Society


No society has ever taxed or borrowed its way to prosperity. - Derek Fildebrandt

Society can exist only on the basis that there is some amount of polished lying and that no one says exactly what he thinks. - Lin Yutang

Society has gotten to the point where everybody has a right but nobody has a responsibility. - Unknown

Society is defined not only by what it creates, but by what it refuses to destroy. - John Sawhill

Society is like a stew. If you don’t stir it up every once in a while then a layer of scum floats to the top. - Edward Abbey

Society takes action only when gangrene sets in. - H. D. Doan

The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because it is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water. - John William Gardner

There would be no society if living together depended upon understanding each other. - Eric Hoffer
