#1. Everyone in the audience knew what that meant. On top of saying they'd possibly wasted more than a decade and millions of research dollars, Gartler was also suggesting that spontaneous transformation - one of the most celebrated prospects for finding a cure for cancer - might not exist. Normal cells didn't spontaneously become cancerous, he said; they were simply taken over by HeLa. - Author: Rebecca Skloot
Culture Contamination quotes by Rebecca Skloot
#2. I used to think that, given enough goodwill, anybody would be able to 'get' any music, no matter how distant the culture from which it came. And then I heard Chinese opera. - Author: Brian Eno
Culture Contamination quotes by Brian Eno
#3. Success is in the student, not in the university; greatness is in the individual, not in the library; power is in the man, not in his crutches. A great man will make opportunities, even out of the commonest and meanest situations. If a man is not superior to his education, is not larger than his crutches or his helps, if he is not greater than the means of his culture, which are but the sign-boards pointing the way to success, he will never reach greatness. Not learning, not culture alone, not helps and opportunities, but personal power and sterling integrity, make a man great. - Author: Orison Swett Marden
Culture Contamination quotes by Orison Swett Marden
#4. Every fact of science was once damned. Every invention was considered impossible. Every discovery was a nervous shock to some orthodoxy. Every artistic innovation was denounced as fraud and folly. The entire web of culture and 'progress,' everything on earth that is man-made and not given to us by nature, is the concrete manifestation of some man's refusal to bow to Authority. We would own no more, know no more, and be no more than the first apelike hominids if it were not for the rebellious, the recalcitrant, and the intransigent. As Oscar Wilde truly said, 'Disobedience was man's Original Virtue. - Author: Robert Anton Wilson
Culture Contamination quotes by Robert Anton Wilson
#5. In that thoroughly evil and violent and depraved culture, there was no hope for those children. This nation was so polluted that it as like gangrene that was taking over a person's leg, and God had to amputate the leg or the gangrene would spread and there wouldn't be anything left. In a sense, God's action was an act of mercy. - Author: Norman L. Geisler
Culture Contamination quotes by Norman L. Geisler
#6. Leadership doesn't occur in a vacuum, it manifests in a context. These contexts are as dynamic as the personalities, stakes, culture and information available. - Author: Michael M. Rose
Culture Contamination quotes by Michael M. Rose
#7. Culture is local; art, universal. - Author: Marty Rubin
Culture Contamination quotes by Marty Rubin
#8. But nobody lives in a universal thing called culture. They live only in specific cultures, each of which differ from one another. Plays written and produced in Germany are three times as likely to have tragic or unhappy endings than plays written and produced in the United States. Half of all people in India and Pakistan say they would marry without love, but only 2 percent of people in Japan would do so. Nearly a quarter of Americans say they are often afraid of saying the wrong things in social situations, whereas 65 percent of all Japanese say they are often afraid. In their book Drunken Comportment, Craig MacAndrew and Robert B. Edgerton found that in some cultures drunken men get into fights, but in some cultures they almost never do. In some cultures drunken men grow more amorous, but in some cultures they do not. - Author: David Brooks
Culture Contamination quotes by David Brooks
#9. We absolutely need diversity [in game designers]. And not just diversity of gender, but diversity of cultures, of ethnicity, of sexuality. If we want to reach beyond the audience we have we've got to bring in more players, and to bring in more players we've got to bring in people who might be able to reach those players. - Author: Brenda Romero
Culture Contamination quotes by Brenda Romero
#10. I didn't choose Russia but Russia chose me. I had been fascinated from an early age by the culture, the language, the literature and the history to the place. - Author: Helen Dunmore
Culture Contamination quotes by Helen Dunmore
#11. I was so overwhelmed by India when I first came - it still inspires me because I still go for the culture, I still go for the colors. - Author: Donna Karan
Culture Contamination quotes by Donna Karan
#12. With relentless selectivity, the Communist machine has winnowed out the grain and retained only the chaff of Western culture. - Author: Richard Crossman
Culture Contamination quotes by Richard Crossman
#13. With all that we hear of American hustle and hurry, it is rather strange that Americans seem to like to linger on longer words. - Author: Gilbert K. Chesterton
Culture Contamination quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#14. Music is language itself. It should not have any barriers of caste, creed, language or anything. Music is one, only cultures are different. Music is the language of languages. It is the ultimate mother of languages. - Author: A.R. Rahman
Culture Contamination quotes by A.R. Rahman
#15. Mature development - does not come from severing the early infantile sense of unity with the Mother, but from reestablishing it. The holistic point of ancient women's religion was that the Mother is not one's personal maternal parent solely, but the entire community of women, the entire living earth, and beyond this the entire surrounding and ongoing cosmic process. One could not be alienated because one is always within this process, as it is always within the self. Unless, of course, such knowledge is suppressed from the outside, by patriarchal conditioning.
Truly, our very sanity is at stake with continuing patriarchy and the denial of the cosmic self - the Goddess - within us all, and within her.
The Great Mother was the projection of the self-experience of groups of highly aware and productive women who were the founders of much of human culture. In this sense the Great Mother is not simply a mental archetype, but a historical fact. - Author: Monica Sjoo Barbara Mor
Culture Contamination quotes by Monica Sjoo Barbara Mor
#16. Focusing on nutrition is the first step that we need to take as a society. Understanding where our food comes from, how it is grown, what is in it, and how it effects our health, are essential to maintaining the well-being of our bodies and our culture. Most of us do not have the slightest clue of where our food comes from or how to produce our own food. To really develop a sustainable lifestyle, we must grow our own food. No matter how much food you are able to grow, the knowledge and experience of growing food are fundamental to our survival as a species. - Author: Joseph P. Kauffman
Culture Contamination quotes by Joseph P. Kauffman
#17. No one leaves his or her world without being transfixed by its roots, or with a vacuum for a soul. We carry with us the memory of many fabrics, a self soaked in our history, our culture; a memory, sometimes scattered, sometimes sharp and clear, of the streets of our childhood, of our adolescence; the reminiscence of something distant that suddenly stands out before us, in us, a shy gesture, an open hand, a smile lost in time and misunderstanding, a sentence, a simple sentence, possibly now forgotten by the one who said it. A word for so long a time attempted and never spoken, always stifled in inhibition, in the fear of being rejected- which as it implies a lack of confidence in ourselves, also means refusal to risk. - Author: Paulo Freire
Culture Contamination quotes by Paulo Freire
#18. Master Salamon usually set off a little later as neither he nor other male members of their community were in the habit of walking on the road alongside their wives. - Author: Swarnakanthi Rajapakse
Culture Contamination quotes by Swarnakanthi Rajapakse
#19. I'm a product of Russian culture, but I never felt it was my country. - Author: Mikhail Baryshnikov
Culture Contamination quotes by Mikhail Baryshnikov
#20. I figured out years ago that the human species is totally fucked and has been for a long time. I also know that the sick, media-consumer culture in America continues to make this so-called problem worse. But the trick, folks, is not to give a fuck. Like me. I really don't
care. I stopped worrying about all this temporal bullshit a long time ago. It's meaningless. - Author: George Carlin
Culture Contamination quotes by George Carlin
#21. I'm not sure many writers are trying to reconcile all the things that are separated in our culture - body and mind, urban and pastoral, lyricism and hardboiled, men and women, joy and grief. I tried to do quite a lot, but I wanted to create a serious work of literature. - Author: Nicola Griffith
Culture Contamination quotes by Nicola Griffith
#22. I must remind you that starving a child is violence. Neglecting school children is violence. Punishing a mother and her family is violence. Discrimination against a working man is violence. Ghetto housing is violence. Ignoring medical need is violence. Contempt for poverty is violence. - Author: Coretta Scott King
Culture Contamination quotes by Coretta Scott King
#23. America was built on rugged individualism, and today that has evolved into a culture of narcissism. But God didn't create you to live for you. If you want to follow Jesus, you have to put aside your selfish ambition. - Author: Rick Warren
Culture Contamination quotes by Rick Warren
#24. Egypt was the first democracy in the Middle East. Women were unveiled in the 1920s. Egypt is a country of civilization, of culture. It shouldn't be suffering. - Author: Ahmed Zewail
Culture Contamination quotes by Ahmed Zewail
#25. As the economy unravels, as hundreds of millions of Americans confront the fact that things will not get better, life for those targeted by this culture of hate will become increasingly difficult. Rational debate will prove useless. - Author: Chris Hedges
Culture Contamination quotes by Chris Hedges
#26. If I have forfeited the ability to wonder so as not to offend the tenets of the culture, and if I have sacrificed warm dreams on the cold altar of conformity, it is likely because I have somewhere traded the marvel of the infinite for the malaise of the finite. - Author: Craig D. Lounsbrough
Culture Contamination quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#27. The idea that the Lord wanted me to make prayer such a driving emphasis seemed counterintuitive to positioning the church for revival. How could it be that quite possibly the most unpopular activity in church culture could become a birthing center for a history-making move of the Holy Spirit? - Author: Michael Brown
Culture Contamination quotes by Michael Brown
#28. Violence is temporary, but learning is permanent. - Author: Patrick Hennessey
Culture Contamination quotes by Patrick Hennessey

#31. Time is money"

This expression says so much about our culture. If time is money, then when we do something that does not involve getting paid, is it a waste of time? A waste of money? - Author: Jamie Cat Callan
Culture Contamination quotes by Jamie Cat Callan
#32. What a shame that Christianity had come here!If the white man had not intruded where he was not wanted, where he did not belong, even now protected by the mountains and the river,the village would have remained a last stronghold of a culture which was almost gone.Mark tried to say that no village,no culture can remain static. I have often thought that if this lively and magnificent land belongs to anyone,it's to the birds and the fish.They were here long before the first Indian and when the last man is gone from the Earth,it will be theirs again. - Author: Margaret Craven
Culture Contamination quotes by Margaret Craven
#33. As I've indicated, most books go out of print within one year. The same is true of music and film. Commercial culture is sharklike. It must keep moving. And when a creative work falls out of favor with the commercial distributors, the commercial life ends. - Author: Lawrence Lessig
Culture Contamination quotes by Lawrence Lessig
#34. But having said that, what's happening with campaign finance reform and our political culture is devastating. - Author: Robert McChesney
Culture Contamination quotes by Robert McChesney
#35. I just think it's sad that the main places in our culture that we designate to meet new people are bars and nightclubs.. - Author: Aziz Ansari
Culture Contamination quotes by Aziz Ansari
#36. Their culture is narrowly interbred, and some personal relations border on the incestuous, so they float each other's boat and write almost identical muck-raking stories. Everyone in China knows why they are, and their China-bashing is green-lighting all of us to join the onslaught. - Author: Thorsten J. Pattberg
Culture Contamination quotes by Thorsten J. Pattberg
#37. Depression and anxiety may be real. But they can also be Resistance. When we drug ourselves to blot out our soul's call, we are being good Americans and exemplary consumers. We're doing exactly what TV commercials and pop materialist culture have been brainwashing us to do from birth. Instead of applying self-knowledge, self-discipline, delayed gratification and hard work, we simply consume a product. Many pedestrians have been maimed or killed at the intersection of Resistance and Commerce. - Author: Steven Pressfield
Culture Contamination quotes by Steven Pressfield
