Social Conformity Quotes

The theatre was created to tell people the truth about life and the social situation.

Stella Adler

Among the Indians there have been no written laws. Customs handed down from generation to generation have been the only laws to guide them. Every one might act different from what was considered right did he choose to do so, but such acts would bring upon him the censure of the Nation.... This fear of the Nation's censure acted as a mighty band, binding all in one social, honorable compact.

George Copway

Homophobia is a social disease.

Bumper sticker

As long as society is anti-gay, then it will seem like being gay is anti-social.

Joseph Francis

Power has only one duty - to secure the social welfare of the People

Benjamin Disraeli

However, there are all sorts of behaviours in the Bible that might be called mad now, but aren't designated as insanity by the text itself. People see visions of angels going up and down ladders, of fiery chariots and, like Moses, who hears a bush talking, and Balaam the prophet who has a conversation with his donkey, they hear voices of those who cannot be said to be present in any usual sense of the word. They also speak in tongues, as the disciples do at Pentecost. Like madness, the visions, the voices and the speaking in tongues are due to external and usually divine agencies. In a world so permeated with supernatural powers, there are no accidents, and in one so riddled with prophets who went into a frenzy while prophesying many more kinds of behaviour were accepted as normal, at least for a prophet or an inspired person, than would be the case now. John the Baptist, dressed in animal skins and wandering around in the wilderness denouncing his social superiors, was not thought of as a de-institutionalized street person who's gone off his medications, but as a saint. And this was the pattern for mediaeval views of aberrant behaviour if you were acting crazy it was a divine punishment, or else you were possessed, by powers either divine or demonic perhaps aided, in the latter case, by witches.

Margaret Eleanor Atwood

I guess the clarification I should make here is that Japan is as potentially racist as anywhere else, but for a developed country, the legal and social protections and recourses afforded to people of differences are lacking comparatively. Racial discrimination is still not illegal in Japan, and this is something the Japanese government promised to fix when it signed the UN Convention on it in 1995. In short, Japan is not an outlier in terms of racism, but it is in terms of protections against it.

Debito Arudou

Socialize with people in such a manner that when you die, they should weep for you, and as long as you live, they should long for your company.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

Companies have three responsibilities: 1) make a profit, 2) satisfy employees, and 3) be socially responsible.

Peter Drucker

Experience has shown how deeply the seeds of war are planted by economic rivalry and social injustice.

Harry S Truman

The defiance of established authority, religious and secular, social and political, as a world-wide phenomenon may well one day be accounted the outstanding event of the last decade

Hannah Arendy

The main vice of capitalism is the uneven distribution of prosperity. The main vice of socialism is the even distribution of misery.

Winston Churchill

Intolerance is the most socially acceptable form of egotism, for it permits us to assume superiority without personal boasting.

Sydney Harris

The historical experience of socialist countries has sadly demonstrated that collectivism does not do away with alienation but rather increases it, adding to it a lack of basic necessities and economic inefficiency.

Pope John Paul II

Socialism is the abolition of human self-alienation, the return of man as a real human being.

Erich Fromm
