Social Duties quotes by Louise J. Kaplan
#1. For a woman ... to explore and express the fullness of her sexuality, her ambitions, her emotional and intellectual capacities, her social duties, her tender virtues, would entail who knows what risks and who knows what truly revolutionary alteration to the social conditions that demean and constrain her. Or she may go on trying to fit herself into the order of the world and thereby consign herself forever to the bondage of some stereotype of normal femininity - a perversion, if you will. #Quote by Louise J. Kaplan
Social Duties quotes by Joseph Campbell
#2. The moral, I suppose, would be that the first requirements for a heroic career are the knightly virtues of loyalty, temperance, and courage. The loyalty in this case is of two degrees or commitments: first, to the chosen adventure, but then, also, to the ideals of the order of knighthood. Now, this second commitment seems to put Gawain's way in opposition to the way of the Buddha, who when ordered by the Lord of Duty to perform the social duties proper to his caste, simply ignored the command, and that night achieved illumination as well as release from rebirth. Gawain is a European and, like Odysseus, who remained true to the earth and returned from the Island of the Sun to his marriage with Penelope, he has accepted, as the commitment of his life, not release from but loyalty to the values of life in this world. And yet, as we have just seen, whether following the middle way of the Buddha or the middle way of Gawain, the passage to fulfillment lies between the perils of desire and fear. #Quote by Joseph Campbell
Social Duties quotes by Sigmund Freud
#3. The child is brought up to know its social duties by means of a system of love-rewards and punishments, and in this way it is taught that its security in life depends on its parents (and, subsequently, other people) loving it and being able to believe in its love for them. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Social Duties quotes by Edwin O'Connor
#4. There are, after all, certain social duties that a priest has toward his parishioners, and if that priest is as I was--energetic and gregarious, with an aptitude for such occasions--these duties and occasions have a way of multiplying. There's a great attraction to this: he's doing what he likes to do, and he can tell himself that it's all for the honor and glory of God. He believes this, quite sincerely, and he finds ample support for such belief: on all sides he's assured that he is doing the much-needed job of "waking up the parish." Which is not a hard thing for a young priest to hear; he may even see himself as stampeding souls to their salvation. What he may not see is that he stands in some danger of losing himself in the strangely engrossing business of simply "being busy"; gradually he may find that he is rather uncomfortable whenever he is not "being busy." And, gradually too, he may find fewer and fewer moments in which he can absent himself from activity, in which he can be alone, can be silent, can be still--in which he can reflect and pray. And since these are precisely the moments that are necessary for all of us, in which spiritually we grow, in which, so to speak, we maintain and enrich our connection with God, then the loss of such moments is grave and perilous. Particularly so for a priest--particularly for a priest who suddenly finds that he can talk more easily to a parish committee than he can to God. Something within him will have atrophied from disuse; #Quote by Edwin O'Connor
Social Duties quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#5. Legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church & State. Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Social Duties quotes by Eliza R. Snow
#6. Let your first business be to perform your duties at home. But, inasmuch as you are wise stewards, you will find time for social duties ... By seeking to perform every duty you will find that your capacity will increase, and you will be astonished at what you can accomplish. #Quote by Eliza R. Snow
Social Duties quotes by Ernest Becker
#7. Why would a person prefer the accusations of guilt, unworthiness, ineptitude - even dishonor and betrayal- to real possibility? This may not seem to be the choice, but it is: complete self effacement, surrender to the "others", disavowal of any personal dignity and freedom-on the one hand; and freedom and independence, movement away from the others, extrication of oneself from the binding links of family and social duties-on the other hand. This is the choice that the depressed person actually faces. #Quote by Ernest Becker
Social Duties quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#8. The man who aims at his own aggrandizement underrates everything else. Compared to his ego the rest of the world is unreal. Thus in order to be fully conscious of the reality of all, one has to be free himself from the bonds of personal desires. This discipline we have to go through to prepare ourselves for our social duties - for sharing the burdens of our fellow-beings. Every endeavor to attain a larger life requires of man "to gain by giving away, and not to be greedy." And thus to expand gradually the consciousness of one's unity with all is the striving of humanity. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Social Duties quotes by James Joyce
#9. He had neither companions nor friends, church nor creed. He lived his spiritual life without any communion with others, visiting his relatives at Christmas and escorting them to the cemetery when they died. He performed these two social duties for old dignity's sake but conceded nothing further to the conventions which regulate the civic life. #Quote by James Joyce
Social Duties quotes by Brad Thor
#10. 1. Decrease current human population below five hundred million and keep it in perpetual balance with nature. 2. Guide reproduction wisely - improving fitness and diversity. 3. Unite humanity with a "living" new language. 4. Redistribute global wealth under the more acceptable term "global public goods." 5. Rebalance personal rights with "social duties." 6. Replace passion, faith, and tradition with reason. 7. Make clever use of new technologies to go around national governments and establish direct ties with citizens. 8. Rebrand global governance as equitable, efficient, and the logical next step in human evolution. 9. Discredit, delegitimize, and dismantle the idea of the nation state/national sovereignty. 10. Prepare a mechanism to neutralize any challenges to United Nations' authority. #Quote by Brad Thor
Social Duties quotes by Edmund White
#11. In a novel, I think you have a contract with the reader to make the character representative - of a moment in history, a social class ... for instance, I wanted to make the boy in 'A Boy's Own Story' more like other gay men of my generation in their youth and not like me. #Quote by Edmund White
Social Duties quotes by Ethan Zuckerman
#12. It's my fond hope that social networks such as Facebook will help users broaden their perspectives by listening to a different set of people than they encounter in their daily life. But I fear services such as Facebook may be turning us into imaginary cosmopolitans. #Quote by Ethan Zuckerman
Social Duties quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#13. Everyone knows history is written by the winners, but that cliche misses a crucial detail: Over time, the winners are always the progressives. Conservatism can only win in the short term, because society cannot stop evolving (and social evolution inevitably dovetails with the agenda of those who see change as an abstract positive). It might take seventy years, but it always happens eventually. Serious historians are, almost without exception, self-styled progressives. Radical views
even the awful ones
improve with age. #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Social Duties quotes by Luis Valdez
#14. It's absolutely essential for every generation to capture that social responsibility. Injustice grows like weeds. The injustices of the world are like weeds, and if you do nothing they'll choke your whole garden, man. #Quote by Luis Valdez
Social Duties quotes by Esa-Pekka Salonen
#15. Conducting is intensely social. You work with a hundred people every day. You collaborate, you try to focus their thoughts, you try to give them a concept, you try to inspire them, and it's actually exhausting. #Quote by Esa-Pekka Salonen
Social Duties quotes by Joseph Prince
#16. Television, radio, social media. The 24/7 news cycle plows forward mercilessly on our desks, in our cars and in our pockets. Thousands and thousands of messages and voices bombard us from the moment we wake, fighting for our attention. All we see and hear, all day long, is news. And most of it is bad. #Quote by Joseph Prince
Social Duties quotes by Charles Dance
#17. Runners are the lowest of the low in film units. They're paid very, very minimal wages - probably below the national average. And runners are now being asked to drive actors about, as well as their runner duties. It's kind of the same as taking advantage of nurses - it's appalling. #Quote by Charles Dance
Social Duties quotes by Steven Levitt
#18. As I see it, most major philanthropists have been bullied into giving. They feel social pressure to give. It has become a cost of doing business. #Quote by Steven Levitt
Social Duties quotes by Frank Herbert
#19. Right from the first, the little people who formed the governments which promised to equalize the social burdens found themselves suddenly in the hands of bureaucratic aristocracies. Of course, all bureaucracies follow this pattern, but what a hypocrisy to find this even under a communized banner. Ahhh, well, if patterns teach me anything it's that patterns are repeated. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Social Duties quotes by Diogo Vasconcelos
#20. In the eighties and nineties, the innovation agenda was exclusively focused on enterprises. There was a time in which economic and social issues were seen as separate. Economy was producing wealth, society was spending. In the 21st century economy, this is not true anymore. Sectors like health, social services and education have a tendency to grow, in GDP percentage as well as in creating employment, whereas other industries are decreasing. In the long term, an innovation in social services or education will be as important as an innovation in the pharmaceutical or aerospatial industry. #Quote by Diogo Vasconcelos
Social Duties quotes by Carolyn Heilbrun
#21. Thinking about profound social change, conservatives always expect disaster, while revolutionaries confidently anticipate utopia. Both are wrong. #Quote by Carolyn Heilbrun
Social Duties quotes by Kathleen Norris
#22. Acedia is not a relic of the fourth century or a hang-up of some weird Christian monks, but a force we ignore at our peril. Whenever we focus on the foibles of celebrities to the detriment of learning more about the real world- the emergence of fundamentalist religious and nationalist movements, the economic factors endangering our reefs and rain forests, the social and ecological damage caused by factory farming - acedia is at work. Wherever we run to escape it, acedia is there, propelling us to 'the next best thing,' another paradise to revel in and wantonly destroy. It also sends us backward, prettying the past with the gloss of nostalgia. Acedia has come so far with us that it easily attached to our hectic and overburdened schedules. We appear to be anything but slothful, yet that is exactly what we are, as we do more and care less, and feel pressured to do still more. #Quote by Kathleen Norris
Social Duties quotes by William J. Clinton
#23. Simply put, no society can truly flourish if it stifles the dreams and productivity of half its population. Happily, I see evidence all over the world that women are gaining social and economic power that they never had before. This is good news ... #Quote by William J. Clinton
Social Duties quotes by Laurance Labadie
#24. The "health, education, and welfare" section of government is another boondoggle. First we manufacture indigent and superfluous people by legal monopolies in land, money and idea patents, erecting tariff barriers to protect monopolies from foreign competition, and taxing laborers to subsidize rich farmers and privileged manufacturers. Then we create "social workers, " etc., to care for them and thereby establish a self-aggravating and permanent institutionalized phenomenon ... #Quote by Laurance Labadie
Social Duties quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
#25. At the root of the shy temperament is a deep fear of social judgment, one so severe it can sometimes be crippling. Introverted people don't worry unduly about whether they'll be found wanting, they just find too much socializing exhausting and would prefer either to be alone or in the company of a select few people. #Quote by Jeffrey Kluger
Social Duties quotes by Gilles Deleuze, Felix Guattari
#26. It is illegitimate to conclude from the prohibition anything regarding the nature of what is prohibited; for the prohibition proceeds by dishonouring the guilty, that is to say, by inducing a disfigured or displaced image of the thing that is really prohibited or desired. Indeed, this is how social repression prolongs itself by means of psychic repression without which it would have no grip on desire. #Quote by Gilles Deleuze, Felix Guattari
Social Duties quotes by Tom Cox
#27. People have a habit, in the age of cameraphones and social networking, of being a bit too quick to turn all sorts of experiences into a 'memory'. #Quote by Tom Cox
Social Duties quotes by Atul Gawande
#28. Human beings are social creatures. We are social not just in the trivial sense that we like company, and not just in the obvious sense that we each depend on others. We are social in a more elemental way: simply to exist as a normal human being requires interaction with other people. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Social Duties quotes by Ferdinand De Saussure
#29. Of all social institutions language is least amenable to initiative. It blends with the life of society, and the latter, inert by nature, is a prime conservative force. #Quote by Ferdinand De Saussure
Social Duties quotes by Jean Toomer
#30. Men are apt to idolize or fear that which they cannot understand, especially if it be a woman. #Quote by Jean Toomer
Social Duties quotes by Nirmala Srivastava
#31. To get rid of greed, you should try to do some sort of a collective social work. #Quote by Nirmala Srivastava
Social Duties quotes by Rajneesh
#32. Each child is poisoned by the society through teaching him ambition. Ambition is a poison far more dangerous than any alcohol can ever be, far more dangerous than marijuana or LSD, because ambition destroys your whole life. It keeps you moving in a false direction. It keeps you imagining, desiring, dreaming, it keeps you wasting your life. Ambition means a subtle creation of the ego, and once the ego is created you are in the grip of darkness. And the whole social structure depends on ambition. #Quote by Rajneesh
Social Duties quotes by Catharine Beecher
#33. We are now going through a period of demolition. In morals, in social life, in politics, in medicine, and in religion there is a universal upturning of foundations. But the day of reconstruction seems to be looming, and now the grand question is: Are there any sure and universal principles that will evolve a harmonious system in which we shall all agree? #Quote by Catharine Beecher
Social Duties quotes by Charlotte Wolff, M.D.
#34. Heterosexual people, conforming to conventional dictate, are pillars of the society with which they are identified. Bisexuals and homosexuals, on the other hand, make valiant efforts to free themselves from the fetters of its conditioning power, and therefore come nearer to authentic behaviour. By reason of their rebellion, they are inclined to reject secondhand living as laid down by social conventions. It is not surprising that one finds many of them in the forefront of the fight for a new society, a society when authenticity is the guiding principle. But others are so much caught up in defensive behaviour that they neglect the pursuit of individual freedom in preference for a collective regimentation, which ensures a more successful battle against the cruel and subtle persecution by 'normal people'. Nevertheless, they are, by virtue of their still precarious position, well endowed to realize that the assignment of roles which rules every aspect of behaviour, permeates society like an infectious disease, that there is a social sickness about which leads via hypocrisy and falsity to alienation. Their own fringe position makes them particularly sensitive to the schizoid shortcomings of our society where nobody knows what the other thinks, or feels, and where relationships lose their essential qualities - solidarity and trust. #Quote by Charlotte Wolff, M.D.
Social Duties quotes by Kailin Gow
#35. It's the kind of kitchen people don't just cook in, they live in it. Just stepping into it reminds me of where I am, and I'm at home instantly.", Loving Summer by Kailin Gow #Quote by Kailin Gow
Social Duties quotes by A.J. Muste
#36. Educational enterprises do not for any length of time remain immune from the struggle of interests for power which is the dominant feature of social life under a class system. #Quote by A.J. Muste
Social Duties quotes by Ron Brackin
#37. The problem with today's culture is that we have too many rights and not enough wrongs. #Quote by Ron Brackin
Social Duties quotes by Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
#38. But what is sovereignty? It is, they say, the power to make laws. Another absurdity, a relic of despotism. The nation had long seen kings issuing their commands in this form: for such is our pleasure; it wished to taste in its turn the pleasure of making laws. For fifty years it has brought them forth by myriads; always, be it understood, through the agency of representatives. The play is far from ended.
The definition of sovereignty was derived from the definition of the law. The law, they said, is the expression of the will of the sovereign: then, under a monarchy, the law is the expression of the will of the king; in a republic, the law is the expression of the will of the people. Aside from the difference in the number of wills, the two systems are exactly identical: both share the same error, namely, that the law is the expression of a will; it ought to be the expression of a fact. Moreover they followed good leaders: they took the citizen of Geneva for their prophet, and the contrat social for their Koran.
Bias and prejudice are apparent in all the phrases of the new legislators. The nation had suffered from a multitude of exclusions and privileges; its representatives issued the following declaration: All men are equal by nature and before the law; an ambiguous and redundant declaration. Men are equal by nature: does that mean that they are equal in size, beauty, talents, and virtue? No; they meant, then, political and civil equality. Then it would have been #Quote by Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
Social Duties quotes by Lamar S. Smith
#39. The Supreme Court is not elected, and it is therefore not a proper arbiter of social policy. #Quote by Lamar S. Smith
Social Duties quotes by Melanne Verveer
#40. Women are a dynamic economic force. We represent the largest consumer market in the world and are drivers of GDP. More and more companies recognize that when they support women as customers, employees, leaders, future investors and partners, they are adopting sound business strategies and advancing social progress. #Quote by Melanne Verveer
Social Duties quotes by Miklos Banffy
#41. How would anyone believe that any good was to be obtained by adding the Balkan states to the already unwieldy Dual Monarchy and so increasing the Empire to a hundred million souls with differing cultures and traditions? Of course armies could be recruited and young men could die, but great States evolved only through centuries of social tradition and mutual self-interest; they were not imposed by bayonets. To believe the contrary would be as mad as the folly which had put the Archduke Maximilian on the throne of Mexico. #Quote by Miklos Banffy
Social Duties quotes by Mary Gaitskill
#42. Perhaps it should be obvious: Adultery is a social threat that arouses raw anger and fear, which the bellicose then need to discharge rather than merely feel, traditionally on the philandering wife or the female home-wrecker. #Quote by Mary Gaitskill
Social Duties quotes by Jack Kingston
#43. Most people understand life expectancy has changed since Social Security started in 1937 when folks lived to be 59 years old. Today, they live to be 77 years old. #Quote by Jack Kingston
Social Duties quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#44. Eternal truths will be neither true nor eternal unless they have fresh meaning for every new social situation. #Quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt
Social Duties quotes by Mark Udall
#45. I brag on the Democratic Party. We're libertarian on social issues, it's live and let live. Fiscally, we're conservative and responsible, and were environmentally conscious. #Quote by Mark Udall
Social Duties quotes by Bonnie Wright
#46. It is extremely important to me that the social and environmental issues associated with the production of fashion clothing are addressed. #Quote by Bonnie Wright
Social Duties quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
#47. All things are sold: the very light of heaven is venal; earth's unsparing gifts of love, the smallest and most despicable things that lurk in the abysses of the deep, all objects of our life, even life itself, and the poor pittance which the laws allow of liberty, the fellowship of man, those duties which his heart of human love should urge him to perform instinctively, are bought and sold as in a public mart of not disguising selfishness, that sets on each its price, the stamp-mark of her reign. #Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Social Duties quotes by Bill Pullman
#48. Rural towns aren't always idyllic. It's easy to feel trapped and be aware of social hypocrisy. #Quote by Bill Pullman
Social Duties quotes by Randy Shilts
#49. What society judged was not the severity of the disease but the social acceptability of the individuals affected with it… #Quote by Randy Shilts
Social Duties quotes by William S. McFeely
#50. Born Losers is a beautiful piece of writing. Scott Sandage is history's Dickens; his bleak house, the late nineteenth century world of almost anonymous American men who failed. With wit and sympathy, Sandage illuminates the grey world of credit evaluation, a little studied smothering arm of capitalism. This is history as it should be, a work of art exploring the social cost of our past. #Quote by William S. McFeely
Social Duties quotes by Natasha Bedingfield
#51. I did actually like school. When I was 17, I was in college, but before that, I was home-schooled. I was very social. I liked to know everyone. #Quote by Natasha Bedingfield
