Society quotes

Men are made uneasy; they flinch; they cannot bear the sudden light; a general restlessness supervenes; the face of society is disturbed, or perhaps convulsed; old interests and old beliefs have been destroyed before new ones have been created. These symptoms are the precursors of revolution; they have preceded all the great changes through which the world has passed.

- Buckle, Henry Thomas

A society made up of individuals who were all capable of original thought would probably be unendurable.

- Mencken, H. L.

We are born charming, fresh and spontaneous and must be civilized before we are fit to participate in society.

- Judith Martin

Solitude is as needed to the imagination as society is wholesome to the character.

- Lowell, James Russell

The instinct of nearly all societies is to lock up anybody who is truly free. First, society begins by trying to beat you up. If this fails, they try to poison you. If this fails too, they finish by loading honors on your head.

- Jean Cocteau

In free society art is not a weapon. Artists are not engineers of the soul.

- Kennedy, John F.

As a remedy to life in society I would suggest the big city. Nowadays, it is the only desert within our means.

- Camus, Albert

Suspicion is the companion of mean souls, and the bane of all good society.

- Paine, Thomas

Yet we can maintain a free society only if we recognize that in a free society no one can win all the time. No one can have his own way all the time, and no one is right all the time.

- Nixon, Richard M.

Society in shipwreck is comfort to all.

- Syrus, Publilius

Patriotism is an ephemeral motive that scarcely ever outlasts the particular threat to society that aroused it.

- Diderot, Denis

Courts of law, and all the paraphernalia and folly of law cannot be found in a rational state of society.

- Owen, Robert

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

To love our neighbor as ourselves is such a truth for regulating human society, that by that alone one might determine all the cases in social morality.

- Locke, John

Society has traditionally always tried to find scapegoats for its problems. Well, here I am.

- Marilyn Manson

Society is a masked ball, where every one hides his real character, and reveals it by hiding.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo

No civilized society can thrive upon victims, whose humanity has been permanently mutilated.

- Tagore, Rabindranath

In America every woman has her set of girl-friends; some are cousins, the rest are gained at school. These form a permanent committee who sit on each other's affairs, who come out together, marry and divorce together, and who end as those groups of bustling, heartless well-informed club-women who govern society. Against them the Couple of Ehepaar is helpless and Man in their eyes but a biological interlude.

- Connolly, Cyril

What it comes down to is that modern society discriminates against the right hemisphere.

- Sperry, Roger

What can you say about a society that says God is dead and Elvis is alive?

- Irv Kupcinet
