Culture is to know the best that has been said and thought in the world
I think that one possible definition of our modern culture is that it is one in which nine-tenths of our intellectuals can't read any poetry
Our culture is superior because our religion is Christianity and that is the truth that makes men free
Publicity is the life of this culture - in so far as without publicity capitalism could not survive - and at the same time publicity is its dream.
Culture is one thing and varnish is another.
Men of culture are the true apostles of equality.
The foundation of culture, as of character, is at last the moral sentiment.
Culture, far from giving us freedom, only develops, as it advances, new necessities; the fetters of the physical close more tightly around us, so that the fear of loss quenches even the ardent impulse toward improvement, and the maxims of passive obedience are held to be the highest wisdom of life.
The end of culture is right living.
Every view of the world that becomes extinct, every culture that disappears, diminishes a possibility of life.
Culture is both an intellectual phenomenon and a moral one.
In terms of fast food and deep understanding of the culture of fast food, I'm your man.
Nothing seems to me to be rarer today then genuine hypocrisy. I greatly suspect that this plant finds the mild atmosphere of our culture unendurable. Hypocrisy has its place in the ages of strong belief: in which even when one is compelled to exhibit a different belief one does not abandon the belief one already has.
American culture is torn between our long romance with violence and our terror of the devastation wrought by war and crime and environmental havoc
There has never been a time in history when simply being pregnant and giving birth has seemed so complicated. This is because there has never been a time in history when being a woman has seemed so complicated. Whatever gains we imagine we have made in work, in relationships and in the wider culture, the struggle to find a positive definition of what it is to be a woman, particularly in regard to our reproductive lives, is as intense as ever. Nowhere is that struggle felt as keenly as in the arena of pregnancy and birth
An army without culture is a dull-witted army, and a dull-witted army cannot defeat the enemy.
The war against Vietnam is only the ghastliest manifestation of what I'd call imperial provincialism, which afflicts America's whole culture - aware only of its own history, insensible to everything which isn't part of the local atmosphere.
I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music.
Everyone in our culture wants to win a prize. Perhaps that is the grand lesson we have taken with us from kindergarten in the age of perversions of Dewey-style education: everyone gets a ribbon, and praise becomes a meaningless narcotic to soothe egoistic distemper.
Man's biological weakness is the condition of human culture.
We are living at an important and fruitful moment now, for it is clear to men that the images of adult manhood given by the popular culture are worn out; a man can no longer depend on them. By the time a man is thirty-five he knows that the images of the right man, the tough man, the true man which he received in high school do not work in life.
Children of a culture born in a water-rich environment, we have never really learned how important water is to us. We understand it, but we do not respect it
There's been progress toward seeing that nature and culture are not opposing terms, and that wilderness is not the only kind of landscape for environmentalists to concern themselves with.
Wine to me is passion. It is family and friends. It is warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It is culture. It is the essence of civilization and the art of living.
A man, fallen on hard times, sold his art collection but kept his wine cellar. When asked why he did not sell his wine, he said, žA man can live without art, but not without culture.
