#1. We know that for mankind to move forward, changes must be made. However, if an old man is wise only by his gray hair, yet it is inevitable that this wisdom will also become impaired by age, then it can be deduced that we cannot expect the very old or very young to make progressive strides to better society, it must be up to the men and women still in the prime of their lives to re-learn and teach the changes needed to be made. - Author: Suzy Kassem
Changes To Society quotes by Suzy Kassem
#2. Society has always said: Make money. Artists have said: But there's something else. Cliché City. But in Hollwood there's the Big Lie that you can have both. A lie you want to believe. - Author: Jerry Stahl
Changes To Society quotes by Jerry Stahl
#3. You must learn the art of disappearance to protect yourself from the stupid! This art will save your time and your energy and it will keep your mind's purity. And what is this art? It is to isolate yourself for a particular period of time from the society! - Author: Mehmet Murat Ildan
Changes To Society quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#4. The writer's job is to write with rigor, with commitment, to defend what they believe with all the talent they have. I think that's part of the moral obligation of a writer, which cannot be only purely artistic. I think a writer has some kind of responsibility at least to participate in the civic debate. I think literature is impoverished, if it becomes cut from the main agenda of people, of society, of life. - Author: Mario Vargas-Llosa
Changes To Society quotes by Mario Vargas-Llosa
#5. Twice damned, in truth, and yet by quirk of timing and fate accepted into that society denied to so many others. - Author: Stephen Lloyd Jones
Changes To Society quotes by Stephen Lloyd Jones
#6. As changes take place in my life, I continue to watch them truly work out for my good-if I can just wait on God to see me through. What makes all the difference is trust-the understanding that God has a much bigger plan than mine even if I don't understand it. I'm grateful, yet sorry, that I have had to learn so many lessons by hindsight. - Author: Kathy Troccoli
Changes To Society quotes by Kathy Troccoli
#7. I think nowadays, women are breaking the borders or the boundaries and also trying to give a new interpretation in terms of impact you can have to the society. - Author: Yang Lan
Changes To Society quotes by Yang Lan
#8. Every social system is more or less against nature, and at every moment nature is at work to reclaim her rights. - Author: Paul Valery
Changes To Society quotes by Paul Valery
#9. There happened in the Middle Ages what has happened so often since then. Those who were the beneficiaries of the established order were bent on defending it, not so much, perhaps, because it guaranteed their interests, as because it seemed to them indispensable to the preservation of society. - Author: Henri Pirenne
Changes To Society quotes by Henri Pirenne
#10. The danger to a free society is not the guns owned by the citizens but an unconstrained government ... An armed society is a self-governing society, just as a disarmed people are vulnerable to arbitrary power of every kind. - Author: Llewellyn Rockwell
Changes To Society quotes by Llewellyn Rockwell
#11. Guilt simply says that you are a sinner. And the feeling of shame simply shows you that you need not be a sinner, that you are meant to be a saint. If you are a sinner it is only because of your unconsciousness; you are not a sinner because the society follows a certain morality and you are not following it. - Author: Rajneesh
Changes To Society quotes by Rajneesh
#12. Parikrma aims to give underprivileged children an equal chance at education so they can integrate with kids of private schools and, later, with the society. I want these children to hold high-end jobs at multinational companies and not work at the lower end of the spectrum. - Author: Shukla Bose
Changes To Society quotes by Shukla Bose
#13. After a war, the silencing of arms is not enough. Peace means respecting all rights. You can't respect one of them and violate the others. When a society doesn't respect the rights of its citizens, it undermines peace and leads it back to war. - Author: Maria Julia Hernandez
Changes To Society quotes by Maria Julia Hernandez
#14. What happens to people living in a society where everyone in power is lying, stealing, cheating and killing, and in our hearts we all know this, but the consequences of facing all these lies are so monstrous, we keep on hoping that maybe the corporate government administration and media are on the level with us this time.
Americans remind me of survivors of domestic abuse.
This is always the hope that this is the very, very, very last time one's ribs get re-broken again. - Author: Inga Muscio
Changes To Society quotes by Inga Muscio
#15. Well, if I weren't so insecure, I would have had neither the opportunity nor the inclination to spend every day of my life getting really good at seeming confident. - Author: Hank Green
Changes To Society quotes by Hank Green
#16. Average is very acceptable in our society but I don't think the angels are applauding. If you are determined to be excellent, to not back out of it, you will reap a harvest in your life. - Author: Joyce Meyer
Changes To Society quotes by Joyce Meyer
#17. All changes in clothes rise out of the lives of the people who wear them. The function of the designer is simply to see a little ahead of time what the people want, and to provide it. No designer can start anything really new and different unless there is a public all ready for it ... - Author: Elizabeth Hawes
Changes To Society quotes by Elizabeth Hawes
#18. Deuteronomy's notion of tithes - that for two out of three years surplus is shared broadly with the disadvantaged, and in the third year is given to them outright - is sound economics when seen in light of conceptions of redistributive economics in primitive societies. In modern capitalist societies, surplus earnings are placed into savings, and insurance policies are taken out to hedge against various forms of adversity. The laws of tithing may be construed as another element in a program of primitive insurance. In a premodern society, A will give some of his surplus in a good year to B, who may have fallen on hard times in exchange for B's commitment to reciprocate should their roles one day be reversed. - Author: Joshua A. Berman
Changes To Society quotes by Joshua A. Berman
#19. Sexual abuse of children now presents society with the ultimate crisis of patriarchy, when children refuse to protect their fathers by keeping secrets. - Author: Beatrix Campbell
Changes To Society quotes by Beatrix Campbell
#20. Second Changes Are not given to make things right, But to prove that we could be better even after we fail - Author: Wendy Prince
Changes To Society quotes by Wendy Prince
#21. In short, one who loves the illusion of the good is eventually won over to actually loving the good. But how can love of the illusion of the good lead to love of the good itself? If one loves the illusion of the good and enacts this illusion in social intercourse, one might come to appreciate its worth and to love the good itself for its own sake. Correlatively, from the point of view of the spectator, loving the illusion of the good in others may make us act politely in order to become lovable, which leads us to exercise our self-mastery, control our passions, and, eventually, to love the good for its own sake. In this sense, paradoxically, by deceiving others through politeness and social pretence, we in fact deceive ourselves and transform our pragmatic, polite behavior into virtuous behavior: by deceiving others through the pretence of virtue, we foster civil society, and in doing so, deceive ourselves by transforming our pretense of virtue into a disposition for virtue itself. Does not this line of thought recall Pascal's advice to non-believers who would like to believe, but cannot bring themselves to accomplish the leap of faith? "Kneel down, pray, act as if you believe, and belief will come by itself. - Author: Slavoj Zizek
Changes To Society quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#22. In our society (that is, advanced western society) we have lost even the pretence of a common culture. Persons educated with the greatest intensity we know can no longer communicate with each other on the plane of their major intellectual concern. This is serious for our creative, intellectual and, above all, normal life. It is leading us to interpret the past wrongly, to misjudge the "present, and to deny our hopes of the future. It is making it difficult or impossible for us to take good action. - Author: C.P. Snow
Changes To Society quotes by C.P. Snow
#23. In modern society, it is not enough to be an engineer, a doctor, a chemist, a biologist, or a physicist, you must be all of them to understand why human health is failing on such a massive scale. - Author: Steven Magee
Changes To Society quotes by Steven Magee
#24. The history of the African-American, also, is so morally outrageous as to make the fact that there has never been an official apology almost unbelievable. A strange psychological phenomenon occurs when a truth is so big, so obvious, that it becomes, in some perverse way, almost easy to resist. The history of racism in the United States is so cruel yet systemic in our society. Perhaps we fear we could not bear the feelings of guilt that would be unleashed were we to make to African-Americans a sincere and heartfelt amends. The truth is it is not our guilt that would be unleashed but our love. Making a formal apology to African-Americans is what we need to do in order to morally resurrect as a nation. - Author: Marianne Williamson
Changes To Society quotes by Marianne Williamson
#25. As American culture changes, the scandal of Christianity is increasingly right up front, exactly where it was in the first century. The shaking of American culture will get us back to the question Jesus asked his disciples at Caesarea Philippi: "Who do you say that I am?" As the Bible Belt recedes, those left standing up for Jesus will be those who, like Simon Peter of old, know how to answer that question. Once Christianity is no longer seen as part and parcel of patriotism, the church must offer more than "What would Jesus do?" moralism and the "I vote values" populism to which we've grown accustomed. Good. - Author: Russell D. Moore
Changes To Society quotes by Russell D. Moore
#26. But I think it's important to discuss just how easy it is for any of us to get caught up in things that might seem unthinkable - to get sucked into the wrong environment and make moral compromises that can tarnish us terribly. We like to think that we change our environment, but the truth is that it changes us. So we have to be extraordinarily careful to choose the right environment - to work with, and even socialize with, the right people. Ideally, we should stick close to people who are better than us so that we can become more like them. - Author: Guy Spier
Changes To Society quotes by Guy Spier
#27. As a result of changes which, over the last century, have modified our empirically based pictures of the world and hence the moral value of many of its elements, the "human religious ideal" inclines to stress certain tendencies and to express itself in terms which seem, at first sight, no longer to coincide with the "christian religious ideal". - Author: Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
Changes To Society quotes by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
#28. One turns back and submits to fate, changes one's attitude, and finds peace in perseverance. - Author: Hellmut Wilhelm
Changes To Society quotes by Hellmut Wilhelm
#29. In a moment of doubt about the socialist record Eric Hobsbawm once wrote: 'If the left have to think more seriously about the new society, that does not make it any the less desirable or necessary or the case against the present one any less compelling.'1 There, in a nutshell, is the sum of the New Left's commitment. We know nothing of the socialist future, save only that it is both necessary and desirable. Our concern is with the 'compelling' case against the present, which leads us to destroy what we lack the knowledge to replace. - Author: Roger Scruton
Changes To Society quotes by Roger Scruton
#30. In my work, I see a lot of women who suffer from low self-esteem. They think they're unattractive, but the way society today - " "I don't think I'm unattractive," she says. "That's good. That's great. It's not something women are always aware of on a conscious level, though. So, I would like you to be open-minded to the possibility that perhaps, deep down, you might be feeling unattractive without being aware of it. And if that's the case, you might feel there's no point in even trying to look better." "Yeah but, no. I don't think I'm unattractive. And I don't think it subconsciously either. - Author: Amanda Filipacchi
Changes To Society quotes by Amanda Filipacchi
#31. When we lived in a society where we had large families that lived together, especially in agricultural societies like my grandfather and father grew up in, the result is you always had family around to take care of you. - Author: Atul Gawande
Changes To Society quotes by Atul Gawande
#32. Many words and expressions which only a matter of decades ago were considered so distastefully explicit that, were they merely to be breathed in public, the perpetrator would be shunned, barred from polite society, and in extreme cases shot through the lungs, are now thought to be very healthy and proper, and their use in everyday speech and writing is evidence of a well-adjusted, relaxed and totally un****ed-up personality. - Author: Douglas Adams
Changes To Society quotes by Douglas Adams
#33. What really has expanded is not so much a circle of empathy as a circle of rights - a commitment that other living things, no matter how distant or dissimilar, be safe from harm and exploitation. Empathy has surely been historically important in setting off epiphanies of concern for members of overlooked groups. But the epiphanies are not enough. For empathy to matter, it must goad changes in policies and norms that determine how the people in those groups are treated. At these critical moments, a newfound sensitivity to the human costs of a practice may tip the decisions of elites and the conventional wisdom of the masses. But as we shall see in the section on reason, abstract moral argumentation is also necessary to overcome the built-in strictures on empathy. The ultimate goal should be policies and norms that become second nature - Author: Steven Pinker
Changes To Society quotes by Steven Pinker
#34. Americans and other Westerners who want their families to enjoy the blessings of life in a free society should understand that the life we've led since 1945 in the Western world is very rare in human history. Our children are unlikely to enjoy anything so placid, and may well spend their adult years in an ugly and savage world unless we decide that who and what we are is worth defending. - Author: Mark Steyn
Changes To Society quotes by Mark Steyn
#35. Learning is a process whereby a human being, or group, or organization, or society comes to understand and embody nature's patterns. - Author: Tom Johnson
Changes To Society quotes by Tom Johnson
#36. Society says that to free a man from his demons you have to lock him in a cage; I say to lock his demons in a cage you have to free the man from society. - Author: Jakk Folley
Changes To Society quotes by Jakk Folley
#37. In the future it will become even easier for old negatives to become lost and be ?replaced? by new altered negatives. This would be a great loss to our society. Our cultural history must not be allowed to be rewritten. - Author: George Lucas
Changes To Society quotes by George Lucas
#38. Asking big "WHY" question is to dig through the root cause of changes, how to manage it and achieve a more tangible result. - Author: Pearl Zhu
Changes To Society quotes by Pearl Zhu
#39. Make your book of life a musical. Never abandon obligations, but have fun leaving behind a colorful legacy. Never allow anybody to be the composer of your own destiny. Take control of your life, and don't allow limitations implanted by society tell you how your music is supposed to sound - or how your book is supposed to be written. - Author: Suzy Kassem
Changes To Society quotes by Suzy Kassem
#40. The modern world is reversing the old virtues of authority. They aimed deliberately to make men unworldly. They did not aim to found society on a full use of the earth's resources; they did not aim to use the whole nature of man; they did not intend him to think out the full expression of his desires. Democracy is a turning point upon those ideals in a pursuit, at first unconsciously, of the richest life that men can devise for themselves. - Author: Walter Lippmann
Changes To Society quotes by Walter Lippmann
#41. Statistically and emotionally, I believe that the way I can be of help to society is by doing what I know and what I've been good at. - Author: Tom Peters
Changes To Society quotes by Tom Peters
