Peaceful Society quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#1. Every step by which an individual substitutes concerted action for isolated action results in an immediate and recognizable improvement in his conditions. The advantages derived from peaceful cooperation and division of labor are universal. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Peaceful Society quotes by David O. McKay
#2. [Liberty] is freedom of choice, a divine gift, an essential virtue in a peaceful society. #Quote by David O. McKay
Peaceful Society quotes by Mo Yan
#3. A stable, peaceful society is the training ground for humanity, just as caged animals, removed from the violent unpredictability of the wild, are influenced by the behaviour of their captors in time. #Quote by Mo Yan
Peaceful Society quotes by Amit Bhatia
#4. If we don't have an egalitarian, equitable, and peaceful society, being very wealthy isn't worth much. If I can make a little bit of a dent in addressing this issue, I'll have done my service. #Quote by Amit Bhatia
Peaceful Society quotes by Maria Mies
#5. By focusing on the male violence against women, coming to the surface in rape, and by trying to make this a public issue, feminists have unwittingly touched one of the taboos of civilised society, namely that this is a 'peaceful society'. … The very fact that rape has now become a public issue had helped to tear the veil from the facade of so-called civilised society and has laid bare its hidden, brutal, violent foundations. #Quote by Maria Mies
Peaceful Society quotes by Coretta Scott King
#6. How many men must die before we can really have a free and true and peaceful society? How long will it take? #Quote by Coretta Scott King
Peaceful Society quotes by Rashida Jones
#7. Sometimes I look at where we've come to, and how much technology and advancement there is, and I can't believe that we're not this perfectly balanced, beautiful, peaceful society. I'm shocked that we're so deeply polarized, that there are people who want progress and they feel guilty for wanting progress, because it somehow seems un-American, because being American means staying ignorant and going backward. #Quote by Rashida Jones
Peaceful Society quotes by Grayson Perry
#8. Examining masculinity can seem like a luxury problem, a pastime for a wealthy, well-educated, peaceful society, but I would argue the opposite: the poorer, the more undeveloped, the more uneducated a society is, the more masculinity needs realigning with the modern world, because masculinity is probably holding back that society. All over the globe, crimes are committed, wars are started, women are being held back, and economies are disastrously distorted by men, because of their outdated version of masculinity. #Quote by Grayson Perry
Peaceful Society quotes by John F. Kennedy
#9. Third, and finally, the educated citizen has an obligation to uphold the law. This is the obligation of every citizen in a free and peaceful society
but the educated citizen has a special responsibility by the virtue of his greater understanding. For whether he has ever studied history or current events, ethics or civics, the rules of a profession or the tools of a trade, he knows that only a respect for the law makes it possible for free men to dwell together in peace and progress. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Peaceful Society quotes by John McCain
#10. In our blessed and mostly peaceful society we're not as familiar with courage as we once were. We ascribe the virtue to all manner of endeavors that only really require skill, fortitude and a little daring, the qualities Pat Tillman showed on the football field. Pat's best service to his country was to remind us all what courage really looks like, and that the purpose of all good courage is love. #Quote by John McCain
Peaceful Society quotes by David Fleming
#11. Localisation stands, at best, at the limits of practical possibility, but it has the decisive argument in its favour that there will be no alternative. #Quote by David Fleming
Peaceful Society quotes by Mark Steyn
#12. The continent has embraced a spiritual death long before the demographic one. In those seventeen European countries that have fallen into the "lowest-low fertility," where are the children? In a way, you're looking at them: the guy sipping espresso at a sidewalk cafe listening to his iPod, the eternal adolescent charges of the paternalistic state. The government makes the grown-up decisions and we spend our pocket money on our record collection...the long-term cost of welfare is the infantilization of the population. The populations of wealthy democratic societies expect to have total choice over their satellite TV package, yet think it perfectly normal to allow the state to make all the choices in respect of their health care. It's a curious inversion of citizenship to demand control over peripheral leisure activities but to contract out the big life-changing stuff to the government. And it's hard to come up with a wake-up call for a society as dedicated as latter-day Europe to the belief that life is about sleeping in. #Quote by Mark Steyn
Peaceful Society quotes by Atul Gawande
#13. Consider the fact that we care deeply about what happens to the world after we die. If self-interests were the primary source of meaning in life, then it wouldn't matter to people if an hour after their death everyone they know were to be wiped from the face of the earth. Yet, it matters greatly to most people. We feel that such an occurrence would make our lives meaningless. The only way death is not meaningless is to see yourself as part of something greater; a family, a community, a society. If you don't, mortality is only a horror, but if you do, it is not. Loyalty, said Royce, solves the paradox of our ordinary existence, by showing us outside of ourselves the cause which is to be served, and inside of ourselves, the will which delights to do this service, and is not thwarted, but enriched and expressed in such service… Above the level of self-actualization in Maslow's hierarchy of needs, they suggest the existence in people of a transcendent desire to see and help other beings achieve their potential.
As our time winds down, we all seek comfort in simple pleasures; companionship, everyday routines, the taste of good food, the warmth of sunlight on our faces. We become less interested in the awards of achieving and accumulating and more interested in the rewards of simply being. Yet, while we may feel less ambitious, we also have become concerned for our legacy, and we have a deep need to identify purposes outside ourselves that make living feel meaningful and wort #Quote by Atul Gawande
Peaceful Society quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#14. Can we not do without the society of our gossip a little while, - have our own thoughts to cheer us? #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Peaceful Society quotes by Whitney Gardner
#15. Chaotic good ones place a high value on free will: they always intend to do the right thing, even if their methods are haphazard and generally out of sync with the rest of society. #Quote by Whitney Gardner
Peaceful Society quotes by Robin Wasserman
#16. Popularity gives you power only over people who care about being popular. Ostracism gives you power only over those who fear being ostracized. #Quote by Robin Wasserman
Peaceful Society quotes by David Marusek
#17. Society can serve its citizens only to the extent that it knows them. #Quote by David Marusek
Peaceful Society quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#18. It is untrue that some are poor because others are rich. If an order of society in which incomes were equal replaced the capitalist order, everyone would become poorer. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Peaceful Society quotes by Joan Didion
#19. More than anyone else in the society, these men had apparently dreamed the dream and made it work. And what they did then was to build a place which seems to illustrate, as in a child's primer, that the production ethic led step by step to unhappiness, to restrictiveness, to entrapment in the mechanics of living. #Quote by Joan Didion
Peaceful Society quotes by Ernst Junger
#20. For the anarch, things are not so simple, especially when he has a background in history. If he remains free of being ruled, whether by sovereigns or by society, this does not mean that he refuses to serve in any way. In general, he serves no worse than anyone else, and sometimes even better, if he likes the game. He only holds back from the pledge, the sacrifice, the ultimate devotion. These are issues of metaphysical integrity ... #Quote by Ernst Junger
Peaceful Society quotes by C. Wright Mills
#21. Xiii- men must ... find their way from false to true consciousness, from their immediate to their real interest. They can do so only if they live in need of changing their way of life, of denying the positive, of refusing, it is precisely this need which the established society manages to repress using the scientific conquest of nature for the scientific conquest of man.
Xvi-the technological society is a system of domination. #Quote by C. Wright Mills
Peaceful Society quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#22. For beauty there must be austerity and a total abandonment, and there cannot be abandonment if there is any sense of ambition expressing itself as an achievement. When there is austerity, there is simplicity, and only the mind that is simple can abandon itself, and out of this abandonment comes love. Such a state is beauty. But of that we are totally unaware. Our civilization, our culture, is based on arrogance, on the sense of achievement, and in society we are at each other's throats, violently competing to achieve, to acquire, to dominate, to become somebody. These are obvious psychological facts. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Peaceful Society quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#23. It's the burglars!" quavered Mrs. Hignett. In the stress of recent
events she had completely forgotten the existence of those enemies
of society. "They were dancing in the hall when I arrived, and now
they're playing the orchestrion!"
"Light-hearted chaps!" said Eustace, admiring the sang-froid of
the criminal world. "Full of spirits! #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Peaceful Society quotes by Dan Millman
#24. If you want a kinder world, then behave with kindness; if you want a peaceful world, make peace within. #Quote by Dan Millman
Peaceful Society quotes by Michael J. Saylor
#25. The basis of the free market is anytime you can generate revenue or profit, you've created value in excess of the resources you consume in a society. That's probably the most unbiased utility function there is, as opposed to someone's opinion. #Quote by Michael J. Saylor
Peaceful Society quotes by Roland Barthes
#26. Wine is a part of society because it provides a basis not only for a morality but also for an environment; it is an ornament in the slightest ceremonials of French daily life, from the snack to the feast, from the conversation at the local cafT to the speech at a formal dinner. #Quote by Roland Barthes
Peaceful Society quotes by Jean Baudrillard
#27. We find the same situation in the economy. On the one hand, the battered remnants of production and the real economy; on the other, the circulation of gigantic amounts of virtual capital. But the two are so disconnected that the misfortunes which beset that capital – stock market crashes and other financial debacles – do not bring about the collapse of real economies any more. It is the same in the political sphere: scandals, corruption and the general decline in standards have no decisive effects in a split society, where responsibility (the possibility that the two parties may respond to each other) is no longer part of the game.
This paradoxical situation is in a sense beneficial: it protects civil society (what remains of it) from the vicissitudes of the political sphere, just as it protects the economy (what remains of it) from the random fluctuations of the Stock Exchange and international finance. The immunity of the one creates a reciprocal immunity in the other – a mirror indifference. Better: real society is losing interest in the political class, while nonetheless availing itself of the spectacle. At last, then, the media have some use, and the 'society of the spectacle' assumes its full meaning in this fierce irony: the masses availing themselves of the spectacle of the dysfunctionings of representation through the random twists in the story of the political class's corruption. All that remains now to the politicians is the obligation to sacrifice themselves #Quote by Jean Baudrillard
Peaceful Society quotes by Henry Sidgwick
#28. Society is like a schoolmaster who estimates boys according to their conformity to a standard that is easiest for running a school. #Quote by Henry Sidgwick
Peaceful Society quotes by Lydia Davis
#29. In those days I did a lot of avoiding that I don't do now - avoiding confrontations, avoiding difficult encounters. And I did a fair amount of lying that I also don't do now.'

'What was strange was how awful this felt. I was treating a person like a thing. And I was betraying not just him but something larger, some social contract. When you knew a decent person was waiting downstairs, someone you had made an appointment with, you did not just not answer the buzzer. What was even more surprising to me was what I felt about myself in that instant. I was behaving as though I had no responsibility to anyone or anything, and that made me feel as though I existed outside society, some kind of criminal, or didn't exist at all. I was annihilating myself even more than him. It was an awful violation. #Quote by Lydia Davis
Peaceful Society quotes by Margaret Mead
#30. Our first and most pressing problem is how to do away with warfare as a method of solving conflicts between national groups within a society who have different views about how the society is to run. #Quote by Margaret Mead
Peaceful Society quotes by Pierre Berton
#31. Will a guaranteed annual wage kill incentive among the poor? If a man is given a certain amount of security, won't he quit working? Exactly the same contention could be made about the sons of the wealthy who are left large fortunes. Yet the evidence suggests that, given economic freedom, people will generally choose to do that which interests them most. It is up to society to see that these interests are widened and that too requires investment. #Quote by Pierre Berton
Peaceful Society quotes by Israel Broussard
#32. I think a lot of people get lost. They start following iconic figures and get drowned in the pool of celebrity. Our society, as we know it, is definitely changing. With social media and cell phones, you freak out when you don't know what's going on. #Quote by Israel Broussard
Peaceful Society quotes by Robyn Heirtzler
#33. A nation of underachievers is easier to control than a society that excels. #Quote by Robyn Heirtzler
Peaceful Society quotes by Daniel J. Levitin
#34. When they find out what I do for a living, many people tell me they love music listening, but their music lessons 'didn't take.' I think they're being too hard on themselves. The chasm between musical experts and everyday musicians that has grown so wide in our culture makes people feel discouraged, and for some reason this is uniquely so with music. Even though most of us can't play basketball like Shaquille O'Neal, or cook like Julia Child, we can still enjoy playing a friendly backyard game of hoops, or cooking a holiday meal for our friends and family. This performance chasm does seem to be cultural, specific to contemporary Western society. And although many people say that music lessons didn't take, cognitive neuroscientists have found otherwise in their laboratories. Even just a small exposure to music lessons as a child creates neural circuits for music processing that are enhanced and more efficient than for those who lack training. Music lessons teach us to listen better, and they accelerate our ability to discern structure and form in music, making it easier for us to tell what music we like and what we don't like. #Quote by Daniel J. Levitin
Peaceful Society quotes by Matthew Shultz
#35. Our biggest struggle as human beings is to project ourselves as something that society has deemed admirable or likable instead of being honest. #Quote by Matthew Shultz
Peaceful Society quotes by George F. Kennan
#36. A political society does not live to conduct foreign policy; it would be more correct to say that it conducts foreign policy in order to live. #Quote by George F. Kennan
Peaceful Society quotes by Jerry Z. Muller
#37. To realize the Enlightenment ideals of formal equality, the rule of law, freedom of commerce, and religious toleration, Voltaire and many of the other philosophes looked to absolutist monarchs, whose policies they hoped to influence. The support of the philosophes for the expansion of the monarch's sovereign power was tactical. It arose not out of a principled belief in the throne, but out of the recognition that only a strong monarchy had the power to override the resistance to enlightened legislation by the privileged churches, estates, and corporations that made up continental European society. (p. 45) #Quote by Jerry Z. Muller
Peaceful Society quotes by Joyce Johnson
#38. And isn't it amazing that suicide is illegal when society is so indifferent to human life? #Quote by Joyce Johnson
Peaceful Society quotes by David Graeber
#39. The police can use violence to say, expel citizens from a public park because they are enforcing duly constituted laws. Laws gain their legitimacy from the Constitution. The Constitution gains its legitimacy from something called 'the people.' But how did 'the people' actually grant legitimacy to the Constitution? As the American and French revolutions make clear: basically, through acts of illegal violence. So what gives the police the right to use force to suppress the very thing–a popular uprising–that granted them their right to use force to begin with? #Quote by David Graeber
Peaceful Society quotes by Om Prakash Valimiki
#40. सदियों से चली आ रही इस प्रथा के पार्श्व में जातीय अहम की पराकाष्ठा है। समाज में जो गहरी खाई है उसे प्रथा और गहरा बनाती है। एक साजिश है हीनता के भँवर में फँसा देने की।

Caste pride is behind this centuries-old custom.
The deep chasm that divides the society is made even deeper by
this custom, a conspiracy to trap us in the whirlpool of inferiority. #Quote by Om Prakash Valimiki
Peaceful Society quotes by Barbara Ehrenreich
#41. When someone works for less pay than she can live on - when, for example, she goes hungry so that you can eat more cheaply and conveniently - then she has made a great sacrifice for you, she has made you a gift of some part of her abilities, her health, and her life. The 'working poor,' as they are approvingly termed, are in fact the major philanthropists of our society. They neglect their own children so that the children of others will be cared for; they live in substandard housing so that other homes will be shiny and perfect; they endure privation so that inflation will be low and stock prices high. To be a member of the working poor is to be an anonymous donor, a nameless benefactor, to everyone else. #Quote by Barbara Ehrenreich
Peaceful Society quotes by John Lloyd Young
#42. I think Frankie Valli did everything right. He kept singing. And you also have to remember, he was confined to a certain society, which was this sort of like - the wrong side of the law kind of society of Italian guys from the streets of Belleville, New Jersey. So he found his way. #Quote by John Lloyd Young
Peaceful Society quotes by Shayne Colaco
#43. I can see the cracks in society, in people, in this world and I'd rather die before slipping into one of them. #Quote by Shayne Colaco
Peaceful Society quotes by Seth Godin
#44. Modern society is based on a modern idea: get the work done by replaceable cogs, by individuals programmed to do what they're told, follow instructions and work cheap. The attraction of this system is evident by how easily ordinary organizations replace ordinary employees, and how eagerly schools indoctrinate their students. #Quote by Seth Godin
Peaceful Society quotes by Neil LaBute
#45. We live in a disposable society. It's easier to throw things out than to fix them. We even give it a name - we call it recycling. #Quote by Neil LaBute
Peaceful Society quotes by Harriet Martineau
#46. If a test of civilization be sought, none can be so sure as the condition of that half of society over which the other half has power. #Quote by Harriet Martineau
Peaceful Society quotes by Stanislaw Lem
#47. A writer should not run around with a mirror for his countrymen; he should tell his society and his times things no one ever thought before. #Quote by Stanislaw Lem
Peaceful Society quotes by Wilhelm Reich
#48. The basic religious idea in all patriarchal religions is the negation of the sexual needs. Only in very primitive religions were religiosity and sexuality identical. When social organization passed from matriarchy to patriarchy and class society, the unity of religious and sexual cult underwent a split; the religious cult became the antithesis of the sexual. With that, the cult of sexuality went out of existence. It was replaced by the brothel, pornography and backstairs-sexuality. It goes without saying that when sexual experiences ceased to be one with the religious cults, when, instead, they became antithetical to them, religious excitation assumed a new function: that of being a substitute for the lost sexual pleasure, now no longer affirmed by society. Only this contradiction inherent in religious excitation makes the strength and the tenacity of the religions understandable: the contradiction of its being at one and the same time antisexual and a substitute for sexuality. #Quote by Wilhelm Reich
Peaceful Society quotes by Alan Moore
#49. I believe that all other political states are in fact variations or outgrowths of a basic state of anarchy; after all, when you mention the idea of anarchy to most people they will tell you what a bad idea it is because the biggest gang would just take over. Which is pretty much how I see contemporary society. We live in a badly developed anarchist situation in which the biggest gang has taken over and have declared that it is not an anarchist situation – that it is a capitalist or a communist situation. But I tend to think that anarchy is the most natural form of politics for a human being to actually practice. #Quote by Alan Moore
Peaceful Society quotes by Eri Nelson
#50. It was a heartwarming peaceful place until I arrived and wrote it differently. #Quote by Eri Nelson
Peaceful Society quotes by Robin Williams
#51. Boys, you must strive to find your own voice, because the longer you wait to begin the less likely you are to find it at all. #Quote by Robin Williams
Peaceful Society quotes by Colin Jordan
#52. The masses will not vote for their own upliftment in a higher order of society. This has to be accomplished without their support and request, despite them and indeed against them. It is absurd to pivot your whole project, as does a conventional party, on the submission of change to the decision of those who so need to be changed. You might as well make the case for law and order conditional on the approval of the criminals. #Quote by Colin Jordan
Peaceful Society quotes by Dr. Michael  Lake
#53. You may think this is far-fetched, but those within the academic community are already discussing the ability to create chimeras and the effects it could have on society. #Quote by Dr. Michael Lake
Peaceful Society quotes by Suzy Kassem
#54. Coolness is not an image that can be bought or worn. True cool is an attitude that is projected from a person who is extremely comfortable in their own skin. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Peaceful Society quotes by Terence Kealey
#55. The dream of a planned, fair, moral, ethical, cash-free society remains strong, particularly among socialists and liberals. It clearly represents a fundamental human instinct. But feudalism just did not work very well, if only because powerful people will not always obey moral imperatives. #Quote by Terence Kealey
Peaceful Society quotes by Charles Sumner
#56. Senators undertake to disturb us... by reminding us of the possibility of large numbers swarming from China; but the answer to all this is very obvious and very simple. If the Chinese come here, they will come for citizenship or merely for labor. If they come for citizenship, then in this desire do they give a pledge of loyalty to our institutions; and where is the peril in such vows? They are peaceful and industrious; how can their citizenship be the occasion of solicitude? #Quote by Charles Sumner
Peaceful Society quotes by Edie Campbell
#57. I think Stella Tennant is amazing. And then I really loved all those '60s society models, like Edie Sedgwick. #Quote by Edie Campbell
Peaceful Society quotes by Samael Aun Weor
#58. The society is the extension of the individual. If the individual is greedy, cruel, merciless, egoistic, etc. so it will be the society. #Quote by Samael Aun Weor
