Society Today quotes by Paul Lee
#3. I don't think the western world is questioning capitalism. Capitalism as a concept is not something that society has written off. But today, there is degree of caution around capitalism. We believe in compassionate capitalism. Growth for growth's sake can never be an end in itself. - Author: Kumar Mangalam Birla
Society Today quotes by Kumar Mangalam Birla
#4. Society today is no longer in revolt against particular laws which it finds alien, unjust, and imposed, but against law as such, against the principle of law. And yet we must not regard this revolt as entirely negative. The energy that rejects many obsolete laws is an entirely positive impulse for renewal of life and law. - Author: Abraham Joshua Heschel
Society Today quotes by Abraham Joshua Heschel

#6. In our society today, we have what I call the "revolving door" fathers that come in and out of their children's lives, and who are known as the part-time fathers of the fatherless sons and daughters. They aren't any better than the fathers who simply disappeared. - Author: Charlena E. Jackson
Society Today quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson

As the web enters its second decade as an integral part of everyday life, our expanded categories recognize those who are pushing the web in exciting new directions. - Author: Tiffany Shlain
Society Today quotes by Tiffany Shlain
#8. I am tired of the cult of youth. The cultural rejection of old age, the stigmatization of wrinkles, grey hair, of bodies furrowed by the years. I am fascinated by Diana Vreeland, Georgia O'Keeffe and Louise Bourgeois, women who have let time embrace them without ever cheating. Society today condemns this, me, I celebrate it. - Author: Tom Ford
Society Today quotes by Tom Ford
#9. Any kind of consciousness that is not related to the production or consumption of material goods is stigmatized in our society today. - Author: Graham Hancock
Society Today quotes by Graham Hancock
#10. A lot of jobs today are being automated; what happens when you extend that concept to very important areas of society like law enforcement? What happens if you start controlling the behavior of criminals or people in general with software-running machines? Those questions, they look like they're sci-fi but they're not. - Author: Jose Padilha
Society Today quotes by Jose Padilha
#11. Depression is something that seems really obscure when you see it in a theater, but when you talk to people who come to see it and hear their reactions, you realize that it is such a prevalent part of life and our society today that it really needed to be told, and still needs to be told. - Author: Aaron Tveit
Society Today quotes by Aaron Tveit
#12. Although socialism is widely held by the establishment to be outdated, the things that are most popular in British society today are little pockets of socialism, where areas of life have been excluded from the crude operation of market forces and are protected for the benefit of the community - Author: Tony Benn
Society Today quotes by Tony Benn

Society Today quotes by Carlos Salinas De Gortari

So I listen to the music of a particular period that I'm working on, and I think inside the music is clues to what is happening with the people. - Author: August Wilson
Society Today quotes by August Wilson
#15. We must get away from this limited *I did this and I did that* and the self-centeredness, that dominates our society Today. It must be a privilege to serve members of society. Not that we want rewards or medals or honor for what we do, because it is just an honor to do it, if you cannot work for that, than you missed the boat. You don't understand the teachings of the wisest men ever lived. - Author: Jacque Fresco
Society Today quotes by Jacque Fresco
#16. Imprisonment, as it exists today, is a worse crime than any of those committed by its victims. - Author: George Bernard Shaw
Society Today quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#17. I've always wanted to work with dogs, so in high school, I worked at the Humane Society for a little while. I honestly think, even today, that would be the other career I would go into. Somehow I would be involved with animals. - Author: Maggie Lawson
Society Today quotes by Maggie Lawson
#18. We have an epidemic of insecure people in our society today. - Author: Joyce Meyer
Society Today quotes by Joyce Meyer
#19. What today's business reality makes clear is that brands cannot survive in a society that is failing economically, socially, ethically, and morally. - Author: Simon Mainwaring
Society Today quotes by Simon Mainwaring
#20. Our society values alert, problem-solving consciousness, and it devalues all other states of consciousness. Any kind of consciousness that is not related to the production or consumption of material goods is stigmatized in our society today. Of course we accept drunkenness. We allow people some brief respite from the material grind. A society that subscribes to that model is a society that is going to condemn the states of consciousness that have nothing to do with the alert problem-solving mentality. - Author: Graham Hancock
Society Today quotes by Graham Hancock
#21. Well, as a militant feminist, I believe in complete equality with men: intellectual, professional, economic, social and sexual; they're all equally essential, and they're all equally lacking in American society today. - Author: Madalyn Murray O'Hair
Society Today quotes by Madalyn Murray O'Hair
#22. It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be...
  This, in turn, means that our statesmen, our businessmen, our everyman must take on a science fictional way of thinking. - Author: Isaac Asimov
Society Today quotes by Isaac Asimov
#23. Simply that we are mirroring the trends in society, at any given time smuggling was an issue in the seventies, corruption is an issue today, and we faithfully reflect those issues. - Author: Ajay Devgan
Society Today quotes by Ajay Devgan
#24. We live in a world where people are so busy trying to find someone that's "good enough" for them, that they have failed to stop and ask themselves if they are in fact good enough for other people! This is the result of a feeling of false entitlement that has been instilled in the minds of people today. "Everyone" deserves "the best" from the "Universe" however, nobody is teaching anybody to stop and try to become the best for their own selves and for other people. When everybody thinks they are the best, everybody falls short of the best that they can actually be. - Author: C. JoyBell C.
Society Today quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#25. But in terms of how people live together, how we minimize the prospects of conflict and maximize the prospects of peace, the place of religion in our society today is essential. - Author: Tony Blair
Society Today quotes by Tony Blair
#26. Yet in reality, the likelihood of reaching the pinnacle of capitalist society today is only marginally better than were the chances of being accepted into the French nobility four centuries ago, though at least an aristocratic age was franker, and therefore kinder, about the odds. It did not relentlessly play up the possibilities open to all those with a take on the future of the potato crisp, and so, in turn, did not cruelly equate an ordinary life with a failed one.
Our era is perverse in passing off an exception as a rule. - Author: Alain De Botton
Society Today quotes by Alain De Botton
#27. The idea of reappropriation isn't a new one. The process of turning negative words, symbols, or ideas into positive parts of our own identity – was used for social justice movements long before hipsters thought that being ironic was cool. Whether it is repurposing a racial epithet or taking on a stereotype for sociopolitical empowerment, it's an important process that has been around for thousands of years and continues to change society today. - Author: Simon S. Tam
Society Today quotes by Simon S. Tam
#28. I know that, throughout the world, there are good men and women concerned with the greatest challenges facing society today - poverty, illiteracy, and disease. - Author: Nelson Mandela
Society Today quotes by Nelson Mandela
#29. Today's society will ignore almost any form of public behavior except getting in the express line with two extra items. - Author: Paul Sweeney
Society Today quotes by Paul Sweeney
#30. There are so many parallels in society today [with era of J. Edgar Hoover ] that you can use, whether it's the head of a studio or the head of an organization, a major newspaper, a major factory or company, of people who stay too long, maybe, and overstay their usefulness. - Author: Clint Eastwood
Society Today quotes by Clint Eastwood
#31. The desire to "do more in less time" is not a neutral force in our culture; it is the handmaiden of miserable experts, specialists, and leaders. Not everyone has rushed to become efficient. Something else exists on the periphery: an inefficient utopia, a culture of consensus, collectives, and do-it-yourself ethics. A place where time is not bought, sold, or leased and no clock is the final arbiter of our worth. For many people in North America, the problem is not just poverty but lack of time to do the things that are actually meaningful. This is not a symptom of personal failures but the consequence of a time-obsessed society. Today, desire for efficiency springs from the scarcity model, which is the foundation of capitalism. Time is seen as a limited resource when we get caught up in meaningless jobs, mass-produced entertainment, and – the common complaint of activists – tedious meanings. - Author: Curious George Brigade
Society Today quotes by Curious George Brigade
#32. In American Society today, we need to have volunteerism. I truly believe that it is the glue that will hold us together and it will be the energy that will take us into the 21st century. - Author: Barbara Mikulski
Society Today quotes by Barbara Mikulski
#33. A society that has made 'nostalgia' a marketable commodity on the cultural exchange quickly repudiates the suggestion that life in the past was in any important way better than life today. - Author: Christopher Lasch
Society Today quotes by Christopher Lasch
#34. The working class of England today have no vision of society beyond the acquisitive - no version of themselves or their habits as anything other than transitional, on their way up or on their way out. The working class, at best, is a waiting room for people who aim to become middle class if possible. - Author: Andrew O'Hagan
Society Today quotes by Andrew O'Hagan
#35. If we all looked out for each other a little bit more, I think we wouldn't have a lot of the crisis that we have in today's society. - Author: Criss Angel
Society Today quotes by Criss Angel
#36. The only hope of socialism resides in those who have already brought about in themselves, as far as is possible in the society of today, that union between manual and intellectual labor which characterizes the society we are aiming at. - Author: Simone Weil
Society Today quotes by Simone Weil
#37. Today the world changes so quickly that in growing up we take leave not just of youth but of the world we were young in. - Author: Peter Medawar
Society Today quotes by Peter Medawar
#38. This is a deep and personal topic in our society today. Read the papers. America is hurting because of it. For God's sake, speak up. Don't we need to learn respect for people's feelings? What is going to school for? To learn how to add? - Author: Hal Holbrook
Society Today quotes by Hal Holbrook
#39. When I see the cultural diversity that exists today, I feel that we must defend it, and we need Europe, because otherwise we are going to live in a society with a single model, the Anglo-American model. - Author: Jean-Pierre Raffarin
Society Today quotes by Jean-Pierre Raffarin
#40. Even though Pope Urban VIII reversed the pronouncements of his predecessors by declaring slavery unacceptable in the mid-seventeenth century, the vast majority of Protestant Christians in America considered slavery and white supremacy to be absolutely consistent with "biblical" Christianity. It would take American Protestants over a hundred years to make slavery history. Even then, they would find ways to cleverly camouflage the old Doctrine of Discovery and its white supremacist scaffolding under distinctly American terms like Manifest Destiny and American exceptionalism, terms still celebrated in many sectors of US society today. Professor - Author: Brian D. McLaren
Society Today quotes by Brian D. McLaren
#41. Instead of having to be a member of the Royal Society to do science, the way you had to be in England in the 17th, 18th, centuries today pretty much anybody who wants to do it can, and the information that they need to do it is there. - Author: Seth Lloyd
Society Today quotes by Seth Lloyd
#42. One might almost say that to live in society today is something like living inside an enormous comic strip. - Author: Jean-Luc Godard
Society Today quotes by Jean-Luc Godard
#43. That Britain today is a liberal society is largely because of the philosophy and outlook of the Anglican Church, which did so much to shape our core values in the past few centuries. - Author: Robert Winston
Society Today quotes by Robert Winston
#44. 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
Society Today quotes by Amanda Filipacchi
#45. I am appalled to think that some of the people out there, in our society today, think that being different is an excuse to attack and hurt another. - Author: Renae Kaye
Society Today quotes by Renae Kaye
#46. For most people, wages are the most important source of income. Macroeconomic and monetary policies that result in higher unemployment - and lower wages for ordinary citizens - are a major source of inequality in our society today. Over the past quarter century macroeconomic and monetary policies and institutions have failed to produce stability; they failed to produce sustainable growth; and, most importantly, they failed to produce growth that benefited most citizens in our society. In - Author: Joseph E. Stiglitz
Society Today quotes by Joseph E. Stiglitz
#47. If man is not made in the image of God, nothing then stands in the way of inhumanity. There is no good reason why mankind should be perceived as special. Human life is cheapened. We can see this in many of the major issues being debated in our society today: abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, the increase of child abuse and violence of all kinds, pornography ... , the routine torture of political prisoners in many parts of the world, the crime explosion, and the random violence which surrounds us. - Author: Francis A. Schaeffer
Society Today quotes by Francis A. Schaeffer
#48. The stark and inescapable fact is that today we cannot defend our society by war since total war is total destruction, and if war is used as an instrument of policy, eventually we will have total war. - Author: Lester B. Pearson
Society Today quotes by Lester B. Pearson
#49. If you grow up in the South Bronx today or in south-central Los Angeles or Pittsburgh or Philadelphia, you quickly come to understand that you have been set apart and that there's no will in this society to bring you back into the mainstream. - Author: Jonathan Kozol
Society Today quotes by Jonathan Kozol
#50. It's things like Wikipedia that help us to advance as a society and help us to accelerate our evolution. If you're a researcher and you need some answer to something, and in today's world you can find it this quickly, it allows you to develop whatever you are doing much faster. - Author: Kim Dotcom
Society Today quotes by Kim Dotcom
#51. Saudi Arabia has also changed. People today are connecting with each other all across the world through small gadgets and television. It's a different society. - Author: Sultan Bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud
Society Today quotes by Sultan Bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud
#52. Society today is being fragmented by a way of thinking that is inherently short-sighted because it disregards the full horizon of truth - the truth about God and about us. By its nature, relativism fails to see the whole picture. It ignores the very principles that enable us to live and flourish in unity, order and harmony. - Author: Pope Benedict XVI
Society Today quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#53. The problem of the house is a problem of the epoch. The equilibrium of society today depends upon it. Architecture has for its first duty, in this period of renewal, that of bringing about a revision of values, a revision of the constituent elements of the house. - Author: Le Corbusier
Society Today quotes by Le Corbusier
#54. Corruption, the greatest single bane of our society today. - Author: Olusegun Obasanjo
Society Today quotes by Olusegun Obasanjo
#55. To live in society today is like living in one enormous comic-strip. - Author: Jean-Luc Godard
Society Today quotes by Jean-Luc Godard
#56. I don't believe athletes should be role models ... We're a one-shot deal, one in a million, so we should be the least likely role models ... I think one of the problems in society today is that we don't stress education enough, because we glorify athletes, actors and actresses. - Author: Charles Barkley
Society Today quotes by Charles Barkley
#57. I said that every Discipline has its corresponding freedom. What freedom corresponds to submission? It is the ability to lay down the terrible burden of always needing to get our own way. The obsession to demand that things go the way we want them to go is one of the greatest bondages in human society today. - Author: Richard J. Foster
Society Today quotes by Richard J. Foster
#58. Inasmuch as the trend in society today is rapidly moving away from the values and principles the Lord has given us, we will almost certainly be called upon to defend that which we believe. Will we have the courage to do so? - Author: Thomas S. Monson
Society Today quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#59. Is that a bad thing?" He angled his wineglass. "Every aspect of society today

contrives to muddy our vision. To make us want things we don‟t need. Need things

we don‟t want. Strip all of that away and cut to your deathbed." He clinked their

glasses together. "That‟s the essence of a life. - Author: Jianne Carlo
Society Today quotes by Jianne Carlo
#60. The poverty one still sees in America today is more shocking to me than anything I have seen in Ethiopia or Calcutta or Manila, and has made me, as someone living in a society of great wealth and someone who's never had to worry about the next meal, think seriously about what universal responsibility really means. - Author: Pico Iyer
Society Today quotes by Pico Iyer
#61. I don't believe people die from hard work. They die from stress and worry and fear - the negative emotions. Those are the killers, not hard work. The fact is, in our society today, most people don't understand what hard work is all about. - Author: Arthur L. Williams, Jr.
Society Today quotes by Arthur L. Williams, Jr.
#62. The full implications of feminism will evolve over time, as we organize, experiment, think, analyze, and revise our ideas and strategies in light of our experiences. No theory emerges in full detail overnight; the dominant theories of our day have expanded and changed over many decades. That it will take time should not discourage us. That we might fail to pursue our ideas - given the enormous need for them in society today - is unconscionable. - Author: Charlotte Bunch
Society Today quotes by Charlotte Bunch
#63. The problem of society today: An absolute lifestyle of entitlement. People gauge everything by "feeling", meaning whatever they feel like doing or whatever they don't feel like doing. Passion is valued over dedication. Instant gratification is prized over true fulfillment. They don't know that more than feeling; intuition is the better key. They don't know that more than passion; fulfillment and dedication are the better keys. True passion will produce dedication and ultimately - fulfillment. If not, then it should not be called passion; it should just be called a lack of self control/ immaturity. - Author: C. JoyBell C.
Society Today quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#64. We live in a very pluralistic society today. There are Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, atheists, Roman Catholics, Evangelical Christians, and Christians like me. There are a wide variety of religious expressions in this country. I think they all must be treated with respect and none of them must be given priority in the public arena. - Author: John Shelby Spong
Society Today quotes by John Shelby Spong
#65. The desire to transcend one's own ego boundaries, to share completely, even for a moment, the consciousness of another person must be a universal longing. It motivates many of our activities from taking drugs to making love, and lies behind the search for new ways of getting close to one another that is so intense in our society today. - Author: Andrew Weil
Society Today quotes by Andrew Weil
#66. To assert in any case that a man must be absolutely cut off from society because he is absolutely evil amounts to saying that society is absolutely good, and no-one in his right mind will believe this today. - Author: Albert Camus
Society Today quotes by Albert Camus
#67. In today's society we sometimes forget to balance our hearts and our heads; this is the reason we stop laughing. - Author: Yakov Smirnoff
Society Today quotes by Yakov Smirnoff
#68. The future of our society today lies in the legacy we leave behind for our children. - Author: Abdulazeez Henry Musa
Society Today quotes by Abdulazeez Henry Musa
#69. You've never really know what it's like to trust God to provide for you today, because you've got today provided for. And probably tomorrow too. Maybe even into next winter, with all the food socked away in that extra freezer in the garage. - Author: Craig Groeschel
Society Today quotes by Craig Groeschel
#70. There has been a huge advance in technology, which has improved the safety of the cars incredibly, but there are still some heavy crash impacts and in certain circumstances there is still the chance of fire today. - Author: Jackie Stewart
Society Today quotes by Jackie Stewart
#71. I loved retail from the beginning, and I still love it today. - Author: Sam Walton
Society Today quotes by Sam Walton
#72. I didn't want to live in an Islamic society because I knew I wasn't going to be a first-class citizen, and I knew I was not going to be able to keep doing what I was doing as an actress. - Author: Shohreh Aghdashloo
Society Today quotes by Shohreh Aghdashloo
#73. Be warned that if you wish, as I do, to build a society in which individuals cooperate generously and unselfishly towards a common good, you can expect little help from biological nature. - Author: Richard Dawkins
Society Today quotes by Richard Dawkins
#74. We are humanity, the banner read. Wrong. We're pale reflections of it, weak shadows, distant echoes. - Author: Rick Yancey
Society Today quotes by Rick Yancey
#75. I have the sudden thought that Monotheism etc. may not be 'Progress' after all, as I had been taught in school and life under the (unconscious) influence of Hegel. My Damascus: 'But then the Jews were wrong!?' The Chosen People not chosen for Beauty like the Greeks? Only for Morality, and what a Morality: the curses of J.C.! I have never recovered from my 'Damascus', and today at the age of 75, I hold it even with more fervour than 50 years ago. - Author: Oscar Levy
Society Today quotes by Oscar Levy
#76. Saving children in humanity should always weigh greater than all world politics. The children we save today is the future that we save tomorrow.
Bullying Ben - Author: Timothy Pina
Society Today quotes by Timothy Pina
#77. One problem with being a leader, is that even among your friends you are alone, for it is you
and you alone
to whom the others look for final guidance. - Author: Trenton Lee Stewart
Society Today quotes by Trenton Lee Stewart
#78. The outlaw, the revolutionary, the cabbalist or member of a secret society, indeed heretics of all kinds are of a highly associative if not sociable disposition, and a certain element of play is prominent in all their doings. - Author: Johan Huizinga
Society Today quotes by Johan Huizinga
#79. There's no such thing as sexism against men. That's because sexism is prejudice + power. Men are the dominant gender with power in society. - Author: Anita Sarkeesian
Society Today quotes by Anita Sarkeesian
#80. YAZIDIS AND CHRISTIANS WANT TO BE FREE OF NIGHT MIST AND BEHEADING DRIFT! - Author: Widad Akreyi
Society Today quotes by Widad Akreyi
#81. The nuclear arms race is over, but the ethical problems raised by nonmilitary technology remain. The ethical problems arise from three "new ages" flooding over human society like tsunamis. First is the Information Age, already arrived and here to stay, driven by computers and digital memory. Second is the Biotechnology Age, due to arrive in full force early in the next century, driven by DNA sequencing and genetic engineering. Third is the Neurotechnology Age, likely to arrive later in the next century, driven by neural sensors and exposing the inner workings of human emotion and personality to manipulation. - Author: Freeman Dyson
Society Today quotes by Freeman Dyson
#82. Today I ask you in the name of Christ and the Church, never tire of being merciful. - Author: Pope Francis
Society Today quotes by Pope Francis
#83. More to the point, what was the lesson that the first Christians drew from crucifixion? Today such a barbarity might galvanize people into opposing brutal regimes, or demanding that such torture never again be inflicted on a living creature. But those weren´t the lessons the early Christians drew at all. No, the execution of Jesus is The Good News, a necessary step in the most wonderful episode in history. In allowing the crucifixion to take place, God did the world an incalculable favor. Though infinitely powerful, compassionate, and wise, he could think of no other way to reprieve humanity from punishment for its sins (in particular, for the sin of being descended from a couple who had disobeyed him) that to allow, an innocent man (his son no less) to be impaled through the limbs and slowly suffocate in agony. By acknowledging that this sadistic murder was a gift of divine mercy, people could earn eternal life. And if they failed to see the logic in all this, their flesh would be seared by fire for all eternity. - Author: Steven Pinker
Society Today quotes by Steven Pinker
#84. I want the society in which I live to be clear about the reality of our families; to know all the ways in which we avoid the issues of violence, abuse, and societal contempt; and to see survivors as more than victims. If we know more about what it means to survive abuse, we will be better able to help those still caught in the whole shameful secret world of physical and sexual violence. - Author: Dorothy Allison
Society Today quotes by Dorothy Allison
#85. If my life were a book and you read it backward, nothing would change. Today is the same as yesterday. Tomorrow will be the same as today. In the book of Maddy, all the chapters are the same.
Until Olly. - Author: Nicola Yoon
Society Today quotes by Nicola Yoon
#86. All took leave from life in the manner which most suited them. Some praying, some deliberately drunk, others lustfully intoxicated for the last time. But the mothers stayed up to prepare the food for the journey with tender care, and washed their children and packed their luggage; and at dawn the barbed wire was full of children's washing hung out in the wind to dry. Nor did they forget the diapers, the toys, the cushions and the hundreds other small things which mothers remember and which children always need. Would you not do the same? If you and your child were going to die tomorrow, would you not give him to eat today? - Author: Primo Levi
Society Today quotes by Primo Levi
#87. In every walk of life each man puts on a personality and outward appearance so as to look what he wants to be thought; in fact you might say that society is entirely made up of assumed personalities. - Author: Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Society Today quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#88. Relativity was a highly technical new theory that gave new meanings to familiar concepts and even to the nature of the theory itself. The general public looked upon relativity as indicative of the seemingly incomprehensible modern era, educated scientists despaired of ever understanding what Einstein had done, and political ideologues used the new theory to exploit public fears and anxieties-all of which opened a rift between science and the broader culture that continues to expand today. - Author: David C. Cassidy
Society Today quotes by David C. Cassidy
#89. Nekhbet shrieked in alarm. I turned to see what was going on. Immediately, I wished I could burn my eyes out of my head.

Liz made a gagging sound. "Lord, no! That's wrong!"

"Agh!" Emma shouted, in perfect baboon-speak. "Make him stop!"

Bes had indeed put on his ugly outfit.He climbed onto the roof of the limo and stood there, legs planted, arms akimbo, like Superman- except with only the underwear. For those faint of heart I wont go into detail, but Bes, all of a meter tall, was showing off his disgusting physique- his potbelly, hairy limbs, awful feet, gross flabby bits- and wearing only a blue Speedo. Imagine the worst looking person you've ever seen on a public beach- the person for whom swimwear should be illegal. Bes looked worse than that.

I wasn't sure what to say except: "Put some clothes on!"

Bes laughed= the sort of guffaw that says Ha-ha! I'm amazing!
"Not until they leave," he said. "Or I'll be forced to scare them back to the Duat."

"This is not your affair, dwarf god!" Nekhbet snarled, averting her eyes from his horribleness. "Go away!"

"These children are under my protection," Bes insisted

"I don't know you," I said. "I never met you before today."

"Nonsense. You expressly asked for my protection."

"I didn't ask for the Speedo Patrol!"

Bes leaped off the limo and landed in front of my circle placing himself between Babi and me. The dwa - Author: Rick Riordan
Society Today quotes by Rick Riordan
#90. I think it's such a risky thing doing interviews. I try to limit the amount of interviews that I do because no one is that interesting especially when you're not really saying anything. And I don't particularly want to be an character in society or whatever. - Author: Robert Pattinson
Society Today quotes by Robert Pattinson
#91. Ideal society is a drama enacted exclusively in the imagination. - Author: George Santayana
Society Today quotes by George Santayana
#92. Get some perspective. A lot of things that may aggravate you only do so because you have the luxury of not wrestling with bigger issues. Today, be thankful for everything you have: being alive, your friends and family, your health, a roof over your head, something to eat, clean water to drink, indoor plumbing, heating, air conditioning, clothes, shoes, a job, and freedoms. Many, many people have it worse. - Author: Dinah Sanders
Society Today quotes by Dinah Sanders
#93. people (to quote the researchers) had achieved an astonishing amount (Kell et al., 2013). They had become high-ranking politicians, CEOs of companies, high-ups in government agencies, distinguished academics, journalists for well-known newspapers, artists and musical directors. They had been awarded patents, grant money and prizes, and had produced plays, novels, and a huge amount of economic value. They had, in other words, made incalculable contributions to society, for everyone's benefit. - Author: Stuart Ritchie
Society Today quotes by Stuart Ritchie
#94. You used to have to sing and convey emotion, and now, well, technically you can do anything with technology. It sucks for music today, but that's why that old music feels so good to me. - Author: Christina Aguilera
Society Today quotes by Christina Aguilera
#95. Blade Runner was the godfather of all these fantastic movies that occur today. What's frustrating is that we're short of really great writing and great ideas. Blade Runner was full of them. - Author: Ridley Scott
Society Today quotes by Ridley Scott
#96. If you're not careful to think and speak words of faith, worry will creep in, and it will not only steal your peace and joy, it will steal your 'today.' The present is the greatest gift God ever gives us. So hold on to the peace that's yours in Christ. Don't let it go. - Author: Joyce Meyer
Society Today quotes by Joyce Meyer
#97. I used to get bullied by the popular girls at school. Today I am the popular girl, and the bullies come to my show - Author: Lady Gaga
Society Today quotes by Lady Gaga
#98. When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the LORD your God for the good land he has given you. Be careful that you do not forget the LORD your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day. Otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied, when you build fine houses and settle down,and when your herds and flocks grow large and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied,then your heart will become proud and you will forget the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery ... But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today. - Author: Anonymous

#99. A homeless man visited my store today. The few quarters that he had in his pocket he invested on books. I offered him free books, but he insisted on giving me his quarters. He walked away filled with joy as if he possessed the world's riches in his hands. In a way, he did. He left me smiling and knowing that he was wealthier than many others ...

#100. Whenever a woman makes a stand for strengthening the social status and equality of women in the workforce, in the media, in society; support her. Don't go bashing her base on whether she is one kind of feminist or another, or how she looks, how she sounds, or how she is not militant enough. Women throughout history have made strides for the plight of women by their actions as subtle or as loud as they are. But mostly by being a woman of conviction and example. STRONG WOMEN come in ALL SHAPES and SIZES. - Strong by Kailin Gow - Author: Kailin Gow
Society Today quotes by Kailin Gow
#101. ...It's not something shared with society, but rather its a personal possession. I've never thought that I wanted to share morality with someone. I feel it's like a white canvas on which nothing is yet drawn, a silent room which accepts any sounds of music and nature, a litmus paper that has not yet been dipped into a solution. In future, it will be a white canvas on which anyone should be allowed to draw anything. - Author: Ayako Sono

#103. Anyone can be made to feel like an outsider. It's up to the people who have the power to exclude. Often it's on the basis of race. Depending on a culture's fears and biases, Jews can be treated as outsiders. Muslims can be treated as outsiders. Christians can be treated as outsiders. The poor are always outsiders. The sick are often outsiders. People with disabilities can be treated as outsiders. Members of the LGBTQ community can be treated as outsiders. Immigrants are almost always outsiders. And in most every society, women can be made to feel like outsiders - even in their own homes.
Overcoming the need to create outsiders is our greatest challenge as human beings. It is the key to ending deep inequality. We stigmatize and send to the margins people who trigger in us the feelings we want to avoid. This is why there are so many old and weak and sick and poor people on the margins of society. We tend to push out the people who have qualities we're most afraid we will find in ourselves - and sometimes we falsely ascribe qualities we disown to certain groups, then push those groups out as a way of denying those traits in ourselves. This is what drives dominant groups to push different racial and religious groups to the margins.
And we're often not honest about what's happening. If we're on the inside and see someone on the outside, we often say to ourselves, "I'm not in that situation because I'm different. But that's just pride talking. We could easily be that pers - Author: Melinda Gates

#104. Yesterday is a memory and tomorrow is a dream. Today is the day to make your mark - to make a difference. - Author: Shawn Phillips
Society Today quotes by Shawn Phillips
#105. We're in our own world, and we're in the world that has been given us outside, and the problem is to achieve3 a harmonious relationship between the two. I come into this society, so I've got to live in terms of this society. It's ridiculous not to live in terms of this society because, unless I do, I'm not living. But I mustn't allow this society to dictate to me how I should live. One has to build up one's own system that may violate the expectations of the society, and sometimes society doesn't accept that. But the task of life is to live within the field provided by the society that is really supporting you. - Author: Joseph Campbell
Society Today quotes by Joseph Campbell
#106. Today, you've got hedge fund billionaires aligned with Karl Rove, running ads against me to try to get Democrats to vote for you [Bernie Sanders]. I know this game. I'm going to stop this game. - Author: Hillary Clinton
Society Today quotes by Hillary Clinton
#107. No state of society or laws can render men so much alike but that education, fortune, and tastes will interpose some differences between them; and though different men may sometimes find it their interest to combine for the same purposes, they will never make it their pleasure. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Society Today quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#108. As for queueing-up, during the past five or ten years it has become what the psychologists call a conditioned reflex. If you put a dozen English people together, they form themselves into a queue almost instinctively. - Author: George Orwell
Society Today quotes by George Orwell

#110. As soon as she was close, she whispered, "you've got to get out of here."
"No, you've got to get out of here," he told her. "Go downstairs. Go now."
"No," she countered. "You go."
"Why?" he asked.
"You tell me first."
But before they could say another word, the last elevator slid slowly open and two men in masks rushed out. From the opposite side of the of the ballroom, shots rang out, rapid fire, piercing the ceiling, plaster falling onto the dance floor like snow.
And then Hale and Macey whispered in unison, "Because of that. - Author: Ally Carter

Society Today quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#112. We have become so quick and effective in building things today. It would be easy to build another Pyramid of Giza or another Great Wall. But these buildings haven't withstood the test of time because of their building quality. They stand tall because they have a symbolic value, they represent a culture. - Author: Zhang Xin
Society Today quotes by Zhang Xin
#113. One of the basics of a good system of innovation is diversity. In some ways, the stronger the culture (national, institutional, generational, or other), the less likely it is to harbor innovative thinking. Common and deep-seated beliefs, widespread norms, and behavior and performance standards are enemies of new ideas. Any society that prides itself on being harmonious and homogeneous is very unlikely to catalyze idiosyncratic thinking. Suppression of innovation need not be overt. It can be simply a matter of peoples walking around in tacit agreement and full comfort with the status quo. - Author: Nicholas Negroponte
Society Today quotes by Nicholas Negroponte
#114. Why don't you admit I've been robbed of my musical career because society can't handle my innate sexuality? - Author: Shelly Laurenston
Society Today quotes by Shelly Laurenston
#115. I can imagine no greater catastrophe than if I were mistaken, and the theory were correct that what I consider secondary instincts or drives are actually primary instincts! Because in that case the emotional plague would rest upon the support of a natural law while its archenemies, truth and sociality, would be relying upon unfounded ethics. Until now both lies and truth have taken recourse to ethics. But only lies have profited because they were able to appear under the guise of truth. Under these circumstances, egoism, theft, petty selfishness, slander, etc., would be the natural rule. (26.july.1943) - Author: Wilhelm Reich
