Civilization quotes
Civilization
Civilization depends on morality.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The civilized savage is the worst of all savages.

- Weber, C. J.
In our civilization, and under our republican form of government, intelligence is so highly honored that it is rewarded by exemption from the cares of office.

- Ambrose Bierce
The writer in western civilization has become not a voice of his tribe, but of his individuality. This is a very narrow-minded situation.

- Appelfeld, Aharon
Every civilization that has ever existed has ultimately collapsed.

- Henry Kissinger
Simplicity is the peak of civilization.

- Jessie Sampter
Civilization is the process of reducing the infinite to the finite.

- Oliver Wendell Holmes
The fact is, that civilization requires slaves. The Greeks were quite right there. Unless there are slaves to do the ugly, horrible, uninteresting work, culture, and contemplation become almost impossible. Human slavery is wrong, insecure, and demoralizing. On mechanical slavery, on the slavery of the machine, the future of the world depends.

- Oscar Wilde
One of the indictments of civilizations is that happiness and intelligence are so rarely found in the same person.

- William Feather
Our civilization, bequeathed to us by fierce adventurers, eaters of meat and hunters, is so full of hurry and combat, so busy about many things which perhaps are of no importance, that it cannot but see something feeble in a civilization which smiles as it refuses to make the battlefield the test of excellence.

- Joyce, James
We say that slavery has vanished from European civilization, but this is not true. Slavery still exists, but now it applies only to women and its name is prostitution.

- Hugo, Victor
The test of civilization is its estimate of women.

- Curtis, George William
Humor has been a fashioning instrument in America, cleaving its way through the national life, holding tenaciously to the spread elements of that life. Its mode has often been swift and coarse and ruthless, beyond art and beyond established civilization. It has engaged in warfare against the established heritage, against the bonds of pioneer existence. Its objective --the unconscious objective of a disunited people --has seemed to be that of creating fresh bonds, a new unity, the semblance of a society and the rounded completion of an American type.

- Rourke, Constance
Disinterested intellectual curiosity is the life blood of real civilization.

- G. M. Trevelyan
You can't say civilization don't advance...in every war they kill you a new way.

- Will Rogers
The two World Wars came in part, like much modern literature and art, because men, whose nature is to tire of everything in turn, tired of common sense and civilization.

- Lucan, F. L.
Civilization is very much an immature and ongoing experiment, the success of which is by no means yet proven.

- Colin Turnbull
The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind of self-government; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.

- James Madison
Clearly, a civilization that feels guilty for everything it is and does will lack the energy and conviction to defend itself.

- Jean Francois Revel
