Well, the first thing is that truth and power for me form an antithesis, an antagonism, which will hardly ever be resolved. I can define in fact, can simplify the history of human society, the evolution of human society, as a contest between power and freedom.
If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.
Unfortunately, we don’t live in a society where you can say whatever you want, and there will be no repercussions. Pick and choose your battles. I think that’s the key.
In just about every area of society, there’s nothing more important than ethics.
A vibrant civil society can challenge those in power by documenting corruption or uncovering activities like the murder of political enemies. In democracies, this function is mostly performed by the media, NGOs or opposition parties.
Happiness is dependent on self-discipline. We are the biggest obstacles to our own happiness. It is much easier to do battle with society and with others than to fight our own nature.
If you had no new technology, and you powered society as we do today – mostly by fossil fuels – you’d have only two choices: Doom yourself to horrific climate change by burning all that carbon and releasing all that CO2. Or power down society, reducing total energy usage around the planet.

Revolution is born as a social entity within the oppressor society.
A civilized society is one which tolerates eccentricity to the point of doubtful sanity.
The problem of how we finance the welfare state should not obscure a separate issue: if each person thinks he has an inalienable right to welfare, no matter what happens to the world, that’s not equity, it’s just creating a society where you can’t ask anything of people.
I believe that every American should have stable, dignified housing; health care; education – that the most very basic needs to sustain modern life should be guaranteed in a moral society.

If we had any nerve at all, if we had any real balls as a society, or whatever you need, whatever quality you need, real character, we would make an effort to really address the wrongs in this society, righteously.
Far from being the basis of the good society, the family, with its narrow privacy and tawdry secrets, is the source of all our discontents.
I use the term ‘disabled people’ quite deliberately, because I subscribe to what’s called the social model of disability, which tells us that we are more disabled by the society that we live in than by our bodies and our diagnoses.
Half of my life, I’ve had people staring at me because they think I’m funny-looking and ugly. The other half of my life, I’ve had people staring at me because they think I’m fascinating. Everything neutralises. It’s more of a statement on society and how weird it is.
Our nation’s founding fathers carefully crafted a Bill of Rights – an articulation of personal liberties woven into the entire fabric of our free society. When any of those freedoms are threatened anywhere, they must be defended and protected everywhere.
I was in every club and extra-curricular activity at high school, and I was in the National Honor Society.
Sex is the mysticism of materialism and the only possible religion in a materialistic society.

Meals make the society, hold the fabric together in lots of ways that were charming and interesting and intoxicating to me. The perfect meal, or the best meals, occur in a context that frequently has very little to do with the food itself.
Girls are the future mothers of our society, and it is important that we focus on their well-being.
Through all aspects of society be it art, design, the financial markets, government, technology or communications we are witnessing unprecedented global transformation – the result of which is impossible to predict.
If those in charge of our society – politicians, corporate executives, and owners of press and television – can dominate our ideas, they will be secure in their power. They will not need soldiers patrolling the streets. We will control ourselves.
There are similarities between being an editor and a tailor. Tailors have a vast supply of fabrics, buttons and thread at their disposal and put it together to make a whole. That’s what an editor does – looks at society at a given time and pulls together the interesting aspects into a single issue each month.
My hope is that light, flexible architecture might bring about a new and open society.
I think the greatest of people that have ever been in society, they were never versions of someone else. They were themselves.
If we don’t change from a world society that worships money and power to one that worships compassion and generosity, I think we’ll be extinct by mid-century. I don’t say that as an alarmist or as a pessimist.
I think our society has sort of built this gender binary, and the way we’ve said it exists does not really exist in nature.
A liberal education is at the heart of a civil society, and at the heart of a liberal education is the act of teaching.
I have spent all my life under a Communist regime, and I will tell you that a society without any objective legal scale is a terrible one indeed. But a society with no other scale but the legal one is not quite worthy of man either.
If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge? We shouldn’t marginalise people for this. They must be integrated into society.

We should be concerned not only about the health of individual patients, but also the health of our entire society.
You can never squash something and assume it’s not going to come back in some fashion. It’s going to bubble up until it explodes. Society evolves to find a better way.
The best things and best people rise out of their separateness; I’m against a homogenized society because I want the cream to rise.
In every human society, there is an effort continually tending to confer on one part the height of power and happiness, and to reduce the other to the extreme of weakness and misery. The intent of good laws is to oppose this effort and to diffuse their influence universally and equally.
A free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular.
A work of art has no importance whatever to society. It is only important to the individual.
I grew up in a society with a very ancient and strong oral storytelling tradition. I was told stories, as a child, by my grandmother, and my father as well.

The functions of the family in a highly differentiated society are not to be interpreted as functions directly on behalf of the society, but on behalf of personality.
Since our society equates happiness with youth, we often assume that sorrow, quiet desperation, and hopelessness go hand in hand with getting older. They don’t. Emotional pain or numbness are symptoms of living the wrong life, not a long life.
The ‘Bohemian Manifesto‘ represents those that actually have to step out of society because they cannot join, but then they become the saviors of society because they create the actual possibilities of change.
Advertising reflects the mores of society, but it does not influence them.
I know that one day all transgender individuals will have the freedom to be who they are, no matter what. And we won’t have to face the cruel judgments of society. We can just live our lives and be treated and respected like everyone else.
I would suggest that faith is everyone’s business. The advance or decline of faith is so intimately connected to the welfare of a society that it should be of particular interest to a politician.
There is no development strategy more beneficial to society as a whole – women and men alike – than the one which involves women as central players.
Ants can live together in solidarity and forget themselves in the community. In a normative capitalist society, everyone is an egoist. In the ants’ civilization, you are part of the group; you don’t live for yourself alone.

I felt that the elegance of pop music was that it was reflective: we were holding up a mirror to our audience and reflecting them philosophically and spiritually, rather than just reflecting society or something called ‘rock and roll.’
Some people ask why people would go into a dark room to be scared. I say they are already scared, and they need to have that fear manipulated and massaged. I think of horror movies as the disturbed dreams of a society.
Building sustainable cities – and a sustainable future – will need open dialogue among all branches of national, regional and local government. And it will need the engagement of all stakeholders – including the private sector and civil society, and especially the poor and marginalized.

Every society needs to examine itself in relation to other societies.
Society attacks early, when the individual is helpless.
I told our employees several times, ‘Let’s focus on the end user, let’s focus on committing to society, and focus on the crisis and doing the right thing, show our corporate social responsibility.’ Don’t focus on marketing and sales. That’s horrible culture.

Politics I conceive to be nothing more than the science of the ordered progress of society along the lines of greatest usefulness and convenience to itself.

If we provide quality education to one generation, poverty will automatically be eradicated from society.
The feminist movement is not about success for women. It is about treating women as victims and about telling women that you can’t succeed because society is unfair to you, and I think that’s a very unfortunate idea to put in the minds of young women because I believe women can do whatever they want.
Athletes can definitely have an impact on society. And it’s great that athletes can be a part of uniting the population.
Cockroaches and socialites are the only things that can stay up all night and eat anything.

I give away something up to $500 million a year throughout the world promoting Open Society. My foundations support people in the country who care about an open society. It’s their work that I’m supporting. So it’s not me doing it.
It is good for society to have this introspection.
Our guiding principle was that design is neither an intellectual nor a material affair, but simply an integral part of the stuff of life, necessary for everyone in a civilized society.

We are shifting from a managerial society to an entrepreneurial society.
One of the most destructive things that’s happening in modern society is that we are losing our sense of the bonds that bind people together – which can lead to nightmares of social collapse.
Socrates gave a lifetime to the outpouring of his substance in the shape of the greatest benefits bestowed on all who cared to receive them. In other words, he made those who lived in his society better men and sent them on their way rejoicing.
Intellectual property is an important legal and cultural issue. Society as a whole has complex issues to face here: private ownership vs. open source, and so on.
When people treat you mean, you dislike them for that, but not because of their person, who they are.

One of the main lessons I have learned during my five years as Secretary-General is that broad partnerships are the key to solving broad challenges. When governments, the United Nations, businesses, philanthropies and civil society work hand-in-hand, we can achieve great things.
Mental health is an issue ailing everyone – it is so omnipresent in society, we must work towards making it better.
Bigotry or prejudice in any form is more than a problem; it is a deep-seated evil within our society.

New technologies always reshape society, and it’s always tempting to worry about them solely for this reason.

How a society treats its disabled is the true measure of a civilization.
Vampires are sleek demons for good times. They suavely leech off society – like investment bankers who plunder outsize shares of deals for themselves or rapacious fund managers.

In any authoritarian society, the possessor of power dictates, and if you try and step outside, he will come after you.

We cannot imagine democracies without a vibrant civil society.
The first sign of corruption in a society that is still alive is that the end justifies the means.

The sign of a good society is where talent is respected.
Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.

If God would have wanted us to live in a permissive society He would have given us Ten Suggestions and not Ten Commandments.
I’m a Sufi Muslim, I would say. I believe in using the medium to create a good vibration because art is so important to society. Some projects I don’t do because I feel that it’s going to create a bad vibe. I don’t do propaganda films that are anti another religion, anti-Muslim or anti-Hindu.

I always said if I could figure out a way to grow Kleenex and toilet paper on trees, we could pull the plug on society.

There are more and more people. Human society’s going to have real problems.

Society is one vast conspiracy for carving one into the kind of statue likes, and then placing it in the most convenient niche it has.
We live in a very unequal society.
More than 30 years ago, when I had embarked upon the fight against child labour, it was not even considered an issue worth any discussion. It was accepted as a way of life in India, much like it was in other countries. Today, no country or business or society can throw this issue away.
I detest jokes – when somebody tells me one, I feel my IQ dropping; the brain cells start to disappear. But something is funny when the person delivering the line doesn’t know it’s funny or doesn’t treat it as a joke. Maybe it comes from a place of truth, or it’s a sort of rage against society.

I have observed that society in general always seems to honor its living conformists and its dead troublemakers.

I feel like it’s actually everybody’s responsibility to use whatever platform they have to do good in the world, basically, and to try to make our society better, whether you’re an accountant or an activist or an athlete or whatever it is. I think it’s everybody’s responsibility.
There are two ‘faiths’ which can uphold humans: faith in God and faith in oneself. And these two faiths should exist side by side: the first belongs to one’s inner life, the second to one’s life in society.

Art, freedom and creativity will change society faster than politics.
