Society quotes
Society is like the air; necessary to breathe, but insufficient to live on.

- George Santayana
The price which society pays for the law of competition, like the price it pays for cheap comforts and luxuries, is great; but the advantages of this law are also greater still than its cost -- for it is to this law that we owe our wonderful material development, which brings improved conditions in its train. But, whether the law be benign or not, we must say of it: It is here; we cannot evade it; no substitutes for it have been found; and while the law may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it ensures the survival of the fittest in every department.

- Carnegie, Andrew
All men plume themselves on the improvement of society, and no man improves.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Society never advances. It recedes as fast on one side as it gains on the other. Society acquires new arts, and loses old instincts.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
It cannot be denied that for a society which has to create scarcity to save its members from starvation, to whom abundance spells disaster, and to whom unlimited energy means unlimited power for war and destruction, there is an ominous cloud in the distance though at present it be no bigger than a man's hand.

- Eddington, Arthur Stanley
The world is upheld by the veracity of good men: they make the earth wholesome. They who lived with them found life glad and nutritious. Life is sweet and tolerable only in our belief in such society.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
I am as frustrated with society as a pyromaniac in a petrified forest.

- Brown, A. Whitney
Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage's whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men.

- Ayn Rand
There is no such thing as society: there are individual men and women, and there are families.

- Thatcher, Margaret
There is no nonsense so gross that society will not, at some time, make a doctrine of it and defend it with every weapon of communal stupidity.

- Robertson Davies
People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.

- Lombardi, Vince
It is difficult to accept death in this society because it is unfamiliar. In spite of the fact that it happens all the time, we never see it.

- KuBler-Ross, Elisabeth
Society is founded upon cloth.

- Carlyle, Thomas
Solitude shows us what should be; society shows us what we are.

- Robert Cecil
Avoid fresh meats, which angry up the blood. If your stomach disputes you, lie down and pacify it with cool thoughts. Keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move. Go very light in the vices such as carrying on in society. The social ramble ain't restful. Don't look back. Someone might be gaining on you.

- Paige, Leroy ''Satchel''
Half of the secular unrest and dismal, profane sadness of modern society comes from the vain ideas that every man is bound to be a critic for life.

- Henry Van Dyke
I am sorry I have not learnt to play at cards. It is very useful in life: it generates kindness, and consolidates society.

- Johnson, Samuel
It wasn't idealism that made me, from the beginning, want a more secure and rational society. It was an intellectual judgment, to which I still hold. When I was young its name was socialism. We can be deflected by names. But the need was absolute, and is still absolute.

- Williams, Raymond
If you have any doubts that we live in a society controlled by men, try reading down the index of contributors to a volume of quotations, looking for women's names.

- Elaine Gill
The only yardstick for success our society has is being a champion. No one remembers anything else.

- Madden, John
