Society quotes
Society
The primary function of myth is to validate an existing social order. Myth enshrines conservative social values, raising tradition on a pedestal. It expresses and confirms, rather than explains or questions, the sources of cultural attitudes and values. Because myth anchors the present in the past it is a sociological charter for a future society which is an exact replica of the present one.

- Oakley, Ann
One set of messages of the society we live in is: Consume. Grow. Do what you want. Amuse yourselves. The very working of this economic system, which has bestowed these unprecedented liberties, most cherished in the form of physical mobility and material prosperity, depends on encouraging people to defy limits.

- Sontag, Susan
In an industrial society which confuses work and productivity, the necessity of producing has always been an enemy of the desire to create.

- Raoul Vaneigem
Society is like the air; necessary to breathe, but insufficient to live on.

- George Santayana
I repeat, sir, that in whatever position you place a woman she is an ornament to society and a treasure to the world. As a sweetheart, she has few equals and no superiors; as a cousin, she is convenient; as a wealthy grandmother with an incurable distemper, she is precious; as a wet-nurse, she has no equal among men. What, sir, would the people of the earth be without woman? They would be scarce, sir, almighty scarce.

- Twain, Mark
Men can know more than their ancestors did if they start with a knowledge of what their ancestors had already learned....That is why a society can be progressive only if it conserves its traditions.

- Walter Lippmann
Society is held together by our need; we bind it together with legend, myth, coercion, fearing that without it we will be hurled into that void, within which, like the earth before the Word was spoken, the foundations of society are hidden.

- Baldwin, James
A society which allows an abominable event to burgeon from its dung heap and grow on its surface is like a man who lets a fly crawl unheeded across his face or saliva dribble from his mouth -- either epileptic or dead.

- Baudrillard, Jean
Beautiful credit! The foundation of modern society. Who shall say that this is not the golden age of mutual trust, of unlimited reliance upon human promises? That is a peculiar condition of society which enables a whole nation to instantly recognize point and meaning in the familiar newspaper anecdote, which puts into the mouth of a distinguished speculator in lands and mines this remark: -- I wasn't worth a cent two years ago, and now I owe two millions of dollars.

- Twain, Mark
No one would talk much in society if they knew how often they misunderstood others.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Captial punishment is our society's recognition of the sanctity of human life.

- Orrin Hatch
The car as we know it is on the way out. To a large extent, I deplore its passing, for as a basically old-fashioned machine, it enshrines a basically old-fashioned idea: freedom. In terms of pollution, noise and human life, the price of that freedom may be high, but perhaps the car, by the very muddle and confusion it causes, may be holding back the remorseless spread of the regimented, electronic society.

- Ballard, J. G.
The society of women is the element of good manners.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
In the state of nature...all men are born equal, but they cannot continue in this equality. Society makes them lose it, and they recover it only by the protection of the law.

- Charles de Montesquieu
The best things and best people rise out of their separateness; I'm against a homogenized society because I want the cream to rise.

- Frost, Robert
Man seeketh in society comfort, use and protection.

- Sir Francis Bacon
Society is composed of two great classes, those that have more dinners than appetite, and those who have more appetite than dinners.

- Chamfort, Sebastien-Roch Nicolas De
Such is the remorseless progression of human society, shedding lives and souls as it goes on its way. It is an ocean into which men sink who have been cast out by the law and consigned, with help most cruelly withheld, to moral death. The sea is the pitiless social darkness into which the penal system casts those it has condemned, an unfathomable waste of misery. The human soul, lost in those depths, may become a corpse. Who shall revive it?

- Hugo, Victor
Fit yourself for the best society, and then, never enter it.

- Ruskin, John
Societies that do not eat people are fascinated by those that do.

- Wright, Ronald
