Socially Responsible quotes by Simon Mainwaring
#1. Transforming a brand into a socially responsible leader doesn't happen overnight by simply writing new marketing and advertising strategies. It takes effort to identify a vision that your customers will find credible and aligned with their values. #Quote by Simon Mainwaring
Socially Responsible quotes by Tristram Stuart

Socially Responsible quotes by Anonymous
#3. the investment pullback came after Portland leaders determined the mega-retailer is "not a socially responsible company." Portland had about $36 million invested in Walmart, or about 2.9 percent of the city's investment portfolio. The city announced Thursday that it would be free of all remaining holdings by 2016. The move was preceded by Portland's adoption of socially responsible investment protocol in October 2013. Portland Commissioner Steve Novick has advocated ending involvement with Walmart based on the retailer's "controversial business and labor practices, #Quote by Anonymous
Socially Responsible quotes by Tim Jackson
#4. There is a real fear around shifting from our existing economic system because people believe it gives us social organisation, a sense of freedom, and the ability to be nice to each other. Growth is seen as a social lubricant that allows us to be socially responsible. #Quote by Tim Jackson
Socially Responsible quotes by Eric Hobsbawm
#5. There is not much that even the most socially responsible scientists can do as individuals, or even as a group, about the social consequences of their activities. #Quote by Eric Hobsbawm
Socially Responsible quotes by Kevin Drum
#6. We need to cut regulations. Apparently this will make everyone a little more socially responsible? #Quote by Kevin Drum
Socially Responsible quotes by Mary Katharine Ham
#7. Let's talk about 'Coexist' bumper stickers for a second. You've definitely seen them around. They're those blue strips with white lettering that assemble a collection of religious icons and mystical symbols (e.g., an Islamic crescent, a Star of David, a Christian cross, a peace sign, a yin-yang) to spell out a simple message of inclusion and tolerance. Perhaps you instinctively roll your eyes at these advertisements of moral correctness. Perhaps you find the sentiment worthwhile, but you're not a wear-your-politics-on-your-fender type of person. Or perhaps you actually have 'Coexist' bumper stickers affixed to both your Prius and your Beamer. Whatever floats your boat, man; far be it from us to cast stones. But we bring up these particular morality minibillboards to illustrate a bothersome dichotomy. If we were to draw a Venn diagram of (a) the people who flaunt their socially responsible "coexist" values for fellow motorists, and (b) the people who believe that, say, an evangelical Christian who owns a local flower shop ought to be sued and shamed for politely declining to provide floral arrangements for a same-sex wedding, the resulting circles would more or less overlap.
The coexist message: You people (i.e., conservatives) need to get on board and start coexisting with groups that might make you uncomfortable. It says so right here on my highly enlightened bumper sticker. But don't you dare ask me to tolerate the 'intolerance' of people with whom I disagree. Because #Quote by Mary Katharine Ham
Socially Responsible quotes by L.R. Knost
#8. Challenging boundaries is not simply social rebellion. It is the catalyst of social evolution. When systems go unchallenged, they grow complacent and corrupt. Raising generation after generation of rule followers and conformists may be more convenient for society, but it inevitably leads to tyranny and, ultimately, revolution. Raising independent thinkers, conscious objectors, and peaceful activists creates a social balance that can endure. Peaceful parenting, then, by its very nature, is socially responsible because it creates the catalysts of social evolution that protect our society from the complacency and corruption that lead to tyranny and revolution. #Quote by L.R. Knost
Socially Responsible quotes by Kevin Carson
#9. Our goal is not to assume leadership of existing institutions, but rather to render them irrelevant. We don't want to take over the state or change its policies. We want to render its laws unenforceable. We don't want to take over corporations and make them more 'socially responsible.' We want to build a counter-economy of open-source information, neighborhood garage manufacturing, permaculture, encrypted currency and mutual banks, leaving the corporations to die on the vine along with the state. We do not hope to reform the existing order. We intend to serve as its grave-diggers. #Quote by Kevin Carson
Socially Responsible quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#10. Still it is true that many same-sex couples want nothing more than to join society as fully integrated socially responsible family-centered taxpaying Little League-coaching nation-serving respectably married citizens. So why not welcome them in Why not recruit them by the vanload to sweep in on heroic wings and save the flagging and battered old institution of matrimony from a bunch of apathetic ne'er-do-well heterosexual deadbeats like me #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Socially Responsible quotes by Bruce Sterling
#11. America hadn't really been suited for its long and tiresome role as the Last Superpower, the World's Policeman. As a patriotic American, Oscar was quite content to watch other people's military coming home in boxes for a while. The American national character wasn't suited for global police duties. It never had been. Tidy and meticulous people such as the Swiss and the Swedes were the types who made good cops. America was far better suited to be the World's Movie Star. The world's tequila-addled pro-league bowler. The world's acerbic, bipolar stand-up comedian. Anything but a somber and tedious nation of socially responsible centurions. #Quote by Bruce Sterling
Socially Responsible quotes by Mary Rose O'Reilley
#12. Finding voice is a socially responsible political act. We don't just do it for ourselves. And helping someone to find voice demands a spiritual partnership with that seeker. It's an exercise of compassion. #Quote by Mary Rose O'Reilley
Socially Responsible quotes by Simon Mainwaring
#13. Move your personal investments and retirement funds to socially responsible investment (SRI) funds that support only those corporations that uphold higher standards of behavior. Returns on SRI funds are usually equal to, if not better than, many of the well-known traditional mutual funds. #Quote by Simon Mainwaring
Socially Responsible quotes by Dean Koontz
#14. When she returned, she smiled and said, "We were at the movies once, and this dork took two phone calls during the film. Later we followed him, and Andre broke both his legs with a baseball bat."
This proved that even the most evil people could occasionally have a socially responsible impulse. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Socially Responsible quotes by Henry Giroux
#15. We need to educate students to be critical agents, to learn how to take risks, engage in thoughtful dialogue, and taking on the crucial issue what it means to be socially responsible. #Quote by Henry Giroux
Socially Responsible quotes by Vijay Seshadri
#16. I would say that when I write prose I'm a more socially responsible person. I'm much more a citizen of the world. But the instability of the poetry, the emotional jaggedness, is also me. #Quote by Vijay Seshadri
Socially Responsible quotes by Klaus Schwab
#17. Business cycles naturally entail peaks and troughs in employment, and socially responsible businesses should follow successful examples like Coca-Cola, Alcoa, Saudi Aramco, Africa Rainbow Minerals, and Google in working toward mitigating joblessness and enhancing people's abilities to earn a livelihood. #Quote by Klaus Schwab
Socially Responsible quotes by Kailin Gow
#18. Online sites who allow bullying and group harassment to continue after the victim notify the site about it, will one day be held accountable for not helping end a crime. - Strong by Kailin Gow about the Consumer Websites that Should Be Socially Responsible #Quote by Kailin Gow
Socially Responsible quotes by Mark A. Noll
#19. In sum, the ability of what had once been a socially responsible, moderately intellectual, Arminian evangelical Methodism and a socially responsible, reasonably comprehensive, Calvinistic Presbyterianism to make any kind of a sharp Christian impact on Christian thought, society, politics, or spirituality was fatally compromised by what Barry Mack has very precisely labelled 'the tragic failure of Church Union. #Quote by Mark A. Noll
Socially Responsible quotes by Robert Reich
#20. In the early 1970s, Milton Friedman argued that corporations should not be socially responsible because they had no mandate to be; they existed to make money, not to be charitable institutions. But in the economy of the 21st century, corporations cannot be socially responsible, if social responsibility is understood to mean sacrificing profits for the sake of some perceived social good. That's because competition has become so much more intense. #Quote by Robert Reich
Socially Responsible quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#21. By its very nature and design, Network Marketing is a strikingly Fair, Democratic, Socially Responsible system of generating wealth. #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
Socially Responsible quotes by Questlove
#22. Reagan's neglect of the inner city is responsible for hiphop. Hiphop is created thanks to the conditions that crack set: easy money but a lot of work, the violence involved, the stories it produced. Crack helped birth hiphop. #Quote by Questlove
Socially Responsible quotes by Paola Antonelli
#23. While an artist can choose whether or not to be responsive and responsible towards other human beings, by definition a designer must be. #Quote by Paola Antonelli
Socially Responsible quotes by Pope John Paul II
#24. Solidarity is not a feeling of vague compassion or shallow distress at the misfortunes of so many people, both near and far. On the contrary, it is a firm and persevering determination to commit oneself to the common good; that is to say to the good of all and of each individual, because we are all really responsible for all #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Socially Responsible quotes by Larry Fessenden
#25. Sometimes I am more interested in the richness of the material with all the stuff we've done which all tell a story to me rather than any single film career I could have, because I really do find myself interested in other people's ideas. I just want to be responsible with an array of things that engage me and feel vital, opposed to the corporate media out there that is just about making the loudest noises possible. #Quote by Larry Fessenden
Socially Responsible quotes by Osho
#26. Destructiveness cannot bring happiness; destruction is against the law of creation. The law of creation is to be creative. So Buddha says if you are destructive you will be miserable.If you are envious, infatuated, competitive, ambitious, jealous, possessive, you will be in misery.
_____________
In Buddhist terminology there is nothing like sin, only mistakes, errors. There is no condemnation. You can correct the error, you can correct the mistake. It is simple.
__________
One has to leave the parents, one has to leave the home, one has to leave the past. one has to become totally independent, alone ... trembling in that aloneness, but one has to become alone. One has to become absolutely responsible for oneself, and then only can understand the mind. If you go on depending on others, your very dependence will not allow you to understand who you are. #Quote by Osho
Socially Responsible quotes by Susan Sontag
#27. Most valuable art in our time has been experienced by audiences as a move into silence (or unintelligibility or invisibility or inaudibility); a dismantling of the artist's competence, his responsible sense of vocation - and therefore as an aggression against them. Modern #Quote by Susan Sontag
Socially Responsible quotes by Melina Marchetta
#28. I can live without you,' she said. 'I can live without a man I've only known for one hundred and eighty days.'

'And how have those calculations helped?' he demanded to know.

She didn't respond except for a look down her nose at him and a curl of her lip. So much for the angry half-spirits being responsible for the savages within them both. This was pure Quintana.

'Then step away,' he taunted. 'If you can live without me, step away.'
He felt her warm breath on his throat.

'Because you can't,' he said. 'You think you can, but we're bound, and not just by the gods or by a curse or even by our son. We are bound by our free will. And you can't step away, because you are not willing.'

He bent, his mouth close to hers.
'Step away,' he whispered. 'If you step away I'll learn from you. I'll find the desire in me to live without you. Much the same as you want to live without me. #Quote by Melina Marchetta
Socially Responsible quotes by Suzanne Collins
#29. They'll be granted immunity!" I feel myself rising from my chair, my voice full of resonant. "You will personally pledge this in front of the entire population of District Thirteen and the remainder of Twelve. Soon. Today. It will be recorded for future generations. You will hold yourself and your government responsible for their safety, or you'll find yourself another Mockingjay! #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Socially Responsible quotes by Harry Emerson Fosdick
#30. The all but unanimous judgment seems to be that we, the democracies, are just as responsible for the rise of the dictators as the dictatorships themselves, and perhaps more so. #Quote by Harry Emerson Fosdick
Socially Responsible quotes by Sydney Pollack
#31. I see my job as trying to entertain you, to be balanced in some way, and morally responsible. I don't want to glorify a killer. I don't want to glorify a rapist. I don't want to do those things, but on the other hand I don't want to lecture to you, either. #Quote by Sydney Pollack
Socially Responsible quotes by Neil Peart
#32. Drumming completely eclipsed my life from age 13, when I started drum lessons. Everything disappeared. I'd done well in school up until that time. I was fairly adjusted socially up until that time. And I became completely monomania, obsessed all through my teens. Nothing else existed anymore. #Quote by Neil Peart
Socially Responsible quotes by Lawrence Wright
#33. I don't hold America responsible for the largely oppressive governments in the 22 Arab countries. There are repressive Arab governments that are our allies and there are those that are our nominal enemies. It doesn't make a whole lot of difference to what extent we're involved in propping up those governments. #Quote by Lawrence Wright
Socially Responsible quotes by Anna Deavere Smith
#34. That artists are called to be more responsible and 'true' is a tip of hat to their power. #Quote by Anna Deavere Smith
Socially Responsible quotes by Charles Baudelaire
#35. If wine disappeared from human production, I believe there would be, in the health and intellect of the planet, a void, a deficiency far more terrible than all the excesses and deviations for which wine is made responsible. Is it not reasonable to suggest that people that never drink wine, whether naive or doctrinaire, are fools or hypocrites ... ? #Quote by Charles Baudelaire
Socially Responsible quotes by Penny Reid
#36. DEDICATION To my computer: I couldn't have written this without you To the software developers responsible for spellcheck: You are my everyday heroes To Karen: I hope this makes you laugh and makes you proud. To my readers (all 3 of you): Thank you #Quote by Penny Reid
Socially Responsible quotes by Mark Lawson
#37. I have a confession to make. Yesterday, I was responsible for the deaths of millions of Britons. What happened is that MI5 asked me to trail Mehan Asnik, a suspected terrorist, through the streets of London. He had escaped from our security services while infected with a plague virus. Tracking him on CCTV, I swear I had him but then, in the rush-hour bustle, lost him. When the secure mobile rang, it was Harry Pearce at Thames House, chewing me out for the slaughter that had been caused by my mistake. #Quote by Mark Lawson
Socially Responsible quotes by Camille Paglia
#38. Most people aren't sure what's going to happen on a first date. Given that ambiguity, every woman must be totally aware at every moment that she is responsible for every choice she makes ... protect yourselves. See trouble coming. #Quote by Camille Paglia
Socially Responsible quotes by Michael J. Sandel
#39. Parental love is not contingent on the talents and attributes the child happens to have. We choose our friends and spouses at least partly on the basis of qualities we find attractive. But we do not choose our children. Their qualities are unpredictable, and even the most conscientious parents cannot be held wholly responsible for the kind of child they have. That is why parenthood, more than other human relationships, teaches what the theologian William F. May calls an openness to the unbidden. #Quote by Michael J. Sandel
Socially Responsible quotes by George W. Bush
#40. I've directed the full resources of our intelligence and law enforcement communities to find those responsible and bring them to justice. We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them. #Quote by George W. Bush
Socially Responsible quotes by Girdhar Joshi
#41. If you are anguished with your failures, you despise and accuse those very adversities and held them responsible for your debacle. #Quote by Girdhar Joshi
Socially Responsible quotes by Alice Boyes
#42. Surround Yourself with Others Who Are Already Doing What You Want to Do

My all-time favorite success tip for people who tend to hesitate excessively is to regularly interact with people who are already successfully doing what you want to do. Why will this help you moderate your tortoise tendencies? Emotions, thoughts, and behaviors all tend to be socially contagious. Therefore, if you surround yourself with people who are already acting in the ways you need to act, this will likely rub off on you. You'll be more likely to take action.
Another key reason for interacting with others who are already succeeding in your field is that many of the key pieces of information that will help you succeed won't be shared in books or other public forums. They're likely passed from person to person. You'll get to know these insider secrets only by befriending successful people. #Quote by Alice Boyes
Socially Responsible quotes by Noam Chomsky
#43. In 1949, China declared independence - an event known in Western discourse as 'the loss of China' in the U.S. - with bitter recriminations and conflict over who was responsible for that loss. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Socially Responsible quotes by Anthony William
#44. Your gut includes the stomach, small intestine, large intestine (which includes the colon), liver, and gallbladder. The gut is responsible for ensuring that you absorb the nutrients of the food you eat, properly expel waste and toxins, and maintain a strong immune system. Yet not only is it critical for these everyday functions, your gut also holds a life force of its own. Food does not digest just from the physical process of food breakdown (a process scientific study hasn't fully pieced together); there are also critical spiritual and metaphysical factors involved in digestion. That's why enlightened beings on the planet employ eating techniques such as slow and thorough chewing; mindful, present eating; prayer before, during, or after meals; and becoming one with your food. #Quote by Anthony William
Socially Responsible quotes by Buck Brannaman
#45. In life, we don't know why things happen. I believe God is not responsible for the bad things that happen to you. Sometimes I think He's responsible for the good things, but sometimes it's something you shape up for yourself. #Quote by Buck Brannaman
Socially Responsible quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#46. The churches should be responsible for the faulty value system we now see in our society. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Socially Responsible quotes by Kurt Eichenwald
#47. I have no problem with responsible gun owners who own weapons for self-protection, hunting, or just sport. The ones who believe they have a constitutional right to 100-round magazines to fight off I don't know what - a zombie apocalypse? - try to shut down dialogue with threats and other macho posing because of their flawed beliefs. #Quote by Kurt Eichenwald
Socially Responsible quotes by Graeme Macrae Burnet
#48. If one's cup of water is foul, one must first ascertain if the well is poisoned. If we find that the well is indeed polluted, it may have some bearing on whether or not he is responsible for his deeds. #Quote by Graeme Macrae Burnet
Socially Responsible quotes by Terry Eagleton
#49. It is most certainly Christianity itself which is primarily responsible for the intellectual sloppiness of its critics. Apart from the single instance of Stalinism, it is hard to think of a historical movement that has more squalidly betrayed its own revolutionary origins ... For the most part, it has become the creed of the suburban well-to-do, not the astonishing promise offered to the riffraff and undercover anti-colonial militants with whom Jesus himself hung out ... This brand of piety is horrified by the sight of a female breast, but considerably less appalled by the obscene inequalities between rich and poor. #Quote by Terry Eagleton
Socially Responsible quotes by Augustin Matata Ponyo
#50. Justice can help reduce sexual violence: bringing to justice those soldiers responsible for sexual violence discourages other soldiers from committing such crimes. #Quote by Augustin Matata Ponyo
Socially Responsible quotes by Jay Inslee
#51. The 1st Congressional District contains almost half of the biotech and biomedical companies in Washington, and my job often allows me to meet the people responsible for this exciting research. #Quote by Jay Inslee
Socially Responsible quotes by Stephen Hawking
#52. Galileo , perhaps more than any other single person, was responsible for the birth of modern science. #Quote by Stephen Hawking
Socially Responsible quotes by Nick Denton
#53. I've never really understood people who climb socially by sucking up. It seems like the least efficient way to climb, and also the most psychologically debilitating. #Quote by Nick Denton
