magnetic force fields - "Aum-like" groups - will rise up again, and similar incidents are bound to take place. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Our Society quotes by Scott Wallace
#54. For all the illusions of freedom our society promotes, rarely do we have the chance to step outside it long enough to gain some distance. Beyond the fatuous talk about liberty and the price our founders paid for it, I wondered: How free were we if we'd become so dependent on the comforts produced by industry that we couldn't do without them? #Quote by Scott Wallace
Our Society quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#55. The family is the corner stone of our society. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Our Society quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#56. Solitude is the furnace of transformation. Without solitude we remain victims of our society and continue to be entangled in the illusions of the false self. Jesus himself entered into this furnace. There he was tempted with the three compulsions of the world: to be relevant ('turn stones into loaves'), to be spectacular ('throw yourself down'), and to be powerful ('I will give you all these kingdoms'). There he affirmed God as the only source of his identity ('You must worship the Lord your God and serve him alone'). Solitude is the place of the great struggle and the great encounter - the struggle against the compulsions of the false self, and the encounter with the loving God who offers himself as the substance of the new self. #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen
Our Society quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#57. Our society is illuminated by the spiritual insights of the Hebrew prophets. America and Israel have a common love of human freedom, and they have a common faith in a democratic way of life. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Our Society quotes by Alexander Shulgin
#58. How is it [, then] that the leaders of our society have seen fit to try to eliminate this one very important means of learning and self-discovery, this means which has been used, respected, and honored for thousands of years, in every human culture of which we have a record? #Quote by Alexander Shulgin
Our Society quotes by George W. Bush
#59. I firmly believe the death tax is good for people from all walks of life all throughout our society. #Quote by George W. Bush
Our Society quotes by Craig Finn
#60. I guess the drinking and the drugs are interesting to me because the way we use them and our society uses them, we kind of manufacture highs and lows. #Quote by Craig Finn
Our Society quotes by Erika J. Chopich
#61. Our society has long diminished the importance of feelings, worshiping logic while downgrading the wisdom that comes from feelings, touting the left brain while ignoring the right. And this has created a terrible imbalance - the power of logic without the power of wisdom. Wisdom is the accumulation of all our experiences stored as emotion. When you cannot feel what is true, then you cannot utilize your wisdom. #Quote by Erika J. Chopich
Our Society quotes by Homer Hickam
#62. Despite the ills of our society, we largely live among compassionate, kind and optimistic people who are striving to do good. [ ... ] Learn how to be happy and keep this in mind: You can't be happy unless you stop being afraid. #Quote by Homer Hickam
Our Society quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#63. It was true, of course, there was an abnormal level of narcissism in our society, but it did not do, he told himself, to spend too much time going on about it. Society changed. Narcissism was about love, ultimately, even if only love of self. And that was better than hate. By and large, Hate, of all the tempting gods, was the unhappiest today. He had his recruits, naturally, but they were relatively few, and vilified. Did it matter if young men thought of fashion and hair gel when, not all that many years ago, their thoughts had tended to turn to war and flags and the grim partisanship of the football terrace? #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Our Society quotes by Saul Bellow
#64. Public life drives out private life. The more political our society becomes (in the broadest sense of 'political' - the obsessions, the compulsions of collectivity) the more individuality seems lost. … [N]ational purpose is now involved with the manufacture of commodities in no way essential to human life, but vital to the political survival of the country. … The whole matter … has to do with invasion of the private sphere (including the sexual) by techniques of exploitation and domination. #Quote by Saul Bellow
Our Society quotes by Pervez Musharraf
#65. Who has suffered? The families of the dead, no doubt. But a greater loss was inflicted on Pakistan because, as I said, we lost the pillars of our society. #Quote by Pervez Musharraf
Our Society quotes by Pope Francis
#66. The lack of historical memory is a serious shortcoming in our society. A mentality that can only say, "Then was then, now is now", is ultimately immature. Knowing and judging past events is the only way to build a meaningful future. Memory is necessary for growth. #Quote by Pope Francis
Our Society quotes by Jean Vanier
#67. The next chapter is about belonging: the essential need we have to be and to share with others. The human heart is a place of freedom. We can be obliged to follow the law but not to love, because "true love casts out fear." Our society grows in justice and peace as we allow energies of love and concern for all to rise up in ourselves. #Quote by Jean Vanier
Our Society quotes by Gabriel Marcel
#68. Being and having in our society teaches us how to take possession of things, when it should rather initiate us in the art of letting go. For there is neither freedom nor real life without an apprenticeship in letting go. #Quote by Gabriel Marcel
Our Society quotes by Bob Ney
#69. In my view, there is nothing more vicious and outrageous than the abuse, exploitation and harm of the most vulnerable members of our society, and I firmly believe that our nation's laws and resources need to reflect the seriousness of these terrible crimes. #Quote by Bob Ney
Our Society quotes by Angela Davis
#70. Black women have had to develop a larger vision of our society than perhaps any other group. They have had to understand white men, white women, and black men. And they have had to understand themselves. When black women win victories, it is a boost for virtually every segment of society. #Quote by Angela Davis
Our Society quotes by Gore Vidal
#71. While campaigning, I got to know many high-school teachers, and let me say that the good ones are the unsung heroes of our society, and the bad ones are the gravediggers. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Our Society quotes by William Shakespeare
#72. You great benefactors, sprinkle our society with thankfulness. For your own gifts, make yourselves praised: #Quote by William Shakespeare
Our Society quotes by Tasha Golden
#73. There has to be something other than keeping busy that gives human life value, because our society so often functions as if 'productivity' and/or 'usefulness' are the measures of human value, and - particularly for artists - this is deeply problematic. We shouldn't given in. #Quote by Tasha Golden
Our Society quotes by Dan Ariely
#74. The more cashless our society becomes, the more our moral compass slips. #Quote by Dan Ariely
Our Society quotes by Hubert H. Humphrey
#75. The great challenge which faces us is to assure that, in our society of big-ness, we do not strangle the voice of creativity, that the rules of the game do not come to overshadow its purpose, that the grand orchestration of society leaves ample room for the man who marches to the music of another drummer. #Quote by Hubert H. Humphrey
Our Society quotes by Rollo May
#76. Deeds of violence in our society are performed largely by those trying to establish their self-esteem, to defend their self-image, and to demonstrate that they, too, are significant. #Quote by Rollo May
Our Society quotes by Robert Heilbroner
#77. Growth is the mantra of our society because the economy can't remain healthy without growth.Impregnable monopolies aside (and these are few), profits are both the hallmark of capitalism and its Achilles heel, for no business can permanently maintain its prices much above its costs. There is only one way in which profits can be perpetuated; a business-or an entire economy-must grow. #Quote by Robert Heilbroner
Our Society quotes by Marianne Williamson
#78. There is no amount of money I can make which could buffer my daughter from the horrors that will explode in our society if we do not address the huge amount of suffering in our midst. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Our Society quotes by Hannah Hart
#79. Our society is stuck between problem and solution when it comes to treating mental illness. We cannot find a solution until we agree on the problem. And it is my humble opinion that the problem is fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of the misunderstood. Instead, let us seek to pursue knowledge over fear. Let's find a way to save lives that can be saved. #Quote by Hannah Hart
Our Society quotes by George Lakoff
#80. In the system of conservative moral categories, government regulation falls under interference with the pursuit of self-interest by people trying to make a living, people using their self-discipline to become self-reliant (and, if possible, rich). These are the good people in our society. We want to encourage people like them and it is wrong to put roadblocks in their way. The #Quote by George Lakoff
Our Society quotes by Cameron Diaz
#81. It's really important in our society to tell stories, and I feel grateful and honoured that I get to do that in this day and age. #Quote by Cameron Diaz
Our Society quotes by Philip K. Dick
#82. There are no private lives. This a most important aspect of modern life. One of the biggest transformations we have seen in our society is the diminution of the sphere of the private. We must reasonably now all regard the fact that there are no secrets and nothing is private. Everything is public. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Our Society quotes by Joe Biden
#83. Justice Sandra Day O'Connor decisions reflect, in my view, that our society has worked very hard to improve the workaday world, to open doors to workers confronted by powerful employers and for women facing harassment and stereotypes. #Quote by Joe Biden
Our Society quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#84. So many individuals, children, couples, and families have been destroyed by sexual misconduct. To practice the Third Precept is to heal ourselves and heal our society. This is mindful living. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Our Society quotes by Ken MacLeod
#85. I'm a long-term optimist, and I don't think the problems with our society are from being overly optimistic. #Quote by Ken MacLeod
Our Society quotes by Mark M. Bello
#86. Ladies and gentlemen, after Columbine, Newtown, Sandy Hook, Virginia Tech, San Bernardino, Orlando, Vegas, Parkland and now in our own community, one thing should be clear to citizens and politicians alike. Our society needs stricter laws for people who purchase guns for the purpose of perpetrating criminal acts. We need tougher laws for people who buy guns to sell to criminals or kids. These laws should severely punish anyone in these categories - neither suggestion steps on the Second Amendment . . . #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Our Society quotes by Wendy McElroy
#87. The Great Truth is that women in our society constitute one of the most privileged and powerful classes of human beings on earth. The challenge is to make women believe in their power. "Woman as victim" is an idea whose time has passed. The idea of woman as a survivor and a success must take its place. #Quote by Wendy McElroy
Our Society quotes by Melissa Etheridge
#88. We all want to judge; it's an intrinsic part of our society and human nature. I'm not surprised that talent shows are hits, but I'm glad some of them aren't so brutal. #Quote by Melissa Etheridge
Our Society quotes by Michael Fassbender
#89. You use words like 'introvert' and 'extrovert,' various traits of a personality. A lot of that stuff, we used in drama school, and that was kind of interesting, to realize my teachers sort of ripped off a lot of Jung. And how much of it is part of our society now, these phrases, introvert and extrovert, where it actually came from. #Quote by Michael Fassbender
Our Society quotes by Sonja Lyubomirsky
#90. No one in our society needs to be told that exercise is good for us. Whether you are overweight or have a chronic illness or are a slim couch potato, you've probably heard or read this dictum countless times throughout your life. But has anyone told you-indeed, guaranteed you-that regular physical activity will make you happier? I swear by it. #Quote by Sonja Lyubomirsky
Our Society quotes by Vanna Bonta
#91. Unfortunately, in our society, power means the ability to dominate and oppress. #Quote by Vanna Bonta
Our Society quotes by Yusuf Al-Qaradawi
#92. An Israeli woman is not like women in our societies, because she is a soldier. #Quote by Yusuf Al-Qaradawi
Our Society quotes by George Lucas
#93. I would like to see our society mature, and become more rational and more knowledge-based, less emotion-based. #Quote by George Lucas
Our Society quotes by Lundy Bancroft
#94. Outside of my professional life, I have known many couples over the years who had passion and electricity between them and who treated each other well. But unfortunately there is wide acceptance in our society of the unhealthy notion that passion and aggression are interwoven and that cruel verbal exchanges and bomblike explosions are the price you pay for a relationship that is exciting, deep, and sexy. Popular romantic movies and soap operas sometimes reinforce this image. #Quote by Lundy Bancroft
Our Society quotes by Andrew Lansley
#95. Especially some of the poorest in our society need to have the greatest support because health inequalities are too wide. #Quote by Andrew Lansley
Our Society quotes by Reggie Jackson
#96. I couldn't quit, because of all the kids, and the blacks, and the little people pulling for me. I represent both the underdog and the overdog in our society. #Quote by Reggie Jackson
Our Society quotes by Elizabeth Peters
#97. My nature does not lend itself to the meekness required of a wife in our society. I could not endure a man who would let himself be ruled by me, and I would not endure a man who tried to rule me. #Quote by Elizabeth Peters
Our Society quotes by Anthony Fauci
#98. Activism has been very productive in our society. #Quote by Anthony Fauci
Our Society quotes by Elif Safak
#99. After the Ankara bombings on October 10, people were asked to hold a minute of silence, but many refused. Our society can't even unite in grief to honor the victims. We've lost our empathy. That's maybe the worst. #Quote by Elif Safak
Our Society quotes by Walter E. Williams
#100. Reduced employment opportunities is one effect of minimum wage legislation. The minimum wage law has imposed incalculable harm on the disadvantaged members of our society. The only moral thing to do is to repeal it. #Quote by Walter E. Williams
Our Society quotes by Richard M. Dolan
#101. Setting aside the truth value of the UFO phenomenon, it is an interesting sociological reality that so many people are unwilling to discuss the most - and at times traumatic - experience of their lives. What does it say about our society that this is so? My feeling is that, by its very nature, it represents a form of repression. If you are a reader who believes UFOs to be nonsense of some sort, I can nevertheless assure you that you have a friend or relation who has seen one. They have simply learned not to discuss it. Many people can live perfectly well within the constraints of repression and denial; they simply learn to shut off certain parts of their mind. It is sad, but it happens all of the time.

But not everyone is the same. Not everyone is willing to do this, or even can do this. By any estimate, there are may millions of people on this planet who have had a powerful UFO experience. They cannot and will not be silenced indefinitely. #Quote by Richard M. Dolan
Our Society quotes by Thomas Sowell
#102. If sanity ever returns to our society and we stop taking pretentious elites seriously, one of the signs will be that the public will force the removal of those ugly pieces of twisted metal that are called 'art' in front of government buildings. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Our Society quotes by Carl Sagan
#103. I am convinced there are genuine and valid levels of perception available with cannabis (and probably with other drugs) which are, through the defects of our society and our educational system, unavailable to us without such drugs. Such a remark applies not only to self-awareness and to intellectual pursuits, but also to perceptions of real people, a vastly enhanced sensitivity to facial expression, intonations, and choice of words which sometimes yields a rapport so close it's as if two people are reading each other's minds. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Our Society quotes by Ian McEwan
#104. Without a revolution of the inner life, however slow, all our big designs are worthless. The work we have to do is with ourselves if we're ever going to be at peace with each other ... the good that flows from it will shape our societies in an unprogrammed, unforeseen way, under the control of no single group of people or set of ideas. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Our Society quotes by Billy Graham
#105. A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society. #Quote by Billy Graham
Our Society quotes by Alix Kates Shulman
#106. Our society has very much limited our choices, even regarding the food we think acceptable. #Quote by Alix Kates Shulman
Our Society quotes by Dan Abnett
#107. Great actions have shaped our society.' Sindermann said. The greatest of these, physically, has been the Emperor's formal and complete unification of Terra, the outward sequel to which, this Great Crusade, we are now engaged upon. But the greatest, intellectually, has been our casting off of that heavy mantle called religion. Religion damned our species for thousands of years, from the lowest superstition to the highest conclaves of spiritual faith. It drove us to madness, to war,
to murder, it hung upon us like a disease, like a shackle ball. I'll tell you what religion was... No, you tell me. You, there?'
'Ignorance, sir.'
Thank you, Khanna. Ignorance. Since the earliest times, our species has striven to understand the workings of the cosmos, and where that understanding has failed, or fallen short, we have filled in the gaps, plastered over the discrepancies, with blind faith. Why does the sun go round the sky? I don't know, so I will attribute it to the efforts of a sun god with a golden chariot. Why do people die? I can't say, but I will choose to believe it is the murky business of a reaper who carries souls to some afterworld. #Quote by Dan Abnett
Our Society quotes by Ashengrau And Seage
#108. Most people do not know what epidemiology is or how it contributes to the health of our society. This fact is somewhat paradoxical, given that epidemiology pervades oir lives. #Quote by Ashengrau And Seage
Our Society quotes by Irene Wendy Wode
#109. Is autism a disease?

If a woman asked me right now, "but wouldn't you rather be cured?" I'd reply, "would you like to be cured of being a woman?"

Autism, like womanhood, is painful, and difficult, and not made easy by the structure of our society. But it is who we are.

There are treatments that can make certain aspects easier, yes. But there is no whole cure because there is no whole disease.

Some women take birth control to reduce the effects of PMS or PMDD, to stop their bodies from being so at odds with the world, to make living just a little more easy, a little more comfortable. But it is not for every woman, it does not change the fact that they are a woman, and it does not change the sexism that they face every day, all the problems that result from the fact of society being built to serve people who are not them.

I'd like treatments for autistic people to be seen in the same light. Medicine's priority should be to improve quality of life, not to make a person more palatable to society.

Society must be forced to deal with these people because these people will not be easily consigned to oblivion. #Quote by Irene Wendy Wode
Our Society quotes by Christopher Lasch
#110. The best defenses against the terrors of existence are the homely comforts of love, work, and family life, which connect us to a world that is independent of our wishes yet responsive to our needs. It is through love and work, as Freud noted in a characteristically pungent remark, that we exchange crippling emotional conflict for ordinary unhappiness. Love and work enable each of us to explore a small corner of the world and to come to accept it on its own terms. But our society tends either to devalue small comforts or else to expect too much of them. Our standards of "creative, meaningful work" are too exalted to survive disappointment. Our ideal of "true romance" puts an impossible burden on personal relationships. We demand too much of life, too little of ourselves. #Quote by Christopher Lasch
Our Society quotes by Hannah Arendt
#111. The universal demand for happiness and the widespread unhappiness in our society (and these are but two sides of the same coin) are among the most persuasive signs that we have begun to live in a labor society which lacks enough laboring to keep it contented. For only the animal laborans, and neither the craftsman nor the man of action, has ever demanded to be 'happy' or thought that mortal men could be happy. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Our Society quotes by Serena Jade
#112. Why should one think thay are okay mentally? Making a study of ourselves is the best solution to our society.Our minds are so complex and if we don't have an avenue to explore, we just cough it up as it is just who I am ... However, it is just half of who you are, we need to find our other half and it is not in the form of another person.-Serena Jade #Quote by Serena Jade
Our Society quotes by Michael Palin
#113. [There] are people who make a complete and utter mockery of 'democracy' and 'equality' - they're the casualties of the primitive rules of competition which run our society, and the welfare state just keeps them alive. That's all. #Quote by Michael Palin
Our Society quotes by Paul Simon
#114. Justice Stevens is one of those who are most sensitive to the least powerful in our society. #Quote by Paul Simon
Our Society quotes by Betty Friedan
#115. We have gone on too long blaming or pitying the mothers who devour their children, who sow the seeds of progressive dehumanization, because they have never grown to full humanity themselves. If the mother is at fault, why isn't it time to break the pattern by urging all these Sleeping Beauties to grow up and live their own lives? There never will be enough Prince Charmings or enough therapists to break that pattern now. It is society's job, and finally that of each woman alone. For it is not the strength of the mothers that is at fault but their weakness, their passive childlike dependency and immaturity that is mistaken for "femininity." Our society forces boys, insofar as it can, to grow up, to endure the pains of growth, to educate themselves to work, to move on. Why aren't girls forced to grow up - to achieve somehow the core of self that will end the unnecessary dilemma, the mistaken choice between femaleness and humanness that is implied in the feminine mystique? #Quote by Betty Friedan
Our Society quotes by Kevin Kelly

Our Society quotes by Sheila Matharu
#117. Happy?! I don't know. But I am free and I am alive. There are those who resent not being seen, and I suppose that our invisibility, compounded by the thousands of people who pass us on the street every day without looking into our eyes, is indeed a symptom of something being wrong with our society. But I do not mind it. I would rather be out of a system designed to enslave me. This is my pilgrimage; like a monk, I have abandoned my old life in search of myself. #Quote by Sheila Matharu
Our Society quotes by Patch Adams
#118. I'm a clown, which could be a public health role. I'm really interested in moving our society away from a society needing Xanax and Prozac, and that is really feeling depressed, to one that is celebrating, and so I find just walking around in colorful clothes, people smile. #Quote by Patch Adams
Our Society quotes by Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha

#120. Cigarette smoking is clearly identified as the chief, preventable cause of death in our society. #Quote by C. Everett Koop
Our Society quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#121. The teaching of their ancient belief is filled with truth for the present day. Its profound sense of justice, nation to nation, man to man, is an essential part of every religious and social order. The health of our society depends upon a deep and abiding respect for the basic commandments of the God of Israel. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Our Society quotes by Edward R. Murrow
#122. I am seized with an abiding fear regarding what these two instruments are doing to our society, our culture and our heritage. Our history will be what we make it. And if there are any historians about fifty or a hundred years from now, and there should be preserved the kinescopes for one week of all three networks, they will there find recorded in black and white, or color, evidence of decadence, escapism and insulation from the realities of the world in which we live, #Quote by Edward R. Murrow
Our Society quotes by Eli Broad
#123. Public education is the key civil rights issue of the 21st century. Our nation's knowledge-based economy demands that we provide young people from all backgrounds and circumstances with the education and skills necessary to become knowledge workers. If we don't, we run the risk of creating an even larger gap between the middle class and the poor. This gap threatens our democracy, our society and the economic future of America. #Quote by Eli Broad
Our Society quotes by Richard Attias
#124. Inspiration, in its rich variety, must be present in any discussion about Africa. We need role models - they are essential to the advancement of our society. #Quote by Richard Attias
Our Society quotes by Chris Hedges
#125. As porn has gone mainstream, ushered two decades ago into middle-class living rooms and dens with VCRs and now available on the Internet, it has devolved into an open fusion of physical abuse and sex, of extreme violence, horrible acts of degradation against women with an increasingly twisted eroticism. Porn has always primarily involved the eroticization of unlimited male power, but today it also involves the expression of male power through the physical abuse, even torture, of women. Porn reflects the endemic cruelty of our society. This is a society that does not blink when the industrial slaughter unleashed by the United States and its allies kills hundreds of civilians in Gaza or hundreds of thousands of innocents in Iraq and Afghanistan. Porn reflects back the cruelty of a culture that tosses its mentally ill on the street, warehouses more than 2 million people in prisons, denies health care to tens of millions of the poor, champions gun ownership over gun control, and trumpets an obnoxious and super patriotic nationalism and rapacious corporate capitalism. The violence, cruelty, and degradation of porn are expressions of a society that has lost the capacity for empathy. #Quote by Chris Hedges
Our Society quotes by James Howard Kunstler
#126. History is merciless. History doesn't care if we pound our society down a rat hole. It's up to us to make more intelligent choices about how we live! #Quote by James Howard Kunstler
Our Society quotes by Marina Gorbis
#127. After all, we are all immigrants to the future; none of us is a native in that land. Margaret Mead famously wrote about the profound changes wrought by the Second World War, "All of us who grew up before the war are immigrants in time, immigrants from an earlier world, living in an age essentially different from anything we knew before." Today we are again in the early stages of defining a new age. The very underpinnings of our society and institutions
from how we work to how we create value, govern, trade, learn, and innovate
are being profoundly reshaped by amplified individuals. We are indeed all migrating to a new land and should be looking at the new landscape emerging before us like immigrants: ready to learn a new language, a new way of doing things, anticipating new beginnings with a sense of excitement, if also with a bit of understandable trepidation. #Quote by Marina Gorbis
Our Society quotes by George W. Bush
#128. I'm telling America we need to not discriminate against faith-based programs. We need to welcome them so our society is more wholesome, more welcoming, and more hopeful for every single citizen. #Quote by George W. Bush
Our Society quotes by Roy Baumeister
#129. Most of the problems that plague our society - addiction, overeating, crime, domestic violence, prejudice, debt, unwanted pregnancy, educational failure, underperformance at school and work, lack of savings, failure to exercise - are in some degree a failure of self-control. #Quote by Roy Baumeister
Our Society quotes by Janet E. Smith
#130. We live in a culture in which condoms can be handed out in schools and Bibles can't. And I think that tells you everything you need to know about our society. #Quote by Janet E. Smith
Our Society quotes by John Bradshaw
#131. SOCIETY AS COMPULSIVE AND ADDICTED Our society is highly addictive. We have sixty million sexual abuse victims. Possibly seventy-five million lives are seriously affected by alcoholism, with no telling how many more through other drugs. We have no idea of the actual impact on our economy of the billions of tax-free dollars that come from the illegal drug trade. Over fifteen million families are violent. Some 60 percent of women and 50 percent of men have eating disorders. We have no actual data on work addiction or sexual addictions. I saw a recent quotation that cited thirteen million gambling addicts. If toxic shame is the fuel of addiction, we have a massive problem of shame in our society. #Quote by John Bradshaw
Our Society quotes by George Brandis
#132. We have a great literary tradition in Australia. I think the book is very much alive and the more people who are encouraged to read books the better our society will be and the wiser our society will be. #Quote by George Brandis
Our Society quotes by Frank Murphy
#133. I believe that nothing enjoys a higher estate in our society than the right given by the First and Fourteenth Amendments freely to practice and proclaim one's religious convictions. #Quote by Frank Murphy

Our Society quotes by Hari Sreenivasan
#135. The composition of our society has been changing. We [world] are becoming a more urban population. Mega-cities, those with more than 10 million residents, are booming. #Quote by Hari Sreenivasan
Our Society quotes by Shunryu Suzuki
#136. When we sit in the cross-legged posture, we resume our fundamental activity of creation. There are perhaps three kinds of creation. The first is to be aware of ourselves after we finish zazen. When we sit we are nothing, we do not even realize what we are; we just sit. But when we stand up, we are there! That is the first step in creation. When you are there, everything else is there; everything is created all at once. When we emerge from nothing, when everything emerges from nothing, we see it all as a fresh new creation. This is nonattachment. The second kind of creation is when you act, or produce or prepare something like food or tea. The third kind is to create something within yourself, such as education, or culture, or art, or some system for our society. So there are three kinds of creation. But if you forget the first, the most important one, the other two will be like children who have lost their parents; their creation will mean nothing. Usually #Quote by Shunryu Suzuki
Our Society quotes by Kathleen Norris
#137. But it is daily tasks, daily acts of love and worship that serve to remind us that the religion is not strictly an intellectual pursuit, and these days it is easy to lose sight of that as, like our society itself, churches are becoming more politicized and polarized. Christian faith is a way of life, not an impregnable fortress made up of ideas; not a philosophy; not a grocery list of beliefs. #Quote by Kathleen Norris
Our Society quotes by Astro Teller
#138. I'm a father to four kids, so it bothers me that even though our children think big naturally, our society systematically trains them out of thinking that way. #Quote by Astro Teller
Our Society quotes by Edward Bond
#139. I write about violence as naturally as Jane Austen wrote about manners. Violence shapes and obsesses our society, and if we do not stop being violent we have no future. #Quote by Edward Bond
Our Society quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#140. In our society it is murder, psychologically, to deprive a man of a job or an income. You are in substance saying to that man that he has no right to exist. You are in a real way depriving him of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, denying in his case the very creed of his society. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Our Society quotes by Matthew Lysiak
#141. We can't tolerate this anymore. These tragedies must end. And to end them, we must change. We will be told that the causes of such violence are complex, and that is true. No single law, no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world, or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society. But that can't be an excuse for inaction. Surely, we can do better than this. If there is even one step we can take to save another child, or another parent, or another town, from the grief that has visited Tucson, and Aurora, and Oak Creek, and Newtown, and communities from Columbine to Blacksburg before that - then surely we have an obligation to try. He #Quote by Matthew Lysiak
Our Society quotes by Karen Armstrong
#142. I want to create a rapid response team, right around the world, perhaps starting originally with our partners, similar to the one we have in the United Nations whereby, where there's a problem in our society which demands a compassionate response, an educated, informed, not just a splurgy emotional thing, but an informed compassionate response that puts yourself in the position of the other and sees all sides of the problem, not just your own, there'll be somebody poised in each society who can write to the media, write an op-ed piece, to go on TV or radio. #Quote by Karen Armstrong
Our Society quotes by Steve Almond
#143. What does it mean that the most popular and unifying form of entertainment in America circa 2014 features giant muscled men, mostly African-American, engaged in a sport that causes many of them to suffer brain damage? What does it mean that our society has transmuted the intuitive physical joys of childhood - run, leap, throw, tackle - into a corporatized form of simulated combat? That a collision sport has become the leading signifier of our institutions of higher learning, and the undisputed champ of our colossal Athletic Industrial Complex? #Quote by Steve Almond
Our Society quotes by Grace Lee Boggs
#144. Every crisis, actual or impending, needs to be viewed as an opportunity to bring about profound changes in our society. Going beyond protest organizing, visionary organizing begins by creating images and stories of the future that help us imagine and create alternatives to the existing system. #Quote by Grace Lee Boggs
Our Society quotes by Tony Hsieh
#145. Our society in general has is more money equals more happiness and all the research has shown that that's true up to a point, up until you can get your basic needs met, but then really there is other stuff that has a much bigger impact on your happiness besides just money. #Quote by Tony Hsieh
Our Society quotes by Annie Lobert
#146. Making prostitution legalized gives our society a message that sex is not sacred/private between two adults - that sex can be bought and sold just like any object. But prostitutes are people, not objects to be consumed, used and discarded like trash when they are no longer doing what each client/trafficker wants. #Quote by Annie Lobert
Our Society quotes by Michel Foucault
#147. What strikes me is the fact that in our society, art has become something which is related only to objects and not to individuals, or to life. That art is something which is specialized or which is done by experts who are artists. But couldn't everyone's life become a work of art? Why should the lamp or the house be an art object, but not our life? #Quote by Michel Foucault
Our Society quotes by Alexis Arquette
#148. Yes, I am transgendered but I also am a cross-dresser - I dress as a woman. It's not that I just want to be seen as a female in our society, I'm also a drag queen and a performer - there are many levels there. #Quote by Alexis Arquette
Our Society quotes by Ellen Malcolm
#149. Having women in office is vital to the health of our democracy because women play a unique role in our society. By and large, women are still the primary caregivers in families, even as we have taken our place in the workforce. #Quote by Ellen Malcolm
Our Society quotes by Harold B. Lee
#150. The kingdom of God must be a continuing revolution against the norms of the society that fall below the standards that are set for us in the gospel of Jesus Christ. In the field of public life, it must be a continuing revolution against proposals that contradict the fundamental principles as laid down in the Constitution of the United States, which was written by men whom God raised up for this very purpose. If we remember that, we will be in the forefront of every battle against the things that are tearing down our society. #Quote by Harold B. Lee
Our Society quotes by Abhishek  Verma

Our Society quotes by Bill O'Reilly
#152. I'm calling for all responsible Americans to fight back and punish Pepsi for using a man who degrades women, who encourages substance abuse, and does all the things that hurt particularly the poor in our society. I'm calling for all Americans to say, hey Pepsi, I'm not drinking your stuff. You want to hang around with Ludacris (a rap singer that Pepsi planned to use for advertising), you do that, I'm not hanging around with you. Am I wrong to do that? #Quote by Bill O'Reilly
Our Society quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#153. Here's the thing... what if you want to be desperate and you want to be vulnerable and you want to be needy and cut open, bleeding and raw? What if you want to be all of the things that this society tells us we should never be? Our society tells us that when we are cut open we shouldn't bleed; when we are afraid nobody should know about it; when we are in love we should bury it under rocks. We are born into this world as flesh and blood and soul and then we are taught to despise everything we were born as, in favour of the appearance of strength. What is strength? You're not strong at all, until you are brave enough to be human. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.

Our Society quotes by Echo Bodine
#156. There are a lot of voices inside of us. We have the voices of our parents, our grandparents, our society, our bosses, our own should's and shouldn'ts, and our self-worth is in us, controlling us a lot. When we can get past all of those, and get to the deep, core part of us, there's a voice within our soul that I believe is connected to our Divine or Higher Self. That voice within is there to guide us through all aspects of our lives. #Quote by Echo Bodine
Our Society quotes by Guy Debord

Our Society quotes by Helen Smith
#162. Our society has become the angry leered-at woman who doesn't care that men can build buildings or do amazing things like be good dads, husbands and sons. She focuses instead on the small flaws that some men have and extrapolates to all men; they are all dogs, rapists, perverts, deadbeats and worthless. #Quote by Helen Smith

Our Society quotes by John Palfrey
#164. Libraries are more than community centers, just as librarians do more than answer questions you could easily ask Google. From the opening of the BPL, the first public library, to the expansion of public libraries across America through the Carnegie libraries, the library as an institution has been fundamental to the success of our democracy. Libraries provide access to the skills and knowledge necessary to fulfill our role as active citizens. Libraries also function as essential equalizing institutions in our society. For as long as a library exists in most communities, staffed with trained librarians, it remains true that individuals' access to our shared culture is not dictated by however much money they have. #Quote by John Palfrey

Our Society quotes by Nelson Mandela
#169. We can neither heal nor build if, on the one hand the rich in our society see the poor as hordes of irritants or if on the other hand the poor sit back, expecting charity. All of us must take responsibility for the upliftment of our conditions, prepared to give our best to the benefit of all #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Our Society quotes by Chogyam Trungpa
#170. When human beings lose their connection to nature, to heaven and earth, then they do not know how to nurture their environmect or how to rule their world - which is saying the same thing. Human beings destroy their ecology at the same time that they destroy one another. From that perspective, healing our society goes hand in hand with healing our personal, elemental connection with the phenomenal world. #Quote by Chogyam Trungpa
Our Society quotes by Marianne Williamson
#171. The right tends to posit that the market fuels social good. The left tends to posit that the government fuels social good. At bottom, democracy claims that citizens drive social good, but there is currently no container for a political force-field that stakes claim to the unbelievable resources now virtually untapped in every man, woman, and child in our society. #Quote by Marianne Williamson

Our Society quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#174. When God makes a covenant with us, God says: 'I will love you with an everlasting love. I will be faithful to you, even when you run away from me, reject me, or betray me.' In our society we don't speak much about covenants; we speak about contracts. When we make a contract with a person, we say: 'I will fulfill my part as long as you fulfill yours. When you don't live up to your promises, I no longer have to live up to mine.' Contracts are often broken because the partners are unwilling or unable to be faithful to their terms.
But God didn't make a contract with us; God made a covenant with us, and God wants our relationships with one another to reflect that covenant. That's why marriage, friendship, life in community are all ways to give visibility to God's faithfulness in our lives together. #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen
Our Society quotes by William H. Macy
#175. I've got two little girls, I'm not scared about sex. I'll teach them, it's not going to kill them. But what could kill them is violence. Guns, drinking and driving, these are the real dangers in our society. #Quote by William H. Macy
Our Society quotes by Joseph P. Kauffman
#176. Human beings have become a virus to planet Earth. Our way of life consists of constant pollution of natural resources, violence between nations, oppression of populations, torturing of animals, and the destruction of our own health and wellness. Our society is not sustainable and the people in control have no interest in the well being of the people or the planet. #Quote by Joseph P. Kauffman

#178. For most people, wages are the most important source of income. Macroeconomic and monetary policies that result in higher unemployment - and lower wages for ordinary citizens - are a major source of inequality in our society today.

Our Society quotes by Dick Vitale
#179. The world would be a much better place if people treated one another with decency and respect. There is no reason to be cruel to someone who is down or has any sort of problem, physical or otherwise. Trust me, man. I know. And today, if you're being bullied, you do not have to just suck it up. If you have or your child has a problem, tell someone in authority and talk about the pain. There are a lot of people out there who provide helpful guidance and support, like counselors, spiritual leaders, teachers, coaches, etc., all you need to do is reach out. Bullying is a problem that has really left its mark on our society, and I know there is more we can all do to stop it. #Quote by Dick Vitale
Our Society quotes by Eliot Spitzer

Our Society quotes by Martin Luther King Jr.
#181. Nonviolent coercion always brings tension to the surface. This tension, however, must not be seen as destructive. There is a kind of tension that is both healthy and necessary for growth. Society needs nonviolent gadflies to bring its tensions into the open and force its citizens to confront the ugliness of their prejudices and the tragedy of their racism.

It is important for the liberal to see that the oppressed person who agitates for his rights is not the creator of tension....How strange it would be to condemn a physician who, through persistent work and the ingenuity of his medical skills, discovered cancer in a patient. Would anyone be so ignorant as to say he caused the cancer? Through the skills and discipline of direct action we reveal that there is a dangerous cancer of hatred and racism in our society. We did not cause the cancer; we merely exposed it. Only through this kind of exposure will the cancer be cured. #Quote by Martin Luther King Jr.
Our Society quotes by Richard Eyre
#182. There is in our society a gulf opening up, a kind of cultural apartheid, between those who are brought up to feel our national culture is theirs, to take ownership of it, and enjoy the privileges of that, and those who are completely disfranchised, those - for example - who will never be taken to the theatre to see Shakespeare. #Quote by Richard Eyre
Our Society quotes by Richard Hofstadter
#183. A university is not a service station. Neither is it a political society, nor a meeting place for political societies. With all its limitations and failures, and they are invariably many, it is the best and most benign side of our society insofar as that society aims to cherish the human mind. #Quote by Richard Hofstadter
Our Society quotes by Barry McGee
#184. Work done illegally outdoors or without permission feels like pure freedom to me. I understand how it can upset many in our society, but in the bigger picture, it is ultimately about freedom. We are living in a time where public space has become a commodity for corporations to control and dictate what is seen and heard. #Quote by Barry McGee
Our Society quotes by Roger Bannister
#185. We run, not because we think it is doing us good, but because we enjoy it and cannot help ourselves ... The more restricted our society and work become, the more necessary it will be to find some outlet for this craving for freedom. No one can say, 'You must not run faster than this, or jump higher than that.' The human spirit is indomitable. #Quote by Roger Bannister
Our Society quotes by Noam Chomsky
#186. by considering what has happened in East Timor since 1975, we can learn some important things about ourselves, our society, and our institutions. If we do not like what we find when we look at the facts - and few will fail to be appalled if they take an honest look - we can work to bring about changes in the practices and structure of institutions that cause terrible suffering and slaughter. To the extent that we see ourselves as citizens in a democratic community, we have a responsibility to devote our energies to these ends. The recent history of Timor provides a revealing insight into the policies of the U.S. government, #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Our Society quotes by Jonathan Patrick Lamas
#187. It's sad how we so often reward bad behavior in our society, while the good ones are left in the shadows, often held to higher standards. #Quote by Jonathan Patrick Lamas
Our Society quotes by Mike Rogers
#188. Alabama citizens, like the vast majority of Americans, respect and value the meaning of decency, and appreciate public institutions that reflect the common values of our society. #Quote by Mike Rogers
Our Society quotes by Judith Light
#189. Bigotry or prejudice in any form is more than a problem; it is a deep-seated evil within our society. #Quote by Judith Light
Our Society quotes by Paulo Coelho
#190. All women have a perception much more developed than men. So all women somehow, being repressed for so many millennia, they ended up by developing this sixth sense and contemplation and love. And this is something that we have a hard time to accept as part of our society. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Our Society quotes by Robin DiAngelo
#191. White people raised in Western society are conditioned into a white supremacist worldview because it is the bedrock of our society and its institutions. Regardless of whether a parent told you that everyone was equal, or the poster in the hall of your white suburban school proclaimed the value of diversity, or you have traveled abroad, or you have people of color in your workplace or family, the ubiquitous socializing power of white supremacy cannot be avoided. The messages circulate 24-7 and have little or nothing to do with intentions, awareness, or agreement. Entering the conversation with this understanding is freeing because it allows us to focus on how--rather than if--our racism is manifest. When we move beyond the good/bad binary, we can become eager to identify our racist patterns because interrupting those patterns becomes more important than managing how we think we look to others.

I repeat: stopping our racist patterns must be more important than working to convince others that we don't have them. We do have them, and people of color already know we have them; our efforts to prove otherwise are not convincing. An honest accounting of these patterns is no small task given the power of white fragility and white solidarity, but it is necessary. #Quote by Robin DiAngelo
Our Society quotes by Ralph Ellison
#192. Many of the rites of passage, those rituals of growing up found in our society, are in the form of such comic, practical joking affairs
which we ignore in the belief that they possess no deeper significance. Yet it is precisely in their being regarded as unimportant that they take on importance. For in them we ritualize and dramatize attitudes which contradict and often embarrass the sacred values which we proclaim through our solemn ceremonies and rituals of nationhood. #Quote by Ralph Ellison
Our Society quotes by Graeme Macrae Burnet
#193. If we measure our society by the compassion we extend to all its members, then it must be admitted that in extending such compassion to the most wretched among us, we demonstrate our fidelity to the most civilised Christian values. #Quote by Graeme Macrae Burnet
Our Society quotes by Ethan Hawke
#194. In all of our society, but especially in Hollywood, there is an obsession with perfection that can lead to self-loathing and neurosis and all that kind of stuff. #Quote by Ethan Hawke
Our Society quotes by Nhat Hanh
#195. If we are at war with our parents, our family, our society, or our church, there is probably a war going on inside us also, so the most basic work for peace is to return to ourselves and create harmony among the elements within us - our feelings, our perceptions, and our mental states. That is why the practice of meditation, looking deeply, is so important. #Quote by Nhat Hanh
Our Society quotes by Craig Johnson
#196. Our society, our culture, and our humanity depend on never crossing certain lines, #Quote by Craig Johnson
Our Society quotes by H.L. Mencken
#197. 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. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Our Society quotes by Lewis Mumford
#198. So far has Western society departed from the ancient taboos against murder, theft, and rape that we are now faced with juvenile delinquents who have no inner check against wantonly assaulting other human beings at random 'for kicks' while we have adult delinquents capable of deliberately planning the extermination of tens of millions of human beings, in carrying out, also doubtless for kicks, a mathematical theory of games. Today our civilization is relapsing into a state far more primitive, far more irrational, than any taboo-ridden society now known-for lack of any effective taboos. If Western man could establish an inviolate taboo against random extermination, our society would enjoy a far more effective safeguard against both private violence and still impending collective nuclear horrors than the United Nations or the fallible mechanisms of Fail-Safe. #Quote by Lewis Mumford
Our Society quotes by Jens Stoltenberg
#199. Just as important as our society as a whole are our small communities: our neighborhoods, workplaces and schools. #Quote by Jens Stoltenberg
Our Society quotes by Julia Butterfly Hill
#200. when you see someone in a tree trying to protect it , you know that every level of our society have failed , the consumers have failed , the companies have failed , the government has failed . #Quote by Julia Butterfly Hill
Our Society quotes by David Frum
#201. The Great Society went wrong for three major reasons. First, the self-organization the Johnson administration promoted turned out to be not the pooling of family and community resources into shops and businesses, but political pressure for government handouts. Second, the Great Society failed to anticipate the perverse side-effects of handing money out to people who have done nothing to earn it. Third, while the Great Society was showering money on the poor, the Supreme Court was with childlike glee smashing to bits traditional methods of maintaining law and order. #Quote by David Frum
Our Society quotes by Ivan Illich
#202. The American university has become the final stage of the most all encompassing initiation rite the world has ever known. No society in history has been able to survive without ritual or myth, but ours is the first which has needed such a dull, protracted, destructive, and expensive initiation into its myth. The contemporary world civilization is also the first one which has found it necessary to rationalize its fundamental initiation ritual in the name of education. We cannot begin a reform of education unless we first understand that neither individual learning nor social equality can be enhanced by the ritual of schooling. We cannot go beyond the consumer society unless we first understand that obligatory public schools inevitably reproduce such a society, no matter what is taught in them. #Quote by Ivan Illich
Our Society quotes by Dorothee Solle
#203. When he was twenty-three years old, he (George Fox) saw the inner light in a vision. For him it symbolized the spirit against the letter, silence against chatter, experience against dogma, and equality against all who build inequality on authority and power, be it of the state or religion. His mistrust of the official Anglican Church was immense. He spoke with disdain of the "towered houses" and was tormented by the ringing of church bells. He frequently interrupted preachers, standing in the church's doorway, a hat covering his head, and uttering threatening words toward the pulpit, causing great excitement in the gathered congregation. It often resulted in Fox being beaten up, banished, and, later on, jailed for years.

What aroused his ire, above all, were the priests who, without ever having experienced or even looked for illumination, presented themselves as servants of God but, in truth, comprised a "society of cannibals." It is "not enough to have been educated in Oxford or Cambridge in order to become capable for and efficient in the service of Christ.

To this day it is difficult for many Friends to speak of "Quaker theology." The Friends believe in Scripture - George Fox knew it by heart - but they also believe that the Spirit transcends Scripture and that the inner light is experienced by all human beings without human mediation. "The inner light," "the inward teacher" are names that the early Quakers gave to their experiences of the Spirit. T #Quote by Dorothee Solle
Our Society quotes by Narendra Modi
#204. School can become a temple of learning only when the student, the guardian, and the society, in harmony, endeavor to make it a place of pursuit for education, a sadhana; where the spring of punctuality, sanctity and thirst for knowledge flows. #Quote by Narendra Modi

Our Society quotes by Julian Morris
#206. Universal adoption of the institutions of the free society would better enable adaptation to climate both now and in the future. It would also ensure that, if at some point in the future, a real catastrophe, whether human-induced or otherwise (including climate change), does loom on the horizon, humanity would be in a better position to address it. #Quote by Julian Morris
Our Society quotes by Arkady Strugatsky
#207. And no matter how much the gray people in power despise knowledge, they can't do anything about historical objectivity; they can slow it down, but they can't stop it. Despising and fearing knowledge, they will nonetheless inevitably decide to promote it in order to survive. Sooner or later they will be forced to allow universities and scientific societies, to create research centers, observatories, and laboratories, and thus to create a cadre of people of thought and knowledge: people who are completely beyond their control, people with a completely different psychology and with completely different needs. And these people cannot exist and certainly cannot function in the former atmosphere of low self-interest, banal preoccupations, dull self-satisfaction, and purely carnal needs. They need a new atmosphere - an atmosphere of comprehensive and inclusive learning, permeated with creative tension; they need writers, artists, composers - and the gray people in power are forced to make this concession too. The obstinate ones will be swept aside by their more cunning opponents in the struggle for power, but those who make this concession are, inevitably and paradoxically, digging their own graves against their will. For fatal to the ignorant egoists and fanatics is the growth of a full range of culture in the people - from research in the natural sciences to the ability to marvel at great music. And then comes the associated process of the broad intellectualization of society: #Quote by Arkady Strugatsky
Our Society quotes by Charlie Munger
#208. For society, the Internet is wonderful, but for capitalists, it will be a net negative. It will increase efficiency, but lots of things increase efficiency without increasing profits. It is way more likely to make American businesses less profitable than more profitable. This is perfectly obvious, but very little understood. #Quote by Charlie Munger
Our Society quotes by Louis Ferdinand Celine
#209. Note accordingly that in all countries the penalties for petty theft are extremely severe, not only as a means of defending society, but also as a stern admonition to the unfortunate to know their place, stick to their caste, and behave themselves, joyfully resigned to go on dying of hunger and misery down through the centuries forever and ever ... #Quote by Louis Ferdinand Celine
Our Society quotes by George Will
#210. Commercial society regards people as bundles of appetites, a conception that turns human beings inside out, leaving nothing to be regarded as inherently private. #Quote by George Will

#211. Obama often criticizes policies that place the interests of the powerful ahead of the powerless. But through his administration's support of abortion rights, Obama shows his lack of empathy for society's most powerless. #Quote by Gary Bauer
Our Society quotes by Richard Rogers
#212. Society has to get a grip and put a tax on carbon. Of course, there is much that flows from that, and it is a complex situation. The small details of something such as climate change are political and social, and they are a lot about fairness and how we rebalance towards a fairer society. #Quote by Richard Rogers

#215. Grimm: Cat and Mouse (#1.18) (2012)
Edgar Waltz: You may think I'm a monster, but what I am is necessary. No society would survive without order. Free thought is not free. There's no such thing as revolution. The oppressed always become the oppressors and the cycle repeats itself over and over. The only way to win is to stay out of the cycle. You don't understand a word that I've been saying.

Our Society quotes by Colin Wilson
#217. The vitality of the ordinary members of society is dependent on its Outsiders. Many Outsiders unify themselves, realize themselves as poets or saints. Others remain tragically divided and unproductive, but even they supply soul-energy to society; it is their strenuousness that purifies thought and prevents the bourgeois world from foundering under its own dead-weight; they are society's spiritual dynamos. #Quote by Colin Wilson
Our Society quotes by Andrea Dworkin
#218. Male dominance in society always means that out of public sight, in the private, ahistorical world of men with women, men are sexually dominating women. #Quote by Andrea Dworkin
Our Society quotes by Michael Shermer
#219. In a free society, skeptics are the watchdogs against irrationalism - the consumer advocates of ideas. Debunking is not simply the divestment of bunk; its utility is in offering a better alternative, along with a lesson on how thinking goes wrong. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Our Society quotes by Camille Paglia
#220. The male orientation of classical Athens was inseparable from its genius. Athens became great not despite but because of its misogyny. #Quote by Camille Paglia

#222. There are only two classes in society: those who get more than they earn, and those who earn more than they get. #Quote by Holbrook Jackson
Our Society quotes by Max Blumenthal
#223. By weaponizing the discourse of human rights to justify the use of force against governments that resisted the Washington consensus, this group of well-connected liberals was able to stir support where the neocons could not. Their brand of interventionism appealed directly to the sensibility of the Democratic Party's metropolitan base, large swaths of academia, the foundation-funded human rights NGO complex, and the New York Times editorial board. The xhibition of atrocities allegedly committed by adversarial governments, either by Western-funded civil society groups, major human rights organizations or the mainstream press, was the military humanists' stock in trade, enabling them to mask imperial designs behind a patina of "genocide prevention." With this neat tactic, they effectively neutralized progressive antiwar elements and tarred those who dared to protest their wars as dictator apologists. #Quote by Max Blumenthal
Our Society quotes by Immortal Technique
#224. The interesting thing about that is one of the greatest critics of socialism and leftwing writings was Robert Michels who wrote a series of essays called "The Iron Law of Oligarchy" and in these essays he discusses how no matter what sorts of freedoms are advertised or put into a society structure, that all societies, all form of governments - whether they be a Roman republic, whether they be a democracy, whether they be a Russian communist system, whatever, a tribe ... a tribal council - all of the continuously, throughout the ages, have all converted back into an oligarchy. #Quote by Immortal Technique
Our Society quotes by Jacques Ellul
#225. Sport carries on without deviation the mechanical tradition of furnishing relief and distraction to the worker after he has finished his work proper so that he is at no time independent of one technique or another. In sport the citizen of the technical society finds the same spirit, criteria, morality, actions and objectives in short, all the technical laws and customs which he encounters in office or factory. #Quote by Jacques Ellul
Our Society quotes by Paul Collier
#226. Persuading everyone to behave decently to each other because the society is so fragile is a worthy goal, but it may be more straightforward just to make the societies less fragile, which means developing their economies. #Quote by Paul Collier
Our Society quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#227. Having replaced instinct with language, society, and culture, we are the only species that depends on teaching and learning. We aren't human without them. In them is true power. But are they the occupations of the rich and mighty? #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin

Our Society quotes by Don DeLillo
#230. Within sixty-minute limits or one-hundred-yard limits or the limits of a game board, we can look for perfect moments or perfect structures. In my fiction I think this search sometimes turns out to be a cruel delusion.

No optimism, no pessimism. No homesickness for lost values or for the way fiction used to be written.

Everybody seems to know everything. Subjects surface and are totally exhausted in a matter of days or weeks, totally played out by the publishing industry and the broadcast industry. Nothing is too arcane to escape the treatment, the process. Making things difficult for the reader is less an attack on the reader than it is on the age and its facile knowledge-market.

The writer is the person who stands outside society, independent of affiliation and independent of influence. The writer is the man or woman who automatically takes a stance against his or her government. There are so many temptations for American writers to become part of the system and part of the structure that now, more than ever, we have to resist. American writers ought to stand and live in the margins, and be more dangerous. Writers in repressive societies are considered dangerous. That's why so many of them are in jail.

Some people prefer to believe in conspiracy because they are made anxious by random acts. Believing in conspiracy is almost comforting because, in a sense, a conspiracy is a story we tell each other to ward off the dread of chaotic #Quote by Don DeLillo

Our Society quotes by Annie Spence
#232. If you're reading this, chances are you've experienced bouts of antisocial behavior and "read rage" outbursts toward friends and family. Because, although you participate in society as much as necessary to convince your mom and the shrink your mom hired that you're not a shut-in, truth is, you'd rather be reading than doing just about anything. Did you think it was just you? It's not. You've just never met any of the others because we don't want to talk to you either. #Quote by Annie Spence
Our Society quotes by James Heckman
#233. Some kids win the lottery at birth; far too many don't - and most people have a hard time catching up over the rest of their lives. Children raised in disadvantaged environments are not only much less likely to succeed in school or in society, but they are also much less likely to be healthy adults. #Quote by James Heckman

Our Society quotes by Thomas Sowell
#236. The monumental tragedies of the 20th century -- a world-wide Great Depression, two devastating World Wars, the Holocaust, famines killing millions in the Soviet Union and tens of millions in China -- should leave us with a sobering sense of the threats to any society. But this generation's ignorance of history leaves them free to be frivolous -- until the next catastrophe strikes, and catches them completely by surprise. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Our Society quotes by Robin S. Sharma

Our Society quotes by Deborah Ford
#238. A Mother's Advice

Manners matter, regardless of your position in society. There is no excuse in this world to practice bad manners, especially at the table. I found that out in high school. I was invited to my boyfriend's house for dinner. His parents were somewhat formal, and I knew the dinner would be "fancy," at least in my mind. My family wasn't upper class (or even middle class), and my mother never had what would be called "social graces."
Before I left, my mother gave me a piece of advice: hold your head high, be quiet, and take the lead from his mother. Even though I was scared to death, I did what my mother advised and got through the experience with flying colors.
To this day, my mother's advice has gotten me through many difficult situations, especially ones that are totally new to me! With my mother's simple advice, I know I could dine with the Queen of England, just by following her lead. Thanks, Mother!
