#1. You do not realize what can happen when you liberate a mind from what society calls reason. - Author: Ben Willoughby
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Ben Willoughby
#2. The idea that intelligence can be quantitatively measured along a single linear scale has caused untold harm to our society in general, and to education in particular. - Author: Neil Postman
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Neil Postman
#3. Throughout human history the waste of mind has been appalling, and, as this story is meant to show, society has conspired to promote it. No doubt the teacher is the worst criminal, but the world stands behind him and drags the student from his course. - Author: Henry Adams
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Henry Adams
#4. Since humans are by nature tribal, the overall goal is to expand the concept of the tribe to include ALL members of the species, in a global free society. - Author: Michael Shermer
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Michael Shermer
#5. To discover the meaning of what is called "social justice" has been one of my chief preoccupations for more than 10 years. I have failed in this endeavour or rather, have reached the conclusion that, with reference to society of free men, the phrase has no meaning whatever. - Author: Friedrich August Von Hayek
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#6. It is as if, in today's permissive society, transgressive violations are allowed only in a "privatized" form, as a personal idiosyncrasy deprived of any public, spectacular, or ritualistic dimension. We can thus publicly confess all our weird private practices, but they remain simply private idiosyncrasies. Perhaps we should also invert here the standard formula of fetishistic disavowal: "I know very well (that I should obey the rules), but nonetheless ... (I occasionally violate them, since this too is part of the rules)." In contemporary society, the predominant stance is rather: "I believe (that repeated hedonistic transgressions are what make life worth living), but nonetheless ... (I know very well that these transgressions are not really transgressive, but are just artificial coloring serving to re-emphasize the grayness of social reality). - Author: Slavoj Zizek
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#7. To cheer myself up, I try to remember the difference between short-term and long-term success. Living a good life and making a real mark on society is a marathon, not a sprint. - Author: Tim Gunn
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Tim Gunn
#8. There are times when a society is so totally controlled by an ideology that the greatest need is that someone simply identify a point where he can say a clear no in the name of his loyalty to a higher authority. We have no right to say that those who refused to enroll in the racist crusade of Adolf Hitler should first have been obligated practically or morally to propose an alternative social strategy before they had the right to refuse. - Author: John Howard Yoder
Cincinnatus Society quotes by John Howard Yoder
#9. People have to struggle to live and, frequently, to live in an undignified way. One cause of this situation, in my opinion, is in the our relationship with money, and our acceptance of its power over ourselves and our society. - Author: Pope Francis
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Pope Francis
#10. I didn't point out that Courtney and I were hardly BFFs. In Mom's world everyone under the age of eighteen was friends with everyone else, like we were all part of some secret society of minors. - Author: Gemma Halliday
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Gemma Halliday
#11. Society asks of most men more than sheer intellect ability-it demands also moral hardiness, self-discipline, a competitive spirit and other qualities that in more old-fashioned terms we might simply call character. - Author: Julius Adams Stratton
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Julius Adams Stratton
#12. one could not attain greater personal excellence without also paving the way for everyone else in society to attain it as well. - Author: Christopher Phillips
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Christopher Phillips
#13. In Indiana, gays and lesbians can be fired from their jobs with impunity, and in Arkansas, it's the same thing. We need those protective laws to truly have an equal society. - Author: George Takei
Cincinnatus Society quotes by George Takei
#14. One's duty is to feel what is great, cherish the beautiful, and to not accept the conventions of society with the ignominy that it imposes upon us. - Author: Gustave Flaubert
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Gustave Flaubert
#15. Education should not be fun. You are being brought up into society and society has a way of doing things. It may not be pleasant but sooner or later you are going to have to do it anyway. - Author: Robert M. Pirsig
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Robert M. Pirsig
#16. Civilization on Earth planet was equated with selfishness and greed; those people who lived in a civilized state exploited those who did not. There were shortages of vital commodities on Earth planet, and the people in the civilized nations were able to monopolize those commodities by reason of their greater economic strength. This imbalance appeared to be at the root of the
disputes. - Author: Christopher Priest
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Christopher Priest
#17. Religion in America ... Must be regarded as the foremost of the political institutions for that country; for if it does not impart a taste for freedom, it facilitates the use of it ... I do know know whether all Americans have a sincere faith in their religion - for who can search the human heart? - But I am certain that they hold it to be indispensable to the maintenance of republican institutions. This opinion is not peculiar to a class of citizens or a party, but it belongs to the whole nation and to every rank of society. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#18. The socialists are sometimes wont to reproach liberalism with a lack of
consistency, It is, they maintain, illogical to restrict the activity of the state in the economic sphere exclusively to the protection of property. It is difficult to see why, if the state is not to remain completely neutral, its intervention has to be limited to protecting the rights of property owners.
This reproach would be justified only if the opposition of liberalism to all governmental activity in the economic sphere going beyond the protection of property stemmed from an aversion in principle against any activity on the part of the state. But that is by no means the case. The reason why liberalism opposes a further extension of the sphere of governmental activity is precisely that this would, in effect, abolish private ownership of the means of production. And in private property the liberal sees the principle most suitable for the organization of man's life in society.
The Foundations of Liberal Policy
Liberalism is therefore far from disputing the necessity of a machinery of state, a system of law, and a government. It is a grave misunderstanding to associate it in any way with the idea of anarchism. For the liberal, the state is an absolute necessity, since the most important tasks are incumbent upon it: the protection not only of private property, but also of peace, for in the absence of the latter the full benefits of private property cannot be reaped. - Author: Ludwig Von Mises
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#19. If I wanted anyone killed, I'd kill them myself. But I don't want anyone killed because I love my own life. Does that make any sense? I love life and I love living, but no, I don't want to live in society. Society don't want me, why should I want them? I don't belong in society and there's no place in society that I fit. - Author: Charles Manson
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Charles Manson
#20. I'm making a lot of money. I should be paying a lot more taxes. I'm not paying taxes at a rate that is even close to what people were paying under Eisenhower. Do people think America wasn't ascendant and wasn't an upwardly mobile society under Eisenhower in the '50s? Nobody was looking at the country then and thinking to themselves, "We're taxing ourselves into oblivion." Yet there isn't a politician with balls enough to tell that truth because the whole system has been muddied by the rich. It's been purchased. - Author: David Simon
Cincinnatus Society quotes by David Simon
#21. As an artist I recognise that I have been brought up Pākehā, but am intrigued about addressing this mixing of culture in my life and society as a whole. I interpret this in different ways in my work, and have no answers. - Author: Lisa Walker
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Lisa  Walker
#22. People who climb from one rung of society to another can never do anything simply. - Author: Honore De Balzac
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Honore De Balzac
#23. A robust Liberian middle-class fosters the advancement of social wealth and a well-educated Liberian society. - Author: Henry Johnson Jr
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Henry Johnson Jr
#24. The conscientious objector is a revoultionary. On deciding to disobey the law he sacrifices his personal interests to the most important cause of working for the betterment of society. - Author: Albert Einstein
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Albert Einstein
#25. Among the people to whom he belonged, nothing was written or talked about at that time except the Serbian war. Everything that the idle crowd usually does to kill time, it now did for the benefit of the Slavs: balls, concerts, dinners, speeches, ladies' dresses, beer, restaurants - all bore witness to our sympathy with the Slavs.

With much that was spoken and written on the subject Konyshev did not agree in detail. He saw that the Slav question had become one of those fashionable diversions which, ever succeeding one another, serve to occupy Society; he saw that too many people took up the question from interested motives. He admitted that the papers published much that was unnecessary and exaggerated with the sole aim of drawing attention to themselves, each outcrying the other. He saw that amid this general elation in Society those who were unsuccessful or discontented leapt to the front and shouted louder than anyone else: Commanders-in-Chief without armies, Ministers without portfolios, journalists without papers, and party leaders without followers. He saw that there was much that was frivolous and ridiculous; but he also saw and admitted the unquestionable and ever-growing enthusiasm which was uniting all classes of society, and with which one could not help sympathizing. The massacre of our coreligionists and brother Slavs evoked sympathy for the sufferers and indignation against their oppressors. And the heroism of the Serbs and Montenegrins, fighting for a - Author: Leo Tolstoy
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#26. You and I live at a moment of history that is simultaneously terrible and wonderful. Terrible because of the condition of the society in which we are destined to live out our lives. Wonderful because of the unprecedented opportunities to make a difference in the destiny of a nation and the world. - Author: Philip Lancaster
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Philip Lancaster
#27. At bottom, the battle has been waged on moral grounds. The country has debated whether a society for which the dignity of the individual is the supreme value can, without a fundamental inconsistency, follow the practice of deliberately putting one of its members to death. - Author: William J. Brennan
Cincinnatus Society quotes by William J. Brennan
#28. Whenever a society wants to demonize a particular group, it prohibits them from marrying. - Author: Sheila Kuehl
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Sheila Kuehl
#29. The truth is, it is the younger inexperience gangsters who often cut down the older original gangsters. The best way for this young thug to prove himself to others, is to simply cut down an established gangster.
Thus, this cruel cycle of senseless violence repeats itself, with the younger being more vicious and rootless than his predecessor. It's the dog, who kills the lion, and once he has killed the lion, he's no longer a dog; he's now a lion himself. - Author: Drexel Deal
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Drexel Deal
#30. In my opinion, if, as the result of certain combinations, Kepler's or Newton's discoveries could become known to people in no other way than by sacrificing the lives of one, or ten, or a hundred or more people who were hindering the discovery, or standing as an obstacle in its path, then Newton would have the right, and it would even be his duty... to remove those ten or a hundred people, in order to make his discoveries known to mankind. It by no means follows from this, incidentally, that Newton should have the right to kill anyone he pleases, whomever happens along, or to steal from the market every day. Further, I recall developing in my article the idea that all... well, let's say, the lawgivers and founders of mankind, starting from the most ancient and going on to the Lycurguses, the Solons, the Muhammads, the Napoleons, and so forth, that all of them to a man were criminals, from the fact alone that in giving a new law, they thereby violated the old one, held sacred by society and passed down from their fathers, and they certainly did not stop at shedding blood either, if it happened that blood (sometimes quite innocent and shed valiantly for the ancient law) could help them. - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#31. Is it my imagination, or does shipping and handling settle a box of crackers more than it used to? - Author: Robert Breault
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Robert Breault
#32. To find stability within the world, one must first find stability within. - Author: Tyler J. Hebert
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Tyler J. Hebert
#33. How have we come to a place in society where millions of babies can be slaughtered and disposed of in the name of progress? Shocking but real. - Author: Ravi Zacharias
Cincinnatus Society quotes by Ravi Zacharias
