#1. As I've said before, "the Mod generation", contrary to popular belief, was not born in even 1958, but in the 1920s after a steady gestation from about 1917 or so. Now, Mod certainly came of age, fully sure of itself by 1958, completely misunderstood by 1963, and in a perpetual cycle of reinvention and rediscovery of itself by 1967 and 1975, respectively, but it was born in the 1920s, and I will maintain this. I don't care who disagrees with me, and there are dozens of reasons that I do so - from the Art Deco aesthetic, to flapper fashions (complete with bobbed hair), to androgyny and subtle effeminacy, to jazz. - Author: Ruadhan J. McElroy
Mod Culture quotes by Ruadhan J. McElroy
#2. Good music often starts in underground culture and then comes to the surface. - Author: Felix Buxton
Mod Culture quotes by Felix Buxton
#3. We've switched from a culture that was interested in manufacturing, economics, politics - trying to play a serious part in the world - to a culture that's really entertainment-based. - Author: Stephen King
Mod Culture quotes by Stephen King
#4. Much of our highly valued cultural heritage has been acquired at the cost of sexuality. - Author: Sigmund Freud
Mod Culture quotes by Sigmund Freud
#5. Our culture promotes individuality, while the Amish are deeply entrenched in community. To us, if someone stands out, it's no big deal because diversity is respected and expected. To the Amish, there's no room for deviation from the norm. It's important to fit in, because that similarity of identity is what defines the society. If you don't fit in, the consequences are psychological tragic, you stand alone when all you've ever known is being part of the group. - Author: Jodi Picoult
Mod Culture quotes by Jodi Picoult
#6. Anecdotes came with his DNA. - Author: Chris Matthews
Mod Culture quotes by Chris Matthews
#7. A culture which doesn't believe in region and religion is like a rock music, noise for old generation & nirvana for the young ones. - Author: Megha Khare
Mod Culture quotes by Megha Khare
#8. I really like the reggae concepts like the culture vibe. They speak on everything that's going on, they don't have limits. They speak on politics, they speak on life, they speak on the troubles of poverty, everything. The message, the melodies and the concepts of reggae music are unbelievable. - Author: Sean Kingston
Mod Culture quotes by Sean Kingston
#9. If a culture treats a particular illness with compassion and enlightened understanding, then sickness can be seen as a challenge, as a healing crisis and opportunity. Being sick is then not a condemnation or a moral judgement, but a movement in a larger process of healing and restoration. When sickness is viewed positively and in supportive terms, then illness has a much better chance to heal, with the concomitant result that the entire person may grown and be enriched in the process. - Author: Ken Wilber
Mod Culture quotes by Ken Wilber
#10. In any case, [y]ou can't teach a monkey to speak and you can't teach an Arab to be democratic. You're dealing with a culture of thieves and robbers. Muhammad, their prophet, was a robber and a killer and a liar. The Arab destroys everything he touches. - Author: Moshe Feiglin
Mod Culture quotes by Moshe Feiglin
#11. How can a rational being be ennobled by any thing that is not obtained by its own exertions? - Author: Mary Wollstonecraft
Mod Culture quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#12. Israel is a wonderful place to be an artist - a place where imagination flourishes. Israeli culture is refreshingly avant garde - making films, music, performance art and visual art that continues to push the envelope, inspire and empower. - Author: Ryan Kavanaugh
Mod Culture quotes by Ryan Kavanaugh
#13. Many years ago Christian pioneers had to fight savage Indians. Today missionaries of these former cultures are being sent via the public schools to heathenize our children. - Author: Phyllis Schlafly
Mod Culture quotes by Phyllis Schlafly
#14. It's not worth it, it's not about money, especially when you're dealing with a culture. It should be about elevating the idea of what we are and who we are as people in the cinema, and that kind of stuff keeps dragging us back down. - Author: Antoine Fuqua
Mod Culture quotes by Antoine Fuqua
#15. 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
Mod Culture quotes by Jamie Cat Callan
#16. Now I am old-fashioned. A woman, I consider, should be womanly. I have no patience with the modern neurotic girl who jazzes from morning to night, smokes like a chimney, and uses language which would make a billingsgate fishwoman blush! - Author: Agatha Christie
Mod Culture quotes by Agatha Christie
#17. All play aspires to the condition of paradise ... through play in all its forms ... we hope to achieve a state that our larger Greco-Roman, Judeo- Christian culture has always known was lost. Where it exists, we do not know, although we always have envisioned it as a garden ... always as removed, as an enclosed green place ... Paradise is an ancient dream ... It is a dream of ourselves as better than we are, back to what we were. - Author: A. Bartlett Giamatti
Mod Culture quotes by A. Bartlett Giamatti
#18. [Biographical info on Rita]
Born and raised in a Sephardic Jewish family in which culture and love of learning were categorical imperatives, she abandoned religion and embraced atheism. She devoted herself to Science, getting to the point of renouncing marriage for scientific research.
... Unlike other people, Rita Levi Montalcini was a complete human being. - Author: Rita Levi-Montalcini
Mod Culture quotes by Rita Levi-Montalcini
#19. The peculiar predicament of the present-day self surely came to pass as a consequence of the disappointment of the high expectations of the self as it entered the age of science and technology. Dazzled by the overwhelming credentials of science, the beauty and elegance of the scientific method, the triumph of modern medicine over physical ailments, and the technological transformation of the very world itself, the self finds itself in the end disappointed by the failure of science and technique in those very sectors of life which had been its main source of ordinary satisfaction in past ages.

As John Cheever said, the main emotion of the adult Northeastern American who has had all the advantages of wealth, education, and culture is disappointment.

Work is disappointing. In spite of all the talk about making work more creative and self-fulfilling, most people hate their jobs, and with good reason. Most work in modern technological societies is intolerably dull and repetitive.

Marriage and family life are disappointing. Even among defenders of traditional family values, e.g., Christians and Jews, a certain dreariness must be inferred, if only from the average time of TV viewing. Dreary as TV is, it is evidently not as dreary as Mom talking to Dad or the kids talking to either.

School is disappointing. If science is exciting and art is exhilarating, the schools and universities have achieved the not inconsiderable feat of rendering bot - Author: Walker Percy
Mod Culture quotes by Walker Percy
#20. The fact is the physical chemists never use their eyes and are most lamentably lacking in chemical culture. It is essential to cast out from our midst, root and branch, this physical element and return to our laboratories. - Author: Henry Edward Armstrong
Mod Culture quotes by Henry Edward Armstrong
#21. It is confusing, because in this culture we really don't have anything that corresponds to geisha. - Author: Arthur Golden
Mod Culture quotes by Arthur Golden
#22. In a post-modern culture we need an apologetic that is felt and seen because if post-moderns are not feeling it, they are not believing it. - Author: Ravi Zacharias
Mod Culture quotes by Ravi Zacharias
#23. Oh, no, no, you've got that all wrong. You're not required to respect elders. After all, most people are idiots, regardless of age. In tribal cultures, we just make sure that elders remain an active part of the culture, even if they're idiots. Especially if they're idiots. You can't just abandon your old people, even if they have nothing intelligent to say. Even if they're crazy. - Author: Sherman Alexie
Mod Culture quotes by Sherman Alexie
#24. Your kids will not be stepping from or into a vacuum of culture when they
enter your tinkering space. As Rogoff writes, learning often happens by means of
"transformative participation in shared socio-cultural endeavors." That means you'll
see kids change and grow as they participate in your little community of tinkerers.
Linda Polin similarly maintains that your kids will learn "through a process of en-culturation into a slowly but constantly evolving practice." Your tinkerers will learn
stuff as they become familiar with the norms of your tinkering environment, which
is also constantly updating, if you will, in response to them. - Author: Curt Gabrielson
Mod Culture quotes by Curt Gabrielson
#25. Asiatic youths are flocking to Western colleges for the equipment of modern education. Our insight does not penetrate your culture deeply, but at least we are willing to learn. Some of my compatriots have adopted too much of your customs and too much of your etiquette, in the delusion that the acquisition of stiff collars and tall silk hats comprised the attainment of your civilisation. Pathetic and deplorable as such affectations are, they evince our willingness to approach the West on our knees. - Author: Okakura Kakuzo
Mod Culture quotes by Okakura Kakuzo
#26. No matter who you are, no matter what you did, no matter where you've come from, you can always change, become a better version of yourself. - Author: Madonna
Mod Culture quotes by Madonna
#27. As a writer, I've always believed that while my work and I myself are embedded in whatever period I am writing about, clearly I am sensitive to the winds that are blowing in the culture. At the same time, I have always felt that the issue was not to deal with the problem in the abstract, but to deal with the people who are in that problem. The emphasis is on the people. The general problem begins to resolve itself even before the play is finished. - Author: Arthur Miller
Mod Culture quotes by Arthur Miller
#28. Worship songs can't just be rooted in culture - they won't be deep enough. They have to be rooted in scripture. - Author: Matt Redman
Mod Culture quotes by Matt Redman
#29. There is no greater wealth than wisdom, no greater poverty than ignorance; no greater heritage than culture and no greater support than consultation. - Author: Ali Ibn Abi Talib
Mod Culture quotes by Ali Ibn Abi Talib
#30. My culture and my language have the right to exist, and no one has the authority to dismiss that. - Author: James Kelman
Mod Culture quotes by James Kelman
#31. Life itself has become the final disposable, exploitable resource. We will do anything. Level whole mountains, erase whole species, relocate mighty rivers, burn forests to the ground, change the pH of the water, blanket ourselves in toxic chemistry. It took two million years for our species just to stand up and only five hundred to do the rest. Our culture is one of abundance, of entitlement, and basically little else. We've put our birthright at risk because we don't know how to control ourselves. Our lust. - Author: Stephen Markley
Mod Culture quotes by Stephen Markley
#32. As for the primitive, I hark back to it because we are still very primitive. How many thousands of years of culture, think you, have rubbed and polished at our raw edges? One probably; at the best, no more than two. And that takes us back to screaming savagery, when, gross of body and deed, we drank blood from the skulls of our enemies, and hailed as highest paradise the orgies and carnage of Valhalla. - Author: Jack London
Mod Culture quotes by Jack London
#33. Avoiding the appearance of queenly behavior is politically wise. But it does American culture no favors if a first lady tries so hard to be average that she winds up looking common, - Author: Robin Givhan
Mod Culture quotes by Robin Givhan
#34. Unfortunately, our culture doesn't seem to remember much about how you celebrate things without buying a bunch of unnecessary stuff and without consuming a bunch of unnecessary sugar. - Author: Eve O. Schaub
Mod Culture quotes by Eve O. Schaub
#35. Men who have great riches and little culture rush into business, because they are weary of themselves. - Author: Horace Greeley
Mod Culture quotes by Horace Greeley
#36. In Korean, my lyrics are witty and have twists. But translated into English, it doesn't come over. I've tried writing in English, just for me, but it doesn't work. I've got to know everything about a culture, and I don't. - Author: Psy
Mod Culture quotes by Psy
#37. No one has expressed what is needed better than Abdel Rahman al-Rashed, the general manager of the London-based al-Arabiya news channel. One of the best-known and most respected Arab journalists working today, he wrote the following, in Al-Sharq Al-Awsat (September 6, 2004), after a series of violent incidents involving Muslim extremist groups from Chechnya to Saudi Arabia to Iraq: "Self-cure starts with self-realization and confession. We should then run after our terrorist sons, in the full knowledge that they are the sour grapes of a deformed culture... The mosque used to be a haven, and the voice of religion used to be that of peace and reconciliation. Religious sermons were warm behests for a moral order and an ethical life. Then came the neo-Muslims. An innocent and benevolent religion, whose verses prohibit the felling of trees in the absence of urgent necessity, that calls murder the most heinous of crimes, that says explicitly that if you kill one person you have killed humanity as a whole, has been turned into a global message of hate and a universal war cry... We cannot clear our names unless we own up to the shameful fact that terrorism has become an Islamic enterprise; an almost exclusive monopoly, implemented by Muslim men and women. We cannot redeem our extremist youth, who commit all these heinous crimes, without confronting the Sheikhs who thought it ennobling to reinvent themselves as revolutionary ideologues, sending other people's sons and daughters to cer - Author: Thomas L. Friedman
Mod Culture quotes by Thomas L. Friedman
#38. Like Nazis at a Ku Klux Klan rally, they were comfortable ideologically, but not in terms of corporate culture. - Author: Paul Beatty
Mod Culture quotes by Paul Beatty
#39. One of the most universal numbing strategies is what I call crazy-busy. I often say that when they start having twelve-step meetings for busy-aholics, they'll need to rent out football stadiums. We are a culture of people who've bought into the idea that if we stay busy enough, the truth of our lives won't catch up with us. - Author: Brene Brown
Mod Culture quotes by Brene Brown
#40. It was once said that this is the land of the free. There is, I believe, a statue out there in the harbor, with something written on it about "Give me your hungry ... your oppressed ... give me pretty much everybody"-that's the way I remember it, anyway. The idea of America is a mutt-culture, isn't it? Who the hell is America if not everybody else? We are-and should be-a big, messy, anarchistic polyglot of dialects and accents and different skin tones ... We need more Latinos to come here. And they should, whenever possible, impregnate our women. - Author: Anthony Bourdain
Mod Culture quotes by Anthony Bourdain
